Place & SpeakersTheodian is spoken in Theodia.
Species Human/humanoid
About Theodian Theodian is the primary official language of the Technocratic Republic of Theodia. It is a micronational engelang/explang (a type of constructed language, or 'conlang'). It is being designed by linguist Miles Bradley Huff (known in the micronational sphere as Swena), and is a formal language that will eventually -- once the language is operational -- be governed by the Theodian Jury of Linguistics. Informal varieties are not stigmatized; the formal variety exists mainly to mitigate the communicational difficulties posed by linguistic change-over-time and dialectal variation, especially when it comes to formal documents.
