About Likisani Likisani/Baasa National is the official language of the Republic of Likisan, an island nation in Asia. It is a likiaic language much like Korat, Bæu and Melanggi although it has heavy Portuguese influence that the others lack. Some have described Likisani as a conlang as much of its vocabulary and grammar is in fact a mix of differing dialects spoken by ethnic likisanis in Likisan. The man who published the first Likisani dictionary was called Rin Yesyu and he did so in 1861
