Loravia is a crown city of the Cheskgariyan-Litvanian Commonwealth, and also its second largest inhabited settlement. It is also the largest city within the Grand Duchy of Litvania. It was proclaimed a Crown City (as seat of the Grand Duke of Litvania) on the 22 November 2020 by a royal decree. It is currently inhabited by 5 people, all members of the grand ducal household. The city claims an area of 0.75 square kilometers, and has an elevation of 380m above sea level.

The city is the seat and main residence of the Grand Duke. It consists of the village of Lully in the canton of Geneva. The city itself consists of the central part of the village. It borders the provinces of Trakai, Podolia, and Inflanty.


Settlement in the city's area has existed since antiquity, but was most expanded during Roman times. The land on which the city is located has variously belonged to France, various Genevan city states and duchies, and now Switzerland.

In 2015, the micronationalist Michal Nowacki claimed the city as the capital of his Republic of Litvania, and the city was officially introduced to the micronational world. To celebrate the occasion, the president of the micronation placed a ceremonial Litvanian flag in the city's presidential palace, as a symbol of the continuity of the state, and of the spirit of micronationalism.

In November 2020, after the collapse of the Republic of Litvania and the proclamation of a new Cheskgariyan-Litvanian Commonwealth, the city was proclaimed part of the Commonwealth and the capital of the Grand Duchy of Litvania. It is the seat of the Grand Duke of Litvania and as such has Crown City status within the Commonwealth.


The city is located in the Swiss canton of Geneva, in the commune of Bernex, in the village of Lully. It has a varied geography, featuring a hilly slope down towards a stream surrounded in greenery. The majority of the area of the city consists of vineyards belonging to local inhabitants, with around 40% of the area being built up and residential.
