The Isles of Kanor are a pair of islands, known as Kanor Major and Kanor Minor (Tavari: Avkanor and Takanor; Rodokan: Suured Kanor and Väike Kanor), along the southwestern coast of Meagharia that are an unprovinced territory of Tavaris. The territory is administered by the Rodokan Native Tribal Administration as part of its sovereign reserve territory, with the exception of several Tavari military facilities under the jurisdiction of the Royal Tavari Armed Forces. Royal Naval Base Kanor Minor is the largest Royal Navy facility in the country. Agriculture is the primary sector of the economy, dominated in large part by citrus orchards and, since the RNTA legalized it in 2000, cannabis.

The islands were at the center of a controversy between Tavaris and Meagharia that reached a head in 2021 after the announcement of the Tavari nuclear program. The Meagharian government reached out to enter into talks, which were held under the auspices of the League of Novaris and hosted by Tretrid in the city of Suþrimaburg. Major negotiations were held on February 19th, 2021 - just a day after Tavari Prime Minister Žarís Nevran Alandar had taken office. The agreement reached, referred to as the Kanor Accords, saw both parties agree to routine LN inspection of military facilities, as well as a Tavari pledge not to hold nuclear weapons at RNB Kanor Minor. In addition, the Accords establish an LN tribunal to prosecute Tavari citizens arrested in Meagharian waters for illegal whaling. The tribunal, which was reported to be the most complicated of the topics discussed at the talks, will feature three judges (one each from Tavaris, Meagharia, and the LN) enforce Meagharian law. Those convicted would be held in a separate facility from the rest of the Meagharian penal system.
