The top half the color of black and grey impenetrable mists, representation of the Shadows: symbolizing the mystery of Reality.
The bottom half completely black, representation of the Darkness: representing the unknowns of Reality.
The Crux: a golden entanglement of seven symbols - a Cross, Ankh, Pentacle, Fairy Star, Medicine Wheel, Triquetra, and Awen - superimposed over both fields, symbolizing the myriad faiths and paths that comprise the Domain, and how we stand togeter to face head-on the mysteries and the unknowns of Reality.
There are twenty-seven stars on the CrossField: representing the twenty-seven current realms in the Domain. Those who have rulers are colored in silver. Those that have not yet acquired their First Rulers - and are subsequently under imperial rule until rulers can be appointed - are colored in midnight-blue. As more Realms come under rule, a blue star will be colored white on the flag, representing them.
Superimposed on the Crux is the Binary: a midnight-blue star rightside up, and a silver star behind it upside down, representing the Imperial District of Fantasia: from where the ur-Lord and High Queen rule the Domain.)

In the history of our nation, we went from twenty-five Realms to twenty-seven, lost and replaced half as many Realm Rulers as we have Realm Rulers, reconstituted two of our Realms, and a host of other milestones too numerous to name here. Even so, whether our activity and growth are fast or slow, we are constantly growing and on the move.
In current years, the unfounded Realms are few, though few of the founded Realms have Realm Rulers to guard and preside over them. Finding those who have to spirit, strength, foresight, and willingness to take up the responsibility of Nobility as a Realm ruler is as difficult as gaining Citizenry in the Domain overall. Yet, the Realm Rulers that stand now are amongst the strong of heart, spirit, and magick: though they themselves would say otherwise. The Realms they guard and rule are ever in good hands, and it is ever the hope that more like them will be gained.
As the Domain is divided into its Twenty-Seven Realms, so are the Realms themselves divided into Provinces. Provinces are divided into Duchies. Duchies into Counties. Counties into Principalities. Each division is provisioned in Domani High Law to have a ruler or rulers to guard over them. This system is put in place because no one person can guard and rule a nation alone. Such an endeavor as the Domain and Realms takes teamwork. As it is, for eighteen years, it is a philosophy that works.
Here is shown what areas in the world comprise the various individual Realms. "Imperial Administration" refers to those Realms that are either unfounded or currently without a ruler. Links to the individual pages for each Realm are in the drop-down menu above, so that you can peruse the pages at your leisure. Each page is complete with vital statistics and information on the individual Realms, including Royal Court(capital city), provinces, current state of rule, etc.
