Lagash (Lagashi & Hebrew: לאגאסה) is a sovereign state in Northern Illypnia. It is bordered by Triphylia to the north, Kandar to the south, Katpatuka to the east, and surrounds the Free City of Harsalem. It is the only Illypnian country to have a border with a Kaftian country, Triphylia, and the only country alongside the latter to border the Mesogean Sea and the Kendriyan Ocean.

With an area of 304,218 km² (117,459.23 sq mi), Lagash is the ??th largest country in Northern Illypnia, the ??th largest country in the Mesogean Cooperation Organization, and the ??th largest country in the Illypnian continent. By population, Lagash is the ??th largest in Illypnia and the ??th in the Mesogean Cooperation Organization. Lagash's capital and largest city is Marqash; other major urban areas include Barsip, Hadar, Ninevi, Kanesh and Ladiki.

Etymology

History

Ancient Lagash

Archaeologists have shown that Lagash hosted one of the oldest civilizations in the Ancient Lagash, one of the oldest peoples of antiquity. U/C

Lagash was occupied successively by the "Canaanites", "Phoenicians" (?), "Hebrews", Vasari, Aetolians, Matinians, Arberians, Parani, and by the Crusaders and the Kandari. According to archaeological findings, Lagash is the place where the first forms of urbanization would have emerged.

U/C ANTIQUITY, AND STUFF

Middle Ages

The region is then invaded by the Parani who brought Islam to the country. Towards the year 912, the JEWISH DYNASTY imposes itself in Lagash, and the independence of the country is then recognized as the Parani struggle to conquer the Vasari. At the time, Marqash has a population surpassing that of Illpynian metropolises like Ampuria, Capua or Koblenz, the city becomes the cultural, religious and economic center of the Eastern Mesogean.

At the beginning of the 11th century, the territory was gradually seized by waves of TURKOMENS from Vasaras. The first of these Salic dynasties established was the TURKOMENS, who entered Lagash by 1047. They were eventually ousted by the dawn of the 12th century, and faced pressure from the north in the form of the Jarinian Empire. Lagash was then the subject of the crusades by Christian powers with Pope ??? calling for the recapture of the holy land. By the late 13th century, Lagash was fractured into several smaller states, including Muslim states, Christian states and Jewish states. The mid-14th-century Red Death killed about 40% of the country's population.

Lagash's new religious heterogeneity damaged its civil society and economic institutions. The weakening of the economic system combined with the effects of plague left Lagash vulnerable to foreign invasion. The country was conquered by the Kandari in 1468, after which it was divided into several provinces of the Kandari Empire. Dinaric traders meanwhile took over Lagashi trade with Fosia.

Early modern period

Late modern period

1800s

First Aliyah (1882–1903)

Between 1882 and 1903, approximately 125–150,000 Jews immigrated to Kandari Zion, joining the pre-existing Jewish population which in 1880 numbered around 55,000. The Jews immigrating arrived in groups that had been assembled, or recruited. Most of these groups had been arranged in the areas of the Dinarides in the 1880s. The migration of Jews from Varkana correlates with the January Revolution and the establishment of Socialist Varkana, with about 15 percent of Varkan Jews emigrating from Varkana to Zion.

Second Aliyah (1904–1915)

Between 1904 and 1915, 250–300,000 Jews immigrated to Kandari Zion. The vast majority came from the Mesogean Basin, in particular from the Near East. Jews from other countries in the Mesogean such as Burawa and Orma also joined. During this period, some of the underpinnings of an independent nation-state arose: Hebrew, the ancient national language, was revived as a spoken language; newspapers and literature written in Hebrew were published; political parties and workers organizations were established.

Third Aliyah (1919–1927)

Between 1924 and 1929, 400–500,000 Jews arrived, many as a result of increasing anti-semitism throughout Illypnia and the Vasari Civil War. The vast majority of Jewish immigrants arrived from Illypnia mostly from the Echian Empire, Vasaras and Volisania, but about 25% came from Kaftia, mostly Burawa and Linakia.

Fourth Aliyah and State of Zion (1928–1934)

Between 1928 and 1934, with the rise of Fascism in Illypnia, a new wave of around 1,000,000 immigrants arrived. The Fourth Aliyah was again driven almost entirely from Illypnia, mostly from Central and Western Illypnia (particularly from Bayara, Breisland, Hersatia, Lusatia, Nabia, and Sarta), but also from the Dinarides.

Great Adonian War and Independence (1934–1938)

Due to the outbreak of the Great Adonian War, restrictions on immigration were put in place by the Kandari authorities. U/C


Republic of Lagash

On DATE 1948, Lagash became a charter member of the Adonian Community. In the following year, the first multiparty elections were held which elected Zionist Party's DUDE as the first President of Lagash. The Secular Party established by DUDE won the 1952, 1956 and 1960 general elections and stayed in power for a decade, with DUDE as the Prime Minister and DUDE as the President. U/C

Languages

The official language of Lagash is Lagashi, which also acts as a lingua franca. Hebrew is officially a national language, although it is mostly used for religious purposes. Parani and Kandari are also recognized regional languages in PARANI REGION and KANDARI REGION respectively. As a country of immigrants, many languages can be heard on the streets. Due to mass immigration from the Dinarides, Aetolian, Krivuli and Varkan are widely spoken. Varkan Jews were among the first Jews to return to Zion, now representing 14% of the total population. Yiddish is spoken by around TBD Lagashis, mostly originating from Breisland and Wiseland.

According to the 2016 census, 47% of Lagashis report Lagashi as their native language, Yiddish 11%, Krivuli/Varkan 9%, Hebrew 9%, Parani 8%, Aetolian 4%, Kandari 3%, Volisanian 2%, Taneti 2%, and 5% other languages.

Religion

As of 2016, the Adonian Community estimates the following: Jewish 74% (41.3% Hiloni, 21.2% Masorti, 8% Dati, 3.5% Haredi), Christian 12.8% (10.8% "Maronites", 2% Petran Catholic), Muslim 12.5% (6% Shia Islam, 4% Sunni Islam, 2.5% Ibadi Islam), Armazist 3.3% (2.9% Paradosian, 0.4% other Armazists), Samaritan 2.4%, and very small numbers of Kejawen, Buddhists, Hindus and atheists.
