Persia is a formable in 1444 and an existing nation in 1501 located in western Asia. Historically, the state of Persia was formed in the early 16th century by the Safavid dynasty and their Qizilbash (half tribe; half "military quasi-order") supporters. After the initial military success Persia went on the defensive. During the reign of Abbas the Great the process of modernization of the state began, though this stopped after the fall of the subsequent Afsharid dynasty. Subsequent governments of Persia lost possessions in the east, west and north.

At the mere age of 15, monarch has taken his father's position as head of the Shiite Turkmen tribe. He has quickly established a base of power in the northwest and proclaimed himself Shah of Iran. Several of the neighboring regions have been conquered and the possibility of a resurrected Iranian nation doesn't seem so absent anymore.
