Koize (Koizan: Koizē [cçi'zi]), officially the Federal Republic of the Koize, is a country located in north Miraria. At [size], it is the largest country on Sahar by a considerable margin. Extending from the Gelog Sea in the west to just north of the Miralayan mountains, the Koize spans across 8 time zones and shares land borders with Ngeyvger, Ensia and Suenia, Korihim, Achiyitqana and Fazulavaz.
The modern state of the Koize can be traced to the emergence of the North Mahavi as a distinct group between the 2nd and 6th centuries CE. A confederation of North Mahavic tribes gradually settled eastern Koize in the following centuries, displacing some of the native Maakpauean population. In the 13th century the region was invaded by the Sunrise Horde and the North Mahavic tribes forced to swear fealty to the ruling Juhash, who went onto conquer large swathes of the Central Mirarian steppe, paving the way for further Mahavic expansion west. After the disintegration of the Sunrise Horde, the centre of power became split between various splinter empires, with the predominately Juhash elites either assimilating to - or being overthrown by - the predominately North Mahavic inhabitants.
Before the Sunrise Horde
The collapse of the Sunrise Horde
Following the collapse of the Sunrise Horde, Koize was subject to widespread instability and infighting. Several people groups migrated around and out of Koize, setting up their own Khanates and successor states. Though short, this period significantly changed the political landscape of the Mirarian Steppes.
