The Deltans share a common history with its northern Buran neighbours. Deltannia is a nation known for its long history, backed by a powerful navy. Its people have long since been regarded as revolutionaries, looking towards the future with open arms, prepared to do their duty when called upon.
During the 1900s, the Deltannian Federation was annexed by the then expanding Volsci Republic. The Sabellic language then replaced the Deltan language, and as a result, only older generations understand it, creating a communication barrier with the younger generations. The nation was able to establish self-proclaimed independence during the internal Volscian power struggle of 1959.
