The Monarchy of the Commonwealth of Uskor is the Constitutional monarchy of Zealandia. The current monarch is Charlotte, High Queen of Uskor.
The monarch is elected by the Storþing for life.
The Uskorian monarchy is based upon a loose interpretation of constitutional ideals that stem from sources such as the Norse, the ancient Irish, Anglo-Saxons, the Westminster system and unique Uskorian constitutional and cultural elements.

Personification of the State

See The Crown
The legal personality of a component of the Uskorian state is sometimes expressed by reference to the monarch.
In criminal prosecutions, the state as a party is ordinarily named as "The High Queen"—for instance, "The High Queen v Smith". However, the prosecutors themselves are referred to as representing "the Crown". In the same sense, all state lands are called Crown land, state-owned buildings and equipment are called Crown-held property, and the copyright for all government publications is called Crown copyright.
Actions against a government are often brought against the responsible officer ex officio—for example, "Smith v Minister for State Security" or, more specifically, "Jones v Commissioner of the Uskorian Watch".
