Within Westarctica a Count (feminine Countess) is a peerage title below that of Marquis and above that of Viscount. Counts are assigned territorial land grants called counties. Such titles and land grants may be given or rescinded only by the Grand Duke.

Like a Marquis or a Baron, Counts are to be addressed as "Your Lordship/Ladyship" and "His/Their Lordship" or "Her/Their Ladyship" (in the third person) in written correspondence and formal address.
