The Duchy of Taysha is an administrative division within the Empire of Austenasia composed of several properties which are enclaves of the U.S. state of Texas.


The name Taysha is derived from the Caddo word táyshaʼ (/tʼajʃaʔ/) meaning "friend". This word was applied, in the spelling Tejas or Texas, by the Spanish to the Caddo themselves, specifically the Hasinai Confederacy, with the final -s representing the Spanish plural. It was from this word that the current English name of the U.S. state of Texas was therefore derived; upon Austenasia annexing claims within this area, it was decided to use a name closer to the original Native American word out of respect for the region's Pre-Columbian inhabitants and history.
