The Engsvanyáli year (and hence that of the Five Empires, and Pecháno) is divided into 12 months of 30 days each. Five intercalary days are added to bring the total to 365. every fourth year another day (Tsolyáni: Kolúmehagi) is appended to the account for certain orbital irregularities. In Tsolyánu the Kòluméhagi is dedicated to the glories of the Emperor, as its name implies, while in Mu'ugalavyá it is devoted to Hŕsh, in Yán Kór to Karakán, in Livyánu to Qame'él, and in Salarvyá and Pecháno to orgiastic festivities as an "empty day."
The Pecháni employ the calendar devised by the Priest-King Kazhiloob during the last centuries of the Engsvanyáli Empire, and the current year is 9,932 AK (After Kazhiloob). The Salarvyáni also favours this era, but their scholars reckon the length of The Time of No Kings differently, and the "Era of Tsatsayágga" therefore adds 3,250 years, and it is thus presently 13,182 ET. Pecháno officially uses the former calendar, although in the past the Salarvyáni calendar was also used.
The Pecháni days are organised thus:
