Lessinischland within Thuringia

Läßinischland is an autonomous republic within Thuringia. Most of the inhabitants are Läßinischers. The main languages are German and Lessinu(also spelt Läßin, Läßinu, and Leßinu). Lessinu is a minority language, spoken only by two thousand or so people(1999 census). However, the nationalist Lesinix Nacional Partae(LNP) would advocate mandatory teaching in schools within Läßinischland.

Lessinischland is named after the inhabitants(Läßinischers), who are supposed by themselves the descendants of Christians fleeing persecution by Domitian. In fact, this idea is greatly controversial among linguists, who believe that their language is far too progressive for this to be true.
