Djedet, officially the Bahian Council Republic of Djedet (Badawiyan: الجمهورية جدتية الباهية المجلسية, romanized: al-Jumhūriyyah Jadatiyyah al-Bāhiyyah al-Majlisiyyah), is a sovereign state in central Coius bordered by Zorasan to the east, Habasha to the west, Tsabara and Adiris to the north, and Mabifia to the south.

Djedet is home to one of the oldest civilizations in the world. In the 4th millennium bce Djedet unified Upper and Lower Faras. Ruling the region for over four millennia, Djedet saw some of the world's earliest developments in agriculture, irrigation, writing, urbanization, and monumental architecture. The Makai Medewi Kingdom developed in southern Dotawo in the 3rd century bce. For millennia, the Djedet, Medewi, and Begwena, kingdoms of the east competed for control over the region. The region was ruled by competing Djedi, Makai, and Habashan states after the collapse of Djedet and Medewi in the 4th century bce. Djedet became the center of Sotirianity in Coius after the arrival of Saint Theodore and the foundation of the Orthodox Church of the South in 84 ce. After its arrival the religion spread rapidly across the region, leading to the eventual foundation of the Patriarchates of Upper and Lower Faras, Ashuria, and Dishairi.

In the 4th century the Empire of Mina reunited the former domains of Djedet, ushering in two centuries of peace and stability until its collapse in the 8th century. After the fall of Mina the Makai formed the three Orthodox kingdoms of Atouan, Souan, and Dotawo. From the 10th to 12th centuries the east bank of the Lower Faras was ruled by the Irfani Ghazi Dynasty. From the 13th to 19th centuries Djedet was ruled by the Beheiran Empire until it was partitioned and turned into a protectorate of Gaullica in 1880. Beheira declared independence in 1935 after the collapse of Gaullican control in Coius and Badawiya. In 1939 a military coup overthrew King Demetrios III, changed Beheira's name to Djedet, and declared a republic. In 1944 the Meshir Revolution led to the foundation of a socialist republic.
