The Karto–Rionian people (Varkan: ქართლი–რიონელები, kartli–rionelebi) are a Kartvelian ethnic group native to Varkana. The term came to be used around the late 18th century to distinguish ethnic Varkans from the Varkan people who comprised Galians, Kaspians, Svanetians, Tsalians, and other minorities. To be Varkan, according to the first article of the Varkan Constitution, is to be a citizen of Varkana, regardless of one's origin, race, or religion. Therefore the term Karto–Rionian people is used in Varkan polls and studies to refer to the ethnic group that is otherwise referred to as "ethnic Varkans" abroad.

Etymology

The name Karto–Rionian originates from the Queendom of Kartli and the Queendom of Rioni which occupied most of modern-day Central and Southern Varkana.
