Tangia (Ayu language: "Τανγυα" Tangua, Buanian: "Tañu", Mahan: "Τανὲμά" Tanèmá), formally Empire of Great Tangia (cuneiform logogram: Tangian cuneiform Word Tangwa Bis.png; Ayu: "Ταυ Τανγυανα Τηλανλερα" Tau Tanguana Teilanlera, Buanian: "Tañusy", Mahan: "μα Τήλάν-μὰλι Τήλεά υ Τάο Τανὲμά" ma Teélán-màli Teéleá iu Táo Tanèmá) - country located by most of its area in Western Kyon (called Canisia) and on the islands of Panthalassa ocean and Spheniscia (antarctic areas of Kyon), with land area of 3 620 604 km² (1 397 923 mi²), neighbouring Sekht to the east, State of the Neshi and Devia to the north, Shur to the south and Muria and Aydinir to the west. It consists of a large island Kaori, Western Isles Akeira and Hiranea, Pinu peninsula, Demarcative Territories of Wild Lands, south-Devian island of Atirai, Ma'uri island, and Spheniscian New Emperor's island and a significant number of small island of the Panthalassian ocean. Capital of the country is in Kun Atla. Its head of state is the Emperor, ruling under the Crown of Kaori, and rulers of particular dominions are called kaoritanu. State religion is karaism, mandatory by force of law on all territories except for deserts Marao and Takangari, where Tangian shamanism is permitted, and Buania, where Buae religion is observed. State symbol is Lykaon moon in front of Buanian cross, in Buania the flag is orange, in other territories it is navyblue. In 9700 EK the population was 74 544 874 and average person's lifespan was 60 years.

Years 9654 - 9750 EK described here were the golden age of Tangian history. Technologically, the Tangian empire was Kyon's equivalent of Earth's British Empire of late 18th and early 19th century, accepting that in some aspects it was more technologically advanced (conveyor belts, rubber and wheel tyres, catadioptric optics, microscope), while in others it was late (lack of humanitarian achievements such as constitution or human rights charters, no industrial revolution yet). The Tangian empire was an economic and military power, in particular famed for the largest and most modern navy in the world at the times. It was one of the first larger powers to widely utilise flintlock firearms in its land forcers on a large scale, with well fitted tactics to use it. Economically, Tangia lost its meaning as a historical monopolist in production of tropical rubber, where the recipe was independently discovered or stolen and repeated by Sekht, but it became a textile power, of export of spices, nautical components, as well as a logistical power and an importer of precious gems and metals from production powers of these goods in antarctic regions of the world. The Empire was consistent in its policy to import raw materials and ores and export of processed goods (clothing, vessels, decorations, ordinance), requiring specialised industrial knowledge. It was also a power in services, first due to introduction and improvement of Sekhtonese financial thought, and then thanks to natural development of services segment under optimistic macroeconomic conditions. Cheap labour force, fuelled by inhumane exploitation of slaves, mostly of Pinu origins, resulted in Tangia of years 9654 - 9750 having a massive surplus of export over its import.

Success of the Tangian empire in its golden age, from the political angle, was a result of three key factors:

  1. peaceful and fruitful accession of Buania into Tangian Union;
  2. efficient state reforms: political and ideological unification of Kaori provinces, where on the course of religious revolution their own, local monarchies and democratic systems were removed, replacing them with an efficient imperial system with an emperor on top and kaoritanu serving him, and thanks to a unified monetary system across almost entire empire, and also thanks to methodical cultural transformation leading to cult of the emperor and development of prominent aristocratic social layer, and with it, a culture of obedience and discipline among middle and lower social strata, as well as to higher use of slavery for profiteering;
  3. good treatment of Buania and very optimal, in longer term, result of Third War of Saaka in years 9645 - 9662, which resulted in a collapse of the economic and civilisational domination of Sekht in the region.

It is assumed that the Tangian golden age concluded in year 9750, when the imperial-feudal system combined with already well developed early modern age capitalism, together with country mismanagement by expensive and arrogant aristocratic class, powerful magnates that lacked aristocratic privileges, with inhumane exploitation of Tangian slaves and working class, and waves of blight, tossed the country into loss of stability. Nail in imperial coffin was the meteorite impact onto Kun Atla capital city in 9867 EK and the subsequent Tangian Civil War of 9900-9905 EK, which caused the empire to ultimately collapse and in result of which Tangian Republic was formed.
