Albalad Siriun, is a semi-presidential republic located in northern Tarephia, largely covered by the Serion Desert. It is bordered by TA023 to the east, TA026c and TA017 to the north, TA024 to the west, and TA021 and TA013 to the south.

The country has a history that dates back thousands of years, to the rise of one of the continent's earliest urban civilizations along the Palliatic River, which began around 3000 BCE. It later became the political and cultural center of the Serio-Mazanic Caliphate, and today the country is considered the heart of the traditional Serionic way of life.

Etymology

Haez, the modern capital of Albalad Siriun
Albalad is a Mazanic phrase that translates roughly as "the community." In common usage, it has also come to mean "the homeland." The country's modern name, established in the 17th century as Serionic peoples continued to push back against Castellanese attempts to colonize the Serionic Peninsula, thus literally translates as "the Serionic Homeland," or "the Serionic Community," emphasizing Albalad Siriun's role as a religious and cultural stronghold.

History

Early Civilization (3000- 1900 BCE)

Civilization in the Serion Desert first took root around 3000 BCE along the Palliatic River, where early farmers were able to cultivate crops. By 2000 BCE, that civilization stretched along the length of the river, from the Sea of Uthyra to present day Sogonia. During this same period, nomadic tribes in the Serion Desert formed their own early trading network, creating a parallel civilization. The nomads formed into separate “kingdoms” controlled by a series of warlord-kings, and eventually overtook the Palliatic River Civilization ac. 1900 BCE.

Rise of the Serion Kings (1900 BCE-600 CE)

Thus began the era known as the “Shifting Sands Period.” The Serion Kings divided up the region and, despite occasional periods of turbulence, maintained a relative stability across the desert for more than 1200 years. During the 700s BCE, the rise of the Pohenicians along the coastal areas sparked a breakdown, leading to Al-Aqsim, the “Partitioned Period.” Many areas formerly under control of the Serion Kings became Pohenician supplicant states, while the upper Palliatic and the surrounding desert (roughly corresponding with Albalad Siriun's contemporary borders) consolidated into a single kingdom, maintaining the traditional Serionic way of life.

Serio-Mazanic Caliphate (600-1450s CE)

The region first took to Christicism in the 4th century CE, then converted quickly to Imanish in the 7th century upon its arrival from across the Uthyra. That led to the rise of the Saltanat Mujyda, a powerful dynasty that established the Serio-Mazanic Caliphate. The Caliphate stretched across the desert, reuniting much of the territory formerly controlled by the Serionic Kings. The Caliphate, with Haez as its capital, would dominate the region until the arrival of the Castellanese colonists in the 1450s.

Modern Era (1450s CE-Present)

Colonization efforts across the region caused a period of great political strife, as the Caliphate broke apart into a mix of Castellanese territories and separate Imanish city-states. During this period, known as Ainfisal (Schism), Albalad Siriun took on its current shape, and once again became the primary center of the Serionic way of life as its leaders fought to stave off Castellanese incursions. Today the country remains one of the largest and most culturally stable in the Serionic region.

Climate

The Brocade Mountain range separates the country's fertile coast from the interior desert
The majority of eastern Albalad Siriun has a tropical savanna climate, Aw and As according to the Köppen classification. The Brocade mountain range seperates the fertile east from the dry and arid Serion desert in the west. The Brocade Mountain range is covered in tropical forests on its eastern slopes, and has tropical monsoon (Am) and tropical rainforest (Aw) climate. The land west of the Brocade range is arid and has very little rainfall, with semi-arid (BSh) and desert (BWh) climate zones.
