The People's Republic of Kazirstan (Kazirstani: Raathik Yunyuh Kazirstan), commonly known as Kazirstan, is a sovereign state located in south-central Sarpedon. Kazirstan covers an area of 1,297,739 square kilometres and has a population of 89,690,450. The state borders Klyjanoragh to the west, Caphiria and Great Vâlcea to the north, and the Omnium Ocean and the Kiravian territory of Sakhalins to the south. Karakol is Kazirstan's capital and economic and cultural centre. Thii'ah is the country's largest city and a hub of transportation, international commerce, and industry. Constitutionally, Kazirstan is a unitary state, but has significant powers devolved to autonomous areas that are home to national minorities. The state exercises jurisdiction over 17 provinces, 3 autonomous territories, and 3 Cities of Provincial Status. Kazirstan is a multi-ethnic state with 13 officially recognised national ethnic groups, ranging in population from 74,670,000 (the majority Karikanna people) to 12,350 (the Netch'rohya people of the far western Netch'roh Autonomous District). Kazirstan is an officially socialist state, and has been ruled by the Communist Party of Kazirstan since 1945.

Around 2200 BCE the first settled agricultural societies began to emerge around The Pall'ath river delta in what is now eastern Kazirstan. Old Saikhuhn in the city of Kaið'Shii'thakav was built in 1753 BCE and is one of the oldest continually inhabited places in the world. The Imperium of Caphiria was in irregular contact with Kazirstani kingdoms from antiquity onwards, but never managed to permanently conquer any area south of the Lat'ah mountain range until the early modern period. The two major Kingdoms of Karrikan and Rillakar unified in 1486 CE to form what some consider to be the first Kazirstani state. Under the leadership of King Zii'nha the Great, the Karrikana-Rillakara Kingdom conquered the neighbouring states of Jann, Gilleah and Kaluhn'viir, unifying much of what would later become the modern state of Kazirstan under one banner by 1603 CE. In 1837 CE the Kazirstani port of Thii'ah was conquered by the Caphirian navy and became the centre of the Southern Slave Trade. It is estimated that as many as 2 million people were enslaved and shipped to Caphiria from 1837 to 1945. At the outbreak of the Great War Kazirstan was neutral, but in 1944 was invaded and occupied by Caphiria under the pretext of the Zal'nha Telegram, a forged diplomatic communique purporting to show Kazirstan's intention to enter the war on the side of Urcea. The Caphirian invasion emboldened a variety of nationalist and communist groups, including the Communist Party of Kazirstan under the leadership of the charismatic Tristaya Shii'thakav, and by early 1945 the entire country was in open revolt. Unwilling to risk the opening of a new front, Caphiria acquiesced to the demands of the Communists and sued for peace. Under the terms of the Karakol Accords all Caphirian troops were removed from Kazirstani territory and the independence of Kazirstan and the legitimacy of the new government was recognised.

Etymology

The name Kazirstan is derived from the archaic Ancient Kazirstani words kazir, a word meaning storms or great winds; and stann meaning soil or land. The suffix stan is remarkably similar in pronunciation and usage to the Persian affix stan, but there is no known link between these two language groups. In historical usage, Kazirstan literally translates to land of storms or land of great winds.

Though no longer used in common parlance in reference to weather, the word kazir has been the name of the country's currency since 1876.
