Miktar know historically as Ostland (Luthorian: East Land; Lorman: Dēinamārki) is a province of Dorvik. Miktar is home to the largest Lorman population in Dorvik, it was home to some of the largest settlements of the Kerisian raiders outside of Vilnau in Kordusia. Miktar is home to several prestigious families from the nobility of the Kingdom of Dorvik and the Dundorfian Reich, including the zu Völksau and the von Desidier families, two families that remain incredibly prominent in Dorvish politics today. The Province of Miktar is made up of the former territories of the Grand Duchy of Miktar (northern Miktar), the Grand Duchy of Lievenia (central and parts of southern Miktar), the Duchy of Frostenwald (western Miktar) and the Kingdom of Kruthia (southern Miktar and part of Uwakah) as well as Schloss Desidier located in Osterschau. Miktar is located to the east of Largonia and south of Kordusia.
Miktar's geography is divided between the Frostenwald forest located on the eastern side of the Black Mountain Chain and encompasses a significant portion of the mountain side and northern Miktar. Miktar's southern portion has significant clearance and has been agriculturally based for decades. The Black Mountain Chain runs through the central portion of Largonia, dividing the two provinces with few exceptions.
Miktar's northern area is home to a large portion of Dorvish's industrial base, considered a close second behind Kordusia and close to Largonia, Miktar is a balance between the agricultural old world and the industrial new world. Miktar is home to car maker Bredemegen Motor Works (Dundorfian: Bredemegenische Motoren Werke AG) and Ebner AG calls Miktar it'se home. Miktar retains a sizable portion of the logging industry in Dorvik, however the title goes to Largonia.

Demographics and cultureEdit
Miktar despite being a close third behind Largonia and Kordusia as one of the largest industrial bases in Dorvik, Miktar is home to the largest farms and agricultural businesses in Dorvik and home to a vast majority of the fertile farmland in Dorvik. The Dorvish Agrarian League (Dundorfian: Dorvisch Landbund) is a major driving force in Miktar and has a heavy impact on the economy, they are responsible for management of agricultural land in Miktar out of pure influence and power, a vast majority of members of the Dorvish Agrarian League are wealthy Junkers who own large farms.
Alongside a major agricultural base is the several dozen heavy industries that call Miktar home, namely Bremegeden Motor Works (known commonly as BMW) and Ebner AG. The State Commercial Bank has a variety of interest in the region due to the bank having a vast majority of its loans in Miktar due to the presence of a majority of Dorvik's poorer citizens living in Miktar.
