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 present-day lands of Komania once formed part of a ligature of pre-Vaniuan cultures, most dating back to 4000 BCE starting with the Black-Pottery culture, major settlements such as Masaṭar (modern Samadar) contributed heavily on Vaniua’s early agricultural development. The Black-Pottery culture would, later on, develop into a series of city-states, from which early urbanisation arose. A large network of settlements comprising the pre-Vaniuan states of Ghashar and Uruk developed which marked notable traces of complex architecture within the Golden Crescent of Vaniua.
Renown Khomani experts have been able to trace considerable linguistic development within the region, during excavations held in 1890 archaeologist Shajali Wazghan uncovered a series of clay tablets pertaining to the Ghashar civilisation, this discovery enabled the reconstruction of a large substrate of surviving words in the Khomani language.
Early Vaniuan migrations
By 2000 BCE a large portion of south and eastern Vaniua became subject to raids from proto-Vaniuans, which at this stage were heavily nomadic and had begun an early process of ethnogenesis. Due to a warmer climate, large portions of arable land were gradually rendered infertile, combined by a gradual displacement from proto-Vaniuans most pre-Vaniuans were pushed from their settlements and slowly reduced into pockets, this change marked a definitive shift of demographics across Vaniua. It is estimated that by 1000 BCE Vaniuans formed the majority of the region.
A question of whether such demographic displacement came by means of assimilation or tribal violence is still in debate. A large portion of archaeological evidence, however, suggest at least an initial clash between sedentary pre-Vaniuans and the more nomadic proto-Vaniuans.
Early Modern Period
Era of Industrialisation
Koman Civil War
Located in the near centre of the Vaniuan region, Komania is considered a landlocked country, sharing the Melkanchuta lake with Dohjan the country extends itself along the Vaniuan plateau with a total area of 814.130km2.
Cities, provinces and regions
The government of the Imperial State is based on the 1958 constitution, following several coups in the 19th and 20th century, Komania has seen the instalment of various monarchical regimes, all following various forms of ideology. Due to the theocratic nature of the Ashar dynasty, politics within the country have been heavily influenced by theological and unsecular practices, with no formal distinction in the current constitution. Attempts on secularising the government have all but failed, mostly due to the Kharem Haz “law of balance” a transpolitical doctrine promoted by the Fukhdar regime.
