The Alston Commune (often referred to simply as Alston) is one of six counties within the Kingdom of Northumbria. It borders Hexhamshire to the north-east and Durham to the south-east. It is the smallest county by both population and area by a very large margin, encompassing just the small village of Alston. It is also perhaps the most unique county in terms of its government, created to be an anarchist commune.
