This article is a list of the official languages of Arithia, at both the national and subnational levels.

The national language of Arithia is Arithide, and was formally adopted as the official and working language of the Arithian Republic with the drafting of the republican constitution in 1886 CIE. At the federal level, it is the only official language, but devolution in 1979 CIE provided room for other languages to attain official recognition at the provincial and regional level. Where not listed, the province is to be assumed to have only Arithide as its official language, as federally.

In 1986 CIE, after much acrimony in the municipal parliaments, the municipalities of Lazaea and Isphaea successively passed bills mandating the sole use of Arithide in all official matters, state offices and education, on the basis of efficiency, after the cities' administrations were overwhelmed with petitions from numerous immigrant groups demanding official recognition for their languages.




The Nisaean provincial parliament passed, in 1981 CIE, by a comfortable majority of 61%-31%-8%, a law making the Heristide language an official language of the province in recognition of the substantial Heristian minority within its borders.


In Odomantaea, a referendum was held alongside the 1980 provincial legislative elections determining whether or not to make Herallian an official language of the province, passing with more than 70% of the populace voting for.



Ebentaea adopted Corithide as a second official language in 1984 CIE in its southern counties where the Corith minority was prevalent, but in a 1996 CIE provincial law amendment, extended the official status of Corithide across the whole province.




Tannaea's vociferous revivalist movement successfully pushed for the institution of the Tannaean language as an official language of the province in 1984 CIE, while education had already begun in Tannaean approximately three years earlier.
