Calendar[]

The calendar has five months, named pwong 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. Each month has 73 days. Of these 70 are a part of seven-day weeks, and the remaining three days are considered auspicious. Depending on the date of the summer solstice, there may be an extra auspicious leap day after the first month. Year 1 began on May 9, 722 AD. The calendar was taken out of operation due to conflicts with the Gregorian calendar.

Time System[]

The day is split into 9 wĩn, each of which has a sound to chime the hour. These are split into 15 nxjan. Each of these is split into 900 fẽn.
