Per-Aten, officially known as the Kingdom of Per-Aten (Atenic: Neswetej Per-Aten), is a sovereign theocratic monarchy in Alharu on Eurth. The country is ruled by King Ankhenaten XXVII Sa-Aten, and his Djat: Wehemmesu. The current head of the Hem-Natjer-Tepi-Aten is Imenemhat who leads the high-priesthood of Aten in its role as the judiciary. At this time the Per'A has become a pseudo-parliament formed of the delegations from Per-Nesu, Per-Sesh, Per-Mesha, and Per-Hemew. The four castes each have an internal power structure within their own houses, and forming asymmetric federalism with sub-national divisions based on castes rater than geographic location.
Per-Aten takes its name from the Atenic words for “The House of Aten”.
The geography of Per-Aten is dominated by the Hapi River.
- Seshej Per-Ma'at
The Atenic economy is dominated by Aketaten and Per-Sobek.
In the modern era, the Seshej Ma'at is most citizens only interaction with their national and sub-national governments, each of the four citizen castes having their own dedicated Sesh Department. The most unique are the Seshej Sesh, which form the overarching diplomatic, and business apparatus, and is divided among the Seshej Remet-Aten, or the Domestic economic bureaucratic structure, and the other Seshej Remet, representing the foreign diplomacy and business relationships with faithless peoples. It is worth noting that while most faithful are expected to have some ability to read, each Caste is only allowed to write in certain scripts. Hieroglyphic is reserved for the Nesu caste, and higher ranking Sesh caste members; Hieratic for the higher rank Mesha caste and lower ranking Sesh caste members; Demotic for the lower ranking Mesha, and Hemew overseers. The majority Hemew and Faithless are not permitted to use Heiroglyph derived scripts, and use a so-called “Ateno-Iverican” script, which is a domestic variant of the more glubally common Europan script. The Mesha caste has been divided into two distinct sub-castes, the Mesha (Army) and Nefu (Navy) which, after periods of stiff resistance, have started to modernize once more. The rest of the Faithful are known as Hemew, or “those who work”, and the faithless do not receive a title and are thus only identified by their ethnic name. However, some non-Ketek Faithful have higher Caste positions in which case their Origin is noted in addition to their caste, as an example an Iverican Sesh caste member, would be a Fenkhu-Sesh. A still smaller, but ever-growing number of Faithless foreigners have been given limited higher caste rights. In this case, they are identified by adding the negative suffix of -ef to their Ethnic identifier, for example if that Iverican Scribe was Faithless, they would be fenkhewef-Sesh. A selection of Ethinic identifiers follow, in order of legal precedent: Remet (Non-Atenist Ketek), Fenkhu (Iveric), Amew (Altarian, Colesian, or Wutic), Nehesej (Mesothalasan, Nari, or, Chenxas), and Temeh (Semitic, or Sayfi).
