The awards of the Republic are set among three distinct categories: Service, Martial, Artisan. Service awards are granted for selfless contributions to the Republic and may take the form of Officership, volunteerism or being a reliable member who constantly does their best to help the nation grow and succeed. Martial awards are for prowess on the battlefield bringing glory to the name of the Republic. Artisan awards are to recognize those who are dedicated in their crafts and supply the Republic with goods, resources and craftsmanship. Chivalric awards are those which grant access to specific Knightly Orders within the Republic and are accessible to those who have attained knighthood.

Some awards, when specified, will grant promotion to the next higher social rank. If a person is already of that social rank, then no elevation will occur. Additionally, specific awards may carry reserved augmentations that can be added to personal heraldry. Awards are registered with the College of Arms.

Each award is listed in order of precedence starting with the highest on top.
