Eesdeheito (Crandish for the "Eastern Heath") is a condominium of Hurmu and Lac Glacei that was established in 1693 AN. Historically, Eesdeheito, with much larger territory than present-day Eesdeheito, was a territory and independent kingdom located in northeastern Apollonia. It was primarily held as a vassal state of Stormark for most of its existence, but was also associated with Cranda and Hurmu. To a lesser extent it was also related to Lac Glacei through the joint condominium at Seivannavik. The people of Eesdeheito are mostly related to the ethnic Crandish of Heathersland, the Hurmu people of Lake District (as evidenced by Norse place names such as Fiskbat, Klifvatr, Ulfrvik etc), and, a minority, to Lontinian people. There is a large Lontinian Lamaist temple outside Seivannavik, called the Ninety-Nine Buddhas of Lémisamen, as a centre of the Lontinian people and religion in Eesdeheito.

Originally the area of Eesdeheito was settled by the Apollonian Tatars, but immigrants from Cranda and Slobovia slowly pushed these indigenous populations out. The greater majority of these migrants came from Heathersland to the west, who called it Eesdeheito, meaning 'eastern heath'. Eesdeheito first appeared as a semi-autonomous kingdom around 2123 ASC 1504 AN when mercenaries from Stormark supported a popular uprising against Crandish rule and founded Ulfrvik on the northern coast. From this stronghold the Storish-Eesdeheitan warriors spread rapidly and conquered the regions of Balduvien, Jutien, Leilond and Lontinye. While most of these populations were assimilated, the Lontiniens migrated south along the River Glacei to establish modern Lontinien. During this time the Eesdeheitans established other strongholds, such as Klifvatr and Fiskbat, that further solidified their power. The kingdom would reign for several centuries, outlasting even the collapse of neighboring Arminy, until its collapse in 2428 ASC 1514 AN.

The Keshians, a Tataric tribe, conquered the area and established Grot Kesh around 2816 ASC (1527 AN). Grot Kesh itself would later be incorporated into Gralus, where it would remain for several more centuries. It was not until the Gralan empire collapsed in 5986 ASC (1631 AN) that Stormark would reclaim Eesdeheito. Except that this time the region was not granted any local autonomy and was instead incorporated directly as directly subservient to the Storish crown. It would remain a Storish possession until their collapse in 7614 ASC 1685 AN.

Following a prolonged period of barbarism, the nations of Hurmu and Lac Glacei agreed to re-establish their former condominium at Seivannavik in 7870 (1693 AN). Seivannavik's successful growth and development proved profitable enough that the two nations agreed to expand the condominium to include Eesdeheito and began military operations in the area in 7966 ASC (1696 AN) to push the boundaries north and begin the gradual reconquest of the region from the Green. Thanks to a combined Hurmu-Glaceian task force, Eesdeheito was retaken from the Green following a year-long engagement with hostile forces, bringing Operation Coeur to an end and officially forming the full condominium. As of 1697, Reyna Freer was elected to the position Mayor-Governor, serving in a dual position as Mayor of Seivannavik and Governor of Eesdeheito.


In accordance with the Treaty of friendship and non-aggression between Hurmu and the Grand Duchy of Lac Glacei, the government of Eesdeheito is vested in the Joint Council, consisting of 5 members from Lac Glacei and 5 members from Hurmu. Acting similarly to a corporate board, the Joint Council appoints the Mayor-Governor (Mayor of Seivannavik, Governor of Eesdeheito). Reyna Freer holds this position. She answers to the Joint Council but is not a member of it, though she attends meetings.
