The Order of the Eagle is the highest state decoration of the Republic of Bonumland, established by a decree issued by Empress Isabella I on 1 April 2021. The Order is awarded to citizens or foreigners who, according to the decree: "have made momentous steps towards the greater good or interests of the Republic, especially peace, security, or cultural endeavors." It is conferred upon the pleasure of the Sovereign of the Order: the current Bonumlandian monarch. Contrary to its name, the Order of the Eagle is not an chivalric order; it is instead intended to be a commendation of one's services or contributions to the Republic.

The Bonumlandian monarch acts as the fons honorum of the Order and other state decorations except those conferred by the National Assembly or other state institutions. The equivalent of the Order of the Eagle is the Assembly Medal of Merit, conferred by the National Assembly by a plurality vote; below it is the Medal of Harmony, awarded by the Sovereign to foreign leaders.
