The formation of the Dank Empire began when the Faqboy defeated Shrek, causing him to return to his Swamp. Plotting a return, Shrek knew he would need an army if he wished to take over the world of Imagination: after all, the Faqboy had utterly weakened the Ogre overlord. It was only then when Shrek had learned of the Claymen. Culturally suppressed, and social outcasts: the Claymen have never been invited to the Frat Parties, and never ever got any pussy. The perfect candidates for this new army, Shrek thought. However, to the dismay of the Ogre, the Clayman were currently divided. Normally, the Claymen always reproduced asexually- a trait they inherited over time after they could never pick up any girls. But when the appearance of a female Clayman appeared, factions were born: and they fought over her. Naturally, Shrek proceeded to destroy the Rebel factions with an erect cock. Thankfully, Shrek managed to defeat the last of the rebel troops outside the capital: resulting in the unification of the Clayman, and creation of the Dank Empire.
