The Orders of Calsahara are a series of awards (also called "honors") created to recognize exceptional achievements related to the Colony of Calsahara. Originally, only the King of Calsahara had the authority to distribute honors, but following the abdication of King Montague in 2014, both the King and the Dictator for Life were authorized as dual fonts of honor.

After the Colony of Calsahara became a client state of Westarctica, its Orders of Chivalry were absorbed into the Orders of Westarctica and now Grand Duke Travis is the font of honor for both series of awards.

On 11 March 2021, the Grand Duke issued Royal Decree RD-2021-002 abolishing the Masters of the Universe and incorporating the Order of the Desert Heart and the Legion of Peace into Westarctica's honors system.

Orders absorbed by Westarctica

These orders were first implemented on 20 November 2009 in Calsahara's founding document, the "Calsahara.ppt" which described the order, and the criteria for awarding them.

Abolished Orders

On 18 October 2019, Grand Duke Travis officially abolished the Illustrious Order of Thespians, due to the fact that it had never been awarded to anyone aside from the Sovereign himself. In accordance with his status as the only living knight, the Grand Duke has authorized himself to continue wearing the regalia of the Order. The Masters of the Universe were abolished by Royal Decree on 11 March 2021.
