Nagykunság (Latin: Cumania Major)[1] is a historical and geographical region in Hungary situated in the current Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok county between Szolnok and Debrecen. Like other historical European regions called Cumania, it is named for the Cumans, a nomadic tribe of tengrist Kipchaks that settled the area. Its territory is 1,196 km².
