The Monarchy of Rai (Sabian: raikuragi ra) is the institution that compromises the Monarch of the Grand Duchy of Rai and the entire Grand Ducal Family. The constitutional title that the monarchs holds - Grand Duke for males and Grand Duchess for females. The current monarch of Rai is Tarik, who ascended to the throne on 30 June 2017, following the abdication of Grand Duke Grant. The current royal family is the House of Karjasari, which also reigns in Sabia and Verona; the House of Hasaraši was added to the grand ducal line of succession in 2019.

Rai is an absolute monarchy in which the Grand Duke holds the entirety of political and institutional power. The figure of the Grand Duke concentrates the executive, legislative and judicial power, which is exercised through Grand Ducal Decrees.

Powers and duties

The Charter of Rai, adopted in 2020, codified the extent of the Grand Duke's powers. The Rai monarch has ample executive, legislative and judicial authority, as the Charter states that "from Them originate all state powers in the Grand Duchy." The Grand Duke may delegate some of their political power to a Seneschal to and aid in everyday governance; the Seneschal, in turn, appoints a number of ministers to the Cabinet of Rai, which collectively excercises the Grand Duke's authority.

Legislation in the Grand Duchy is passed in the form of Grand Ducal Decrees, which must count with the Grand Duke's signature and seal and must be published where all Rai citizens can readily access them in order to be valid. The Grand Duke may also allow the establishment of a Bok, or consultative assembly, to give advise and counsel in matters of governance, should the monarch see it fit or due to a growth in popular "demands".

The monarch has more duties than this; listed here are important powers and duties of a monarch. As a federal monarch, the Monarch has also restrictions on legislating laws or enacting decrees that contradicts federal laws or decrees enacted by the Emperor.
