So, this country has been around 10,000 years? I'm asking because I'm playing by the rules and this IS before recorded history started.

Since you are playing by the rules, Yes, this country was formed even before that, it is very well safe to say that this country is one of the first civilizations to start, some even say this is the first one.

I doubt Ireland existed back then when this country was started.

I will give you another clue: It is in Asia.

Since this is a tough one, you can use google, but I doubt even they will have that.
