The first traces of hominid migration into modern Lyncanestria occurred approximately 1.8 million years ago as early hunter-gatherer societies moved from Scipia and Ochran. Throughout prehistoric times the Lyncanestrian region was harsher, and affected by numerous glacial eras. Archaeologists have found tools dating from around 70,000 B.C.E. indicating specialization. The Gémus mountains are home to numerous decorated caves dating to the upper Paleolithic era. By 6,000 B.C.E., the peoples of the Lyncanestrian basin had become sedentary and began agricultural civilization.
Lyncanestrian antiquity is characterized by numerous Audonic chieftains vying for regional supremacy. In the X century, Latin military presence began to subjugate and annex Lyncanestria into their empire.
Independence and modernization
Lyncanestria is a parliamentary democracy where legislative authority is vested in the Imperial Diet, seated in Villeneuve. The Diet is a bicameral body, comprising the lower Chamber of Deputies with 641 seats, elected by popular vote every five years; and the upper Federal Council with 115 seats, whose members are appointed by the legislatures of the states which they represent for three year terms. The representative government operates in conjunction with a constitutional monarch, who is is elected by the Federal Council and serves for life. The power of the monarch is mostly ceremonial, and primarily serves as a figurehead for national unity. Executive power is wielded chiefly by the Prime Minister and his Council.
Lyncanestria uses a federal system of government.
Law and justice
International diplomacy is the responsibility of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Lyncanestria maintains a working embassy in all Belisarian countries, as well as in many other countries abroad. In the twenty-first century, Lynacnestrian foreign policy has been focused on strengthening its diplomatic and economic relations to the Belisarian Community, of which Lyncanestria is a founding member. Since 1966, Lyncanestria has been a member of the Forum of Nations.
Lyncanestria's population was 63,854,527 in the 2015 national census. In recent years, natural population growth has decreased, though the birth rate remains positive. The fertility rate in Lyncanestria in 2016 was 1.89. Today, most population change is due to immigration. As of 2019, the population is estimated at 67.2 million.
Ethnically, most Lyncanestrians are of Audonic-Celtic origin, with admixture of Italic and Germanic groups going back to the early second and third centuries C.E. Immigration in recent years has led to the creation of a more multicultural society, as the percentage of people who are foreign-born or have foreign-born parents has seen a steady rise.
