Yonderre, officially styled as the Most Serene Grand Duchy Yonderre (Burgoignesc: Sérénissime Grand-Duché Yonderre, Gothic: Serenistische Großherzogtum Yonderre), is a nation in Levantia. Its capital is Collinebourg, which is also its most populous city. Yonderre consists of nine Counties that are divided into 72 Baronies, each of which further subdivides into munincipalities. The Kestrel Isles of the Vandarch Archipelago form a seperate Grand Barony directly under the Grand Duke of Yonderre. Yonderre neighbours Covinia across the Vandarch lake to the north, Hollona and Diorisia to the east, Anglei to the southeast, Søbjerg to the southwest and Hendalarsk to the west via the Kestrel Isles. Yonderre is a landlocked country but has access to the Kilikas Sea via the Aburvrigeen canal.
Yonderre emerged as an autonomous marcher realm in the mid-15th century following the conquest of East Gothica. Yonderre's legitimacy was solidified by the Treaty for the guarantee of Joanus' Land signed with the Holy Levantine Empire in 1494.
Yonderre is a member of the Levantine Union and the Talerzone and was a member of the Levantia and Odoneru Treaty Association from 1958 until its dissolution and replacement in 2038 by the Levantine Union Defense Council, of which Yonderre is a founding member.
Yonderre takes its name from the Treaty for the guarantee of Joanus' Land wherein the lands making up Yonderre are mentioned as Joanusterra, "Joanus' land" from Latin Terra, in reference to Joanus de Martigueux, the first Crusader Grand Count of Yonderre. The styling of the name was changed over time, with the more Burgoignesc-sounding Yoansterre appearing side-by-side with Joanusterra throughout the sixteenth century. The present spelling of the name is first documented in the early seventeenth century and is thought to have replaced the others almost entirely by time of the Yonderian Peasants' War in the 1640s.
Yonderre has sometimes historically been referred to as Yondaar in the East Gothic language after the Conquest of Joanusterre, although this name has amost entirely fallen out of use in favour of the official style.
