The Quatrines Islands (Catrinish: Sidras-eilynjen, Velskish: Paapuurit saaret, Veranish: Babordøyane) are an archipelago in the Hallanic Channel, located 20 kilometres north of the Cutho-Waldish coast of Cardia. An autonomous county within Kolmalamaa, itself a constituent land of the Republic of Velsken. The islands have a total area of about 176.3 square kilometres with a population of 147,281 inhabitants as of January 2019.

The first known reference to the archipelago was made by the Setentrian geographer Agathinus of Thyria in 235 BC, who named them Insulae Quatrinae after the four major islands he saw.
