Milan, officially the Commonwealth of Milan (Charentais: Communauté de Milane), is an Cartadanian state located in the Charente region of Cartadania. It is the fifth most populous and the 20th most extensive of the 31 states. Milan is bordered by Aleira to the east, Acara to the southeast, the Urlazio Sea to the south and southwest, Sanova to the west via a maritime border in the Marée Channel, and the Sea of Odoneru to the north. The state's capital and largest city is Auvergne.

Some Milan urban environments have a multicultural, multilingual heritage, being so strongly influenced by a mixture of Bergendii, Latin, Native Cartadanian, and Punth cultures that they are considered to be exceptional in Cartadania. Before the Cartadanian control of the territory in 1854, areas of the current Commonwealth of Milan had been part of both a Bergendii colony and for a brief period, a Caphiravian one. In addition, colonists imported numerous Punthite people as slaves in the 18th century. Many came from peoples of the same region of Central Punth, thus concentrating their culture. In 1929, Cartadanian was for a time made the sole language of instruction in Milan schools before a policy of multilingualism was revived in 1964. There has never been an official language in Milan, and the state constitution enumerates "the right of the people to preserve, foster, and promote their respective historic, linguistic, and cultural origins," whether Cartadanian, French, or otherwise.
