Herdek (Herdwate: Hêrdek, /ˈhɛɾdək/), officially the Kingdom of Herdek, is a country located in western Miraria. Its neighbors are Qgam to the north, Kuanta to the east, Methinaqh to the south and Chalyl to the north-west.

Etymology

The name Hêrdek comes from the Proto-Methic words hərtə, Land and təndə, Moose, subsequently Hêrdek literally means Land of Moose. There are several hypotheses for the origin of this toponym. The most accepted one is the one that affirms that the first steady inhabitants of the territory founded the first city of the modern state in a location with a very dense population of moose (likely the south-central part of the Region of Chatek). Another theory affirms that moose were very important for the first settlers until Industrial Revolution, since they were an efficient mean of transport, that allowed goods and passengers to be transported to other cities, and also a source of food. Nowadays moose still have a great importance in Herdekian culture.
