This article is little more than a placeholder for Afghulistan. You can help Conan Wiki by expanding it.



Afghulistan is a country of the Hyborian Age.

Geography[]

Afghulistan lies in the southwestern foothills of the Himelian Mountains, north of Kosala and west of Vendhya. It is inhabited by warlike tribes of mountaineers, who raid the northern reaches of Vendhya for spices and gold. The Vendhyans say only the Ghulistani know all of the twists of the mountains and valleys of Ghulistan, knowledge which is used to lay ambushes with great effect.

History and politics[]

There are hundreds of tribes scattered through Ghulistan. Those mentioned in the saga include the Afghulis, who rule the southwestern region known as Afghulistan, the Wazulis, who control southern Ghulistan near the Vendhyan border, and the lesser tribes of the Dagozai, the Galzai and the Khurakzai. Typically, the tribes obey a strong, charismatic warrior-leader, and follow him until he makes a mistake. One failure, and the leader is deposed or even killed.

Population and culture[]

The Afghuli tribesmen are tall and powerful, with broad shoulders, brown skin, curly hair and long beards. The harsh mountain winds dry and wrinkle their skins, giving them a wizened appearance. They fight with the tulwar and the yard-long Zhaibar knife. The languages spoken in this region are said to be related to the language of Iranistan, though Yasmina the Devi of Vendhya had studied the language of Iranistan but could not understand the people of Ghulistan.
