Sometime during the 6th century, the Wilmar tribes living in areas that today are Sohneburg, undertook large scale expeditions to the east. A number of these people ended up in the mountainous region that today is Lüttenberg. After the discovery of different metals in the mountains, a large number of the Wilmar people migrated to these new areas. Those who stayed behind later became the Sohneburgers.
Lüttenberg, historically rivalling Agivaea, has remained largely neutral in international arguments for the past few decades. The easily defendable geographic location of the country has allowed Lüttenberg to focus on economy and science, while maintaining a well trained but small military force. The largest income of Lüttenberg is without doubt the extensive mining of iron, copper, bauxite and gold. This, especially after the industrialisation, has given an enormous boost to Lüttenbergian economy, which in turn has favoured many scientific breakthroughs.
The military of Lüttenberg is mostly focused on mountain infantry. Fortification lines have been incorporated into the national military doctrine, counting on superior firepower and easily defendable mountain regions to overwhelm any potential enemies. While Lüttenberg does maintain a navy, it mostly functions as a token defence force rather than a serious threat to a larger fleet. The short coastline is protected by coastal batteries, which would, in case of an hostile amphibious assault, also provide support for the navy.
Lüttenberg is culturally Christian, however only a small portion of the population are devout followers of any religion. The industrialisation and scientific advancements have turned people apathetic towards religion as a whole.
After the Cysien war there was an increase in nationalist movements which never gathered the following to establish a one-party state, but are nevertheless prevalent in the Lüttenberg government to this day.
