The Republic of Western Hochland is a federal parliamentary republic located in the central Longerath continent. It became independent after the split-up of Dascunya in December 316.

History[]

For pre-independence history see History of Dascunya

The Republic of Western Hochland was established in December 316 at the Finnholm Negotiations. Seth Barbosa led the negotiations on behalf of the Dascunyan Hochlandic factions and in 315 Barbosa was invited to form a government for the new Western Hochland state. The newly founded Hochlandic state was heralded as a huge moment for Hochlandic peoples across Longerath, with many calling for a Greater Hochland to be formed with territory from northern Angliya and southern Feniz.

Barbosa's newly founded government under the Hochlandic Peoples Party established the nations new capital in the city of Amsterhaven and the nations first election was scheduled to be held in January 320. Western Hochland became a founding member of the Central Longerath Union in 316.
