Komania also known as the Imperial State self-designated as ( Koman: . Şahmêzramaz .; Şahmêzramaz [ʂɒh.mʲezä̌rämäz]), is a sovereign state in Vaniua. With about 42 million inhabitants, Komania is the ?-most populous country. Comprising an area of 840.440 km2 making it the ? largest country in Vaniua and the ? in Sahar. Komania is bordered to the north by the Melkanchuta lake, to the northeast by ? and Kaatkukia, to the east by Balakia, to the south by the Great Khanate of Gushlia and Zinsha-Vogia, to the southwest by Ohania and finally Xonqorot and Shohuan to the west, Komania is considered to be the country with most shared borders in Vaniua followed by Balakia and Shohuan. The country's location in central Vaniua bordering the Melkanchuta lake along the flowing rivers of Braghak and Kashis give it a geostrategic importance. Shanvan is the country's capital and one of the largest economic centres of the nation only behind Samadar.

The term Şahmêzramaz meaning "Imperial State" arose during the early 19th century as a common designation for the lands comprising the unified Koman Mizarates, it was initially proposed by the former Basher regime as an attempt to include non-ethnic Komans into the union. The name is often shortened to Şahramaz in unofficial documents.
The name Koman ( Koman: . Qaman .; Khaman ['xɒmän]) designating present-day Komania only, is a medieval term first recorded around 1150 AD by Vaniuan scholars to designate the short-lived Khanate of Qoman suited along the southern coasts of the Melkanchuta lake, it became a popular ethnonym among Komans during the Great Horde after Shi Oshar applied the term to the newly settled Kalkali tribes of the former Kalkali state. It became synonymous with the term Qamandi, applied to the former inhabitants of the Qoman Khanate and their language. The ethnonym "Koman" is itself of unknown origin, however, several theories suggested by prominent scholars pinpoint a possible origin from the Koman word Qama meaning "coast" and hypothesising the possible suffix -an, Khaman might itself mean "the people of the coast" or "of the coast" itself a possible cognate to the Koman suffix -a. Other theories suggest a possible origin from the word Kham meaning "ten" historically used for the tribal confederation of Qom which was itself composed by ten core tribes.
The self-designation Tamyiran meaning "from Tamayir" begun to be used around the 16th century to refer to the Koman diaspora throughout the Great Horde, composed by the ethnonym Tamir and the suffixes -yir meaning -an, an archaic suffix meaning "people of" or "land of" it was at the time exclusively used to refer to any territory inhabited by tribes of Tamayir origin and the Kalkali Khanate in general.
Historically, Komania has been known through several names, as a literary tradition, poetic names have been made to designate Komania or highlight any of its peculiarities, prominent variants are Diəghshenden or Diəghshendeh meaning "land of white sand(s)" unintentionally synonymous with "land of holy sands" and Deşyəzen, meaning "land of thousand valleys" which is currently used as the official motto.
The earliest evidence of human activity in the region has been dated back to around 100,000 BC and 90,000 BC during the Micoquien palaeolithic era with the discovery of archaeological artefacts throughout several regions of Komania. Around 95,000 BCE the Melkanchuta lake formed a vast body of water which might have comprised the lower areas of the Vaniuan basin and most of its northern areas. Such scenario provided an excellent refuge for early human settlements. The first settlements formed the base for the rise of pre-Vaniuan cultures which would later organise into the first city-states. It is assumed that the first inhabitants of the region were predominantly hunter-gatherers following a nomadic lifestyle but would later become increasingly sedentary as agriculture became common around 6000 BC.
Around 4000 BC the expansion of agriculture and new technological innovations pushed pre-Vaniuan cultures to the development of larger settlements, with the rise of city-states came the establishment of trade and early industries of pottery, weaving and metalwork, mostly relying on agricultural activity. The Gashar civilisation arose from the Black-pottery culture around what is now considered as the golden crescent between modern Komania and Xonqorot, founding the city-state of Zǎmarṭar (modern-day Samadar) which at its pick attained a population of 90,000 becoming an early trade hub and centre of economy.
by 3000 BC several city-states had been founded around the Golden Crescent, however, around 2800 BC population growth and agriculture abruptly halted due to the consecutive droughts produced by climate change, this came with the gradual expansion of proto-Vaniuans towards the south (believed to have started around 3000 BC), bringing with them their equestrian and nomadic lifestyle, ultimately changing the landscape. Intermixing is believed to have occurred as early as 4000 BCE but didn't become prominent until their full arrival around the Golden Crescent in 2000 BCE.
Around 2000 BC, the Gashar civilisation arose to what became the Neo-Gashar Kingdom of Guzabur, a dynastic kingdom ruled by former leaders of the Gashar civilisation. The kingdom was known for having a multicultural population of pre-Vaniuans and a considerable portion of proto-Vaniuans. Whether these populations engaged majorly in agriculture is unknown, however, with the discovery of ancient crops all along the western coast of Komania, it might indicate a sizable engagement over farming and agriculture. The Guzabur kingdom is thought to have been founded by Raštar Ṛašxir, a prominent chieftain known for being a successor of an unbroken lineage of rulers from the Ghashar civilisation, his rulership was succeeded by his eldest son Ṛaštargan in 1973 BC who ruled the kingdom for the next 40 years, under his rule, Ṛaštargan implemented a series of policies which introduced the use of a complex tax system imposed over nomadic populations, he later encouraged the construction of religious temples with remarkable architectural features, despite his accomplishments as a successful ruler, his conviction for the use of oppressive policies against nomadic populations is thought to be a decessive factor for the Vaniuan revolts that would later bring havoc to the region. With the death of Ṛaštargan in 1933 BC, his rule was brought to an age of instability with several attempts to usurp the throne, due to the assassination of his only son, the throne was abruptly overtaken by Ṛaštargan's youngest cousin Mišire. Under his rule, the kingdom experienced a rapid change in demographics, despite his brutal attempts to assimilate the Vaniuan nomads, the population fell to counterpoise and Guzabur was subsequently engulfed by an overwhelming majority of proto-Vaniuans. The kingdom lasted until its imminent fall around 1500 BCE, from then onwards agricultural production decreased sharply.
The area of the former Kingdom of Guzabur became part of loosely based tribal confederations, strongly based in nomadism. With severe climate changes in the region, agricultural production was not retaken and thus lost. Most settlements founded during the Guzabur kingdom were therefore left abandoned and no urban activity has been accounted for from this period. It is believed that the desertification of the region pushed Vaniuans to follow a continuous nomadic lifestyle with pre-Vaniuans being subsequently assimilated.
