Raj Bhushan (Hindi: राज भूषण) meaning Ornament of the Nation is the second highest civilian honorific title of the State of Vishwamitra. It was constituted on 19 July 2021 by Rashtradhyaksh Dhrubajyoti Roy through ROYAL DECREE No. - 193/2021: in order to recognize the highest and significant contributions made by individuals towards the nation. The honorific title of Raj Bhushan ranks below Raj Ratna. Both the titles can be conferred on citizens as well as foreigners but can not be conferred on a member of the national royal families.

The grant of the title made on foreigners is accompanied by the grant of honorary citizenship of the nation. Despite being the highest title, it is not included in the honours system and does not grant any special privilege, rank or status on the recipients and does not accompany any monetary benefits. The title of "Raj Bhushan" can also be compared to the former civilian awards of Padma Ratna and Bhushan Ratna.
