Is something like this even possible? It feels kind of ridiculous that peasants can just declare themselves to be a part of another realm without even talking to that realm.

Well, the option does not exist, if that's what you're asking.

I've always considered it the minor nobility of the region, rather than the peasants themselves, who perform such things. After all, who cares what peasants think?

I think it's important to consider just what it means to "control" a region.

If it just meant that the realm's leadership claimed ownership of the region, any realm could "control" a whole continent.

When you're running a takeover—converting a region from another realm's control to yours—you are killing peasants and minor nobles who swear allegiance to the existing owner, and replacing the loyal officials with locals who will support you, instead.

Thus, it seems pretty clear that "control" of a region means "the peasants and minor nobility of the region say they belong to you."

So no, you can't block them from joining you. You are, however, more than welcome to meet the ruler of the other realm in the region and hand the region back to them.

Eh the problem with this is how it damages your stats across the realm when you do this. Maybe regions that have joined for less than a week shouldn't do that? I mean Tamilak switches hands three times in 3 turns. I am not sure you want regions switching realms that often.

Not so long back Greatbridge changed allegiance twice in one turn.
