Which country/empire does the Old Anuirean Imperial resemble from earth's history?
Someone else said France is like the Old Empire of the Anuireans.
I'm saying no - as the people of France did share a connection and Brecht/Rjurik/Vos/Khinasi did & do not share a culture.
Like Roman empire maybe...
Rome held three seperate regions of tribes under it's sway(essentially England, France, Germany).
Anuirean Empire held, Brecht, Rjurik, Vos?
Rome held Egypt partially in the sawy.
Anuirean Empire held a bit of Khinasi?
Where it falls apart is here...when Rome collapses, France becomes the Protectorate with Italy pledging to them.
Clearly the southern & capitol of the Empire did not pledge to Brecht

How about the (resurected) Roman Empire under Charlemagnes ?
You have very different cultures under one crown (French, German, Lombard), united for a short period of time by conquest, and the society is probably closer to that of the Old Anuirean Empire than the Roman society.
The (First) Roman Empire is probably the only time that you'll see Western Europe (for Anuire) and the Middle East (for Khinasi) under one sovereign, but I think the society is just too different to fit well, there is nothing like the feodal organisation of the Old Anuirean Empire.

who had nearly fought the Dragon of Agnor,
who had nearly stood up to the vicious Chicken of Bristol,
and who had personally wet himself at the Battle of Badon Hill.

You are trying way too hard to find one perfect analog for all of the elements of Anuire.
Anuire is its own place. It has some similarities in some places to France, or a Rome +1000 years, Byzantium, the Holy Roman Empire, England. It is in some ways an amalgam of ideas from around Western Europe mixed with some original stuff and some fantasy.
There is no country with Anuire's situation or history. The best you can do is draw analogies to elements of Anuire.
