The region is known to have been inhabited by primitive hunter-gatherer cultures as early as 200 000BCE. Evidence point to a more humid climate allowing habitation and hunting in the then green Great Helion Desert. The time period shows evidence of several waves of habitation, the last of which roughly 20 000BCE. The first sign of widespread civilization in the area is the Jeweled pot culture roughly 3300BCE
Part of the Athya-Gharic Empire stretching most of western Tarephia and believed to have been the site of the empiric capital of Athya roughly 2500 - 1000 BCE. The reason for the collapse of the empire is to this day unknown, the leading theory is drought and redesertification.
Post Athya-Garic Empire
Also known as the dark ages (1000 BCE to 200 CE) is a period of little to no written record in the region. The wake of the empire leaves several small tribes and kingdoms to fight for control for over a milennia. Most of the princes who hold local power in areas of modern day Gharbiya can trace their origin to this time.
Trade across the desert enables trade with the east with Badauan caravans. Riches of diamond and copper are exported eastward in exhange for gold and other exotic materials. The Dunhei warrior Empire is born from conquest of the nearby tribes and kingdoms establishing itself as a major power in the region ca. 500CE. The empire expands through its golden age around 700-900CE as Islam is introduced from the east with Badauan caravans from Aden, at first mixing with local faiths before quickly becoming the dominant religion around 1000CE. The empire recedes back to the northwest as the borders break from both south and north. Eventually splitting into East and West (Shaqriya and Gharbiya) with the uninhabited desert holding the sides apart.
The first attempts of colonialisation are made by the Franquese in the late 15th century but ultimately fail due to the hostility of the natives toward the foreigners. Te first successful colonies are made by the Demirhans as they establish Demirhanı Shaqriya upon the remnants of the eastern Dunhei empire and Demirhanı Gharbiya upon the western, these colonies eventually mergied into Demirhanı Gharbiya 1746. The local princes are in many cases bribed into subordination with the notable exeption of the Almurtafaeat clans that resist colonialization all the way into the late 19th century. Independence movements were common throughout the entire duration of the colony, primarily in the rural northwestern region leading to these regions seeing less investment from the Demirhanı heartland. In 1916 the Colony was made an official Demirhanı Bölge as opposed to the previous collection of Eyalets and brought into the Demirhanı federation. Furher efforts were made to bring the Bölge of Gharbiya closer to the heartland upon the discovery of oil in the 1940s. Turquese is gradually introduced as a language of the elite thoughout the colonial era. Although Mazanic was still taught alongside it as a more common language of the people.
In 1964 the socialist revolt in Demirhanlı Devleti lead to 70% of the Gharbic garrison being recalled to the heartland, which in turn lead to the Gharbiyan war of independence which lasted from the 17th of march and the explosion of Bakhtu to the 21st of october and the Amirlat beheadings. International armies fought for the independence of Gharbiya in the form of [Regiment from aden] and [regiment from elsewhere].
Post colonial era
Following the war of independence, a new mansa was put into power in the form of Mansa Saqib, under whom the nation spent decades repairing infrastructure and building international trade, opening up its vast wealth of oil to trade outside Tarephia in 1972. The peace would not last however as Gharbiya declared war on [its southern neighbor] in 1978, starting [a war] which lasted for 9 months, resulting in minor territorial gains for Gharbiya. In 1981 another was was declared against [its eastern neighbor] once more resulting in minor territorial gains for Gharbiya and giving the nation the borders seen today. The following decades of peace lead to massive infrastructure projects under the rule of Mansa Aayliyah, such as the ASHEA high speed railway, several of the large freeways in the Dunhei, Salghum and Almadam eyalets as well as several pipelines for oil in the helion desert. Her successor Mansa Alrahnim built the foundations of a parliament on models of [democratic country], changing the national laws to no longer allow either Mansa or princes positions of power. He stood down from the post of Mansa in 2010, officially making Gharbiya a democracy, one of few nations to do so without conflict. This lasted for 5 years until the civil war of 2015 where the monarchists fought the democrats, ending with a Monarchist victory in December of the same year where a Mansa was once more crowned in the form of Mansa Rukhia as her father died during the war in an expected assasination.
The western part of the Gharbiya is dominated by mountainous terrain whereas the east is mostly flat. The entire nation is very Arid with the only rivers being found in the highlands.
Gharbiya is divided into 7 eyalets, all of which holds seats in the parliament

The government of Gharbiya is divided into two sources of power, the monarchy and the parliament. The former of the two is ruled by the Mansa who has more or less direct access to the nation's wealth and distributes this to the princes they have underneath them. These regional princes control areas of land, and are expected to fund infrastructure, schools and hospitals in the area. If their goals align with those of the Mansa, they can be given more funds for their projects and are thus forced to follow the leadership of the Mansa. Although, if too few of the princes agree with the Mansa, a prince can be voted into the position of Mansa by populair vote of the princes. The parliament works in many ways like a prince on national level. The Mansa pays the parliament to in similair way to the princes care for infrastructure, foreign relations and so on. The difference being that the people are able to vote for representatives in parliament from the municipal level in elections held once every 5 years. The Mansa cannot directly remove a member of parliament. The most popular member of parliament becomes prime minister, who's job it is to coordinate the governmental policies. The prime minister may change these at any time and may mark 10 policies which the Mansa cannot remove, further policies may be removed by the Mansa at will. In total there are 231 members of parliament, with each eyalet holding a certain amount of seats which are filled with the voted politicians.
The vast majority (81%) of the Gharbic economy is based on its oil which it exports en masse by tankers. The oil industry is monopolised by the شركة بترول الغربية الملكية (SBAA) or Royal Gharbiyan petrolium cooperation which is directly owned by the Mansa and a handful of princes.
Media and communications
Science and technology
Gharbiya has a total of 9 railroads connecting most of the nation together. Most of these can be found in the urban southwest with the perhaps most notable railway being the ASHEA high speed railway connecting Yanim, Bakhtu, Sufhina and Almadam with a highest speed over 300km/h built in 2005. Other railways include the Sufhina-Dikhar mountain railway, the west coastal railway, the great transhelion railway and the Western Helion railway.
The nation has three international airports, 8 regional airports and numerous minor airfields [National royal airways] [The mansa's own airways]
Gharbiya has a network of national M-roads (Maliki roads) or royal roads serving as the base roadnetwork in the entire nation. In addition to this there are also regional roads with the prefixes K,A,H,R and KA
The largest port is the port of Bakhtu which moves TBD tonnes of cargo annualy
Religion is an important part of Gharbiyan culture and as a prerequisite for citizenship in the nation, one must be either muslim or Tamneidh. The majority religion of Gharbiya is islam, further divided into two branches of islam. The first being Gharbian matriarchal islam which distinguishes itself by being influenced by pre-muslim faiths and cultures of the region. The most striking differences being that this branch of islam is mostly matriarchal, where succession follows the eldest female heir and women are seen as the 'leaders' of the family. Princes following this branch of islam are thus almost always female (but are still reffered to as 'prince'). Another distinguishing feature of this branch of islam is the adaptation of traditional muslim clothing. Both men and women commonly make an effort to show as much skin around their necks and wrists as possible, adorning them with necklaces and chains to signal their individual wealth.
The other branch of Islam is the orthodox eastern Sufi that was brought in by the Demirhanı during the colonial era. Many converted to this branch of islam to be taken more seriously in the Demirhanı heartland as well as gain more local power under the colonial rule. Today the split is rougly even with a slight majority of the local branch which has been making a return since the end of the colonial era.
Other than islam, there's a local religion commonly referred to as Tamneidh, almost entirely limited to the Almurtafaeat region of the nation.
