Juhashka (Juhash: Juhaška Juhaška [d͡ʒu'hɒʃ.kɒ]), officially the Republic of Juhashka, is a country located in northeastern Miraria, bordered by Fazulavaz to the north, the Gulf of Nehil to the east, and Athsud to the south. Its territory also includes the autonomous province of Sarkik, located in the western Shaelic sea.
A large proportion of the Juhash population live a nomadic or semi-nomadic lifestyle. The majority of the population adhere to traditional Mahavic religion, though there is a sizeable amount of (Temay religion), largely among ethnic Sheisho. The majority of the country is ethnically Juhash, though Fazul, Qyzyd, Sheisho and other smaller minorities also live in the country.
The Juhash steppes have been inhabited by nomadic people for thousands of years, while fishing communities have maintained a long presence on the eastern coast. During the 10th century, the warring Mahavic tribes that populated the steppes were united by Yede Galkhai into the tribal confederacy that became known as the Sunrise Horde, which would go on to conquer much of eastern Miraria over the next 200 years. Though the empire gradually crumbled during the 14th century, the core areas of remained united under the Galkhai Dynasty. A series of events in the later years of the dynasty marked a gradual decline in the once-dominant status of the Juhash, starting in 1505 when the capital was moved from Kahat to Creniz in modern-day Fazulavaz, and culminating in 1617 when power was seized by the ethnic Faźul Y Dynasty. In 1721 a group of Juhash nobles and clans revolted against the Y Monarchy and proclaimed the Kingdom of Juhashka under the Müjän Dynasty.
Juhashka is divided into 26 provinces, of which 3 are city-states, and the autonomous region of Sarkik.
Since the fall of the isolationist Balkist government following the Silent Revolution in 1986, Juhashka has established strong diplomatic ties with many of its neighbours. Its most important bilateral relationship is with its northern neighbour, Fazulavaz.

Juhash is the official and predominant language in Juhashka. In addition to Juhash, other languages native to Juhashka include Faźul, Kasel, Mutal, Qyzyd, and Sheisho. Like Juhash, these minority languages are all East Mahavic languages. Agyur and Sarkiki, are both spoken in the autonomous administration of Sarkik.
