Their goal is to unite the former colonies under one flag so they may together live in peace with both their Slavic brothers on the other planets and on Earth. "Rodina" is Russian for "Motherland", translating the name into "Empire of Motherland", but is just commonly known as "Empire of Rodina", since the colonies were named "The Motherland's Colonies", or "Rodiny Kolonii", then renamed "Empire of Rodina".
