The East, Atlantia, Æthelmearc, Drachenwald, Ansteorra, Trimaris, Northshield, and Artemisia use the exclamation "Vivat!" as an expression of acclamation and joy.

The literal translation of vivat from Latin is 'he/she/it lives', or, more idiomatically, 'long live'.

In some kingdoms, the use of vivat is proscibed thusly: 'vivat' is exclaimed when cheering an individual entity and 'vivant' is used when cheering many people as a group.
