An Austenasian Territory is a type of division of the Empire of Austenasia, locally administered by a Governor. In accordance with the Empire of Austenasia Act 2013, "Territories are uninhabited territories which are... fully incorporated into Austenasia." As with Towns, Territories are on the lowest tier of a mainly ceremonial hierarchy of administrative divisions, comprising Provinces, Duchies and Regions. Unlike Towns, however, Territories have no permanent residents, and are not represented in Parliament.
There is no rule as to how Territories must be governed, but out of six, five have had Governors appointed to them by Parliament. The only Territory Territories currently without a Governor is Beith Craobh Iostan, as, although owned and ceded to the Empire by the family of Lord Rear Admiral Alastair Cranston, he does not live in or by the land or visit it frequently enough to consider himself suitable for the role. According to the Acts of Parliament by which they were appointed, Governors "hold responsibility for the maintenance and enforcing of Austenasian law" within their respective Territory.
