Ask Dallas: Vampire Kingdom of Louisiana : how are the sheriff areas divided up?

Yet another great question from a reader....
There is actually a wonderful scene in Bk 8 where Sookie on the floor in her pajamas gets out her old Louisiana state map and a pencil (so she can later erase the lines ) and draws out what she thinks are the vampire sheriff area boundaries ...

This is the scene :

In honor of the chilly night I pulled on my fleecy pajama bottoms, white with pink sheep, and a white Tshirt. I unearthed my map of Louisiana and found a pencil. I sketched in the areas I knew. I was piecing my knowledge together from bits of conversations that had taken place in my presence. Eric had Area Five. The queen had had Area One, which was New Orleans and vicinity. That mad e sense. But in between, there was a jumble. The finally deceased Gervaise had had the area including Baton Rouge, and that was where the queen had been living since Katrina damaged her New Orleans properties so heavily. So that should have been Area Two, due to its prominence. But it was called Area Four. Very lightly, I traced a line that I could erase, and would, after I'd looked at it for a bit.


This is my idea of how it might look

Eewww! 4 Sheriffs and 1 King/Queen only in Louisiana! How many vamps do they have to govern? How come they haven't run out of humans yet?

What was CH thinking in developing THIS vamp heirarchy? Wait a minute, did she place a new sheriff at every town Snookie had to visit, LMAO. I sincerely hope we don't have hordes of Sheriffs in TB.

And then Area 6 is Dallas. Does that fall under Sophie-Anne's jurisdiction, too? OR is that TX, Area 6?

This isn't so great is it...too perfectly adheres to human boundaries, why would the vampires care about state lines like that?
Hopefully Dallas is indeed Louisiana's area 6.
