Amerhan (Terminian: Áámerqńi [who knows]) is a sovereign state located on the south of Akulanen, bordered by Aayke Ngol and Magali to the east; Shohai to the north; and the Sharkunen Sea to the east and south. Its capital and most populous city, Gjeerń, is the largest city in Akulanen. Amerhan's territory consists primarily of tropical savannah, comprising a total land area of 416,293 km2. Ethnic Amerhanis – the largest ethnic group in the country – are a Termic people, although other Ngerupic groups are prevalent in the north and west of the country.
The modern state of Amerhan gained its independence from the Helsonian Union in 2005, only the second unified and sovereign Amerhani state in the nation's history. Before this point, Amerhan had been under constant rule from the Terminian Isles since 1690 AD. The Kingdom of Amerhan was one of the constituent monarchies of the Terminian Three Kingdoms, and Amerhan initially remained loyal to the Olboros crown during the Helsonian Revolution. Following the Invasion of Amerhan in 1927, however, the country entered a period of Kúúlist rule, and gained its current administrative structure in 1946 with the establishment of the Amerhani SHR. Following independence Amerhan joined the Ekuosian Union in 2014, making it the most recent state to do so, and the first to be located fully outside the Baredinan continent.
Since the end of Helsonian rule, Amerhan's economy has seen a slow shift towards a liberal market economy, undertaken using a philosophy of "soft-dekúúlisation". Although initially experiencing rapid growth, Amerhan's economy has stagnated in recent years, and it remains one of Ekuosia's poorest countries. Over 70% of Amerhan's 41.92 million people reside in urban areas, and commercial and cultural activities are largely centred on the coast. Amerhan shares close economic and cultural ties with the Terminian Dominion through the New Partnership Initiative.

Amerhan is located on the southern coast of Akulanen, bordering Aayke Ngol and Magali to the west, Shohai to the northwest and ??? to the northeast. To the east and south, Amerhan also borders the Sharkunen and Taanttu Seas, respectively. Amerhan mostly lies between latitudes 10° and 16° N and longitudes 18° and 6° W. Amerhani territory covers 416,293 km2 (160,732 sq mi), making it the second largest country on Akulanen, after Shohai.
Much of Amerhan's northern border is defined by the ??? and ??? mountain ranges, and as such elevation varies wildly from the mountainous north to the coastal south. The highest point in Amerhan is Mount Sohirn, which reaches 5,243 metres (17,201 ft) in Amerhan's northeast. Mt Sohirn is also the source of the ??? river, Akulanen's largest river which flows through the Shohai desert.
Amerhan is mostly covered by a tropical monsoon and savanna climate, with the southern and coastal regions being on average more humid and forested. Amerhan, partly due to its great elevation differences, receives highly varying temperatures throughout the country - the national record high of 42°C (108°F) was recorded in ??? in 2012, and the record low of -12°C (10°F) was recorded on the Sohirn mountain range in 1972. The state of ???, which lies to the northwest of the Sohirn mountain range, is an exception to the tropical climate of the rest of Amerhan, being mostly arid desert.
