Cumagne, officially the Kingdom of Cumagne is a constitutional monarchy largely based on the culture of the French Monarchy and is located in Bouvet Island. It was created by the King Thomas I on 1 October 2015. On 23 September 2016, Cumagne became the eleventh state of Karno-Ruthenian Empire, although the Cumagnaise Monarchy was kept in power and with great amount of autonomy.

The Bouvet Island, officially by Norway, is an uninhabited island in the South Atlantic Ocean. Covering an area of 49 km², it is 93% covered by a thick ice cap that blocks the coast south and east. The Bouvet Island was discovered on 1 January 1739, by Jean-Baptiste Lozier Bouvet, Prince Slakhallet and honorary citizen of the Kingdom.
Not knowing if it was an island or the northern end of a hypothetical Antarctica, Bouvet baptized this land Cape of Circumcision, the name of the religious feast day of discovery. In 1927, it became a Norwegian island; indeed, no one had yet stayed, that was a Norwegian crew who lived there for a month. In 1971, Norway declared Bouvet Island and surrounding waters nature reserve.
