About Lukurian Nachagų́ng!
Thank you for taking time to check out the Lukurian language, my fourth conlang attempt (third on CWS). But it's still probably terrible considering how new I am to conlanging... Oh well, I'll leave that up to you.

Lukurian is the national language of the State of Lukuria. About 21,000,000 people worldwide speak Lukurian as their mother tongue, of which 18,000,000 live in Lukuria.

NOTE 1: A macron above a consonant means that the consonant is ejective. If, in a digraph, the first letter has a macron, the sound represented by the whole digraph is ejective.

NOTE 2: An acute accent diacritic above a vowel means that the vowel should be pronounced with a high tone. Lukurian has just two phonemic tones, but using the correct tone is crucial and is the difference between words such as kur (wet) and kúr (peace).

I tried to make Lukurian analytical, but there is a bit of affixation. I'm not very good with analytical conlangs but I gave it a go...

Lukurian is a little too weird for my idiotic 14 year old self to speak properly...
