Mazan(mɑ' zɑːn Mah-ZAHN; Mazanic: مظأن Mōzan), officially the Sultanate of Mazan (Mazanic: سلطنة مظان Sultanat Mōzan [sultanat mozan]) is a country in the south of East Uletha. It borders Castellán to the north and The Mazanic Sea to the east. As a consitutional elective monarchy, Mazan exercises it authority over 25 states.

The area of modern-day Mazan formerly consisted of the Ezrat Empire and Mazanic and Zinakhtiyyin Tribes. A large portion of Mazan (and parts of Castellán) was a part of Ezrat Empire for more than a millenium, becoming a major power in West Uletha and Tarephia during the early modern period. The Ezrat Caliphate started in the 6th century and is still present till today. After its decline in the 16th century, different parts of modern-day Mazan were governed in different strategies and ways.

The Sultanate of Mazan was founded in 1850 by Ibn Maz. He unified the remaining lands of old Ezrat after the great decline of the Caliphate.

Etymology

Mazan name is derived from ma(ماء) the word for water and samin(سامان), which is land. This is because of the importance of the holy water that was found in Maad in the 7th century. Soon it would lead the land being caled maza. Although for a period it was known as Ezrat which is just from the word for this land: ard(أَرْض). Following the collapse in the 14th century after its millennial existence, the name was then replace by the name that would soon become Mazan.
