Janistan is a large nation located in Central Asia. It borders China, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Kazakhstan. It is one of the worlds largest producers of oil, potassium and gold. It has a population of 70,000,000 living on 3,000,000 sq km of desert and steppes. Most of the populace live in cities but there is still a large amount of the population ruralised. For an Asian country it has a very high HDI of 0.939. The people are also very well off with a GDP per capita of 1.8 trillion.


Janistan can trace its history back to 869 AD when the area was under the control of Sultan Farzwa Jamal III. He controlled an empire stretching as far as New Delhi. After his rule it eventually shrank to the size of Uzbekistan after several crushing defeats to Mongols and Chinese soldiers.

But then in 1394 it came under the rule of Sultan Yamaz Wawa IV who reacaptured Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan and a part of Kazakhstan. China agreed to a peace settlement and later the Mongols. After 40 years of military build-up Iran and Afghanistan were invaded in a huge invasion totalling 90,000 men. The Iranians and Afhghans surrendered but in doing so handed over most of their countries.

For a period of about 500 years there was a quiet time in Janistanian history. However in 1900, it was invaded by China and was completely consumed. In 1929 it gained independence when China collapsed into civil war. It was then invaded again in 1957 by the Soviet Union and split up into Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Tajikstan and Kyrgyzstan.

Eventually in 1990 it gained independence yet again and launched itself into an economic boom tripleing its economy. This brings us to present day Janistan.


Janistan is mainly flat desert and steppe. Although it does contain some mountains from the Himalayas. It surrounds the Aral Sea and has a coastline on the Caspian Sea.
