Kingdom of Yemen

Worshippers of the Moon (Almaqah), Sun, and the Morning Star, the Yemenis ruled an ancient and prosperous land. This wealth has begun to decline a bit due to diverted Roman trade and an invasion by Axumites - at Roman instigation.

Famous in history is the Ma'rib dam, which was the largest component of an ancient irrigation system which rendered Yemen populous and well-fed. Support of this immense project was, however, a drain on finances.

The Sabaen script, trade, and later role in the history of Islam ensure the lasting fame of Yemen.
