Coat of Arms of the Empire.

The monarch of the House of Götzö-Thomaz-Rocha rule as King of Ruthenia over the Kingdom of Ruthenia (“Lands and Kingdoms of the Crown of Ruthenia”) and as Emperor over the Empire of Karnia (“Lands Represented in the Imperial Council of Karnia”). The micronation bore the official name of Karno-Ruthenian Monarchy, but it is often contracted to “Dual Monarchy” or simply referred to as “Ruthenia” or “Karnia”, but the full official name is “Lands and Kingdoms of the Crown of Ruthenia and the Lands Represented in the Council of Karnia”.

The Empire is a unitary state, which guarantees a degree of autonomy for its administrative regions. The Imperial Diet is located in Persenburg, the imperial capital and seat of the Imperial Court. The Empire uses several macronational currencies, but also have a common currency, the Ruthenian Mark. Persenburg serve as the Monarchy’s primary capital.

The inspiration behind the structure and nomenclature of Karnia-Ruthenia is the Austro-Hungarian Empire, since Karnia and Ruthenia were inspired by the Monarchy of the Habsburgs and the union could be conveniently made the same way as Austria and Hungary did when they were united in 1867.
