The Commonwealth of Realms
El Comunopio de Dominios
The Commonwealth Banner or Bandera del Comunopio is the flag of the Commonwealth with the Flor-de-Azu symbolising the unifying role of the Stoinian monarch across all Commonwealth nation. The red & gold represent the hard work & wealth at the centre of the Commonwealth’s goal.
The Commonwealth of Realms is a political & economical international organisation of multiple nations across Pacifica brought together by a shared history with the Kingdom of Stoinia. Typically, members of the Commonwealth have been colonies or territories held by Stoinia during its colonial expansion. Additionally, the Stoinian monarch, Andrei III, plays a central role in this organisation as He serves as the President of the Commonwealth.
Following the Great War, multiple colonies gained independence but wished to maintain relations with the motherland. As a result, in 1958 government officials from both Stoinia & former colonies formed the Commonwealth in the Carraca Conference and founded the principles of cooperation between the member states.
The Commonwealth continues to be a binding force across the South Pacific through collaboration on matters of culture, economy & politics. Often times, Commonwealth Realms help each other in times of need. This has also taken the form of adamant anti-communist sentiments during the Iron Century, especially in former Stoinian territories.

The Commonwealth believes in equality between its members and to form a forum of cooperation. Be it through cultural programs or economic agreements, the Commonwealth aims to form a united trade & political front to ensure stability for all members.
Furthermore, the Commonwealth serves as a way to maintain ties with former overseas Stoinian territories who may have wished more autonomy. Without the wish to stomp the rights of its overseas citizens, the Kingdom of Stoinia instead opted to grant independence and maintain ties through a mutually beneficial political organisation.
Agreements of the Commonwealth contain trade agreements, free movement of capital, free movement of citizens as well as many cultural programs. Additionally, the member states also work together culturally through various exchange programs and technological development projects to strengthen members on the world stage.
The headquarters of the Commonwealth, Palacio Opitaonga, is located in Coruña on Carraca, the central trade hub in the South Pacific. It was chosen because of its central strategic location in addition to show the commitment to treat all ethnicities as equals in the Garāori heartlands. Annual Commonwealth conferences are held in the colonial classical building. Although a palace, it still remains a rather modest building as a reminder of the Commonwealth’s goals.
