Shirakball is a province of Armenia-icon Armeniaball. Gyumriball lives with him. He does not like earthquakes, like the one that broke him in 1988. He is also often gazing longingly across his border at the lost city of Aniball, now situated on clay claimed by Turkeyball. His clay outside Gyumriball is mostly blank, treeless and desolate.


Shirakball born as a 2ball, adopted by Urartuball, Achaemenidball, Caucasian Iberiaball, SPQRball, Parthiaball, Bagratid Armeniaball, Persiaball, Russian Empireball, Transcaucasiaball, Sovietball and Armeniaball.

His clay has been inhabited for quite some time. Urartuball called him Eriakhiball. He was known as the Shirak Cantonball in Ancient Armeniaball as part of the larger Ayraratball province. Shirakball had his golden age under Bagratid Armeniaball as Aniball, the capital, was part of his clay. But then Byzantineball and Seljukball reduced him to ruins.

He was part of Russian Empireball for some time, until it collapsed and Armenia was of independent. Turkeyball invaded and took over his clay in 1918 and again in 1920, but Sovietball came and made them give it back; but not all of it.

In 1988 he was shaken by the earthquake on Loriball's clay. He has recovered some since then.
