Karnamark is a district of Hurmu found on the western coast of Keltia. The territory consists of a peninsula that is partially disputed by the competing territorial claims of the Hexarchy. As of 1706 AN both parties have undertaken to resolve the territorial dispute via diplomatic means.

Main cities (each forming a municipality) in Karnamark: Ny-Zanzibar, Datret, Kirkjubooð, and Oystra Karnahafn.

The district borders the Phineonesian territory of Tanah Tōnán'hyôrï to the south, the Hexarchy to the north, and the Green to the east.

Defence & security

Main article: Army of Karnamark

Since 1706 AN the locally raised Army of Karnamark has been responsible for the defence and security of the district under a system of subcontracted obligations from the Hurmu Peace Corps. In 1714 AN the Army of Karnamark was reinforced by the 1st March Demi-Regiment of the Regiment of the Blackfriars' which was deployed to the district on a four year contract with the Hurmu Peace Corps.


Alissa Guadalim was appointed Commissioner for Karnamark under letters patent issued by Daniyal al-Osman in his capacity as Prime Minister of Hurmu on 30.XV.1706 AN. She was furnished with orders to establish fortified settlements and a seat of government on the western Keltian peninsula, to commence the apportionment of land for auction and plantation, and to raise an independent regiment for the establishment of peace and order of the colony. She further received, in addition to her written orders, a series of verbal instructions from the Prime Minister regarding the upholding of the rights of Hurmu in those parts of the Karnamark peninsula claimed by the Hexarchy.

In contrast to the situation in Amaland, the 1707 Hurmu general elections were conducted in good order throughout the district under the direct supervision of the commissioner and centrally appointed returning officers. The situation was greatly helped by early presence of paid enforcement officers and the limited number of municipalities to organise, this contrasting greatly with the multiplicity of formerly independent communes in Amaland when the political agents of the main party had enjoyed free rein.

The Defence Service Agreement between the Army of Karnamark and the Hurmu Peace Corps elapsed in 1712 AN without being renewed, owing to the demise of the final al-Osman cabinet. As of 1714 AN the Army of Karnamark remained in possession of its fortified places as a free company, levying fees upon the surrounding communities and receiving a compelled subsidy from the government of the colony. This oversight was addressed once it came to the attention of the administration in Huyenkula, with the result that a new ten year contract (1714-1724) was hurriedly brought into effect under the same terms as before.


Karnamark recorded a population of 1,258,200 persons in the 1710 Hurmu census.
