Science-Fiction Adventure in the Far Future
The fourth level of noble rank (Soc E) is the count, a "local area" noble associated with two or three worlds within a subsector. Counts are referred to by their title, followed by their surname or the name of one of the worlds within their county. An individual accorded a county may receive a fief of land on a single world, generally not more than 10,000 square km.
