Artsakhball (formerly known as Nagorno-Karabakhball) is a countryball in Caucasus that is only recognized by Armeniaball. Azerbaijanball, from whom Artsakhball declared independence, thinks Artsakhball belongs to him.
Artsakhball born as a 2ball, adopted by Urartuball, Ancient Armeniaball, Caucasian Iberiaball, SPQRball, Parthiaball, Persiaball, Bagratid Armeniaball, Mongol Empireball, Russian Empireball, Transcaucasiaball, and Sovietball. Was then an Autonomous Oblastball within Azerbaijan Azerbaijan SSRball.
Artsakhball has always had a rebellious streak. Like much of the region, he had been passed down from Empireball to Empireball for a long time as a provinceball. When Bagratid Armeniaball ruled him, he rebelled in the year 1000 with Syunikball and Geghark'unikball and started his own kingdom, becoming Kingdom of Artsakhball. However, Mongol Empireball later took him over in 1261.
Nargorno-Karabakhball became an independent, though mostly unrecognized countryball when a war over him between his big brother Armeniaball and Azerbaijanball ended. Soviet Unionball had given Azerbaijanball custody over Artsakhball in the 1920's even though he was of Armenian clay, as a favor to Turkeyball. When Soviet Unionball was dying, Artsakhball no longer wanted to live with his abusive surrogate parent Azerbaijanball, and broke away with his brother's help. He had tried to legally break away through majority vote, but Sovietball said nyet, and Azerbaijanball got angry and started bombing him. Armeniaball rushed to his brother's aid. In 1994 Azerbaijanball begged for a ceasefire because Armeniaball was into kicking his ass, and the ceasefire is still in effect (in name only), with kebabs still shooting across the border and violating ceasefire. Artsakhball was very damaged after the war, but began to rebuild and is about to open his first international airport. USAball is thinking about recognising him. But for now, he is only recognized by Armeniaball, Transnistriaball, Abkhaziaball and South Ossetiaball and some stateballs.
The biggest flare-up of the war since 1994 happened in April 2016 when Azerbaijanball attacked him again, blowing up and slaughtering Talishball (one of his border villageballs), mostly to distract his public from corrupt government and falling prices. Azers hired thugs and mercenaries from ISISball, and Artsakhball had target practice on Azeri tanks, threatening to move on to more fun targets like oil pipelines and the Mingachevir reservoir next should things escalate further. But soon enough Azerbaijanball called a ceasefire again after four day bombardment, with minimal territorial gains. For many months kebab started to increase their amount of weapons for probably another invasion. In February 2017 he had a constitutional referendum where he voted to stop calling himself Nagorno-Karabakhball and call himself Artsakhball (a sort of nickname until that point).

How to draw
Drawing Artsakhball is not easy.
- Draw a black circle and divide it into three vertical stripes with red on top, blue in the middle, and orange at the bottom, like the Armenian flag.
- Draw a white sideways zig-zag chevron on the right side such that three small portions of the zig zag fill up one stripe. It is very apparent in the flag.
- Add the eyes and you have finished.
