Guvnah Desmond Shang once described the "peers" of Caledon as falling into one or more of six broad categories:
- Anyone with a Duchy or equivalent--i.e. an openspace or void sim.
- Anyone with 1/4 sim worth of land (16,384 m2 minimum).
- Anyone with a foreign title they had been using prior to Caledon.
- The Knights of Caledon.
- A small group of "royals"; Vicereine Kamilah Hauptmann was mentioned by name, plus some old supportive friends he considers Princesas in their own right.
- "Anyone with sheer temerity who shows up and really plays the part!"
Peer is one of the ten roles recognized within the Independent State of Caledon group in-world. (So are Knight of Caledon, Princesa, and Vicereine among others.)
