Yamnat is a formable nation in the Middle East, representing a unification of the South Arabian kingdoms in the fertile uplands of Arabia Felix. It can be formed by any Arabian cultured country that manages to conquer all of the main cities of the area, in 450 AUC divided between the kingdoms of Saba, Qataba, Himjar, Ma'in, and Hadhramut. While not especially rich and somewhat isolated from the wider world by the vast expanse of Arabia Deserta, a united Yamnat would be well-placed to control the Red Sea region and the rich trade goods of the region.
Historically, Arabia Felix was dominanted by Saba up until the 1st century BC, but Yamnat would instead be united for the first time by Himjar in the 3rd century AD. While Himyar and the rest of Yamnat would eventually be conquered by Aksum and then Sassanid 20px Persia some centuries later, the distinct peoples and region of South Arabia would re-emerge in the medieval era as the Arabic kingdoms of Yemen.
Formation requirements[edit | edit source]
The fertile plateau of Arabia Felix has been a cradle of civilization for millennia. It is long past time that the warring kingdoms that spill Arabian blood in the name of petty vengeance, are united under a common, and ancient name.
