Litvania (Litvanian: Litvensko, officially Litvanian Republic, Litvenská republika) is a lakeside country in North Central Uletha. It is bordered by Zalivnia to the west, UL180G to the northwest, Beldonia to the northeast, and Drabantia to the east. Litvania's territory spans 22,700km2, and is mostly mountainous. Litvania's population is estimated at 2,000,000, and consists of mostly ethnic Litvanians. The largest and capital city is Loravia, and the official language is Litvanian.
The Slevic tribes arrived and populated present day Litvania in the 5th and 6th centuries. Together with the Drabantia they united to create the first independant state, Gran Loravia. After the fall of Gran Loravia, Litvania became part of the Egalian Empire . The Empire later fell to an invasion by Drabantia, and they aquired Litvania as a protectorate of the Drabantian Crownlands. Later, the Egalians gained power again and enforced violent conversions of religion and banned the Litvanian language and culture to be practiced. Many items of cultural importance are destroyed in this period. The Egalians eventually settle down and Litvanians are allowed to speak their language again. In 1636 Litvania became part of a partially sovereign kingdom with Drabantia. Egalia loses control of the nation in 1641, and Litvania is now sovereign under the Wenceslasian Union. In 1721 Litvania peacefully secedes from the WU, and becomes a separate state. In 1722, the first series of meetings of the newly formed Parliament of Litvania take place, writing up and ratifying the First Litvanian Constitution. The First Litvanian Republic was formed, after 5 years of rule by a provisional monarchy. The late 19th century saw the rise of far-right nationalistic movements like the National People's Front, which opposed democratic rule and advocated extreme nationalism in a state ruled by a single leader. These movements took power after the 1918 election, forming Fascist Litvania. During this time, the country saw vast growth militarily and economically, but was engaged in foreign conflicts in support of fascist governments. As a response among the fascists' early opposition, various social-democratic and communist movements organised a coup d'état in April of 1944. Many previous leaders were prosecuted and killed. The Litvanian Socialist Republic was established in May 1945. This state was short-lived. After a series of revolutions and economic failures caused by political incompetence, the regime was overthrown in 1960, with the Second Litvanian Republic being formed. Since then, the country joined the AN in TBD, and has participated in many globalised economic and social unions.
Litvania has a high income advanced economy, an increasing and high HDI, with a very high standard of living, and performs well in civil liberties, human rights, press freedom, internet freedom, democratic governance and peacefulness indexes. Litvania has a free market economy, and citizens are provided with free healthcare, free education and the right to economic activities.

Main Article: Etymology of Litvania
Where exactly the name Litvanian comes from in Ingerish is unknown, however is believed to be a simple transliteration from the Litvanian name of the peoples. Historians have done little research as to where the name comes from in the Litvanian language, but have come to a reasonable conclusion that it comes from the Proto-Syrillangan word for "peoples", lid. Variations of this name were first used by the Drabantians, as Lidvane, Lidvanie or Lidvaně. Surians also used the Ludvanye, Lydvanye or Lydvane names. The Litvanians themselves apparently later changed the d to a t for an unknown reason, believed to be under Egailian influence, who called them the Litvins.

The Litvanian landscape is noted for being primarily mountainous and hilly. The tallest mountain range in the country are the Micheny Mountains. They extend in a south-north direction along the center-west of the country, along with their subsidiary ranges, the Vesníky, Borovníky and Širava mountain ranges. The largest fertile lowland is the Central Litvanian Plain which extends almost 30km from the banks of the Bráh river. Forests cover over 45% of Litvanian land.

It is located about 9km from the the city center. The current runways support all types of commonly used passenger, military and general aviation flights.

The Port of Loravia is one of 3 international ports, but is the only international river port in the country. It gives Litvania access to international waters, and even the Great Rift Sound through the river Ina. Tourism boats operate from the port to give tours of the northern part of the river. There are no bridges over the river below Loravia's port entrance. All crossing must be made using tunnels.
Due to Litvania's mountainous terrain, there is a number of resources that have been known to exist since antiquity.
