I make a turn based strategy (steampunk theme). The player manges a country. The map is made of provinces (around 20-30). The provinces will be grouped into "regions" (around 7) to make it more managable.

So there is a lower level of territorial organization ("province") and higher level ("region").

 

Now I need names for these (I think province sounds fine, but region not really).

Like state or prefecture?  Actually I think you might want to replace province with county or duchy, those are smaller.


Phone game idea available free to someone who will develop it (Alphadoku game - the only existing phone game of this type is both for windows phone only and awful. PM for details.)


I want to help design a "sandpark" MMO. Optional interactive story with quests and deeply characterized NPCs, plus sandbox elements like player-craftable housing and lots of other crafting. If you are starting a design of this type, please PM me. I also love pet-breeding games.

Yes, along the lines of state/prefecture.

 

Duchy sounds a bit too medieval, I need it for steampunk.

 

Note: optionally I can go for province being the higher tier and make some lower tier territorial division (below province).

 

Nice list :)

Did you decide on anything yet?

For a steam-punk feel you probably want something Victorian-era-ish, perhaps with province at the higher level and "county" or "borough" at the lower level...

The topic is still valid :)

 

But isn't "borough" a division (part of) of a city? But it sounds Victorian for sure...
