We’ve all wished at some point that “Game of Thrones” was more than just a fictional world. And every Sunday, no matter how many times you have to remind yourself it’s not real, you know exactly which house you’d pledge your allegiance to.

But if you’re from Austin and you’re not ready to be ruled by House Lannister, you may need to reconsider — at least, according to a study done by FindTheHome.

The real estate database used its data to see where the “GoT” characters would live if Westeros was the United States. They separated the country into seven groups: House Greyjoy, House Lannister, House Baratheon, House Targaryen, House Tyrell, House Stark and Night’s Watch.

It then created demographic, geographic and industry data for each group based off their characteristics on the show. FindTheHome then matched that data with that of regions in the U.S.

The site found that Austin, or Travis County, falls most strongly under House Lannister. But much of Texas would be ruled by House Baratheon and sprinkled with House Taragaryen.

Folks over at Thrillist created their own list of which characters would best fit each state in the U.S. It may not come as a surprise that they chose a Lannister for our great state — but at least she’s tough. Cersei would be Thrillist’s choice, complete with this little blurb:

Aesthetically pleasing debutante, comes from a ton of money. Can be hateful, and you don’t want to mess with her, but also pretty great if you’re on her side. Has no problem going it alone.
