Antharia (/aŋ'θæɹi.ə/ an-THA-ree-ə; Romanish: Antaria [an'θari.a]; Eganian: Antariê; Iviran: אנתריה; Turquese: Antarya; Surian
or Maldavian: Антария), officially Federal Republic of Antharia (Romanish: Republica Federală Antharia) is a federal semi-presidential republic in central-southern Uletha, on the Iviran Sea. It includes 6 constituent provinces. Antharia covers an area of 59,102.75 square kilometres (22,819.70 sq mi). It is bordered by Niscavo, Qennes and UL117 to the west, UL118 and the Surian republics West Kartlegia and Chara to the north, as well as Iviron and Montemassena to the east. To the south, the two Antharian enclaves Turtukay and Adakalè have a physical borders with Demirhanlı Devleti.
Its capital and largest city is Bărrădin.
The human remains found in Peștera Văduvelor ("Cave of Widows") dates from circa 120,000 years ago, being one of the oldest founds of Homo Sapiens in Uletha.
Until 500 BC, the Vallaquian plain was populated by the indigenous Moorsh, ancestors of the Iviran culture. Other parts of today’s Antharia were mostly inhabited by early southern Slevic tribes.
Hellanesian Immigration and Antharian Kingdom
The name "Antharia" dates already from 500 BC, when it defined a region settled by multiple Hellanesian migrant flows between 500 BC and 500 AD, situated in the Kiran estuary region and rapidly spreading along both the northern and the southern coast of today’s Gulf of Antharia. Among the first significant Antharian settlements were Alexandraia (Iscandaria), Basilopal (Victoria) and Peia (Montemassena).
In the In the early 4th century, Antharia gained independence from Hellanesia and became an independent hub of the Hellanesian trading network on the southern Ulethan coast. The first capital of the Antharian Kingdom was Хistri (pronounced ‘’shistri’’, now Istria).
The Antharian Kingdom was mostly populated by Hellanesians, but also by Romano-Slevics, Moorsh and Turquese. The Hellanesian walled cities (metropals) were only inhabited by Hellanesians until the late 3rd century AD, after which the Moorsh were permitted to populate them too. Romano-Slevics and Turquese people had in the ancient Antharian hierarchy the lowest estate, being not able to enter the metropalin until the late 16th century. Thus they built their own walled cities like Balcik, Nejbar, Hurezi (Hörezöy) and Bandabulya.
The ancient Antharian culture is specifically known for the ‘’Temples of Knowledge’’ (gnostheionin, laugian) which used to dominate the Antharian metropalin being situated either on a hill (akropal) or on an artificial hill (ziggurat) in the center of the walled city, always having a view on the open sea. The temples comprised and developed each a map of the known world, as well as various other scientific discoveries, collected and kept in cyclopedic manner. A room in the temple was consecrated to the ‘’Demiurge God’’, which was only accessible to the Grand Master Cartographer. The rest of the temple was also hidden from the general public, only cartographers, alchemists, as well as the heads of state and army were able to enter it on special occasions.
Over the centuries, the Hellanesian language in Antharia developed under Garlian, Castellanese, Surian, Moorsh and Turquese influences to what is today known as Antharian Eganian, an Eganian dialect that has been the official state language of the Antharian Kingdom until its complete suppression in 1797.
The north of today’s Antharia was inhabited prior to the 7th century AD by South Slevic tribes, Moorsh and Kartlegians. In the 4th century, Silot became the hub of the Kartlegian culture. First permanent Moorsh settlements appeared already in the 3nd century, including Yabboq (Tighina), Shderot and Moab (Moabit).
In the late 7th century, the region of today’s northern Antharia and Iviron became a principality of the Slavan Sur, known by the names ‘’Ivira’’ or ‘’Dukas-Toridava’’, unifying the two former principalities around the Sur’ settlements Toridava (Sens) and Dukas (Dúkaș). The knyazes (rulers) of Ivira changed residences quite often between these two cities before settling in Vorodino (Bărădin) in the early 10th century.
Iviran Coast around 1000 AD
In 930 AD, Ivira was occupied by Garlians seeking to establish own trading hubs near Hellanesian trade routes. Due to Antharia occupying most of the coast in the area already, Garlians were only able to gain control over a small strip of coast, where they found today’s capital of Iviron, Yaffa.
