The Karaafsharid Empire (Turkish: Karaafşar Imparatorluğu) was a self-declared independent sovereign state, commonly referred to as a micronation by external observers, claiming lands in Antarctica, Europe and Asia. It was governed as a Federal state as an Theocratic absolute monarchy.

The Empire is a "Fifth World" micronation with a score of 12 under the Boodlesmythe-Tallini System.


Karaafşar was choosen as a name for the State by it's founder Şah Deniz Han. It's based upon the word Kara, Turkish for Black which stands for Bravery and the name Afşar which is the name of one of the Oghuz Turcoman tribes which the Monarch is a member of.


The Karaafsharid Empire was established as a result of multiple nations of the Union of Islamic Micronations bundling their forces together into a single state and Caliphate(Ummah). After ideas were shared between the parties involved, it was universally accepted that Şah Deniz Han would assume leadership as Head of State and that a Grand Vizier (Head of Government) would be elected by the State' legislation.

Politics & Government

The state was ruled by an Emperor, who had near absolute power in the Executive, Legislative and Judicial parts of the Government. The Emperor was advised by a council composed of representatives (viziers) from all Beyliks/Emirates which were called the "Divan-ı Bölgeler". Upon request of the Emperor the council may elect a new Grand Vizier (Head Government) to replace the old one.
