The Haʞhai or, commonly, Haʞhai, sometimes spelled Hakkhai, and officially the Supreme Ksatminate of the Haʞhai (Classical Haʞhai: Khrsa’hlatär he'Aʞai, IPA: kʀ̥͡sɑɬɑtɑ:r hɜʔɑk'hɑi), is a sovereign state in TBD.

A Note on Chronology:[edit]

Main Article: Haʞhai Calendar.
Please note, this explanatory section may be considered out of character.

The Haʞhai year consists of 365 days divided into twelve months of twenty-eight days, two special months of fourteen days each, and one 'Firsttide' at the start of each year. The years and months are further divided into weeks of seven days, the names of which, from the start to the end of the week, being as follows: Aʈagar ('Tagar's Day'), Aʈirhza̧ ('Kmirhza̧'s Day'), Aʈepttha ('Pttha's Day'), Ha̧ʈ ('Middle Day'), Aʈighrza (Nighrza's Day), Aʈuta ('Zu̧ta's Day'), and finally Aʈaʞan ('Aʞan's Day'). The periods of the Haʞhai calendar are shown below, along with their corresponding Gregorian calendar dates.

The Haʞhai calendar is also divided into several epochs, or ʞanak. The first of these is called the tsoʞaʞanak, or 'epoch of spirits', and begins with the emergence of writing in 967 BCE. Years in this period are affixed with 'tʞ', as in 1070tʞ, the equivalent of 103 CE. The tsoʞaʞanak ended in 1423tʞ (456 CE) with the Ascendance of the Sun, and began the dzaghrzaʞanak, or 'epoch of the people'. Years in this period are affixed with 'dʞ', as in 1412dʞ, the equivalent of 1668 CE.The final epoch, called the mäshkraʞanak, or 'epoch of heavenly light', began in TBD with the end of TBD. Years in this period are affixed with 'mʞ', as in 208mʞ, the equivalent of TBD.

Thus, Tuesday the 22nd of August, 1100 CE, would be rendered officially as Aʈirhza̧, the 4th day of TBD, in the year 644 of the dzaghrzaʞanak. Abbreviated, this would be written Aʈirhza̧, 4/3/644dʞ.

Prehistory[edit]

Main Article: Prehistory of Haʞhai.

Little is known of the prehistory of the Haʞhai prior to the arrival of the Proto-Hakhitic people to the fertile Krhzarzan region of the upper Great Snake river some 40 thousand years ago, however, evidence of earlier human settlement has been found in the form of the enigmatic Tuurdus structures scattered throughout northern and western Haʞhai. These various paleolithic structures, constructed of a variety of black marble found in the Katarpie Mountains and dated to be between 45 and 50 thousand years old, have an unknown purpose, with little other archaeological evidence remaining as to the identity of their builders. Genetic research of modern Hakhitic and the closely related Dsar people seems to suggest the existence of a hypothetical Tuur people who inhabited modern Haʞhai for several thousand years before the arrival of the Hakkhitic people emigrating [south?] from TBD. The exact nature of the Tuur people and what happened that led to their disappearance, however, remains a significant mystery in the prehistoric history of the Haʞhai. Nevertheless, modern archaeology seems to suggest that the ancestors of the modern Haʞhai arrived in the Krhzarzan plains around 43,000 BCE, where evidence of pottery remains and burial mounds suggest they lived a semi-nomadic lifestyle centered around the ecological cycles of the Krhzarzan lake. These remains, many of which have been found surrounding Tuurdus structures, suggest a complex animistic religion in which these earlier monuments played an important religious role.

Around 10,000 BCE concrete settlements of the Haʞhai had been established with limited domestication of animals and agriculture. By around 9,000 BCE complex societies had emerged around the urban centers of Lekj Asztrav and Vbarskoj, their development and prosperity largely dependent on the volatile climate and agriculture of the Krhzarzan. These urban settlements slowly developed over the subsequent centuries, with time gradually distinguishing the ancestors of the modern Haʞhai from other Proto-Hakkhitic people, such as the still largely nomadic Dsar to the north-east, the Makhaʞhai to the south centered around the city of Xatztokai, and the Kapakrzi of the Katarpie Mountains.
