At the start of Code Geass Japan has just been conquered by Britannia and renamed Area 11. After Prince Clovis's death we are introduced to Princess Cornelia, learning that her Knights had just established another Area for the Empire (I do not remember the number) before leaving to take Clovis's place in Area 11.

I am wondering what each of the Areas are (ie. Area 11 is Japan), if they were conquered in the order they are numbered and if they were all also conquered while Charles Zi Britannia was Emperor.

  • NOTE: the last bit about Charles I ask because Bartley says later on that he believes the reason for most of the Wars were to secure Geass related Ruins like the ones found at Kamine Island and am curious which Areas Charles have conquered which possibly have Geass Ruins

1 Answer 1


An Area is a nation or group of nations that has been conquered by Britannia and made into a colony. Each Area is designated with a number, and its people are referred to by that number.


Areas are numbered in order of conquest, though only a handful are mentioned by name

  1. United States - Disputed (considering the timeline, the United States doesn't exist in this world) In addition, Britannians make several mentions to the "Homeland" suggesting that there's a part of their empire that isn't an Area. Since the original colonies that Britannian nobles fled to after losing Great Britain were in North America, it would make sense that at least part of the United States as well as possibly part of Canada, would be the "Homeland".
  2. Canada and Queen Elizabeth Islands
  3. Mexico
  4. Greenland
  5. Iceland
  6. South America
  7. Hawaii and Midway Atoll
  8. Falkland Islands
  9. New Zealand
  10. Indochina - Disputed (Indochina is shown as a territory of the Chinese Federation)
  11. Japan
  12. Philippines
  13. Cambodia - Disputed (While Britannia seems to have connections with Cambodia, it was never called an Area) In addition, Cambodia is considered a part of Indochina.
  14. Papua New Guinea
  15. Southern Pacific Islands
  16. Korean Peninsula - Disputed (Shown as a territory of the Chinese Federation)
  17. Indonesia - Disputed (shown as a territory of the Chinese Federation, especially taking part of the uprising)
  18. Middle Eastern Federation
  19. Unknown
  20. Unknown
  21. Unknown
  22. Unknown
  23. Unknown
  24. Spain


  • Do you know which Area was the first to be conquered while Charles was on the throne given that they are numbered in order by conquest?

  • @Memor-X I watched the anime again and their is no mention about your question. This is only my speculation but Charles was childhood friends with VV and their priority mission was to find the thought elevators around the world prntscr.com/8af99s. So first they found one in New York while they were young. In 1998 they overtook the Emperor of Britannia using Geass and started searching the elevators by conquering Canada.
