A Zone is a general term referring to an individual area of the persistent world's geography.

In terms of Server topography, a zone is supported by a server or a server cluster working in unison, allowing characters to interact with each other within the zone.

Entering and leaving a zone will also instruct the Client to load and unload the graphical resources needed to display that area.

Zones in PlanetSide are referred to as Planets, Continents, and Caverns.
