Terentia is a Town of the Empire of Austenasia situated in North America. Terentia was founded as a Crown Dependency on 16 November 2013 by an Imperial Decree, transitioning into a Town on 3 December 2014. It is named after the former Emperor Terry I.

Terentia is represented in Parliament by Lord Vice Admiral Eren Lewis, who was appointed its Acting Representative upon Terentia's transition into a Town and elected Representative in the August 2015 Austenasian local elections. Lewis had previously served as Terentia's Governing Commissioner since its annexation, upon which he had designed its original flag. A new flag was adopted on 10 October the following year.

From its annexation until just under a year later on 31 October 2014, Terentia consisted of an uninhabited piece of land situated in the garden of Lord Admiral Lewis' place of residence. On 31 October, Terentia was expanded, annexing the whole of the property by the request of its six residents.

In the summer of 2018, Terentia began to undergo a mass change. Throughout 2017, the cultural and spiritual attitudes of Terentia began shifting towards the culture and music of the rock band, The Grateful Dead. Many began to see the culture and slang of deadheads, the people who followed the Grateful Dead from show to show, come into Terentia. In summer of 2018, the Town Council began officially recognizing this culture, with the flag of Terentia changing, psychedelic substances being legalized, etc.

On 17 October 2018, Terentia expanded with the annexation of an uninhabited exclave to the south-west of the property. This new area of land was named Kush.
