Regions and Territory
The Seven Kingdoms are divided into nine administrative regions, seven of which were former independent kingdoms before the Targaryen Conquest and two that were created after. The Crownlands, which Aegon took for his own house and The Riverlands, which gained independence after the defeat of Harren the Black, during the conquest.
The nation's territory includes all but the northernmost tip of the continent, where the Wall defines its northern border. The nation also controls the many islands off the coast of Westeros, such as Tarth and the Iron Islands. It is occasionally drawn into conflicts over the Stepstones off its southeastern coast, but it has rarely controlled a significant portion of them.

Today they are mostly identified through their place of residence, where each kingdom retains its unique flavor. The influence of the Andals is strongest in the south, while the North still follows many customs of the First Men. Dorne is heavily influenced by the mass immigration of the Rhoynar. Small groups, such as the Ironmen and the mountain clans, maintain very different cultures from the rest of the nation.
