Since ancient times, Kazakh Eli has been inhabited by various nomadic tribes. Cities such as Taraz and Turkistan served as important cities on the Silk Road. During the early 13th century, the region of Kazakh Eli was invaded by the Mongolian Empire. After Mongol rule ended in 1456, the Kazakh Khanate emerged, and remained until 1847, when it was taken over by Russia. From 1917 to 1991, Kazakh Eli (then called Kazakhstan) was occupied by the Soviet Union. In 1991, when the Soviet Union broke apart, Kazakhstan became independent, and Nursultan Nazarbayev became President. Kazakhstan enjoyed great prosperity and growth under his rule. He was actually the first to suggest renaming the country to Kazakh Eli, to avoid the negative reputation that countries named with the suffix -stan had received. In the early 2010s, oil was discovered, adding more to the country's wealth. By 2020, Kazakhstan had almost all the amenities of a first-world country, including freeways, large cities, and high-speed rail. Their gross GDP had managed to bypass that of Russia's. In 2025, President Nazarbayev was elected out of office. Kazakhstan continued to grow after Nazarbayev. It wasn't until 2079 that Kazakhstan a renamed Kazakh Eli.
Kazakh Eli benefited more from the Great Cataclysms of the 23rd and 24th centuries than they suffered. Large portions of Siberia, at the time occupied by Russia, flooded. After Ursalia was established, the Siberian areas now occupied by Kazakh Eli were left without a government. Kazakh Eli then annexed these regions. Due to the rising seas, the Aral Sea filled with water once more. Parts of the cities of Atyrau and Aktau were flooded, but they were rebuilt on higher ground. After the Cataclysms, Kazakh Eli emerged as the richest and most powerful country in the region.
