Litvania (Litvanian: Litvensko, officially Litvanian Republic, Litvenská republika) is a lakeside country in North Central Uletha. It is bordered by Rodana to the west, Krankheit to the northwest, Fressland to the north, Malavnia to the northeast, and Drabantia to the west. Litvanias territory spans 22,700km2, and is mostly mountainous. Litvanias 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 to protect against invasion from the west. After the fall of Gran Loravia Litvania became part of the Egalian Empire[citation needed] . The Empire later fell to an invasion by Drabantia, and they aquired Litvania as a protectorate of the Drabantian Crownlands. The centuries after 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 seperate state. In 1722, the first series of meetings of the newly formed Parliament of Litvania take place, writing up and ratifiying the Litvanian Constitution. Later, the region system is established, originally with TBA regions. In TBA the first railways are built. By TBA, the country joined the Assembly of Nations, and later the Ulethan Cultural Alliance.[3]

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 of Litvania are provided with free healthcare, free education and the right to economic activity.

Etymology

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 studies as to where the name comes from in the Litvanian language, but have come to a 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.
