Lhaqinga (Language: Country [IPA]), officially the Republic of Lhaqinga, is a country located in Eastern Alcia on the banks of the Saru Sea. It is bordered by the Holy Xhovian Empire to the north and northwest, and is mostly surrounded by unclaimed land. Lhaqinga is descendant from East Xhovian peoples that established civilization on the [UNAMMED] estuary during the Bronze Age. When contact was made with the Holy Xhovian Empire during the Middle Ages, the Imperial government had decided to keep the kingdom independent due to them seeing the Lhaqingic as "civilized peoples". Lhaqinga reformed its government in the 1950s to become a parliamentary republic, with some elements of socialism.

Today, Lhaqinga enjoys a high standard of living, and is known as being one of the first nations in Sahar to become carbon neutral. As such, there is barely any pollution in the area, and alternative energies are one of its main industries. It also maintains close relations with the Holy Xhovian Empire, and tries to maintain friendly relations with other nations in Sahar.

Etymology

The origin of the name Lhaqinga is disputed, but it is believed to have come from an ancient name for the [UNNAMED] estuary. Other sources state that it may have been a name given to the region by the Holy Xhovian Empire during the Middle Ages.

History

Prehistoric Xhovians

The first inhabitants of modern-day Lhaqinga are believed to have been the ancestors of the modern Xhovian peoples. They are believed to have migrated from the Saru Sea and spread out across Alcia. These peoples are believed to have spoken Proto-Xhovian, the common ancestor of all modern Xhovian languages. The Ancestral East Xhovians ended up staying on the Saru Coast while the remainder migrated inland. Some would settle in what is now Lhaqinga, while others would migrate up the coast or to the northwest. These peoples are believed to have spoken a dialect of Proto-Xhovian that would eventually evolve into the East Xhovian languages. Here, in the [UNAMMED] estuary, the ancestral peoples of the region settled down and began to practice agriculture.

Bronze Age

When the Alcian Bronze Age began, modern-day Lhaqinga was divided into several distinct kingdoms and city states situated around the [UNAMMED] estuary. At this point, most of the income in these states came from trade.
