Crimson Empire
The Crimson Empire historically dated its epoch to the reign of the emperor Honorian II, who created the calendar used by the Empire until it was swept away by the Dominion of the New Order. In an unusually modest move, Honorian II didn’t choose his own reign or birth as the calendar’s epoch: year 1 was, instead, the Battle of Noaad at which the Empire was reunified after the Succession Crisis.

República de San Martín
The Sanmartínese institute a civil calendar after the dictator Sebastien came to power in 1852. Rather than set the epoch in 1812, the year that the country gained its independence, Sebastien set it as the date that the liberator José de San Martín died: August 17, 1850.

The Vyaeh
The Orphan Court, the mysterious and unseen ruling body of the Vyaeh trading empire, maintains a complex calendar that is constantly readjusted for relativistic effects and observed celestial phenomena on their homeworld. At one time, they followed a strict lunisolar calendar based around the calculated creation of their world in the old Vyaeh religion, but the link between the two calendars is now theoretical at best.
