The Republic of Destynia, more commonly known as Destynia, is a Confederate Constitutional Republic comprising of twenty-six confederacies and one overseas territory. Its capital city is Servors, which is also its largest city, and the current Head of State is Superintendent Paul Meyer of the Conventional Party. English is the official language, although many do not speak it, instead speaking the three regional languages: French, Denoric and Welsh. The current constitution of Destynia was brought into effect in 1831 by William Bradner, the first Superintendent, although the state of Destynia had existed previously under various guises.

Etymology and Terminology

The name Destynia has been used to name the area now occupied by the Republic of Destynia since 970, when the ruling Yoku invaders were overthrown by natives. However, this name was also used by an older kingdom, Destinia, which existed at the time of the Yoku invasions of the 860s, but was defeated. It is believed that this name was derived from the Dastan Empire, which ruled the area until around 20 AD, although this is often refuted by many historians. The other possibility is that Destynia derives from the ancient Denoric word meaning 'fate', 'distyne'.
