Nise, (Rahelian: جمهورية نيس المتحد) officially the Republic of Nise, is a sovereign state in Northern Couis. Sharing a border with Tsabara to the South, Sohar to the East, and the Gulf of Assoniare to the West. Nise has a total population of 10.6 Million citizens making it the 47th largest nation in Kylaris by population. The only official languages in Nise is Rahelian, and Estmerish there is four other notable languages spoken in the nation. The capital city is Madinat, the largest city is Ghatakia other major cities include . The predominant religion in Nise is Asha Ifrani followed by roughly 79% of the nation.
The area that modern Nise is composed of during ancient times was called filler due to the Urí Margidda Valley. The extensive river valley gave rise to several large city states and eventually the rise of the Anniseran Empire and its subsequent collapse. By the turn of the millennium Anniseria would be conquered by the Second Holy Dominion. By 1000 AD, and the subsequent shrinking of the Third Holy Dominion, the establishment of the Sultanate of Madinat which would become a domineering figure over Madinat and the Urí Margidda Valley and become a prominent player in fighting against many crusades in what is now Tsabara.
During the late 19th Century the Sultanate of Madinat would collapse following an Estmerish invasion which seized the Urí Margidda Delta and Madinat. This collapse resulted in a variety of small states appearing up and down the Uri Margidda River and along the Coast which Estmere would spend the next several decades subjugating and conquering up until the beginning of the 20th Century. Soon after Estmere would establish the Sultanate of Nise as a protectorate using a relative of the former filler dynasty as a figurehead. During the Great War Niseran Colonial troops would fight against Gaullican colonial troops and Nise would be occupied. Niseran troops would meet a similar fate during the Solarian War fighting against Etrurians.
Following shortly after the Solarian War Nise would gain its independence. During the Twilight Revolution the Sultan would become deposed by a combination of the Niserian Military and several political groups. Since achieving independence Nise has been in a constant conflict with Sohar over the Urí Margidda Valley, known as the Urí Margidda Conflict. Nise has rose to prominence as a regional player within Rahelia as a military and economic power. There has been growing concerns over the power struggle between strongarm politicans, oligarchs and the military as of late.
The Government of Nise is a Federal constitutional republic with a bicameral legislature and an independent judiciary. Nise is a member of the Community of Nations, Union of Marolevic Brotherhood, ITO, and the GIFA.

Following the end of the Niseran Civil War and the Founding of the Republic of Nise, the nation has taken an active stance of “neutrality” hoping to maintain the states independence and actively pursue mutually beneficial agreements with all nations. This stance differs little from what Nise under the Awan family has followed in regards to foreign policy.
