A crown colony is a type of colonial administration of any subdivisions in the Imaginary Lands of Nicholas.
Crown colonies were ruled by a governor appointed by the King. Residents in the colony are entitled to become full citizens of its ruling country.
There were three types of Crown colony, with differing degrees of autonomy. Crown colonies with representative councils contains one or two legislative chambers, consisting of Crown appointed and some locally elected members. Those colonies with nominated councils are staffed entirely by Crown appointed members, with some appointed representation from the local population, such as Port Run. The third category of Crown colony, smallest in number, had the least autonomy and were ruled directly by the Governor.
