Serran is a constructed language spoken primarily in the Kingdom of Sierra. Approximately 5 million speak Serran worldwide, with 95% of the speakers living in Sierra. It was created in 1923 in an attempt to overcome language barriers and replace English in hopes of creating a purely Sierran language (hence the name, Serran Langana which literally translates into "Sierran Language") to complement Sierra's new culture. The goals of Serran proponents were never realized as most Sierrans found it unnecessary in learning a new language and claimed that it would be confusing to both natives and foreigners. The language has been preserved to the present-day and is taught in most higher education classes. Revived proposals to promote the use and study of the Serran language have appeared and has been taken into consideration by members of the Parliament.

Being a constructed language, it is an isolated language in its own right, but draws heavily from Latin and English.
