Lectern of United Kencari Peoples (LUKP) is one of the three
larger successor states of the Republic of Bowdani, the other two
being the Republic of Flovaigne and the Free States of Tak. The LUKP
was created on 16 October 316, the day that Bowdani was officially
dissolved. Consisting of large areas between the Cislendian Ocean
and Lake Pearyt, the country can be theoretically described as a
federative republic with a strong central command, although the
latter has yet to be proven. Apart from an Ingallish elite, the
Kencari form the largest ethnic minority group in the LUKP. The
proposed constitution of the country saw a large increase of Kencari
influence in state matters, but this is however opposed by some
conservative Ingallish factions.
