Mandaistan

From Alternate History
Jump to navigation Jump to search

In an alternative world, the Mandaeans of the Euphrates and Tigris river valleys create a nation-state called Mandaistan, from Mandaean and -stan.

Mandaistan borders Manistan, a larger country of Manichaeans who freely practice Manichaeism.

Mandaistan is a country where Mandaeans practice baptism everyday, where mandis abound, and where international visitors marvel at the "Varanasi of Mesopotamia."
