The Anglish is taught as a second language in all secondary schools in Baydor with Anglish fluency being the highest in the world (for country who speak it as a second language) around 90% of the population can fluently speak Anglish as a second language and as a result the Dolfik communities have felt free to speak their first language how ever this started to stop in the 70's ND 80's due to anti-dolfik terrorist.
Baydorian is part of the Mlorbic language family however it is only distantly related to other Mlorbic languages and is better described as a lorbic language. Baydorian is distinctive from Anglish and Anderian. The proto lorbic was one of the first written languages in kerbin with the first record written arounds being around 2000bc, despite lasting a long time the lorbic language in Andolia would began to change over the centuries from its Mlorbic origins due to being disconnected from the other continent as well as influence from the Dolfik language family. By 800Bc thanks to Dolfik migrations, the proto lorbic language died out and was replaced with the old-lorbic language. in the 400Ad the fist record's of modern day lorbic otherwise called Old-Baydorian. By the 13th century the Baydorian language had been formed.
Baydor has been historically Christian with the first Christian Dutchy emerging around 900 ad after the baptism of Baydor when Duke Musian 1st converted to Christianity. In 2015 a census revelled that 87.1% of the country identifies as Catholic Christian with 2.8% identifying as Pegan, 5.3% being jewish and the rest identifying as atheist or not answering at all. Historically speaking the catholic Church has always been strong in the eastern and northern parts of Baydor ever since the religion was introduced however in the early day's of Christianity.
Before the introduction of Christianity, lorbic tribes practises pagan belief other wise know as "native" religions. Even after the Baptism of Baydor there where still non Christian kingdoms and tribes in Baydor as well as many practitioners of Pegan religions even in the Christian Kingdom of Baydor. This resulted in Pegan revolts happening in the Baydorian kingdom in the 1030's what also showed elements of a peasant uprising against feudalism.
Religious tolerance was an important part of Baydorish culture even though it has has not been a constraint. In 1256 jews were granted unprecedented rights not seen in the rest of andolia. However Baydors tolerance toward the jews was not granted to pagans how Baydor waged holy wars against in the 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th centuries.

Today Baydorian culture is very conservative and up hold's traditional values with popular commitment to limited government.

In the 19th century saw the rise of nationalism with the goal of unifying the Baydorian people what eventually lead to the formation of the Grand dutchy of Baydor. Despite Dolfikland efforts to replace Baydori culture, this period saw a massive back lash to dolfikisation and as a result this became a golden era for Baydorian culture. However By the turn of the 20th century Dolfikland used more aggressive methods to try to replace Baydor's culture and in these effort encouraged lorbic dolfic's artist but many of these artisans where nationalist so continued the Baydorian cultural golden age. Many lorbic baydorian artis and other lorbic members of the cultural elite fled the nation during these lockdowns and continued there work. After the end of Dolfikland's rule. Baydor focus on cultural advancement often took precedence over political and economic activity. These factors have contributed to the versatile nature of Baydorain art. This effort was put temporally stoped when the communist party took power in 1937 but when they where forced to dissolve in 1938 the government continued this cultural effort.
