About our Dominions

Learn more about the six constituent dominions that make up the Federated States of Gapla.

Gapla is a federation of six constituent dominions.

These constituent dominions have cities as subdivisions within them, and have played an important role in Gaplan history and make up the Federated States of Gapla. They are Gaplastovia, Elemental, Folia Tail, Emeralkia, Unionland, and Cristus.

The Six Dominions

The following is some information regarding the six constituent Gaplan dominions that make up the Federated States of Gapla.

Dominions of Principality

The dominions of principality are Gaplastovia, Elemental, Emeralkia and Folia Tail. These are the four largest dominions, ruled by either a prince (Gaplastovia and Folia Tail) or a princess (Elemental and Emeralkia). These dominions have absorbed a number of small cities that have merged into Gapla over the years.

Each of these dominions are ruled by a prince or a princess, and democratically elects a governor.

The dominion of Gaplastovia is a city-dominion, meaning it contains only one city. It is also called New Gaplastovia, its city form, and serves as the capital city of the Federated States of Gapla. The Prince of Gaplastovia serves as the Sovereign Prince of Gapla.

Dominions of Duchy, Constituents of Unionland

The two other dominions, Cristus and Unionland, are dominions of duchy. Cristus is ruled by a single duke while Unionland is jointly governed by a duke and a duchess. These have absorbed a number of small cities that have merged into Gapla over the years.

Each of these dominions are ruled by a duke or a duchess (in the case of Unionland, a duke and a duchess), and democratically elects a governor. Unionland specifically is a union of two smaller constituent parts, Snakaris and Phoenix, which decided to unify into Unionland. The name signifies that the two constituent parts were two original dominions of Gapla, along with Gaplastovia.

A note on Autonomous Regions (ARs)

Autonomous regions, commonly abbreviated as ARs, are small portions of the Federated States of Gapla that have large amounts of autonomy and act more like independent states. They are usually small nations who have merged into the federation.
