Lectern of United Kencari Peoples

The 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.
