A region in Turf is the main geographical subdivision of a country. A region often corresponds to the Counties or similar in the countries where Turf is officially available. In countries where Turf is not yet available, the whole country is normally considered a single region.

Toplist and the Region medal
A turfer belongs to the region in which he/she has done the most takeovers in the current round. The turfer that accumulates most points in a region in a round receives the Region medal. This applies to all regions where there is at least five turfers active during the current round and also belongs to the region when the round ends.
