Mablag (Mablic: 9hplafg [m̥āpʰláːk]), sometimes spelled Mablág and officially the People's Democratic Republic of Mablag, is a country located in Northwest Nagu, composed of XX provinces. At XXX km2 (XXX sq mi) and over 43 million people, Mablag is Sahar's XX(X)th largest country by total area and the XX(X)th most populous country. The capital and largest city is Twap Laen (Dwab-Lān). Mablag is bordered to the north and west by the Jaxukuk Sea, to the east by Angnyax, and to the south by Cananganam. Although nominally a parliamentary democracy, the 2003 coup established a military dictatorship.
Mablic peoples migrated from North Nagu to present-day Mablag from the 8th century. Three Mablic states arose and quietly coexisted for around 100 years, competing for resources with neighboring Nagu Fals kingdoms. The three kingdoms were unified in the 14th century by Pwaethyaehngok.

Mablag (/ˈmɑblæg/; Mablic: 9hplafg, DLRM: Hmaephla Aik, pronounced [m̥āpʰláːk]), officially the People's Democratic Republic of Mablag (Mablic: b)6gtqna(2tl1dkr7b9hplafg, DLRM: Prriik Thueng na Hneu Thlaut Khriep Hmaephla Aik [prík tʰūŋ nàn̥ɛ̂ tʰlât kʰrīp m̥āpʰláːk]), sometimes spelled Mablág, is a country in Northwest Nagu.
The Mablic word 9hpla Hmaephla is hypothesized to come from two different Proto-Prra-Blen words: *xmāy, meaning "far", and *bluls, meaning "prosperous". These combine to mean a "prosperous, far-away land". Its equivalents are: Deyab mhybrul Maeypruc and Aysaung may)uw Mayvluw. Numerous folk etymologies exist. As an example, some theorize that Hmaephla Aik originates from mibl1g miplauk, meaning "onto water".
There is evidence of continued habitation in Mablag as long as 10,000 years ago. Pieces of pottery found in Khrieplaupmee Cave date to 6,950 BCE, the oldest in the region. Mablic peoples first settled in the area around the 8th century from the lake-filled northern Nagu, crossing the Ainhpraup Mountains.
Over time the Mablic people split into three distinct ethnic groups, the Mablese, the Deyab, and the Aysaung. The Mablese settled around Phuuplaiy Bay, the Deyab in the Phueaey Penninsula (encompassing most of modern-day Falsland), and the Aysaung in the fertile Aepleuphrrouy Valley. Conflict with the neighboring Nagu Fals was minimal, if nonexistant.
By the 13th century, three states were prominent in the area. Around 1040, Epwii Aekrew, a local Mablic ruler, crowned himself the first king of the Hneing Kingdom. Most historians consider Hneing the first kingdom of the Mablic people. The third king of Hneing, Paephhmai (1092-1127), is believed to invent the Mablic script. Hneing embraced Achawism in the reign of Tetluenh (1156-1197).
To the northeast, Kheitaephwauc, a Deyab warlord, founded the Kingdom of Teiyapra in 1246. He unified the surrounding area and his dynasty would rule the kingdom continuosly for the next century.
To the southwest, the Pren Kingdom was founded in 1203 by Phueppreu, an Aysaung farmer who led a successful rebellion against the Ngiupleipyai Kingdom, which controlled the area in the late 12th century.
The kingdoms ran under a system called Khekhnhauk, a system that blended sharecropping and feudalism. Not much is known about the kingdoms’ early rulers. After nearly 300 years of peacefully coexisting, a tax rise implemented by King Prraeprroipyeu resulted in a rebellion in Pren in 1311. When Teiyapra sent emissaries to Pren’s capital to offer their help in aiding Prraeprroipyeu’s supression of the revolt, they were intercepted and killed by the rebels. Teiyapra subsequently declared war on the rebellion, and when the rebels took over the government, Teiyapra was effectively at war with Pren. King Naupleuw of Hneing was looking to expand Hneing’s terriotory and the war provided an opportunity. Within 20 years, all three kingdoms were unified under the Rreu Dynasty by Hneing's 14th king, Pwaethyaehngok.
