The State of Illyria [Serbo-Croatian: Ilirija/Илирија] is one of the constituent states of the Danubian Federation [Ger: Die Donauföderation] and the state has a majority of Southern Slavs (Croat, Bosnian, Serb).
With the lack of a strong voice for the South Slavic states of Carniola and Croatia, many thought of the idea to unite these two states to help give the Southern Slavs a stronger voice not only in Congress, but in the entire nation.
In 1862, a referendum came to birth, to unite the two states. It passed and created the state we now know as the state of Illyria, named after the ancient Roman province Illyricum. However, in 1869, Slovenia left Illyria through a referendum and by vote were re-admitted as a state.
