Hisaristan, officially the Empire of Hisaristan (Farsi (Hashtadehi and Ravshani): Shahanshahiye Hisaristan lit. 'Imperial Hisaristan', Tekish and Qushuq: Hulokuiylar Davlati lit. 'Hulegin State', Sükhbaataryn: Hu'legin Ezent Güren lit. 'Hulegin Empire') is a sovereign state in Central Catai. The country is bordered by Vynozhia to the North, Uwhistan and Dayganistan to the South, Ústekia and Dýnaria to the East, and Dreyvisevich to the West. Led by Shahanshah-i Khaan Rustam Shah of the House of Hulagu, Hisaristan is a unitary constitutional monarchy comprised of ten regions, four Ilkhanates, and one capital city.
The territory that now constitutes Hisaristan was first settled by Iranian nomads from Kazhwir who founded independent Kingdoms in the Hashtadeh and Dasht-e Tuzh regions. During the 6th century b.c.e., the Hashtadehi civilization arose in the region, centered around cities such as Hazarakhan, Davazderud, and Shahestan that developed into regional centers of trade due to their strategic location on the Silk Road. These Hashtadehi city-states were eventually conquered by the First Mihranid Kingdom and were ruled by various Iranian dynasties for the remainder of antiquity. In the 7th century c.e., Hisaristan came under the control of the Irsadi Davazdi Emirate under which Irsad spread to the region. The Mihranids were later overthrown by the Ravshani Hormazdis, under whom the wealthy cities of Hashtadeh grew into important centers of science and learning. However, as Irsad spread to the Qushuq Steppe, Türük incursions from Transcandar into the Dasht-e Tuzh intensified. The region was later devastated by the Sükhbaataryn invasions and came under the control of the Sükhbaataryn Khaanate until its collapse in the 14th century, after which Hashtadeh and the Dasht-e Tuzh were largely dominated by Türük states. In the 15th century, the Kahramanids conquered Hashtadeh and were later overthrown by Arslan Khan, a descendant of Hulagu Khan and the founder of the Hisari Khanate.
Under Mirza Shah, the Hisari Khanate conquered many of the successor states of the Sükhbaataryn Khaanate until a defeat at the hands of the Chezderino Kingdom in 1551 saw the loss of what is now Serjebizci and Davazdanu. Despite this, his successors maintained a strong economy and a flexible military that underwent significant reforms with Kodeshi aid in the 17th century, entering a prolonged period of expansion that saw it reach its present-day borders. In 1640, the Chezderino Kingdom collapsed, leading to the reconquest of Davazdanu. In 1675, Hisaristan entered a political union with a now-independent Serjebizci to counter the rising influence of Czecuroslavanya. Despite the union, for much of the 19th century, the Hisari Khans and Sclavonic Kings largely acted independently of one another.
Over the course of the second half of the 19th century, Hisaristan became one of the largest producers of cotton in the world, allowing Hamid Khan to institute a series of military, administrative, and economic reforms that transformed the Hisari state into one that could sponsor the industrialization of the cotton and textile industries. During the 1880s, the Socialist revolution in Serjebizci led to the breakup of the union and the declaration of the Empire of Hisaristan in 1884. The Revolution of 1910 led to the foundation of a constitutional monarchy and the Imperial Parliament.
Hisaristan has a population of 60 million that is largely comprised of Hashtadehis, Ravshanis, Hazarakhanis, Tekish Türüks, Qushuq Türüks, and Sükhbaataryn Hazarakhanis. The official languages are Hashtadehi, Ravshani, Hazarakhani, Tekish, Qushuq, Sükhbaataryn, and Arabic. Irsad is the state religion of Hisaristan and is followed by ninety percent of the population. Although Hisaristan is officially a democratic constitutional monarchy, the Shahanshah-i Khaan dominates the central government, wields significant influence over the legislature, and has been accused of human rights abuses and the suppression of political dissent. Human rights activists have described Hisaristan as an authoritarian autocracy with limited civil rights and political freedoms. Hisaristan has a mixed market economy and is an important producer of cotton, textiles, oil, natural gas, and hydroelectric electricity.
