The Principality of Scotia is a member state of the Karno-Ruthenian Empire and is a cultural, religious, and social project resembling a new country.
It is located in Inishtooskert, Republic of Ireland. It was founded by James IX & I, aiming to participate fully in the life of the wider micronational community and to develop to the fullest extent, the stated goals of the principality are as such the establishment a functioning Christian ekklesia and the growth of serious-minded 'new country projects' as a valid and healthy alternative to macronational political life and finally, to examine the relationship between church and state from a complementarian and co-operative viewpoint as opposed to modern secular notions; and to serve as an example of healthy church/state co-operation.
On 20 February 2017, after hours of negotiation between James IX & I and Oscar I, it was decided that the principality would join the Empire, equal to the other member states, strengthen the European side of the micronation, becoming the first state member of Karnia-Ruthenia established on the island of Ireland.
Following the enactment of martial law on 01 July 2018 and the deposition of Prince James on the following day, the principality was ruled by the Command of the Fourth Army until 07 July, when Appinfeldt and Scotia were reorganized to found a single state.
Uniting the Scottish culture of Appinfeldt and the Irish culture of Scotia, the state with geographic possessions on both sides of the Atlantic would be governed by the most eligible of the candidates, Michael of Appinfeldt, who in addition to renowned ability as a military and politician, also had Scottish and Irish ancestry. The merge of the states gave origin to the Grand Duchy, whose name is the Germanic equivalent of Inishtooshkert, the Irish name of the territory of the Principality of Scotia.
