Lontinien (White Lontinian: Londin Uls; Blue Lontinian: Löndınstan; Krasnocorian: Лонтинија, Lontinija; Hurmu Norse: Lontinen) is the northern state of Hurmu on the Apollonian continent, by the mouth of the River Glacei. It borders the other Hurmu state of Northern Coria to the south. It is populated by Lontinians (Jawnetka) and people belonging to the Eastern Ulus of the Silver Yak Horde. The Jawnetka are a traditionally peaceful people, unlike their brethren in the Yak Horde. This lifestyle brought the affinity of the Hurmudans and they became friends, allies and brothers ever since. In 1694, the Eastern Ulus of the Silver Yak Horde swore their fealty to the Khan of Lontinien and Lontinien thus assumed that Ulus's territory from the Green.
The name Lontinien is Crandish in origin, and is derived from the old, long-since ruined, city of Londina, one of the few cities of the Jawnetka in pre-historic times.
Lontinien was in its early days confused with Tartary (later known as Eesdeheito), and the two names became synonymous with one another. Their cultures and languages have much similarity, and their histories have interlinked one another through subjugation in Cranda and Stormark.
Lontinien is generally flat, with some cliff formations in the north towards the border to Lac Glacei. Forests are rare, though exist in the far southern regions of the District. The land is steppe-like and generally not well suited for growing crops.
Lontinien's border is in the process of being demarcated and secured. Most of the it, generally, to the west, borders the lawless Green. To the north of Lontinien is Lac Glacei, with a secure and peaceful border. To the south is the border to Çakaristan, also a secure and peaceful border.
Lontinien lies along the southern half of the western bank (right bank) of the River Glacei. Across the river, on the eastern (left bank) is Arbor. As of now, only ferries allow for access between Arbor and Lontinien. There are informal discussions between Hurmu and Arboric diplomats on constructing a crossing between Ghawlama and the outskirts of Al-Kadra.
Ghawlama is the capital city of Lontinien, and the only real port. Ghawlama also is a toll port for access up and down the River Glacei. The largest city in the district, however, is Khojinacinggha. Other important towns of note are Mitrovska and Vadimbaatar.
Lontinien is probably one of the oldest parts of Micras. It used to be a nation of its own before being annected to Cranda (before Menelmacar even existed). Later, the culture of Lontinien merged with that of Tartary and the storyline developed: Apollonian Tartars spoke a Mongolic language (not a Turkic) and placenames reflected that. Tartary has since been reduced to the small part of Lontinien by the River Glacei, but it's city still has a Mongolic name: Ghawlama, "the river-mouth".
- Founded in North Cranda as Londina
- Moved to the island as Lontinien in 6.5.0.
- Crandish–Arminian era
1599–1603: Part of The Dominion
1614: Cheltia collapses, Ghawlama remains under Jingdaoese rule
1627: Jingdao retakes Ghawlama after 12 years in the Green
1628: Gralus (Toketi) collapses. Stormark sets up a Lontinien khanate outside the Ghawlama region (which, expanded, remains under Jingdaoese rule)
1631: Ghawlama is ruined
1632: Jingdao collapses, loses its continental lands, remains on a few islands. Later the same year, Stormark takes Ghawlama from the Green and establishes a government, rebuilds the city, and expands the Lontinien region, which it holds until 1685 when Stormark collapses.
Period in Stormark
- 1689: Lontinien joins the Hurmu Trust Territory, its Khan, Temüjin, becomes co-ruler of Hurmu
- 1690: Lontinien becomes part of the newly restored state of Hurmu.
- 1694: With the Eastern Ulus of the Silver Yak Horde swearing their fealty to the Khan of Lontinien, and thereby their allegiance to the state of Hurmu and the Order of the Holy Lakes, Lontinien's territory expanded to include the territory under the dominance of the Eastern Ulus (centred in Khojinacinggha). As such, Lontinien's population increased by 3.17 million people speaking a Lontinian dialect. Moreover, at the same time, Lontinien expanded to integrate Mitrovska into it, after the population there had asked for Hurmu's aid in pacifying the city and restoring it to order. As such, some 150,000 people of the Corian tongue were added to the population of Lontinien.
Lontinien is a region of Hurmu, so economic fluctuations in Hurmu directly affect the country. Lontinien shows a communist-like economic structure and mainly makes a living on livestock. The influence of the state on animal husbandry is enormous. A significant part of farm animals is still in the hands of private enterprise and collectivization system is applied. The transition to the free market spread rapidly after the expansion of Lontinien, and Ghawlama is seen as the bastion of free trade. In addition, Lontinien has underground resources, it owes this to ancient creatures. Oil was found in parts of Lontinien, but not enough.
Light industry is observable throughout the country, most of which are located in the city centre. Most factories are meat packaging, bacon production, flour mill, textiles, chemicals and cement. Serious industry is monopolized around Ghawlama and Khojinacinggha. Ghawlama is more dynamic and easier to transport than the city of Khojinacinggha, so Ghawama is home to fifty percent of industrial factories, while Khojinacinggha is forty percent.
It makes extensive use of the underground resources in Lontinien. The mines are gold, tin, zinc, iron and boron. With the discovery of iron resources, Lontinien began to progress rapidly in the white goods and automotive business. The country's first domestically produced car, the Marza, will be on the road soon, engineer learners taken to Lac Glacei and Kildare (Shireroth) mastered the car's know-how and, with help from Ghawlama's wealthiest wealthy, Marza Inc. company was founded.
Transportation to Khojinacinggha city is provided directly. You can reach directly by bus or plane. Here, too, it is a city similar to Ghawlama and just as filthy. The city structure of Khojinacinggha is exactly the same as the capital, but a little more organized. The city has expanded along four major roads and the city center continues to get more compact. Khojinacinggha pays attention to both national and popular sports, and many sports facilities can be found, but interest in other popular sports is low, with the exception of basketball and table tennis. Khojinacinggha's entertainment centers are of better quality and there is a gay bar. . There is more interest in international food here and fast food chains prefer this city.
Other cities remain like villages compared to the two big cities. The populations of other cities never exceed 80,000. The fun is too bad the city is mostly made up of civil servants. Other people form villages with tents called Yus and lead a traditional life. They are far from technology and children before the age of three know professional archery and horse riding. In addition, villages are richer in activity. They do animal husbandry naturally.
The Lontinian nation consists of two major languages, White Lontinian (Jawnetka) and Blue Lontinian (Tartar). These languages, although sharing similar names and having co-existed in the Lontinian nation for centuries, are not genetically related at all. Blue Lontinian, historically also known as Tartar, is more closely related to Çakari, Thraci and Hazarese than it is to White Lontinian. Of the ethnic Lontinian nation, three fifths have White Lontinian as their native language, while two fifths have Blue Lontinian.
Thereafter, Krasnocorian and Crandish are large minority languages in Lontinien. Krasnocorian is spoken by approximately 10% of the entire population of Lontinien, but are geographically centred in the Mitrovska area. The main cultural organization for the Krasnocorian population is the Society of Yeshua. Crandish is spoken in pockets in western Lontinien.

All in all, about 50% of the population is White Lontinian, 37% Blue Lontinian, 1% Norse, 3% Crandish, 2% Krasnocorian, 1% Zeedic, and 6% "Other".
Lontinian sports are usually defensive sports. Lontinian people like to play their traditional sports instead of popular sports, the most popular sport in the region is wrestling. Wrestling is very popular in the terrioty, people of the terrioty play many variants of wrestling. But the most played type of wrestling is Khuresh. Khuresh, which has a name that is extremely similar to the Thraci language, is often played in Eastern Lontinien. Another popular sport is archery, a lot of skilled archers emerge from this terrioty. The Lontinian people are a community that loves horseback riding, and almost all Lontinian people know how to ride. In addition, an annual festival called Balaan is held and the Lontinian revelers do not miss this entertainment. Traditional sports are played in this festival and the athletes show their skills. The government built many stadiums for Balaan and other multi-sports.
Football and similar sports are young and less played in this region, football was very popular in the former Krasnocorian lands. There used to be a football club in Mitrovska, the stadium with a capacity of 30,000 is still standing in Mitrovska.
