The Grunkian Commonwealth is a commonwealth that works in a similar way to New Canada. It is an organization to unite all the Grunkian constituent states and protectorate, and is very similar to the St. Charlian Commonwealth. It currently has 3 member nations, which are listed at the bottom of this article.

History

Foundation

On 21 December 2012, Gunho Kim, the President of the Federal Republic of Grunkia announced the creation of the Grunkian Commonwealth. He announced that it was an "organization to unite all the Grunkian protectorates, dependencies, and colonies". Two nations that were already dependencies, joined the organization, and later, Grunkian East Hasanistan was formed.

Inactivity

The Grunkian Commonwealth fell into inactivity only after a month. Grunkian East Hasanistan (later renamed Grunkian Central Asia) and the Republic of Gunhovia left the GC and rejoined their respective countries or were given to other nations.

Revival

The GC was revived two months after inactivity after the Grunkian parliament decided to reform it and re-design the commonwealth.

Politics

The Grunkian Commonwealth is a federal republic. There is a President, who only has the power to dissolve Parliament, and the Governor, who holds power like the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. However, the Governor's and the President's power are limited by the Grunkian Government. The Grunkian Government can declare war on a nation, and the Parliament of the Grunkian Commonwealth can vote whether to declare war on that specific nation or not. Single constituent nations may ask the President of Grunkia whether they can declare war on a specific nation. If the President approves, then that specific constituent nation(s) may declare war. Constituent nations also can have their own legislatures, depending on whether they are colonies, dependencies (constituent), or protectorates. Protectorates tend to have little to no say in Parliament due to the fact they are mostly independent other then relying on Grunkian defence and foreign affair management.
