Culture


Khemetian civilization stems partly from its ability to adapt to the conditions of the Anekh River Valley. Khemetians engage in mineral exploitation of the valley and surrounding desert regions, the organization of collective construction and agricultural projects, trade with surrounding regions, and a military intended to defeat foreign enemies and assert Khemetian dominance. Motivating and organizing these activities is a bureaucracy of elite scribes, religious leaders, and administrators under the control of a Pharaoh who ensures the cooperation and unity of the Khemetian people in the context of an elaborate system of religious beliefs.
