Official Groups

Kingdoms

The Kingdom is the largest groups within the SCA. To become a Kingdom a group must have a history of high level activity, at least 400 subscribing members and sufficient representative from all three peerages. It is ruled by a King and a Queen

Principalities

A Principality is a subgroup of a Kingdom. It must have at least 100 subscribing members. It is ruled by a Prince and Princess, and is subject to Kingdom law. A group which wishes to become a Principality but does not yet fit one or more of the criteria, may become a Crown Principality.

Baronies

A Barony is a group with at least 25 subscribing members. It is ruled by a Baron and a Baroness, and is subject to a Kingdom, as well as to a Principality if it lies within one.

Provinces

A Province is a group with at least 25 subscribing members. It is subject to a Kingdom, as well as to a Principality if it lies within one. It has no royal representative in power, unlike a Barony.

Cantons

A Canton is the subgroup of a Barony with at least five subscribing members.

Riding

A Riding is the subgroup of a Province with at least five subscribing members.

Shires

A Shire is a group with at least five subscribing members which reports directly to a Kingdom or Principality rather than a Barony.

Colleges

A college is a group based around an educational institution, usually a University. It must have at least five subscribing members.

Ports and Strongholds

A Stronghold is a group based around a military base. If it is a naval base or a specific ship, then the term port is preferred. It must have at least five subscribing members.

Regions

An administrative unit within a Kingdom or Principality. It has no definition within the SCA Corpora and is purely established in order to enable officers to establish deputies.
