Land Claims

The Empire of Austenasia is an enclave and exclave country, consisting of forty eight non-contiguous pieces of land: twelve in Great Britain, seven in the rest of Europe, twenty one in North America, four in Asia, two in Australia, one in Africa, and one in South America. These claims are organised into different administrative divisions: Towns, Marches, Territories, and Crown Dependencies:

  • Towns are populated areas of land that are administered by a Town Council (usually somewhat communal in style) on the local level, and have their ideas and concerns voiced in Parliament by elected Representatives. Towns can also hold the status of City, which means that they also have an elected Mayor who oversees local government.
  • Marches are populated areas of land that are administered by a Margrave and/or Margravine, but are associated with a Town for electoral purposes, with the March’s residents having votes for and represented in Parliament by the Representative of the respective Town. Marches are separate from their associated Towns.
  • Territories are non-populated areas of land that are, where possible, administered by a Governor appointed by Parliament or the Monarch.
  • Crown Dependencies are areas of land – populated or not – which are not administered by the central government but rather ruled autonomously by Governing Commissioners who the Monarch appoints to rule on his behalf. Although under Austenasian sovereignty, legislation does not automatically apply to a crown dependency, which is under the control of the Monarch and his Governing Commissioner.
