Anathar is a large desert nation in Somnus, connecting to northern Regolia and southern Hanaskovia. The country was divided by the ongoing war between the north, run by the then-Mansa, Rai Singh, and the south, ruled by the Pharaoh, Malik I.
The conflict was settled following Singh's death at the hands of Azoth, allowing Malik to fill the void. Anathar is the place of origin for Shantar Mott, the first Sultan of Carta.
Anathar is ruled by the Pharaoh of Anathar and his four chosen Priests. The Pharaoh rules from the Great Pyramid of Miftah, while the Priests normally reside in the Four Pyramids.
The Priest of Power, Akram, is courted by the four Apostles of Power, the Vier Jagter, who also serve as Pharaoh Malik's top private mercenaries.
Following the south's takeover of the north, the title of Northminister was established.
