The History of the Lanese Confederation spans from the settlement of humans on the Upper Alessian Plain in 8400 BNC to present day, making it one of the oldest surviving cultures on Elysia. It was around 6500 BNC that the region of Laneum was culturally accepted as a region and shared similar values as a people, setting the time of formation for the forerunners of modern Lana as around 2100 years from 8400 to 6500 BNC. The foundation of the Lanean Kingdom in 3867 BNC formally established the region of Lana and is widely accepted as the absolute forerunner to modern day Lana and the sociopolitical structure of the continent of Laneum. With the Lanean annexation of Jespana in 3823 BNC and the foundation of the Lanean Empire in 2988 BNC, the modern day state of Lana's borders were formally conceived in a single nation.
Around the year 8400 BNC is when humans settled from the south in the region of the Upper Alessian Plain. Two other groups from the south, believed to be the proto-Gnonalese and the proto-Jespanani, continued on from the Upper Alessian Plain in different directions, one west and one north. The early settlers on the Upper Alessian Plain spoke a very early form of proto-Lanean and were hunter-gatherers with simple tools made of wood and stone. The settlers organized themselves into tribes, and quickly took up responsibilities within those tribes. The tribes were largely nomadic, though some tribes built villages of mud huts which were very much stable villages. It is believed in the year 8230 BNC that all of the tribes of the Upper Alessian Plain had settled into permanent villages by this time. Agricultural practices also became common among the villages around 8050 BNC, allowing for a wide variety of crafts and positions to form among the people. Around 7900 BNC did some villages unite into singular nation-states with a limited form of government in which the strongest warriors met in a council to rule the nation. These early nation-state governments are believed to be the roots of representative democracy, as the warriors would meet in councils and vote on decisions to rule the nation.
