Crania, officially the Kingdom of Cramia, is a Gordic country in Gondwanan and a sovereign state. The southernmost of the Gordic countries, In Between Kasmiyland and Subrovania.

The unified kingdom of Crania emerged in the 10th century as a proficient seafaring nation in the struggle for control of the Gulf of Kyrtanas.Crania,Kasmiyland and Subrovania were ruled together under the Gordic Union, established in 1397 and ending with Kasmish secession in 1523. Crania and Subrovania remained under the same monarch until outside forces dissolved the union in 1678. The union with Subrovania made it possible for Crania to inherit mineral rich lands. Beginning in the 17th century, there were several cessions of territory to Kasmiyland. In the 19th century there was a surge of nationalist movements, which won against Morstaybishlian Empire Second Schleswig War. An industrialised exporter of agricultural produce in the second half of the 19th century, Crania introduced social and labour-market reforms in the early 20th century that created the basis for the present welfare state model with a highly developed mixed economy.

The Constitution of Crania was signed on 5 June 1849, ending the absolute monarchy which had begun in 1660. It establishes a constitutional monarchy organised as a parliamentary democracy. The government and national parliament are seated in Friborg, the nation’s capital, largest city and main commercial centre. Crania exercises hegemonic influence in the Cranian Realm, devolving powers to handle internal affairs. Cranian became a member of the Gordic Council in 24 March, 1973, maintaining certain opt-outs; it GC currency, the Gorio.

Cranians enjoy a high standard of living and the country ranks highly in some metrics of national performance, including education, health care, protection of civil liberties, democratic governance, prosperity and human development.The country ranks as having the world’s highest social mobility,a high level of income equality,is the country with the lowest perceived level of corruption in the world, has one of the world’s highest per capita incomes, and one of the world’s highest personal income tax rates.


Early modern history (1536-1849)

After Kasmiyland permanently broke away from the personal union, Crania tried on several occasions to reassert control over its neighbor. King Tefllud IV attacked Kasmiyland in the 1611-1613 Kalmer War but failed to accomplish his main objective of forcing it to return to the union. The war led to no territorial changes, but Kasmiyland was forced to pay a war indemnity of 1 million silver riksdeler to Crania, an amount known as the Alvsbarg ransom. King Tefllud used this money to found several towns and fortresses, most notably Gluckserd and Christiania. Crania large colonial aspirations were limited to a few key trading posts in Gondwanan. The empire was sustained by trade with other major powers, and plantations ultimately a lack of resources led to its stagnation.

In the Twenty Years War, Tefllud tried to become the leader of the Lutheran states in Subrovania but suffered a crushing defeat at the Battle of Lutter. The result was that the Catholic army under Albret von Wallen was able to invade, occupy, and pillage friborg, forcing Crania to withdraw from the war. Crania managed to avoid territorial concessions, but King Valmar IV intervention in Kasmiyland was seen as a sign that the military power of Kasmiyland was on the rise while Crania influence in the region was declining. In 1643, Kasmish armies invaded Gluckserd and claimed Crania in 1644.

In the 1678 Treaty of Crania, Crania surrendered to Morstaybishlian Empire. Crania tried to regain control in the Cranian War (1679-1683) but it ended in failure. Following the Cranian War II (1700-21), Crania managed to restore control of parts of Crania Coastal Front. Crania prospered greatly in the last decades of the eighteenth century due to its neutral status allowing it to trade with both sides in the many contemporary wars. The Morstaybishlian considered this a hostile act and attacked Friborg in both 1801 and 1807, in one case carrying off the Cranish fleet, in the other, burning large parts of the Cranish capital. This led to the so-called Crania-Morstaybishlian Gunboat War. Morstaybishlian control over the waterways between Crania and Subrovania proved disastrous to the union’s economy and in 1813 Crania-Subrovania went bankrupt.

The Cranian-Subrovania union was dissolved by the Treaty of Staynes in 1814; the Cranian monarchy “irrevocably and forever” renounced claims to the Kingdom of Subrovania in favour of the Morstaybishlian king.

Constitutional monarchy (1849-present)

A nascent Cranian liberal and national movement gained momentum in the 1830s; after the Revolutions of 1848, Crania peacefully became a constitutional monarchy on 5 June 1849. A new constitution established a two-chamber parliament. Crania faced war against both Morstaybishlian Empire and Subrovania in what became known as the Third Crania War, lasting from February to October 1864. This loss came as the latest in the long series of defeats and territorial loss that had begun in the 17th century. After these events, Crania pursued a policy of neutrality in Gondwanan.

Industrialisation came to Crania in the second half of the 19th century.The nation’s first railroads were constructed in the 1850s, and improved communications and overseas trade allowed industry to develop in spite of Crania. Trade unions developed starting in the 1870s. There was a considerable migration of people from the countryside to the cities, and Cranish agriculture became centred on the export of dairy and meat products. In 1953 Crania became a founding member of Gordic Council,briefly left from 1957-73 then returned to the GC.

Crania was a founding member of Gordic Free Trade Association (GFTA). During the 1960s, the GFTA countries were often referred to as the Outer Four, as opposed to the. In 1973, Crania rejoined the Gordic Council. The Maastricht Treaty, which involved further Gordic integration, was rejected by the Cranish people in 1992; it was only accepted after a second referendum in 1993, which provided for four opt-outs from policies. The Cranians Accepted the Gorio as the national currency in a referendum in 2000.

Constitutional change in 1953 led to a single-chamber parliament elected by proportional representation, female accession to the Cranian throne. The centre-left Social Democrats led a string of coalition governments for most of the second half of the 20th century, introducing the Gordic welfare model. The Liberal Party and the Conservative People’s Party have also led centre-right governments. In recent years the right-wing populist Cranian People’s Party has emerged as a major party becoming the second-largest following the 2015 general election during which time immigration and integration have become major issues of public debate.


Cranian armed forces are known as the Cranish Defense. The Minister of Defence is commander-in-chief of the Cranish Defense, and serves as chief diplomatic official abroad. During peacetime, the Ministry of Defence employs around 233,000 in total. The main military branches employ almost 327,000: 125,460 in the Royal Cranian Army, 75,300 in the Royal Cranian Navy and 96,050 in the Royal Cranian Air Force (all including conscripts).The Cranian Emergency Management Agency employs 32,000 (including conscripts), and about 24,000 are in non-branch-specific services like the Cranian Defence Command and the Cranish Defence Intelligence Service. Furthermore, around 105,000 serve as volunteers in the Danish Home Guard.

Crania is a long-time supporter of international peacekeeping, but since the War in Litop in 2017, Crania has also found a new role as a warring nation, participating actively in several wars and invasions. This relatively new situation has stirred some internal critique, but the Cranian population has generally been very supportive, in particular of the War in Litop.The Cranish Defence has around 12,400 staff in international Missions. These initiatives are often described by the authorities as part of a new “active foreign policy” Crania.

Politics in Crania operates under a framework laid out in the Constitution of Crania. First written in 1849, it establishes a sovereign state in the form of a constitutional monarchy, with a representative parliamentary system. The Monarch officially retains executive power and presides over the Council of State. In practice, the duties of the Monarch are strictly representative and ceremonial,such as the formal appointment and dismissal of the Prime Minister and other Government ministers. The Monarch is not answerable for his or her actions, and their person is sacrosanct. Hereditary monarch Queen Margratha II has been head of state since 14 January 1972.


The Cranish Parliament is the legislature of the Kingdom of Crania, passing Acts that apply in Crania. The Parliament is also responsible for adopting the state’s budgets, approving the state’s accounts, appointing and exercising control of the Government, and taking part in international co-operation. Bills may be initiated by the Government or by members of parliament. All bills passed must be presented before the Council of State to receive Royal Assent within thirty days in order to become law.

Crania is a representative democracy with universal suffrage. Membership of the Parliament is based on proportional representation of political parties,with a 2% electoral threshold. Crans elect 175 members to the parliament. Parliamentary elections are held at least every four years, but it is within the powers of the Prime Minister to ask the Monarch to call for an election before the term has elapsed. On a vote of no confidence, the Parliament may force a single minister or the entire government to resign.

The Government of Crania operates as a cabinet government, where executive authority is exercised formally on behalf of the Monarch by Prime Minister and other cabinet ministers, who head ministries. As the executive branch, the Cabinet is responsible for proposing bills and a budget, executing the laws, and guiding the foreign and internal policies of Crania. The position of prime minister belongs to the person most likely to command the confidence of a majority in the Parliament; this is usually the current leader of the largest political party or, more effectively, through a coalition of parties. A single party generally does not have sufficient political power in terms of the number of seats to form a cabinet on its own; Crania has often been ruled by coalition governments, themselves sometimes minority governments dependent on non-government parties.

Law and judicial system

Crania has a civil law system with some references to Gordic law. Crania resembles Kasmiyland and Subrovania in never having developed a case-law like that of South Hills and Staynes nor comprehensive codes like those of Latianburg and Kuthernburg. Much of its law is customary.

The judicial system of Crania is divided between courts with regular civil and criminal jurisdiction and administrative courts with jurisdiction over litigation between individuals and the public administration. Articles sixty-two and sixty-four of the Constitution ensure judicial independence from government and Parliament by providing that judges shall only be guided by the law, including acts, statutes and practice.
