INTRO

The citizens of Hawu Mumenhes are Ancient Egyptian-speaking African Americans. They trace their heritage to all corners of the globe and are a true melting pot. They primarily descend from Talmorians, Coburans, and Ibutho.


=========


DEMOGRAPHICS

The citizens of Hawu Mumenhes are known as the Hawu. Hawu Mumenhes is an immigrant nation, so the Hawu take great pride in their countries of origin and will often prefix their home countries' names to their Hawu nationality. The table below lists Hawu by the relative portions of citizens from each major country or polity of origin.


Hawu (Total Population): ca. 97 million
........Ibutho-Hawu (Zulu):...................................................................................................................................26%
........Coburan-Hawu (Ethiopian, Sudanese, and Egyptian) :......................................................................20.5%
........Talmorian-Hawu (Malian, Nigerian, Ghanaian, and Senegalese)..:................................................10%
........Esinsundu-Rutanian-Hawu (African American):...................................................................................9%
........Watembo-Hawu (Tanzanian, Kenyan, Congolese, and Ugandan):..................................................8.5%
........Ibutho-Luthori-Hawu (African British):......................................................................................................6.5%
........Ikpi-Hawu (Aboriginal Australian):............................................................................................................6%
........Beta Yishalem-Hawu (Ethiopian Jews):.................................................................................................4%
........Kuragao-Hawu (Pan African):....................................................................................................................2.5%
........Esinsundu-Malivian-Hawu (African Caribbean)....................................................................................2%

........Gao-Showan (Pan East Asian)....................0.19%
........Majatran (Arabs):............................................0.15%
........Other:................................................................0.13%


All groups with the suffix "-Hawu" are Esinsundu (African/Black).

Names may be Ancient Egyptian, Ancient Kushite, or based proportionately on the percentages above. Due to Hawu Mumenhes's high ethnic diversity and melting pot nature, "cross-cultural" names made up of reasonable combinations of any of Hawu Mumenhes's various cultural influences are also appropriate. Examples: Martin Luther Nkosi, Tutankhmumenhes Keita, Sundiata Dubois, Oprah Nyerere, Denzel Selassie, Nefertiti Mandela, Beyonce Akhenaten. The use of real life persons, and places and events is expressly forbidden by Game Rules. Therefore, Ancient Egyptian and Ancient Kushite names which include names of real-life Gods must substitute their Particracy equivalents. For example, the first syllable of Rameses refers to the God Ra. So the Particracy equivalent would be Mumenhesmeses since Mumenhes is the Particracy version of Ra.

Names may be written in Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphics or the Roman alphabet.


***NOTE: While these numbers should be fluid they SHOULD NOT fluctuate wildly without extensive RP and consent of those involved.

***NOTE: The use of real life persons, and places and events is expressly forbidden by Game Rules. If unsure please consult Moderation or fellow players.

RELIGION

The main religion of Hawu Mumenhes is Arkhē Mumenhes. It is an "Ibuthoized" version of Arkhē, Cobura's ancient religion.

"Arkhē Mumenhes" means "The Foundation of the Consciousness of God." Unlike Coburan Arkhē, Arkhē Mumenhes is a monotheistic religion. In Arkhē Mumenhes, God is named "Mumenhes," which means "consciousness" (OOC: Mumenhes is the particracy version of Ra, the Ancient Egyptian God). Therefore, the religion is called "Arkhē Mumenhes" because Arkhē and Cobura are the origin and foundation of Mumenhes, Creator and Lord of the Universe. Interestingly, the country's name comes from the Arkhē Mumenhes religion: "Hawu Mumenhes" means "The Body of God," because the entire universe exists within the Body of Mumenhes. When citizens of our country call themselves "Hawu," they are litterely calling themselves "the Body of God."

Other religions in Hawu Mumenhes include Arkhē, the unreformed Coburan religion; Inkolo Esintsundu Sizwe Syncretism (IESS), the Ibutho state religion during the Golden Age; Inkolo, the Ancient Ibutho religion; Coburan Apostolic Tewahedo Hosianism, Bishopal Hosianism, Patriarchal Hosianism, and Rasezana Hosianism.

BACKGROUND

Hawu Mumenhes was founded in 4043 based on a plan by Fourth Week Group, a transcontinental members-only association of Esinsundu executives who sought to build a new country in the former territory of Ibutho after mass depopulation in that country. Fourth Week Group aimed to create a country that could guarantee freedom, prosperity, and security for its citizens and the world. In 4039, Fourth Week Group tasked Esinsundu-Rutanian insurance executive Hermelinda Shelby with the creation of an Ibutho political party to implement the Group's objectives. Shortly after its founding, the party, called The Federationists, began urging Ibutho President Sizwe Ihejirika to call a Constitutional Convention on the grounds that Ibutho had been too damaged by foreign infiltrators to be salvaged. President Ihejirika granted the Federationist request and ordered drafting for the Constitution of a new state to begin in the summer of 4040. Attendees cloistered themselves for three years, with debates hinging primarily on the structure of the new state and the character and identity of the country. Attendees emerged in June 4043, presenting President Ihejirika with a Constitutional Framework for a popularly-elected monarchy administered by a federal government oriented to militarism and neocolonialist expansion.

PRE-HISTORY

Hawu Mumenhes's predecessor state was known as Ibutho. Thought by many anthropologists to originate in Dovani, Ibutho settlers migrated to the eastern coast of Artania sometime prior to recorded history. The settlers lived quietly amongst the Ancient Ikradonians until a series of territorial conflicts led to the collapse of the Ikradonian government following several crippling defeats at the hands of the Ibutho settlers. On the ashes of Ancient Ikradon, the Ibutho settlers organized themselves into a loose confederation of eight kingdoms. The Ibutho Confederation was isolationist and largely unknown to outsiders until Luthori, Dundorfian, and Rutanian explorers began crossing into its borders sometime in the 3rd or 4th millennium. The Luthori Empire invaded Ibutho soon after with colonialist designs aimed largely at confiscation of Ibutho mineral wealth.

MODERN HISTORY

Through diplomacy and patronage, King Shabangu the Younger of Southern Kwalakubo, one of the eight Ibutho confederated kingdoms, drew the confederation into a more centralized state beginning in the mid 3500s. The unitary government better equipped the confederation to push back the Luthori occupiers who were finally expelled in the late 36th century. After decades of blundering foreign policy failures, King Mlungisi the Orderer sparked a religious, literary, and political renaissance leading to a 200-year Golden Age during which the kingdom was renamed "The Army of Heaven" and established enduring and influential, if narrow, relations abroad. The Golden Age was ended in the mid 3800s by the Mopoho Interregnum, during which a foreign-backed insurrectionist force deposed the reclusive King Bathandwa, launching the then-prosperous country into 150 years of regression. Alternating military and Metzist (OOC: Marxist) governments lead the country through severe successive economic depressions and a radical dismantling of Golden Age values. Bathandwa's nephew, King Saksoure III of Cobura, attempted a renaissance for much of the 40th century. The revitalization effort, however, proved too great an administrative hurdle for the foreign king, who was himself deposed from the Ibutho throne in 3971. Large-scale emigration, already apace during the Mopoho Interregnum, increased torrentially over the next half century's repetition of foreign-backed and Metzist policies, leaving the country at one quarter it's usual population by the 4020s. A foreign-backed government had planned the dismantlement of Ibutho throughout the 4020s before that government itself collapsed several years later. In 4039, President Ihejirika was elected to lead the few remaining citizens of Ibutho, whose population had by then dwindled to a mere 2 million.

CHARACTER OF THE COUNTRY

The territory that became Hawu Mumenhes was repopulated primarily through hiring and salary incentives offered by Fourth Week Group and their extensive network of business colleagues and controlled companies who partnered together to redesign and reconstruct the territory's infrastructure and economy. As a result of this unique peopling, Hawu tend to be business minded, fiercely capitalist, and part of the professional class. Fourth Week Group members were in the main patriotic and nationalist. They therefore focused their recruitment on Esinsundu countries, provinces, and neighborhoods when hiring for the new Hawu economy. Many of the targeted Esinsundu jurisdictions had faced down gross and/or repeated war crimes, barbarism, torture, and even genocide committed by various Artanian, Gao-Showan, and Majatran culprits. This historical memory has contributed to widespread sentiments of militarism, nationalism, and interventionism among the Hawu, especially when Ezinsundu are involved or Esinsundu interests are at stake.

Ibutho's exiled royal family and many nobles settled in Cobura, which shared a 200-year diplomatic relationship with Ibutho due to royal marriage ties and closely-related religions. Following the Hawu Mumenhes Constitutional Convention, the Ibutho royal family returned to their land of origin to reign in the new country's democratic monarchy. During their long stay abroad, the royals had experienced significant Coburization, including adopting the ancient religion, fashion, and language of their adoptive country. The royals brought that acculturation with them when returning to East Artania and inspired a similar Coburist zeal amongst their new Hawu countrymen. Due to this influence, Hawu's language, religion, and fashion are distinctly Irkawan and Domalen in character, and Hawu architecture and planning were deliberately designed to be neo-Irkawan with a futurist twist.

In the early 42nd century, Pharaoh Saksoure VI married the Queen of Talmoria and founded the Esinsundu Empire, a transcontinental superstate comprised of the sovereign kingdoms of Hawu Mumenhes, Cobura, and Talmoria and the Coburan colony of Jakania. The empire's geographical expanse and enormous economy has enabled Hawu Mumenhes to more effectively project its ideals of freedom, prosperity, and security to the world and cement its reputation as a global power.

ToDebating the OOC: Cultural Protocols Update and Affirmation
MessageThis update includes reductions in the Coburan, Ibutho-Luthori, Watembo, and Kuragao portions due to assumed back-migration on account of the return of political stability in Cobura following the Tokundi War of Independence, the outlawing of ethnic segregation in Luthori, and the end of colonialism in Dovani respectively. It also includes the introduction of Esinsundu Malivians, Rajutti Malivians, and Talmorian Likatonians due to the political instability caused by the criminal regimes in those countries, and an increase in Esinsundu Rutanians due to the prominence of Esinsundu Rutanians in Hawu society including Presidents Shelby and Chapman. There are attendant adjustments to religions and languages to accommodate the population shifts.
