The Imperial Council of Karnia was the legislative body of the Karnian Empire, a constituent state of the Karno-Ruthenian Empire. It was a bicameral body: the upper house is the House of Lords and the lower house is the House of Deputies. To become law, bills had to be passed by both houses and then granted royal assent by the Emperor. After having been passed, laws were published.

History[edit | edit source]

Karnia was founded on 02 February 2016 at Prague, through a political act signed by Anton I of Karnia, who was elected as the first Kaiser; Calvin Gustav, the first and acting Minister-President and Louis Taünn, the first appointed President of the Reichsrat. Karnia was founded to preserve and celebrate the tradition of the Czech monarchy under the Habsburgs and this way, the Imperial Council was supposed to work in the same way as the Imperial Council of Austria. The Imperial Council was the legislature of Karnia until the new constitution of 2017, that unify the national legislatures, establishing the Imperial Diet.
