General information
Since the return of the province of Īnōsy to Nhoor by Almorea after the latter's lease of the island ended, Nhoor has had fifteen provinces. The provincial governments enjoy some power over provincial and local affairs, although in general it is the national parliament and/or government that decide which powers are devolved and for how long. The people elect the provincial parliaments once every four years, usually shortly before the members of the provincial parliaments will elect the members of the national parliament, although this is not mandatory.

The executive power of the provinces is formed by the Provincial Councils, which consist of a First Councillor and a random number of Councillors. Like the national government, these institutions are self-regulating, which means that the incumbent members decide who joins and leaves the Council and who will be responsible for which portfolio. The parliament can however issue a binding advice on the appointment and removal of Council members if this is considered in the best interest of the province.

Chur
Chur is the southeasternmost province of Nhoor. It's name is generally believed to have been derived from Kira one of the five sisters of the Pact of the Five Sisters that caused the division of the First Kinaera Kingdom into five territories around the start of the Common Era. The original territory of Kira and later Chur extended much farther south though. Chur survived as an independent or semi-independent for a long time. In 1692-1693 an area corresponding to the modern province of Chur was annexed by the Dominion of Nhoor, which was founded some fifty years earlier. The capital of Chur is the city of the same name, famous for the five medieval castles that mark the city boundaries and which form an imperfect pentagram that attracts the occasional occultists, devil-worshippers, and metal fans.

Cōsō pw Camhɵrlanh
Cōsō pw Camhɵrlanh or Lower Caverlaw is a province in the central west of Nhoor. It is the northernmost part of the former Archduchy of Camhɵrlanh that merged into the Dominion of Nhoor in 1644. Its capital is Cinharda, which is also the second largest city of the country. Cōsō pw Camhɵrlanh used to be a rather unimportant part of the country, with unimpressive views and little wealth. The rise of Cinharda as an important seaport at the North Mesder Sea from the 19th century signified a large boost of the province's economy.
