Summary: Western Assai (Assai: Assai-Ekóru, Zhatsai: Etase n'egzi, Sy: Měrītsk' Zỳ'ńé, Krai: Chzevetas, Cadisian: Bajos Assai, Pashrani: Éte'óh, Khazhar: Iete'o, Emrit: ezh'Assi qhoru, Otcsi: Tcseve̋ete̋az, Metsian: Xᴢɪғᴇ́ᴛ) is a geopolitical region in the south-east of the continent of Kai-Meridia, forming the westernmost part of the Assai subcontinent. Bordered by Kaishuri to the west (accross the Kai Sea), the Meridian Ocean to the north, Grand Balisar and Eastern Assai to the east, and Cadisia to the south-west, Western Assai consists of 36 sovereign states, of which the Sy Federation, the Persesi Federation, and the Republic of Krai are the largest. As the birthplace of the world's two largest religions, deeply influential global philosophies and cultural ideas, and a meeting point between numerous people groups and cultures, Western Assai has a long and rich history which makes it one of the most diverse regions on the planet of Sabel.
Western Assai has historically been divided into three major sub-regions: Greater Assai, being the temperate region along the east coast of the Kai Sea; The Korat and Syon, referring to the arid territories north of the Korati Mountain Range, including the Sy Desert and Korati Steppes; and Southern Assai, which includes all territories south of the Korati Mountains and the Republic of Pashran. With approximately 404 million inhabitants, Assai is the third largest region of Kaijin people in the world, behind only Aurinoea and the Riden Peninsular, as well as being the largest region of ethnically Asahric people in the world.
The modern-day region of Western Assai was first inhabited by the Proto-Balo-Asahric People some 70,000 years ago, who migrated across the Meridian Ocean from Tersa. Centuries later, the Kaijin, under the Alawazi Empire, would invade Western Assai, resulting in a drastic change to the demographic make up of Western Assai. This immigration would lead to the ethnic, cultural, and ideological division of the Western Assai region into two - the Kaijin-dominated north and the Asahric-dominated south. Western Assai, in particular the Korat, was the birthplace of the Korati Religions, of which Ainism and Ramvokism would later develop into the world's two largest religions respectively. In Southern Assai, the rise of the Khazh-Pashrani Empire in 3629 Ʋ led to the solidification of Asahric culture in Southern Assai lasting up until the conquest of Khazh-Pashran by the Assai Empire and the end of ancient Assai in 4598 Ʋ. The development of the Kaijin Assai Empire in Greater Assai in around 4553 Ʋ led to the rapid expansion and spread of Assai Kaijin culture throughout much of southern Kai-Meridia, and its collapse following the invasion of Iskanderion of Balisar and the subsequent Third Assai Civil War marked the end of Classical Assai and the beginning of the Middle Ages circa 5008 Ʋ.
Following the intense political instability of Western Assai during the Middle Ages, Western Assai entered a Golden Age at the beginning of the 56th century following a renewed interest in classical art and culture and the discovery of valuable metal deposits in Upper Assai. The increased wealth and political stability of this period led to the solidification of numerous key continental powers in Western Assai, many of which developed colonial possessions in Anakuria and the Eastern Vespian Islands. The development of Estrian philosophy in Pashran led to the Pashrani Revolution in 5678 Ʋ which quickly resulted in the spread of wider Estrian and nationalist movements throughout Western Assai during the Years of Revolution lasting until roughly 5737 Ʋ and the onset of industrialisation.
In the early 59th century increased tensions between the various political powers of Assai sparked the Great Assai War of 5816 Ʋ with the invasion of Warczebs by Kolaz Reumán. The catastrophic war resulted in the radical redefinition of political power and national borders within Western Assai and its ideological division into two competing spheres of influence - the Kaijin Estrian Second Assai Empire and the Asahric Makrosist Kazhos of Metsia. The Sabel World War in TBC resulted in the establishment of a Pan-Kaijin Alliance between the nations of Riden and Western Assai, which would later develop into the Kaijin League of Nations and the development of the Menyar Union in the 60th century. The years following the war saw a decline in power for both Assai and Metsia with subsequent nationalist movements of various people in central Southern Assai establishing independence and a new sense of cultural identity among many long-oppressed Asahric people. Since then, Western Assai has continued to develop economically and remains a region of intense cultural and ethnic diversity within Kai-Meridia and a global center of culture and economic growth worldwide.
