Not allowed, but you could probably create a nation that has a religion based on the stars.

The Empire of Hanchu and the Eastern Campaign

East of Hanchu lie the three provinces of Yongzhou,Hengzhou, and Shaozhou. The three provinces have an interresting history having been provinces of Baishu Nations like Liu Han under the Shu Dynasty (983AD-1206AD) and Xin Han under the Xin Dynasty (538AD-582AD) , Baiqi nations like Western Qi and Great Song, and provinces of non baiqi or baishu like Yuan (Yuan is considered a non Baiqi nation though theres a great deal of debate about it , as mongolians have been occasionally grouped under Baishu or Baiqi) and the Colonial nation that conquered the three provinces between 1921 and 1925 (the chaos that occured during Hanchu under the Jin Dynasty (1920AD-1934AD) resulted in the destruction of a large number of important documents from that period which is why there are very few native sources about who originally ruled certain areas)
Because of this there has been a great deal of debate about what culture the three provinces belong to, and what the dominant culture is of the area.
According to many followers of the two civilisations theory the three provinces are the most eastern areas of the Baishu Cultures . In the eyes of the supporters of the Great Civilisations theory the three provinces are the most western provinces of the song cultural area . Followers of the core and sphere theory are divided on the three provinces as some believe that they are the sphere areas of several cultures, while others consider them the core area of their own hybrid culture.
Negotiations with the three provinces have been going on for a while and the three provinces have agreed to be completely annexed, The provinces have been annexed.

Cultural theories

The two civilsations theory, or dichotomous culture theory, is the theory that that there are two great cultural groups that dominate what outsiders refer to as China, The Baishu cultures of the west and south west, and the Baiqi cultures of the east and north east, and that in places where both exist one of them dominates the other . to be the eastern edge of Baishu civilisation
The Great cultures theory believes that there are four cultutral areas in China each with its own cultural history the Baishu area in the south west, the Baiqi area in the northwest, the song area in the south east (Considered by many to be the area where baiqi and baishu have intaracted enough that cultures have formed with aspects from both. The reason its called song is because mostly native Song dynasties have existed in both east and west, with Song being an accepted word for what westereners call China, and QiānSong, or Thousand Song being a widely accepted term for the groups in China) , and the Qing cultural area in the north west (The Qing area is where neither Baishu nor Baiqi have much interaction nor dominate the area.The Qing were considered outsiders by Shu, and after they conquered Song Han, Qing became a by word for foreigner or outsider. Ironically Machu are generally viewed as Baiqi. The area is also known as XiBei, or north west).
The Core and Sphere theory states that there are areas in which a culture or greater culture dominates called core areas, and areas in which a culture or greater culture exerts a great deal of influence but doesnt dominate called sphere areas.

The Empire of Hanchu and the Southern Campaign

West of the Ly areas currently owned by Hanchu lie the remaining provinces of Southern Ly, These provinces have a larger Tai population than other provinces in Southern Ly . Tai groups in Southern Ly are called Lan Xang, after Lan Xang (1305AD-1665AD) a heavily Tai Ly state that started as a vassal of Yuan, became an ally of Tsiompa Han in 1336AD, merged with it in 1357AD. and regained its independence in 1445AD. The language spoken by the Lan Xang is Modern Lan Xang , one of the six languages that make up the Ly language Family , and the one closest to the Tai languages, though unlike its ancestor Middle Lan Xang it is written excusively using in a variation of Van Xuan script rather than using a combination of Van Xuan, Khmer, Xin, and Cham scrpts. Van Xuan script is a descendant of the ancesteral script used by the Shu states.untill the 9th century AD when it was overtaken by sword script (which itself was overtaken by the Impirial script of Cao Dynasty Hanchu in the late 18th and early 19th century AD). The area like the rest of southern ly is plurality Buddhist in the north (Most of which are theraveda), Hindu in the south (mostly Shaivite Brahmanism) , and folk religion in the center, with large minorities of Muslims (Mostly Shia with some Ibadi), christians (Mostly Nestorian), and various other faiths spead throughout the area. The negotiations have gone well the provinces have been annexed
