tröiks [tɾøjks] n. "county seat" (whatever the administrative level below "province" will be called (as yet to be determined: will it be a county? a 縣/县? a 郡?, "tröiks" refers to the city/town/place where most of that level of stuff is carried out, so "county seat", the clunky Chinese 郡政府所在地, or slightly better Japanese 郡庁所在地; I also found Chinese 县官 (county magistrate's) and 县城 (county city), which are pithier by far.) (Oh, and being Géarthtörs, its inhabitants would divvy the seven provinces up and force a metaphorical size 9 foot into a size 7 shoe to make the counties work out, whether in reality or folklore; it's just a thing they do. [;)] )

We'll just have to see how it plays out. Géarthtörs is a very vague place, hidden in the mists of geography and history (which probably helped in their not getting engulfed by/absorbed into all those neighboring empires), simply because conlanging, for me, captivates more than conworlding. There are some monetary terms, some administrative terms, some names of place(s), and certainly some royalty titles/kinship terms, but, meh, there's no rush. (And the learning curve on designing currency, postage, passports, and railroad and subway maps quite simply boggles my feeble mind).
