The Monarchy of Gapla consists of a largely ceremonial program managed by the Royal Title Service as an initiative to raise money for Gapla.

The monarchy mainly has the power to reorganize itself, manage the funds of the Royal Title Service, represent Gapla as its head of state, and issue and revoke most of the awards and decorations of Gapla. Other than that, however, the monarchy does not have much significant power, as Gapla is a representative democracy as opposed to an absolute monarchy.

Even while these titles are ceremonial, many activists of the Gaplan far-left, including the Socialist Republic Party, have proposed that Gapla stop collecting any funds, become a nonprofit (from the current not-for-profit status), and abolish the Royal Title Service. Others state that the Royal Title Service has opened up the avenue for Gapla to earn money, not tax its citizens, and keep improving the country.

The history of the Gaplan monarchy and Royal Title Service begins with the declaration of Wyatt Baek of himself as the "King" (sic) of the "Principality of Gapla." After he found out what a principality was, he promptly became the prince and declared that all of the princes and princesses were now dukes and duchesses. As there were a lot of Gaplans that found value in the prince and princess titles, a controversy was caused, and from the idea of Chelsea Chen the title of "Sovereign Prince" was founded.

Previously, Gaplan titles were awarded for grants of land, however, today grants of land are not eligible for titles in most circumstances and many of the old titles have been invalidated. After Gapla was reformed as the Federated States of Gapla, the Emperor was made God. This caused a lot of controversy as Gapla was previously a secular nation. However, Gapla was reformed as a "secular monotheistic" nation through an act of the Executive Council, stating that "monotheism is pretty obvious at this point, there's too much evidence for it."

Emma Bunnell made history when she bought the first royal title (princess) for $20.00 USD (the title is now worth $50.00 USD today, a 150% ROI, however, Emma refuses to sell her title, and instead runs a service for others to sell their titles).

List of titles

The Federated States of Gapla is a constitutional monarchy - that is, with a monarchy for tradition and fundraising but with the monarch having no political power simply due to that position.

During the history of Gapla, the monarchy was used to encourage states to verify land and fund the country. However, land grants are not eligible for titles anymore, except in rare circumstances. The following is a list of titles in the monarchy.
