The Duchy of Romitria, formerly known as the Autonomous Duchy of Raisch, was a former member state of the Karno-Ruthenian Empire. It is located within Montgomery County, Maryland. It was founded by Bryant Raisch on 22 May 2015, and consists of one house. It was incorporated into the Democratic Socialist Federation of Nedlandic Republics on 22 May 2015, the Empire of Paravia in August 2015, and was given special autonomous status on 25 May 2016 under the State of Nedland.
Raisch was the only feudal entity ever approved by the DSFR's government, and was its only autonomous municipality. When it was annexed to Paravia on 14 August 2015, it became a vassal state of Paravia and raised to the status of a duchy.
Though it lost its status as a duchy on 4 May 2016, the day Nedland was refounded, its status was reinstalled, and it was renamed the "Duchy of Romitria". It remained the only feudal entity under Nedlandic rule.
In late May 2016, Edward Gunderson and Oscar I of Karnia-Ruthenia, had talks regarding the ultimate status of Romitria in Karnia-Ruthenia. It was then decided, in a joint resolution, that the Grand Duchy of Letzembourg and Romitria would both be absorbed into Karnia-Ruthenia on 31 May 2016, thus making both official member states. On 09 October 2016, Romitria officially seceded from Karnia-Ruthenia and was reannexed by Nedland, being a khanate of Empire of Nedlando-Khorașan until its dissolution on late 2017.
