Meridian is the official language of the Meridian Consul, spoken as a primary language by almost all of its population.

The Meridian language, also known as Meridian, dates back thousands of years to the earliest Atmonsian manuscripts. Early variants were used across Monsmanu hundreds of years before the founding of Meridian, leading to diverse literature. Over the past several millennia the Meridian language has undergone several reforms and changes, giving birth to dialects and different styles of writing.

The most common variant that Meridians speak and write classical Meridian, and is the most widely distributed. Ecclesiastical is used primarily within religious orders and justice. Reformed is spoken in the west among a small number of citizens. Lower is used very sparingly for shorthand by a very space number of the population.
