Looks great!
Nanzhao--that's a southern Chinese state from one of China's "warring States" periods, isn't it?

Got the official text

The Nanzhao kingdom was formed by the unification of six Tai kingdoms in 729 CE when one local ruler in Yunnan overcame his neighbours, with Tang Chinese support. The
new kingdom played the Tang off against the Tibetans, allying with and deserting each in turn. Nanzhao was also able to dominate the East-West trade routes from China and
Tongking through Myanmar (Burma) to India. By the 9th century Nanzhao had become an imperialistic state. The Pyu kingdom in northern Burma was made tributary in the 760s
and destroyed in 832 CE. Tongking was captured in 862 CE. Nanzhao declined during the late 9th century and fell in 902 CE, when a rebel official killed its last emperor and set up
a new state. Three dynasties followed in quick succession before Duan Siping seized power in 937, establishing himself at Dali founding the Dali kingdom. The Mongols under
the leadership of Kublai Khan conquered the area in 1253 CE. The Dali King Duan Xingzhi himself defected to the Mongols. During the preceding two centuries, the Tai had been
moving southward in large numbers, eventually forming the bulk of the population in what is present-day Thailand.
