B. Imperial Lands
a. All counties that are not currently assigned to a House shall be known as Imperial Lands.
a. Imperial Lands are laid open to any Shirerithian interests that wish to explore, exploit, develop, or colonize them. Citizens of Shireroth need not seek Imperial permission before attempting to develop Imperial Lands.
b. The Kaiser or Landsraad may choose to evict a person, corporation, or House from an Imperial Land if they demonstrate a willful disregard for its populace or culture. Such a person's work will be deemed "non-canon" and can be explained away by future colonizers in any way they wish. That person will be banned from any further development work in that area, or, depending on the scale of the offense, in Imperial Lands.
a. The Kaiser or Landsraad may choose to grant the title of Count to those who have done exceptional work developing an Imperial Land. The Count of a land, and the House to which zie belongs will have control over a land, its armies, its resources, and its development so long as zie holds the title over said Imperial Lands.
b. The Kaiser or Landsraad may choose to revoke Countships at their pleasure.
c. Any Imperial Land that is neither assigned to a House nor under active development shall be directly administered by the Kaiser.
