Mahat (ma-HAT) - Order (or peace, can also be translated as 'peaceful place' considering the context)

Located on the northern shore of the Middle Sea and east of the mountain kingdom of Matawe and the Sea of Sand, the river nation of Mahat is perhaps the greatest empire of its time. Thanks to the predictable flooding of the Hiperu river, famine is a rare event in Mahat, and the people are prosperous. It also has several natural defences being bordered by the sea, the mountains, and the eastern badlands.

Although united under the Paref (the king of kings), Mahat is separated into three distinct kingdoms, each kingdom having its own king.

The Sea Mahat

Mahat South2

Nestled along the coastline, this delta is the gateway of trade to the southern Sephian Islands and the lands east of Caemaan. It's capitol is Sareeb. The first Paref, Neema, was born in the Sea Mahat.

The King of the Sea Mahat, Utarna, lives in the White Palace, in Sareeb. Utarna is particularly fond of the colour purple, and those loyal to him will wear the colour to show their allegiance. His crown is a tall, stiff cap coloured dark purple.

The Mountain Mahat

Mahat North3

Bordering the lands of Matawe and the northern lands of Kuroe and Ethia, the Mountain Mahat is highly fortified. This was the last kingdom to join Mahat.

As well as the King of the Mountain Mahat, the Paref also lives in the capitol, Nepata. The King of the Mountain Mahat lives in the Palace of the Setting Sun. The Paref lives in the Palace of the Rising Sun.

This is the location of the Golden Temple.

The city of Hattute was formerly part of the Mountain Mahat, but after Paref Amotefen VI's death it was abandoned and soon taken over by the Matawega.

The Lake Mahat

At one time the great city of the Lake Mahat was considered the jewel of the Hiperu. Now, however, the ruins in the lake are the only evidence a great city ever existed there.

Loss of the Lake Mahat

The legend of the Drowned Sister and the Burnt Sister tells the story of twins, both wives of the Paref, who fought each other to have their own son be named the Paref's heir. Their adversary eventually led to the deaths of their sons, and the very city itself. Others believe that a change in the flow of the Hiperu led to the city being flooded.
