Before the arrival of Indians onto Kiton, the natives who immigrated from pre-Yamato Japan practiced their indigenous beliefs and lived in clans. There was no united government or single state on the island. Different tribes spoke different languages, and it was said, albeit exaggeratively, that each household spoke its own language.
When Indians arrived in Kiton from the 7th century BCE, they had brought Vedic Sanskrit, pre-Hindu Vedic religion and Indian rituals and statecraft. The clans began to slowly come together to form kingdoms, and they began to adopt the court languages as their own. As languages began to die out, there were left a handful of languages on the island, which remain to this day. The Kitonese south was the most heavily Indianized, while in the north people still lived in loose tribal confederations. This political system of loose conglomeration would be the basis of the modern Kitonese ideology of confederalism.
In the 2nd century CE, Christianity had spread into Kiton, where it remained popular in the east and began to take on an indigenous Keika character, known as Saihan Orthodox Christianity. The tribes which adhered to Christianity named themselves Saihans and joined the Sarnya Saihana confederacy, occupying the areas of modern Cholchei, Arunaha and Hwassu. Sarnya Saihana was the biggest polity in Kiton, but did not dominate the island. It largely kept to itself in the mountainous northeast, largely isolated by the Wamuatikiri mountains.
The Sakans were a tribe who emerged from the Hwakahan who practiced Kithanovedism, who lived in the kingdom of Rajola. They were the dominant power on Kiton from the 5th century CE till the 20th century. The empire had vassal polities all over the island and claimed the name Kiton for themselves. The city of Arjunanagara was the first Kitonese capital.
The King of Kha Lohi was overthrown by Kilaitan Sasahwahan, who became the warlord of Kha Lohi. States who overthrew their kings joined him as the Kaika Confederacy, with its first capital at Kuman Matha. The Kaika Confederacy went to war with the Sakanese Crown, defeated its king with popular support in 1932. Sasahwahan adopted his nom de guerre, Ashuyin Kajekurun as his new name and became the first President of a peaceful, federal and free Kiton.
A dialect of Vedic Sanskrit imported during the Indic Age, the language known as Kithanawaidika ("Vedic speech of the land of Ki") was esteemed throughout Kiton when it became the court language of the Sakan Empire and was used by the upper classes. It became liturgical langauge of Saihan Christianity, and was the language of the Kithanic Bible, or Selamagrantha. The Standardization Act (1941) designated the language as the national language of Kiton and renamed it Kitonese. Kitonese is spoken in professional situations, such as in the office; in federal media, in education and between unacquainted people. However, it is not a home language, as native languages tend to be spoken among family and friends.
The Kaika Confederacy is consists of 10 states (negara), 2 federal cities (rājanegara) and the capital city, Kota Sri Nakanejra, which is the seat of the federal government.
