Soivoda is a collective term used for the nine counties of eastern Ustalav still ruled by their hereditary noble families. The name is taken from the founder of the nation, Soividia Ustav. They include the provinces of Amaans, Ardeal, Barstoi, Caliphas, Odranto, Sinaria, Ulcazar, Varno, and Versex; they also include the blasted region of Ardeal known as Furcina, but now known as the Furrows.
The Soivoda region stands in contrast to the Palatine counties of Canterwall, Lozeri, and Vieland, which since 4670 AR, have thrown off their hereditary rulers, replacing them with councils of prominent citizens.
