Holds are the 666 administrative divisions of Skyrim.
Each of the 666 Holds is governed by a Demon who resides in Hell. The Demons are largely independent, but swear fealty to Satan.
Each Hold also employs their own imps.
Winterhold, Eastmarch, The Rift and The Pale are known collectively as the "Old Holds" and have remained more isolated - not only from a geographic standpoint, but a political one as well given that they are all initially aligned with the Stormcloaks during the civil war .
