The name Syoranka comes from Literary Pringish syoarangka, word meaning lotus (from Proto-Pringian scjârjanxkkhan, via Classical Piringish scjâranxkah). The lotus is in Varkanic culture a traditional symbol of peace and prosperity, and the country was thus named after the hopes of its people to build a brighter future.
The earliest settlements found date from Prehistoric times. The arrival of Varkanic peoples to Syoranka is dated between 13000 and 14000 BCE. They were divided into three major tribes: Fringian, Pringic and Henic. By 2400 BCE, these tribes had permanently settled in different parts of Syoranka and were then at war. In 1780 BCE, Heniya was annexed by the Fringian Empire. The Fringian Empire lasted until 910 BCE at the Battle of Tirahawa, when the Piringic tribes triumphed over Fringia. This marked the downfall of the Fringian Empire, and the beginning of the unified Classical Piringian monarchy, and self-proclamed Piringian Empire. From there on, Piringia remained very much isolated, taking part only in local conflicts such as their invasion of the Dragon Sea Islands, until then an independant Kingdom. As Antiquity drew to its end, in 658 BCE they entered into contact with Dhwer, whence followed the introduction of commercial slavery. In the early 15th century, the Terminian Empire came into contact with the Piringian Empire, which was subsequently renamed the Kingdom of Piringia, creating trading posts along and converting the vast majority of the Piringian population to Pashaism. The country remains generally stable during the following centuries until the early 21st century, which is met with growing dissent towards the absolute monarchy, culminating on November 10, 2014 with the March on Priqaya, which led to the overthrow and public execution of the King Haqak Tiyam and the proclamation of the People's Republic of Syoranka by the Syorankan Kuulist Popular Party, date which is now celebrated as the National Day of Syoranka.
Science and technology
The largest ethnic group in Syoranka are the Piringians. However, there are still large populations of Berkenes, Fringians and Draconic Islanders, who have mixed partially with an also substantial population of Terminian descent. The main foreign groups in Syoranka are from neighbouring nations of Uzil and Danshapu.
The official language of the Republic is constitutionally defined as Syorankan. It was constructed following movements from the parliament to define a single, national language, as previously all regional languages had coöfficial status: Berkene, Fringian, Modern Piringish, and Piringian Creole - these four languages now have official status in their respective regions.
