Cinasia (traditional Baizi: 德華), officially the Republic of Cinasia, is a country in Northern Archanta located on the Muinon Peninsula. In addition to its territory on the Peninsula, the country includes the self-governing exclave of Yuethon. Mainland Cinasia is bordered by Sin Se to the southwest and Kuehong to the north. The capital of the country is Yu-King (禺興) while the largest city is Tan Kong.

Various Neeg tribes have inhabited the land of what will be Cinasia since 800 BC, though at times the land has been invaded by the neighbouring Kue and Bai. In 200 AD, the various tribes founded the first Neeg Kingdom of Zuchaw, which went on to subdue the Kue tribes. However, the Kingdom became a vassal state of the Bai Qiang Empire and was subsequently annexed by the Bai forces in the 6th century AD. During the Princes' Era, the region became the heart of the influential Yuan (源) family, who controlled the various princely states in the region. The Yuan became one of the leading forces of the Northern States during the War of River Valleys. Although defeated, the Yuan kingdoms continued to survive during the First Bai Dynasty.

Under the Suo, the many Bai princes were exiled to the Cinasian region during the Ninwan invasion. They were joined by rebels in the aftermath of the failed White Dragon Rebellion in 1574. In 1623, with the support of the native Kue, the Bai on the Muinon Peninsula proclaimed the Yuet Dynasty against the Suo. Despite foreign assistance, they failed in taking over the Bai Region and continued to rule over the Muinon Peninsula, as it became subject to foreign powers. Nevertheless, taking advantage of the foreign trade, the Yuet modernised but soon collapsed with the establishment of the Cinasian Republic in 1918 under Ho Ling Wha. The Republic became embroiled in political instability, as Kue rebels proclaimed independence while communists attempted to take over the country. The Republic stabilised in the 60s with Federal States' assistance, and with foreign direct investments, Cinasia rapidly developed and became one of the fastest-growing economies in the region.

Today, Cinasia is one of the most developed states in Northern Archanta and is ranked highly in terms of political and civil liberties, education, health care and human development. Cinasia continues to be claimed by the Bai Empire but is recognised as an independent state by many nations. The country is populated largely by ethnic Bai who descended from migrants to the peninsula, alongside native Neegs, Kue and other indigenous minorities. The official language is Cinasian, which the government and the people insist that it is a separate language from Baiyu.
