don't know if you're answering me or Jehanne.
Would a situation where the edges might be in occasional conflict but
the center wasn't be sufficient? In such as case it could be that one
border was a bit unsettled while other borders were calm.
There were periods where Persian was at peace with most of its
neighbors to the east and the west, but not with one or two neighbors
in the northeast or northwest, but the only places where this was
noticeable was on those particular borders. The rest of the Empire
was at peace.
And, trust me, the Persian Empire was itself already a mingling of a
variety of cultures. While the Courts and the Learned might know a
couple languages (Persian and Arabic), each part of Persia spoke a
difference and often unrelated language.
