The Emirate of Jabal Asada (Mande: Manden Kurufaba, Arabic: إمارة جبل الأسد / Imbrator Maandeen), also referred to as 'Jabal Asada', is an Muslim state in OTL Sierra Leone region of West Africa. It is a prosperous and wealthy state in Africa, and enriched with cultural heritage mixed from both African and Middle Eastern origins. 

Founded in the 1350s century by the Malian noble Baraq al-Shams who conquered the region from the local natives, the Emirate quickly grew to the height of its power under the reign of its most famous monarch, Ayoub El Edha (1460-). It is techinacly a Malian tributary state, in the 1380s, the Bonom war that eventually led to Jabal Asada becoming independent from the Malian Empire. The Shams dynasty eventually merged with another dynasty ruling in Bononam, called the Qamar dynasty. In the late 1390s, the territories south of Mali broke apart again from the earlier dynastic union. More recently, Lotharingia's West African Company made contact with Jabal Asada and established a port colony in Koya, in exchange for european engineers. The Emirate house is the Qamari dynasty.
