Châtaigne and the Gogor Mendiak, officially the United Realms of Châtaigne and the Gogor Mendiak, is a sovereign and absolute monarchy composed of three enclaves in the United States. The country is currently the only Carolinian county in the micronational community.


Etymology

The word Châtaigne means Chestnut in French, and comes from the Chestnut trees famous in the area. The word Gogor Mendiak means Rolling Hills in Basque, and comes from the rolling hills famous in that region.


History

Gogor Mendiak was previously a province of Eleftheria, as was Châtaigne. As Eleftheria was mostly ceded to the Kingdom of Imvrassia, these two areas remained under the absolute control of the former Eleftherian emperor as a personal dominion.


Politics

The Archduchy is an absolute monarchy. The Archduke of Châtaigne and the Gogor Mendiak is currently His Esteemed Grace Peier Rennes. He combines legislative, executive and judicial functions.


Culture

The Archduchy combines elements of Old French, Old English and Alpine customs.
