"In its practical working from year to year, the Commonwealth is, and each State also continues to be as a State what it was as a colony, a Crowned Republic, i.e. a community monarchical in its form, but republican in its spirit and operation, and indeed more democratic than many republics are."

Ceremonial Monarchism (CerMon), also referred to as Crowned Republicanism (CrownRep), is a Non-Quadrant political ideology and the most common form of monarchism today. In a ceremonial monarchy, the monarchy is limited to only ceremonial functions (occasionally also emergency functions), while actually running the country is left up to a parliamentary government.


At the end of Queen Victoria's reign, the British Monarchy's power diminished and pretty much became a ceremonial monarchy. Now the British Parliament and the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom do all the heavy work. All the ceremonial monarchies today are: Andorra, Antigua and Barbuda, Australia, The Bahamas, Belgium, Belize, Cambodia, Canada, Denmark, Grenada, Jamaica, Japan, Lesotho, Luxembourg, Malaysia including the 9 Malay states with a monarch, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Papua New Guinea, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Solomon Islands, Spain, Sweden, Tuvalu and the United Kingdom, with Sweden and Japan constitutionally forbiting the monarchy from having any role in government.

Personality and Behaviour

  • CerMon is usually seen with Mediacracy taking pictures of them.
  • He is laughed at by his uncles whenever he tries to voice his opinion (if he even bothers to say anything).
  • He is very spoiled and is seen pestering his father to give him stuff.

  • Republicanism - Hey man, what are you doing with that guillotine & what do you mean you know what I've done!?
  • Illegalism - Can you stop stealing my crown!?
  • Meritocracy - But I don't wanna work today! :(
  • Showa Statism - Say hello to 1947 constitution.
  • Presidentialism - Not only you are a filthy republican, but you also want for the head of state to have power. You are my opposite.
  • Autocracy - Also wants the head of state to have actual power, and is not explicitly monarchist.
