The Deric States, commonly referred to as Latium also sometimes called the Deric Confederation and officially the Confederation of the Estates and Principalities of Latium is a confederation of 10 Derian countries in eastern Levantia. It is comprised of the entire former territory of the Kingdom of Latium excepting Burgundie. The Confederation was established in the aftermath of the Great War, and all 10 states are part of the Levantine Union.
The Deric States is considered the legal successor or the Kingdom of Latium, though its direct predecessor is the Derian National Congress, groups of liberals and moderate nationalists and several states in Latium who confederated following the end of the Deric Republic. The Deric Confederation has been a member of the Levantine Union since its inception. Many scholars and observers have noted that the function of the Deric Confederation has been increasingly subsumed into that of the Levantine Union, and some have called for the absorption of the Confederation into the Union.
The Presidency of the Deric States - a largely ceremonial position that entitles presiding over the meetings of the Deric States and is nominally head of state - is held ex officio by the Archbishop of Corcra. Previously, the Archbishop served as ex officio arch-chancellor and vicar for the Kingdom of Latium, and the special relationship between the Archbishop and the Deric community was maintained following the dissolution of the Kingdom with the end of the Holy Levantine Empire.
The full name of the Deric States is the Confederation of the Estates and Principalities of Latium, sometimes also shortened to Latium. Things relating to the Deric States are called Deric while its people are referred to as Derian, but are also sometimes referred to as Conine after Emperor Conchobar I of the Holy Levantine Empire in a similar fashion to Urcea's Julian.
