Barony of Politarchopolis
The Barony of Politarchopolis is an SCA group which expands across Australia's Capital Territory, encompassing the College of St Aldhelm. It is part of the Kingdom of Lochac. The group make reference to their mundane location in both their name and their heraldry. The device contains a gryphon in referece to Walter Burley Griffin who designed the city, and a red pale, referring to red tape.
Despite being one of the largest groups in Lochac, Politarchopolis resisted becoming a Barony for many years. Some members had hoped that the BoD would allow the group to become a city state, rather than a Barony.
