History

The dry lands of Nordestan were lived in since early times by pantanus tribes. About the 14th century AD, nordestanis came to the area from central Archanta.

For much of its history the area was simply called Sirenoa Ardispheric and was a least inhabbited region, except its northeastern borders. The last few 2 centuries several foreign peoples involved themselves with the area, in search for areas for pasture and minerals. After the Ardispherian Civil War between 1855-1858 the land that named Sirenoa Ardispheric separated from Ardisphere and from Saneusitania to form a new country called Nordestan.
