The Musanian lands, often simply called "Musograd", were originally settled by Balanda tribes. Historic evidence of these tocharic / germanic speaking nomadic tribes appears about 1500 years b.p.. The Balanda languages today are used mostly in the Balanda and Capricornian back country. Slavic speaking Musan tribes settled the central plains in the 11th century. At about the same time, Murwillumbah was settled by Jewish traders, which were largely islamized in the 13th century during the Southern Invasions, forming the unique Murwillian culture in the following centuries.

The Musogradian language developed out of the interaction between the Musan (slavic), Balanda (tocharic) and Murwillian (germano-semitic) languages. It used to be written in Cyrillic letters, but today in most regions of the Federation, Latin letters are used. The Dershowo Musograd uses both types of letters officially. The English language was adopted by the multiethnic trading port of Kosnice in the late 14th century before it came under the rule of the Musogradian Kingdom. Today it has spread to the Thylacinian coast and is also widely used in other provinces. It is the sole official language in the Republic of Capricornia, which, after leaving the Federation of Musograd in 2006, has become co-founder of the Federated Micronations. Due to the current political situation, several versions of historic events may exist. Here, the most generally recognized version will be given. Chronological History:
