Proclamation of independence of Litania, written in Latin and Jawi script

Despite located in West Java where Sundanese culture is dominant, Litania receives a significant influence from Malay culture. This includes usage of Jawi as official script and Malay titles for all of its royal household. Thus the official title of the king is Kebawah Duli Yang Maha Mulia Seri Paduka Baginda Al-Mutawakkil Alallah Raja Muhammad I Azka Jazila Widodo, Yang Di-Pertuan Negara Litania, Yang Di-Pertuan Negeri Uthmanyystan, Yang Di-Pertuan Negeri Ruslandistan, Yang Di-Pertuan Negeri Guardia, while the prime minister is known as Yang Amat Berhormat Tun Noval Dwy Saputra.
