The Guntanu'tl of the Free State of Renasia was the unicameral legislature of the Free State of Renasia. It was a unicameral legislature composed of the the Chancellor, Vice Chancellor, Meritarch, Vice Meritarch and the Supreme Judge.

The Guntanu'tl was disbanded with the dissolution of Renasia on May 5th, 2015.


The name "Guntanu'tl" means "intelligent council" in Veletan. It consists of the roots "gun" (mind) and "tan" (group of people), with the linking vowel u' marking the previous as a proper noun, and the "tl" ending to indicate the absolutive case (even though the word does not decline in English).


The Guntanu'tl consisted of five people, which were:

  • The Meritarch - the person with the highest meritocratic rating in Renasia.
  • The Vice-Meritarch - the second-highest-rated individual, who formed the Meritarchy together with the Meritarch.
  • The Chancellor - the person with the greatest amount of votes in the yearly elections.
  • The Vice Chancellor - the Chancellor's runner-up, who formed the Chancellery together with the Chancellor.
  • The Supreme Judge - appointed by the other four members.

The Guntanu'tl had the following members between its establishment on March 11, 2013, and its dissolution on May 5, 2015:
