This would be maybe called in English the Bannate (or even Palatinate) of Laita. Laita is betetr known otherwise as the river that borders between (simply said) Austrian and Hungarian crown lands, Cilaitania and Translaitania.
BTW, what's the thing captioned "A Lajtabansagi Csendorseg jelzese" - it's a kind of a police insignia. Does the writing on it suggest that the German name of Lajtabansag was already Burgenland?
