The Middle East regions are the combined regions of the Near East super-region and the Persia super-region. These regions serve as battle grounds between several powers vying for supremacy.

One pair of such powers consists of the Flag of Ottomans Ottomans and the Flag of Mamluks Mamluks as they fight for control over the Near East super-region. At the beginning the Ottomans tend to be busy with the European front and consolidating the minor nations at its home region thus the balance of power between them and the Mamluks is preserved. As the time progress and the European theater quiets down the war between the two will begin. Either can emerge victorious in a one-on-one match between the two although the passing time may act against the Mamluks' odds.

Any regional Coptic.png Coptic and Orthodoxy Orthodox nations will strive to see either of the above two fall and crumble to gain control of their provinces with religious importance. Some of the more ambitious minor Anatolian nations eyeing the conflict between the two, may rise to the occasion, in an effort to gain control of the Ottomans' lands and power under the eventual banner of Flag of Rûm Rûm.

Over at the Persian super-region, the Flag of Timurids Timurids are struggling to hold together their empire. At the moment the rebellious notions of its subjects are soothed down by the Timurid ruler, but he is old and not long for this world. As the years will go by, so will the sons of the old empire fight. Any nation with aspirations to grandness may take the decision to enthrone a Timurid prince and stake a claim for the empire's old borders. Only the turning wheel will tell if the winner will uphold the old traditions or whether they'll adopt new religious customs under the flag of Flag of Persia Persia.

Tired and beaten from the on-going war, the once glorious Timurids turn their eyes elsewhere, to the lands of the east. Why die trying to preserve an old name when there are new provinces waiting - no, yearning - to be conquered? − They wonder to each other. That is when the Timurids of old become the Flag of Mughals Mughals of tomorrow.

Amidst all of these, two old and bitter rivals lie in wait. Flag of Aq Qoyunlu Aq Qoyunlu and Flag of Qara Qoyunlu Qara Qoyunlu, the people of the sheep, continue to survey their surroundings, looking for weaknesses and biding their time for yet another clash.
