Nevira (Neviran: Nivixi /niβiɣi/), officially the Republic of the Delta (Neviran: Tukeṫḳet Nivixe /tʉkɛtʼkʼɛt niβiɣe/), is a country located in east Baredina. Nevira is considered a regional power in both Ekuosia and Baredina, having the largest economy on the continent and being an influential member of the Ekuosian Union. The Neviric Empire, which conquered much of Ekuosia in the late 15th century, remains one of the largest empires in history by contingent area.

Nivixi comes from the Proto Ekuo-Lahiri word for 'delta'.
Nevira has been inhabited by hominids for millions of years, and by early modern humans since shortly after they evolved on Sahar, due to its proximity to the origin of the species. While most modern Nevirans can trace their ancestry to the Ekuo-Lahiri people who arrived in the last 3,000 years, there remain some descendants of pre-EL indigenous groups.
The Neviric peoples first originated near the Kasingadh lakes in the Ekuosian desert. During the Adzo-Neviric migration, the ancestors of the Neviric and Adzamic peoples migrated southeast through the then-green desert over a few centuries, splitting into several distinct peoples as groups split off; those that were to become the Neviric people reached the Ekuos Delta around 1500 BCE (or earlier?). Over the next four hundred years, they established dominance over the various other peoples in the region, but mostly remained in the delta region as they had not yet unified.
By the early 1400s, Nevira had slowly begun to reunify. In the 1430s, the [GROUP1] took control over the entirety of Nevira and declared themselves leaders of the Neviric peoples. The 1450s saw a wave of assimilation as [GROUP1] rulers sought to homogenize the country in hopes of minimizing internal conflicts. Even after the resistance was defeated and shamed, the emperor continued to build up the military, having a strong desire to "uplift" other Ekuosian nations through conquest. The first emperor of the actual Neviric Empire, [PERSON1], shared a similar but less extreme desire (coupled with a hunger for power). Just two years after coming into power, [PERSON1] ordered the Neviran military to invade the west.
Later they also took over some stuff to the north.
The invention of gunpowder was essential to the rapid development of the Neviran Empire, but also to its decline. As conquered peoples acquired the new technology they were able to fight back more effectively.
The collapse of the Neviran Empire left a chaotic array of small splintered states across Ekuosia and Puzimm.
In the 16??s Nevira became the seat of another empire, this one mainly focused on overseas expansion into Lahan and Ystel, as well as much of Povania and southern Puzimm. This empire was longer-lived than the previous, remaining a formal empire until the 17??s. Even after the official dissolution of the empire, Nevira maintained some control over some of its former colonial assets into the 1???s.
First Republic of the Delta
The Saruan Empire began to face internal turmoil after a comet was sighted or something. A civil war broke out when many lords rebelled against the royal family, compounded with popular uprisings. At some point in the 1750s, the royal palace in Yisma was razed to the ground. The formation of the Republic of the Delta was declared shortly after. However, much of its Ekuosian possessions, including all of Povania and northern Nevira, had become independent by this time. The Republic of the Delta annexed the remnants of the Saruan Empire in its entirety, and expelled many members of the nobility in Lahan and Ystel to prevent the formation of a government-in-exile.

Almost all of Nevira has a humid subtropical climate, which is quite warm and even in the winter does not typically reach freezing. The north of the country is hotter and split into monsoon and savannah regions, both of which experience wet and dry season cycles, and rarely dip below 10° C. Most areas can reach very high temperatures of 35° or higher in the summer/dry season.
Nevira is mostly subtropical, with tropics in the north and islands. The country was originally forested, with tropical rainforest in the north and deciduous broadleaf forest in the south, although much of its territory is now dedicated to agriculture, mining, and lumber sectors, which has decreased biodiversity, with some species becoming natively extinct.
Nevira was the site of domestication for the pig, some varieties of millet, and the silkworm.
Nevira is divided into ?? states.
