The Second Czucz Empire was a kav-ruled polity that spanned, at its maximum, the western shore of Lhavres, the northern half of present-day Urabor and some territory in Nagu. It was the most important polity of the region for several centuries and controlled the trade in the Czucz Sea even in periods when its military faltered. It was established in 203 CE with the unification of the Czucz Merchant Republics and expanded in the following centuries with the collapse of the Lhav Empire. Its position as a regional power would only be challenged with the first unification of Kavrinia by Hunhatošlhë in 227CE and it would take several centuries until it was truly superceded.

While a primarily maritime polity in its inception, archeologists and historians also consider the Second Czucz Empire as the locus of several social and technological advances in agriculture in the borosan early middle ages, being the first polity in the region to employ manorialism, along with advances in terror-bird ploughing. Its system of elective monarchy was also spread to several of its neighbours and successor states, providing, in some analyses, the conceptual framework for borosan rulership up to the Setyal Empire.

Its collapse as a unified polity is closely tied to the rise of Kavrinia and the rebellions in present-day Urabor, which together conspired to deprive it of most of its agricultural output, mostly centered around the region corresponding to Nuartow. Regardless, Czuczlhayaa would remain a major player in Czucz sea trade.
