The War of Amaian Independence, sometimes known as the Second Balak-Zwazwan War, was a war fought in eastern Vaniua between 1885 and 1888 which involved X.

A ceasefire commenced in [date] 1888, with the following Peace of Geswi formally ending the conflict in [date] 1889, making official a partition between a Zarasaist Amaian state and a Pashaist Zwazwan state.


The first Balak-Zwazwan War, wherein the Zwazwan Empire was defeated, heralded a period of decline for the empire and a rise in Balak influence. In 1874, Balak emperor Jimâşim I made the Shozasan Proclamation, asserting the Balak Empire's rightful claim to the legacy of the Great Horde. With this, he inherited the title of Defender of the Faith in eastern Vaniua, and with this new authority declared his intent to protect the Zarasaist population of the Zwazwan Empire, issuing an official warning to the Zwazwan government to not make any attempt to infringe on the rights of Zarasaists. The Proclamation, coupled with this warning, invigorated disgruntled Zarasaists, who had lived under Pashaist rule for centuries(?). The Balak Empire, in turn, used the resulting tensions and its new responsibility as a crowbar to enforce an ever increasing amount of religious freedom in Zwazwamia.

As a result of these concessions, tensions continued to swell between the Pashaist population in the south and the Zarasaist population in the north and east, as two distinct national identities began to crystallise around this division - a distinct Zarasaist Amaian nation and a Pashaist Zwazwan nation. Amaian nationalists espoused a narrative of oppression under their Zwazwan overlords, as insurgent activity began to become increasingly prominent.
