Cynereth (/sin ā reTH/), officially the Concordance of Cynereth (Cyneric: Patheas Caistusaes Cynerethes) or alternatively known as the Anaryssian Realm is a theocratic monarchy in Northern Belisaria, with Laeleath its capital and Remirah its largest city. It borders the Boreios Sea to the north and east, Liothidia to the south and the nations of Ostmark and Ottonia to the west. Much of the country's geography is dominated by the vast Cauzen Mountain Range, which largely forms the natural border between the Concordance and its western neighbors. The country is considered the spiritual birthplace and main hub of the Anaryssian faith. The current ruler, referred to as the Aunura, is Selania III Selenn, in her seventh year on the throne.
Archaeological records indicate that humans first migrated into the area during the Chalcolithic, but organized pseudo-states would not form until the late-Bronze Age. Networks of game trails into the hills afforded hunter-gatherers a robust, resource-laden region to exploit; farming was slower to develop owing to the local geography and resulting variables in climate and weather. Small tribes and various city-states would compete amongst each other for natural resources until the 10th Century CE, when the chieftainess Tamsen of Hannaria began uniting the area's population during the Tamsenic Conquest beginning in 920 CE. Her efforts would lead to the organization of the Concordance as a sovereign power and to the codification of the Anaryssian religion as the driving influence in the nation's cultural and political affairs for the next millennium.
The Concordance is considered a Quarantined State by outside observers, owing to the country's strict policies on emigration and immigration and its active policy of armed neutrality and geopolitical isolationism. However, industrious Clan leaders in the major metropolitan areas have become de facto plenipotentiaries for the state in economic affairs. Living conditions have been slowly improving in Cynereth over the last forty years, but continue to lag behind its neighbors. Reports of human rights abuses are difficult to substantiate due to the country's state censorship of the news media. The country has no formal diplomatic ties with any nations, though it does host invited delegates at the Court of Valsia. Despite its geopolitical isolation, the Concordance is considered a moderate military power in Belisaria, with the country strongly rumored to possess both biological, chemical and nuclear weapons in its strategic arsenal.
In July 2019, the insurrectionist Colsil Voyd front staged a attack on an expedition of researchers and scholars studying ancient ruins in the Cailor Mountains in western Cynereth. The resulting government cover-up led to a significant geopolitical crisis, greatly-destabilizing the government in Laeleath and prompting multiple economically-depressed regions in the south to align with Caenaran and Illewei insurrectionists in forming a new populist front against Laeleath and the government of the Concordance. These actions would ultimately trigger the start of the destructive War of Manumission, also referred to as the Caenaran Uprising in the north, the War of Anaryssian Oppression in the south, and the Cynerethic Civil War regionally.
