Lhavres (Kavrinian: Lhavrëšnhë [ʟɑvrəʃŋə]), officially the Federal Republic of Lhavres, is a country located in Upper Boroso, occupying much of the continent's geographic northwest region. It neighbors Dhwer to its east. The nation is multispecies in makeup and was built on the systems and ideals set in place by the native avian Kavrinhäk peoples, who founded the state of Kavrinia back in 227 CE. Due to human migration and integration however, the population is 47% human and 41% Kavrinh, with the remaining 12% being made up of other species from around Sahar (the largest of these minority populations being Fals and Astalvi). The nation is known for having several popular tourist destinations found throughout the entire country.

The native name, Lhavrëšnhë, which becomes Lhavres in anglicization for convenience, comes from Kavrinian and means "land of Lhavs". The Lhavs were a Konaaczinh tribe that formed an ancient empire in what is now western Lhavres, known as the Lhav Empire. The empire fell sometime around 50 CE but the region became united again less than two centuries later by the Lhavs's sister tribe, the Kavs (whose name gave us the current common name for the Kavrinhäk), who brought all known inhabited lands in the region under one banner through charisma and promises of prosperity. After annexation of Setyalmi in 1844, the nation chose "Lhavrëšnhë" "land of Lhavs" as its name.
The history of Lhavres is tightly linked with the history of the Kav species, the history of humans on Boroso, and the history of Borosan civilization. The nation is widely thought to contain the urheimat of the Kavs, somewhere within the state of Czucz. In 1959, an archeological dig led by famed Barradiwan archeologist Marín Balásk in the region of Thewer led to the discovery of ancient etchings and artifacts that seemed to point to the area being inhabited by a developed Kav civilization thousands of years before the more widely known Thewer civilization; however, these findings are the subject of much debate, as this would mean Kavs had a civilization long before humans did.
The nation's geography is diverse, featuring vast rainforests, wetlands, savannas, steppes, and desert.

Largest cities in Lhavres
An interesting thing to note is that Lhavres's four largest cities, all ahead of the national capital in population and size, were all founded several thousands of years ago and historically used as capitals for various massive and influential polities: Yaageqyë was the capital of Ramekia, Konaacza was the capital of Kavrinia, Czuczlhayaa was the capital of the Czucz Empire, and Ǧuun was the capital of the Setyal Empire.
Lhavres is the largest multispecies nation on the planet. No one species makes up a true majority of the population. With a total nonhuman population of 138,666,647, Lhavres has the second largest nonhuman population of any country on Sahar, behind only the Fals Empire.
Lhavres's total population of 262,085,250 consists of:
- 123,418,603 Humans (47.1%)
- 108,482,594 Kavs (41.4%)
- 24,893,349 Fals (9.5%)
- 2,932,234 Astalvi (1.11%)
- 2,358,317 Dalar (0.89%)
- 153 Vodholk (0.00006%)
This means Lhavres has the largest Kav population, the second largest Fals and Astalvi populations, the third largest Dalar population, and the fourth largest human population of any country on Sahar.
