Arvon is the eighth country introduced in the Witch World series in Year of the Unicorn.

Government: The closest Arvon has to a central government are the Seven Lords (one of which is The High Lord Aidan1) and the Voices of the Heights (usually simply called "the Voices") who maintain the balance of power between the four Clans (Redmantle, Goldmantle, Bluemantle, & Silvermantle) of the Old Race and many other races and peoples of Arvon through prophecy and the Warders. House Lordship of the many Keeps is inherited through the mother's bloodline—the eldest son of the eldest daughter of the line becomes chieftain and his eldest sister's son becomes chieftain after him. House Lords of the Old Race give allegiance to one of the four Clan Overlords. The Wereriders are led by Hyron.

Geography: Arvon is surrounded by mountains which (along with its powerful wards) cuts it off from the surrounding areas. Within the bordering mountains, the main of Arvon are rolling plains good for farming and wild forested areas. Time might flow differently in Arvon than elsewhere since many inhabitants are well over a thousand years old.

Surrounding Areas: To the southeast are the Dales of High Hallack. To the southwest begins The Waste which extends to an unknown distance up the western border. To the east is the sea (over which lies Alizon and the northern lands of the Latts). Just off the coast are some tiny island nations. (see: Isle of Illusion & Rampion) To the north is mainly unknown, though The Warding of the Witch World mentions a Sulcar settlement and possibly settlements of the Latts as well.
