Satrap was the title of an official of the Cetagandan Empire who ruled a planet as a governor, and was appointed to serve as leader of that planet for five years by his Emperor. Satraps were always men from the haut class. Every Satrap has his own space assets and supervises military forces stationed in his star system.

There were eight planetary satraps ruling the eight planets that compose the core Empire, including Eta Ceta, which was the Empire's capital.

During the First Cetagandan War, Barrayar was called the Ninth Satrapy; there may have been a haut satrap ruler over Barrayar with the aid of ghem officers and possibly traitorous Vor.
