The Lake District (Hurmu Norse: Sjooa omraaðe; Lakkvian: Järvede piirkond) is one of the realms held in right by the Order of the Holy Lakes (Hurmu). It borders New Alexandria to the west, east and south. Following the assassination of Regent Patrik Djupvik in 1729, the position of Regent is vacant and the Lake District is thereby under direct rule by the Senate of the Lakes until a new Regent is appointed.

Municipalities of the Lake District

Before the reunification of Hurmu with the Vesüha Accords in 1690, the district was divided between Craitland's Lakkvia territory, and the eastern part by, initially Stormark and, then, the Hurmu Trust Territory.

In 1696, the Lake District was upgraded from district to state, but chose to formally style itself as the State of the Lake District to emphasise its statehood (Lakkvian: Järvepiirkonna osariik; Hurmu Norse: Sjooa omraaðarike. Uniquely among the Hurmu states and districts, the Lake District used the flag and coat of arms of Hurmu as its own as well, until the Chancellor of the order of the Holy Lakes, in 1712, differentiated them thus: the Lake District's flag would be inverted from Hurmu's (like the oldest flag of Hurmu), and the coat of arms of the Lake District would feature six blue dots, but ordered differently from Hurmu's.

In 1720, the Lake District annexed the Southern District as the Southern Municipality. As a result of the enactment of the Charter for the Order of the Holy Lakes, the Lake District was reorganized into a realm held in right by the Order of the Holy Lakes. As such, its formal name is Order of the Holy Lakes in right of the Realm of the Lakes (Hurmu Norse: Orða helgo sjooa som allvalda yver Sjooa rikeno; Lakkvian: Pühade järvede ordu kui Järvede riigi kõikvõimas).


The government of the Lake District is ultimately responsible to the Senate, though, in practice, most of its internal affairs are delegated (devolved) to the Lake District's own institutions. It follows a parliamentary system, in which the Thing of the Lake District is the legislature. Any bill adopted by the Thing must meet the Regent's assent before enactment (a decision of granting or withholding assent may be appealed to the Senate in certain cases by a Senator, the cabinet of the Lake District, a resolution by the Thing, or by the signed appeal by at least two fifths of the members of the Thing).

In 1729 the new government extended the franchise to all citizens resident in the realm at least 21 years old, with certain limited disqualifying factors. For municipal elections, the age limit was set at 18. Previously, the right to participate in elections as electors or candidates is for all adult citizens resident in the Lake District who have (a) completed conscription in the Hurmu Fyrð with honours, (b) completed auxiliary service in the Hurmu Fyrð with honours, (c) completed civil conscription with honours, or (d) otherwise been approved for inclusion in the electorate. Most falling under category (d) are people who are over the age of 25, without impediments (impediments include, e.g., failure to pay taxes, default/bankruptcy, undergoing rehabilitation (due to Vanicism, rebellion, or criminal offences, involuntary commitment to hospital or other clinic)).
