The Federal Republic of Gangestan is a southeast Asian nation in the Indian subcontinent. With a population of nearly 600 million, it is one of the world's largest countries, and situated roughly along the Indo-Gangetic Plain, it is one of the most fertile and densely populated. The capital of Gangestan is at Delhi.
The predecessor of Gangestan, the Mughal Empire, ruled over most of India. However, the expansionist policies that made the empire expand caused it to collapse in on itself, only having nominal control over India. Eventually, the British conquered Bengal after the Battle of Plassey in 1757. However, the empire faced its largest reduction in the nineteenth century, when, in a series of wars, France and its ally Mysore conquered large swaths of the empire. The Mughals even lost nominal rule in these wars. The remnant was centralized and fell back under direct Mughal rule. The state was termed the "sick man of India" and weakened more and more with time. Eventually, the Islamic rulers became cruel, creating pyramids of skulls akin to their hero and ancestor, Timur. In 1932, republican forces declared a republic and the Gangestani War of Independence began. In a bloody conflict compared to the English Anarchy, the Federal Republic of Gangestan was declared.
