Karno-Ruthenians[edit | edit source]

Karno-Ruthenian (Portuguese: Karno-Ruteno) is an official term used to describe the citizens of Karnia-Ruthenia. Due to geography of the Empire, most Karno-Ruthenians do not reside on its territory. Albeit a very similar or even identical ethnicity, language, religion or geographical location of some groups of citizens, the Karno-Ruthenian citizenship it is described, even by the government, as civic nationalism within a nation-building continuous structure, but observers noted some elements of a romantic nationalism due the particular practice of integration of different micronational projects into common language, culture and customs, adopting the development of a common national language and folklore, and the spiritual value of local customs and traditions to create a multiethnic state.

As a declared multination state, Karnia-Ruthenia is also multicultural or multilingual and are continuously developing folklore and customs and merging cultural aspects into a proper unique culture and society. The growth of the Empire since its foundation, and the influx of new citizens made more tangible the sense of civic nationalism and transformed the language, ethnical or religious factors less important to determine the Karno-Ruthenian nationality, but raised the importance to the allegiance to the national principles of respect to diversity and tradition of the Empire and its people.
