Despite which, the kingdom had collapsed in 1460, with numerous Lotionese states appearing; Such as the Serfdom Council of Yakuvony, the Kingdom of Okhtsk, the Lotionese State, the Principality of Kishinev among others. The Lotionese State entirely relied upon trade with the other Lotioia state's for its economy and agriculture, and found itself at odds with the Serfdom Council of Yakuvony. But later would ally with the Serfdom to rival the expanding Kingdom of Okhtsk on their borders. Some expeditions would occur in the Lotionese State, and to find new trade routes to different nations and discover new lands, and they'd end up finding the Sawtooth people, and brought over Yakuvoniak culture towards the lands.

Eventually, in the 1930s, a massive economic decline would occur, and the nation would experience numerous secession attempts, in what would become known as the "Recession War." Eventually, the war would become a Republic victory in 1945. Reconstruction would last until 1955, until in 1956, where the 3 Day War occurred which became a decisive Republic victory occurred. The nation would continue to build up its military until it got couped in 2005, where the Republic of Yakuvony, a military dictatorship was formed. A civil war would eventually occur in 2007, between the Communists, the Tsarists, and even some Democrats were against the Republic. Eventually, the Republic would win, but later fall to a revolution, and the monarchists seized control of the nation, thus forming the Lotionese Empire.

The Kingdom of Kishinev was a loose set of tribes and numerous other duchies and principalities that were ruled by a single king, with its capital being Kishinev(Nowadays New Kishinev). During the years of 100 BC, there was a massive series of wars between the Kingdom and her neighbors; They were so numerous infact, that they were named the "Wars of the Plain" - As there were numerous wars, and they mainly were fought on the plains. The Kingdom of Kishinev would manage to win most wars, and become slowly more and more larger. The first Kishinev King - Nicknamed the starter of the Lotionese Monarchist movement was Alexander I Vyadimir Luchok. Prior to his rule, the Kingdom was ruled by a series of councils. He'd lead the Kingdom of Kishinev from 106 BC to 45 BC. Under his rule, the establishment of rule by the Luchok dynasty was made apparent, numerous reforms would be made to merge the duchies and principalities within the Kingdom of Kishinev. Eventually this would be successful by 76 BC, and the establishment of a single monarch to rule the throne was made. The Luchok dynasty was now in full power for some time.

In 55 BC, there was the Religious Question, an event in Lotionese history where the Kingdom of Kishinev had to decide what religion the nation was going to follow. Prior to which, it was entirely left undecided, and had it be left to be decided by its principality, and duchies within it. Despite that, due to the simple fact the duchies and principalities no longer existed, a new religion had to be decided. The two most popular religions to choose were Orthodox Christianity, and Sayankovism. But despite which, the new religion was to be decided as Sayankovism in 49 BC. With the death of Alexander I in 45 BC, the new heir to the throne was announced to be Zakryatin Alexander Luchok.

The kingdom to lead the unification of the Lotionese was the Kingdom of Kishinev in 246 BC. Numerous conflicts had occurred between the Kingdom of Kishinev, and numerous other city states and kingdoms. With most of North Western Lotioia under their control, the king of the Kingdom of Kishinev sent a request to the other numerous kingdoms/city states of North Western Lotioia, in the Lotiongrad Conference of 1246, where talks had occurred over the unification of North Western Lotioia, and finally in 1246, the Kingdom of Kishinev and the other city states/kingdoms had agreed to unify into the Lotionese Kingdom.
