History

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 01 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.

The island benefiting from any port, it is particularly difficult for ships to approach; Embedded helicopter thus proves to be the easiest way to access it.

On September 2016, the relationship between Karnia-Ruthenia with Francophone micronations was at its peak and was shown to be advantageous to the Empire. On 23 September, after negotiations that lasted about a week, the Kingdom became the eleventh state of the Empire after the signing of the Treaty of Nison[1]. In addition to a significant increase in its population, it enriches the cultural diversity of Karnia-Ruthenia, which now had French elements that would be absorbed from the union, whereas Cumagne would improve its own internal policies from their union with a strong and stable government.
