 Within the Empire itself, the success of the Silimanis campaign greatly boosted the popularity and clout of the aging emperor Dolydorius. The Empire, which had benefited greatly from Dolydorius' expansionism, diverted more and more resources into BRIGHT/LAMBCOW to develop (mostly military) machinery.

-The invasion of Silimanis also changed the way that [[slavey in the Labarean Empire]] took place. While slaves were originally captured or bred, the Labareans found Silimanis to be an industrious area and were not willing to enslave its population fully. Therefore, [[727 LC]] saw the introduction of an Independence Tax in Silimanis, which was to be paid by all non-gnome citizen of the region. By paying the tax, profitable businesses or industrious individuals could continue to operate in freedom, but humans who were not able to provide enough to pay the tax were instead taken up as slaves. Each year, on the first of [[Marat]], slaves could buy their freedom by paying the Independence Tax and free humans could find themselves in forced labor if they did not have adequate funds. In later decades, the Independence Tax became a staple of the Empire.+The invasion of Silimanis also changed the way that [[slavery in the Labarean Empire]] took place.
