Karnia, officially the Empire of Karnia (German: Kaisertum Karniareich), is an autonomous territorial entity which claims to be a sovereign state but is more commonly referred to as a micronation by external observers. Founded on the Czech Republic, Karnia declared independence in 02 February 2016. It is governed as an absolute monarchy. The Empire of Karnia is a social project based on the history of the Habsburg Monarchy (15261804) operating as a nation state, or using the most well known expression, a micronation. We work as a perfect state: we have the executive authority, the legislature and the Judiciary.


Karnia was founded on 02 February 2016 at Prague, through a political act signed by Anton I Wenzel of Karnia, who was elected as the first Kaiser; Calvin Gustav, the first and acting Minister-President and Louis Taünn, the President of the Reichsrat, the Imperial Council. Karina was founded to preserve and celebrate the tradition of the Czech monarchy under the Habsburgs.

Foreign relations

The Empire of Karnia establishes and maintains diplomatic relations with other nations through the Kaiser with approval of the Minister-President and the President of the Imperial Council.



Coat of arms of the House of Wenzel

The Emperor of Karnia (German: Kaiser von Karniareich) is an elective imperial title and position proclaimed in 2016 by Emperor Anton I, a member of the House of Wenzel, the imperial family of Karnia. The Emperor retain the title of Archduke of Karnia. The wife of the Emperor bore the title of Empress, while other members of the family use in his own right the title Archduke or Archduchess. The eldest son of the monarch bore the title of Crown Prince (German: Kronprinz); other designated successors were called Thronfolger (in addition to their title of Archduke). The current Kaiser is Anton I, the Founder.

The Imperial Council (German: Reichsratt) is the legislature of the Karnian Empire since its foundation. It is a bicameral body: the upper house is the House of Lords (German: Herrenhaus), and the lower house was the House of Deputies (German: Abgeordnetenhaus). To become law, bills had to be passed by both houses, signed by the government minister responsible, and then granted royal assent by the Emperor. After having been passed, laws were published in the Reichsgesetzblatt (lit. Reich Law Gazette), in the same way that used to happen in the Imperial Council of Austria from 1861 to 1918. The current President of the Reichsratt is Louis Taünn.


The Minister-President of Karnia is the head of government of Karnia. In his capacity as chairman of the Government, the Minister-President represents the federal authority of the executive branch. Though formally an equal member of the cabinet, the Minister-President is considered to be the most powerful position in Karnian politics after the Emperor, and as such is the nation's de facto chief executive. The current Minister-President of Karnia is Calvin Gustav.
