Nyatol (Lestzi: nĵatol, Njatol [ˈnʲa.tuɫ]), officially the Principality of Nyatol, is a city state located in southern Soltenna. With an area of only 210.3km2, it is the second smallest sovereign country on Sahar after Yorudbynbad, and borders Bosato to the south and Zaizung to the north.
Originally a small Mañi fishing port, Nyatol was acquired by the Lestzi Duchy of Gshons during the 16th century, where it quickly an important port in facilitating trade between Boroso, Ekuosia and Soltenna. After the annexation of Bosato by the Terminian Three Kingdoms in 1760, Nyatol lost its role as a major centre of trade and entered a period of economic downturn.
Nyatol became part of the Letzian Empire in 1835, though it remained largely under the control of the Duchy of Gshons. The Akulanen War of 1881-87 led to a combined Leszti-Shohuanese defeat of Terminia, resulting in the independence of Bosato and a boost to Nyatol’s then-struggling economy. After the Grand Ekuosian War, Letzia introduced constitutional reforms that would strip the aristocracy of their hereditary titles and ownership of land. Under pressure to protect Nyatoli business interests along with rising dissatisfaction with Lestzi rule, Nyatol declared independence in 1956, with the son of the former Grand Duke of Gshons, Lorros, becoming the first Prince of Nyatol.
