Crown Dependency of Austenasia
|Established||1 December 2023|
|• Governing Commissioner||Soumyadip Sengupta|
Ganapati Vihar is a Crown Dependency of the Empire of Austenasia situated in the Indian subcontinent. An enclave of the Indian city of Kolkata, Ganapati Vihar is comprised of a currently uninhabited residential property.
Ganapati Vihar was established on 1 December 2022 after discussions with its owner, Soumyadip Sengupta, who had requested for the property to be annexed by the Empire. Sengupta was appointed Governing Commissioner of the Crown Dependency upon its foundation.
Although under Austenasian sovereignty, Ganapati Vihar is a Crown Dependency, and so is neither taxed nor has representation in Parliament. The Emperor holds absolute power over the Crown Dependency, exercised on his behalf by the Governing Commissioner, with Austenasian legislation not applying to Ganapati Vihar unless it explicitly refers to it.
