Estates are the highest level of administrative division in the Kingdom of St. Castle, with four estates that governn the territory and have control over parishes however, have very limited control of Districts, if any. Estate names are derived from many places, mostly using geography of Wyoming, from micronational and macronational history/landmarks, and among many other sources. All estates are established by Royal Decree by the Queen.
