I don't think the regional borders were ever supposed to make sense 
geographically.  They are just so all the kingdom officers have regionals over 
the same areas.  Otherwise, I might split up groups alphabetically for my 
deputies to administer and Burke might split up groups in vertical stripes, and 
Kief might break them up into horizontal stripes; and then no one would know 
which deputy kingdom officer was responsible for a given group.  It would 
change for each office.

None of the regions make sense geographically when you look at them on a 
map.  But, getting the groups in question to agree to be moved around could 
start a riot.  The final decision is the Crown's, but I don't think they would 
make changes without mass agreement and a good reason.

He will bring to life the great king of the Mongols.  
Before and after war reigns happily."
