I was thinking of the situation where someone owns the entire New
Lands. He can protect it simply by putting a large military force in
the Swamp. But realistically, if he wants to collect head taxes
throughout the rest of the land, he needs to have men out there.

The game mechanisms don't exist for doing this. That's what this
discussion is all about. There isn't any way to keep someone out of
Chardia; there isn't any way to prevent someone from using a
marketplace; there isn't any way to tax the peasants in a location.
