History of Cananganam
The History of Cananganam, taken to include Pre-Asuranesian peoples such as prehistoric TBA and TBA periods, spans the 2nd Millennia BCE into the present day. Several periods predominated Cananganam, leading to dramatic shifts in the demographics of the region, with Cananganam historically having been a major power of the Eastern Asura, reaching as far west as Jute and to Letzia in the East, as far north as Atsiq and as far south as Yahara. The impact of Cananganam led to several developments of Boroso and Nagu as independent continents from the rest of Sahar.
The first settlement in Cananganam was Biktuva, having been founded in the 3rd Millennia BCE. The Cananganamese had believed in various deities, in a cosmopolitan fashion, seeing all Gods as just their own, with heavy distinction between the village spirits and the spirits of the land. The first people believed to have inhabited Biktuva were of the TBD culture, having influenced much of the Canamic groups that immigrated into the region by the 2nd Millennia BCE. Historical records of the earliest settlements are limited as much of the settlements predate complex writing in the region by a millennia, leaving much of their origins and their people to mythology.
Much of early Cananganamese history was dominated by successive city states, dependent on artisan trades, and long range trade throughout the coasts of Nagu and Boroso. It was at one point subjected to foreign rule for a period from c. 129 BCE into 281 CE, when TBD lords took control of the ruling class of Cananganam, impacting much of the culture and changing much of the historical artisan designs leading to much more Borosofied clothing and artworks. After this period had ended, Cananganam had a massive boom in population and trade flourished to a point where Cananganam began to expand its various dynasties abroad, leading eventually to the Kavetty dynasty, which reached the extent of Cananganamese military expansion, and driving trade to further reaches of the world. This dynasty, however, was short-lived compared to others where it soon collapsed as soon as it had started, having only existed from 851 to 872.
The last dynasty of Cananganam under the Hṓtty would reign from 1421 until 1912, when it was toppled by a Kuulist revolt, leading to a complete political and social divide as state atheism and anti-intellectualism had dominated the nation, causing what progress the nation had made to fall into obscurity. Today, Cananganam sees very little influence on Sahar as much of the nation has lost any economic value and the loss of its strategic value as a key port through the Asura left the nation in disrepair and in constant turmoil. Today, much of the nation remains under Kuulist control, even as several separatist groups hold control in several remote regions.
