Hemesh (Hemeshi: Hemes, IPA: /ˈhemeʂ/), sometimes known as West Hemesh and officially the United Kingdom of Hemesh, is a country located in the Hemeshi peninsula in Ekuosia. It is bordered to the north by Fyevan and to the east by Sroyos, and to the south and west by the Armizziya sea; it is separated by Orzun by the Gulf of Amun. It is the second largest state on the Hemesh peninsula by size and the largest by population.

Human presence on the Hemesh peninsula dates back to the Paleolithic. Indigenous agrarian people largely inhabited the peninsula until they were gradually displaced by Argeyazic pastoralists who migrated south during the mid 1st millenium BCE. City-states and minor kingdoms began to appear around 300BCE, though the peninsula remained disunited until its unification in 620 CE. Iovism arrived during the first century CE, which would became the dominant religion until widespread Pashaification in the 14th century, when Hemesh came under the rule of the First Terminian Empire.

The modern-day United Kingdom of Hemesh dates back to 1849, when several small kingdoms on the south coast became protectorates of the Letzian Empire. In 1888 Letzia annexed all of western Hemesh from Olboros Terminia. Briefly governed as a separate colony, responsibility for the conquered territory was given to the united protectorates in 1899. After the onset of civil war in Letzia, Prince Sahad Adoz of Gemet took steps to unite the protectorates and formed the Kingdom of Hemesh in 1929, though the country remain under Letzian suzerainty.
