Background

Dezaking started as a language on Dezaking Island in southern modern-day Rovenia. Three different countries claimed Dezaking Island as theirs, and a language evolved from those three languages called "Deszanika" (Dezaking Language). When Rovenia formed from those three countries, Dezaking was chosen to be the official language, and it was kept when Rovenia became Congaval.
