The kingdom of Slovakia existed until 1526, when it was conquered by Rumelian Turks. Since then, Slovaks in the highlands continued to fight the enemy.
The kingdom was restored in 1694, when the Rumelians were expelled.
Slovakia is divided into župas (Counties).
In addition, there are three relatively autonomous regions:
The largest minority is the Ruthenian, living in Carpathian Ruthia and adjacent regions in OTL Prešov county. Along with their brethren in neighbouring Poland, they enjoy a relativelly high degree of autonomy.
The Germany are present in OTL Burgenland, Moravia and Spiš county.They form some 3% of the population.
The Hungarians are far less present than in OTL. They live near the borders of Hungary.
The Moravians and Slovyaks are ethnicities considered as integral part of the Slovak nation by the Slovak nationalists, and often are called as regional identities.
