Estates within the Adrian Empire are comparable to households in the SCA, but are structured differently.

The Empire's website defines estates when it says,

"The other type of subdivision is a free-association group, commonly called landed estates. Anyone who resides in a kingdom (for example) may belong to a free-association group within that kingdom. There are no geographic boundaries, other than that of the kingdom."

In the Adrian Empire, it is permissible to have an estate within an estate, for example, a household may be a part of a county.

Households

A household must have at least 5 members. They are headed by a house lord (or lady). They are considered an estate minor, and have a seat on the local estates.

Baronies

A barony must have at least 15 members. They are headed by a baron (or baroness). They are considered an estate minor, and have a seat on the local estates.

Counties

A county must have at least 30 members. They are headed by a count (or countess). They are considered an estate minor, and have a seat on the local estates.

Marches

A march must have at least 50 members. They are headed by a marquis (or marchioness). They are considered an estate major, and have a seat on the Imperial Estates, as well as the local estates.
