Wyatt, Prince of Gaplastovia (b. 2009), who is in that capacity the Sovereign Prince of Gapla, is Gapla’s head of state as well as leader of Gapla’s monarchy, which has a long tradition from the early ages of Gapla-Phoenix in 2015.
Originally intended to be a ceremonial and fundraising position, much of the Prince’s role involves representing Gapla internationally and using the monarchy to promote and raise funds for Gapla, including the scheme on the sale of noble titles.
Since Gapla’s restoration in 2019, it has had a monarchy and from then on Wyatt Baek has been serving as the Prince of Gaplastovia, first as the Prince of Gapla and then with many other titles before the realms system was introduced.
