Abeldane Crown Dependency
An Abeldane Crown Dependency is a type of division of the Abeldane Empire, which is locally administered by a High Commissioner who represents also the Monarch. A crown dependency under the Abeldane Constitution of 2016 is a self-governing territory that relies upon Abelden for protection and defense and foreign relations. Much of its affairs is currently de facto taken over by the federal government and is responsible mostly for the affairs of the crown dependencies.
Crown dependencies are not an integral part of the Empire and therefore not a part of Abelden proper. Previously, crown dependencies were an integral part of Abelden until the current constitution was formally promulgated. All crown dependencies at the moment do not have any permanent residents and therefore all High Commissioners live in Abelden proper.
Currently, there are five crown dependencies: Eastlands, Trentonshire, Kronenbourg, Sudenlanden and Saademara.
