Ziqarites arrived in the city after the Ziqarite Persecution fleeing from the collapse of the Emirate of Alizban. They settled in secret but since the establishment of Greater Sacramento have had a cultural shift to return to their Ziqarite identity.

Azumanakans arrived in the region as merchants during the Emirate of Cordoba in small numbers but have seen a large influx during the 1800s - 1980s for economic opportunity.

Eminopleans came to the city in the 1600s from the first wave of Aversation Immigration arriving from the port of Florence. They mark the earliest cultural impact from the region in the western part of Greater Sacramento.

Malagans have been settling in the city since the founding of Cordobium but came in significant numbers during the 1200s from Yerounia.

Gandorians have been arriving in the city since the 1700s but have been coming in large numbers since the early 2000s for economic opportunity.
