Most based historical "faction" before 1500?

Byzantium gets my vote, longest-lasting country before then

Ancient Egypt lasted much longer.

this, Cleopatra was born closer to the invention of the iphone than she was to the building of the great pyramids

Ancient Egypt wasn't a continuous nation-state the way the Eastern Roman Empire was. It was many kingdoms and cultures cobbled together for historical convenience.

Cleopatra's Egypt was also a different Egypt to that of say, the Nubian dynasty. All they share is geographical location. That's like saying Italy and the Roman Empire are the same country/nation.

But that's just not true. ERE was exactly as much of a nation state as ancient egypt. i.e. not a nation state.

Egypt did have a large amount of cultural continuity until the Greek conquest though. More than the Roman empire and modern Italy at least.

I think you are getting it mixed up with the Holy Roman Empire, because the Empire of the Greeks/Eastern Roman Empire/Byzantine Empire most certainly was a unified empire with an Emperor.

The idea that the nation-state is a modern invention isn't quite true, nation-states are simply an evolution of the city-state concept of Ancient Greece, and was propagated by the Romans.

Our idea of a nation-state is almost directly lifted from Rome, and the 'Byzantines' kept that same Roman self-identity.

That's highly suspect, but not completely untrue based only on archaeological records.

The problem is, papyrus doesn't keep well, while stone does.

"Byzantium, how do you plan on winning this naval conflict?"

"We've got flamethrowers and Vikings on our side, we've pretty much got this nailed."

that's incorrect friendo
the first use of the word 'nation' in anything resembling the modern sense is from the council of constance in 1418. the entire idea of rome, a single sovereign government over all christendom, is antithetical to that of the nation-state.

Probably the United Kingdom. Across two different incarnations of the Empire, Britain has left a lasting legacy on the modern world that arguably rivals that left by the Romans. They also have held more territory globally than any other empire in history, which is a neat statistic in its own right.

Pic related is every country on earth that has seen combat action from British troops in some capacity.

To clarify, the named ones in white are they few countries that /haven't/ seen British troops.

Whoops, I missed that part. What I forgot to mention is that I was never taught to read, apparently.
