Kathastan, officially the United Republic of Kathastan (Katha: TBA) is a landlocked country in central Coius. With an area of TBA square kilometers, it is the TBAth largest country in the world. It is the easternmost nation on the Satrian subcontinent and borders Zorasan to the north and east, x to the south, Dakata to the southeast, and Ajahadya to the west and north. With a population of just over 23 million in 2020, it is the TBAth most populous country in the world. Situated in the foothills of the Shalegho mountains, Kathastan is largely hilly and mountainous, with rolling hills and valleys in the north steadily transitioning into large mountains in the south. The country’s population density varies considerably, from over 1,000 people per square kilometer in central TBA to less than 5 in the mountainous south.

In the fourth millennium BCE, Kathastan was home to a number of small agrarian kingdoms, most notably TBA and TBA. Over the course of first century CE, the Sangma dynasty steadily took control of the region, conquering the Sinhari kingdoms one by one. Irfan was brought to the region by the Second Heavenly Dominion, which conquered the area in 137 and brought about the rapid Irfanization of the Sinhari peoples. Sinharia would remain under Irfanic rule for over 700 years, until the resurgent Sangma empire once again conquered Sinharia. Sangma control of Sinharia began to weaken in the 14th century, culminating in the Revolt of 1381, when the Thakur of Sinharia, TBA, declared the region an independent Irfanic sultanate and drove the Sangma out of Kathastan for good.

The Sultanate would collapse in 1593 after a war with the Togoti Khaganate, who would rule Kathastan until their collapse in 1662. Sinharia was subsequently incorporated as a province of the Rajadom of Ajahadya. As the ideology of pan-Satrianism grew in the early 20th century, a divide emerged in Kathastan between the Badist minority who favored a united Satria, and the Irfanic majority who favored an independent Sinharia. In the late 1920s, the Irfanic Liberation Army, an anti-colonialist and pro-Sinhari independence paramilitary group inspired by the Green Pardals, began an insurgency against the Raj. The situation worsened with the outbreak of the Ajahadyan Civil War in 1935, with Thakur TBA of Kathastan declaring the province an independent state. The ILA and the Thakur formed a short lived united pro-independence movement, and were able to push both the Raj’s forces and the pan-Satrian republican forces out of Sinharia by late 1935.

Following independence, stuff about modern history goes here

Since the 1980s, the Sinhari economy has become one of the fastest growing in the world, with the country’s GDP nearly doubling from 1980 to 2000. In addition, living standards in the country have increased considerably, with Sinharia’s life expectancy and literacy rate growing substantially since the 1980s. However, the country remains plagued by corruption, high levels of income inequality, and repression of political opposition by the ruling Sinhari Future Alliance, which has ruled Sinharia continuously since 1984. Sinharia is a member of the Community of Nations, International Forum for Developing States, and the Irfanic Cooperative Conference.
