Map showing the Heartlands region of Cyrodiil

The Heartlands are a lowland area in Cyrodiil consisting of the central areas of the province. It forms a border with the regions Great Forest on the north and west, Nibenay Basin on the east, and Nibenay Valley on the south. The Red Ring Road forms the border on most sides, but its eastern border stretches roughly halfway to Cheydinhal, and its southern border extends down the Niben River to the end of Niben Bay. The Blue Road enters the region from the east, and the Yellow Road from the southeast.

The region is dominated by Lake Rumare and City Isle, on which stands the Imperial City.

Most of the vegetation of the region is found close to water, where Sacred Lotus, Water Hyacinth, and Nirnroot predominate. Fly Amanita, Lavender, and Morning Glory plants are also found throughout the region.
