(WIP. Where does your nation's name come from? Most RL national names come from a small variety of choice. Some examples: land of a tribe (ex.France, Persia, Mongolia, Russia), characteristic geography (ex. Netherlands, India, Morocco), an old ruler or religious figure (ex. Philippines, San Marino, Europa, Saudi Arabia), the Latin description of a place (ex. Australia, Argentina, Liberia). How is the name pronounced? How is it translated into other languages?)
Throughout the centuries the various tribes of the deserts of Bahiristan were plagued by never ending wars. Under the banner of the tribe of Raheem and the ideas of Taniynism. The tribes were united into what is now Bahiristan. Commerce and foreign relations were opened up, and Bahiristan was prospering in the time of late-antiquity. When all of a sudden the nation was attacked by a powerful foreign power. Luckily, the combined force of all the united tribes drove out this unknown power. In foreboding that another power will descend destruction upon them, the nation unanimously decided to enter a period of isolationism. Under isolation, Bahiristan thrived; creating unique cultures and traditions within its lowly walls of stone, and as well as the watchful eye of their one true god. In the mid 19th century, Bahiristan was coerced into opening up its gates once-more by another foreign power. Bahiristan entered an era of rapid modernization, technologically at least. Modern-day, Bahiristan is more powerful than ever before, and is now hungry for more.

Most of Bahiristan is an inhospitable desert known as the Altiniyn Alkuthban Desert, also known as the Dunes of the Dragons; where only the strongest of creatures survive, and a voyage through it is described as a thousand hells. Most of Bahiristan's population resides along the arid, steppe coast of the nation, where multiple major cities are sprinkled. The capital of Bahiristan -- Azama -- is situated where the Altada River empties out into the sea. Along the northern borders of Bahristan are the Alrajul Al'akhir Mountains.
(WIP. Landscape. Climate. Where exactly is your nation compared to others on the global map? Describe the landscape, plants and animals. Which mountains and rivers are important to include? Describe are the climate and seasons? How does geography determine where people live? Are there areas separated from one another? How about cities? This will greatly help you with the next part of history.)

Who deals out your justice? Which government services exist? What is the name of your police? How are the armed forces organised? Foreign affairs, alliances, membership of international organisations.)

(WIP. Bahiristan is mostly like Saudi Arabia where the nation is ruled by the King, or in this case Sultan, and his vast amount of family. The Sultan, who is currently Raheem Bin Hafeez, is believed to be the living embodiment of Bahiristan's God, an almighty dragon from the heavens who is the leader of the religion known as Taniynism. The Bahiristani people are ranked in a caste system, with the royal family being at the top. Also like Saudi Arabia, Bahiristan's biggest export is oil. Bahiristan would be aligned with whatever nation is best for its businesses, and economic growth. Culture: Pagan Arabs.)
