Located in Soltenna and bordering the Amiyant Sea, its only land border is with Qonklaks.

War of Supremacy
Battle for Macyeaq
The Battle for Macyeaq took place from August 12 to September 3, 1893, between the forces of Olboros Qonklaks, the breakaway Republic of Macyeaq, and Vosan. The conflict began when the Houmthry Pwihaimbi, Prince Regent of Olboros Qonklaks, issued an imperial edict on behalf of Emperor Ëratsó II to reconquer the breakaway state and bring it back under Qonklese control.
On August 12, 1893, the Olboros standing military, the Myanwani, and the Amiyant Iron Fleet which consists of 20 warships, surrounded the region and began a blockade. The Vosan government, one of the victors in the War of Supremacy that led to the founding of the Republic of Macyeaq, protested the blockade and sent the Vos warship CV Pamê to Macyeaq to intervene on behalf of the new Macyeaqi government. However, the warship was quickly sunk by the overwhelming numbers of the Iron Fleet.
In response to the sinking of the CV Pamê, Vosan declared war on Olboros Qonklaks and sent 8 ships from its colony in the Three Straits to engage in battle. However, all Vos ships were sunk during the ensuing naval battle by evening of September 2, 1893.
The region was conquered by Qonklaks within a month, on the dawn of September 3, 1893. The Qonklese forces were able to take control of the region and reestablish Qonklese imperial authority over Macyeaq. The new Macyeaqi government was dissolved, and the region was once again placed under the control of Olboros Qonklaks per the Treaty of Jema.
The Battle for Macyeaq had significant consequences for the relationship between Qonklaks and Vosan.
The Helsonian Union supported the founding of the Supreme Commune of Qonklaks, recognizing its pursuit of self-determination. However, the Helsonian Union insisted that, in return for their economic support in post-war reconstruction, Macyeaq would be given to Helsonian rule, along with the former territories of the Xńi-Tan International Municipality. This demand was rooted in the historical claim that Helsonia was the successor state to Terminia, the global power that had originally seized Macyeaq from Qonklaks.
As a result of the agreement between the Helsonian Union and the Supreme Commune of Qonklaks, the Province of Myaichoun was transferred from the latter to the former as the new Territory of Macyeaq on May 10th, 1950. The transfer was a significant event in the region, representing a compromise between the two parties and the fulfillment of the Helsonian Union's insistence on regaining control over the territory.
The transfer of Macyeaq and Xńi-Tan to the Helsonian Union was met with significant resistance from within the Supreme Commune of Qonklaks. Some members of the politburo argued that the transfer violated the self-determination and sovereignty of the Kwang people, who had settled the region before it was seized by foreign powers. In response to these protests, the SCQ and the Helsonian Union engaged in diplomatic negotiations to address the outstanding issues related to the transfer of Macyeaq and Xńi-Tan. It was determined that the territories would instead be recognized as being temporary under Helsonian administration for a period of 100 years.
In 2005, the new Qonklese administration and the new Terminian Dominion began talks to discuss the future of the Helsonian-occupied concessions of Macyeaq and Xńi-Tan. Given the history and the conflicting sovereignty claims, it was decided that a join sovereignty agreement would be established in Macyeaq, and the full return of Xńi-Tan to Qonklaks as the Yeinti Special Administrative Region. The region is strategically located at the crossroads of major shipping lanes and trade routes, making it an important hub for international commerce. Companies from both nations would be able to take advantage of this to expand their businesses. The region's economic potential, combined with the stability and security provided by the joint administration, may attract foreign investment, promoting the region's growth and development. The joint sovereignty arrangement in Macyeaq would also help reduce trade barriers between Qonklaks and the Terminian Dominion.
The joint sovereignty arrangement in Macyeaq promotes political stability by reducing the potential for conflicts between Qonklaks and the Terminian Dominion. The shared decision-making bodies ensure that both nations have a voice in the region's governance, which can help prevent misunderstandings and disputes.
One of the main challenges faced by the Macyeaq Security Council is border security, as Macyeaq is vulnerable to illegal border crossings and smuggling. Other challenges include terrorism, cybersecurity, and intelligence sharing. Effective coordination and cooperation between Qonklaks and the Terminian Dominion has been crucial to address these challenges and ensure the region's overall security.
