Elementans age every million years (which is the equivalent to one year on Earth) and can live up to a hundred million years (which is the equivalent to 100 years on Earth), but some have lived longer and others have lived shorter. The galaxy is also in its 478th generation of the 1st millennium and 40th century.
Outsiders who have decided to make Elementa their permanent home can receive Uchū’s blessing in a ritual called Neueinstellung (Readjustment), this is so that they can be attuned to the galaxy’s timescale since 10 hours is the equivalent to ten thousand years on Earth. Fortunately, this doesn’t affect Outsiders too much as time still flows the same for them and the only reason one should get the ritual done is if they have no plans of leaving the galaxy.
The calendar is called Dimiourgía (Creation) and the designation for it is Synechizómeni Yparxi (Continued Existence), which denotes the time after The Destroyer's defeat and the continued existence of all things.
The current year is 14,080,000,000 SY (14 B 80 M SY).
Each of the months last for 100 days in Elementa time:
Each of the seasons last for 250 days in Elementa time:
The first eleven zodiac signs last for 83 days each, with the twelfth one lasting for 87 days in Elementa time:
The currency is called Elementium, E. for short; its physical form is a set of twelve coloured crystal balls that start with the value of 1 E. (this number appears on one side of the ball), they have absorbing properties when they are in close proximity with other balls of its colour and they automatically change the value after absorption. Crystal shards are used to separate an amount from them and is then discharged onto its respective ball, much like how an eyedropper works. Everyone (including visitors) is given a carrying box with a starting value of 1200 E.
In addition; a wristwatch is also given to everyone, which is used as both a credit card and identification card. The wearer will receive 125 E. every 5 hours in-universe, so at the end of the day they will have earned 250 E. People can also earn money the normal way, such as being employed or helping people.
There are twelve elements in the galaxy:
With each element having an opposite:
And each element having an attribute:
The galaxy is governed by the Coniunctio de Elementa, an alliance of all the twelve solar systems and is led by the Sýmpan system. Its base of operations is at the Enosi Archigeío (Union Headquarters) and is managed by an elected head, they rule for an indefinite amount of time until they are voted out of office where they are replaced by another. There is only one political party in the assembly but there are representatives from all of the systems, who bring matters to the head’s attention for them to address accordingly. Their reach extends to local councils housed in a building called Póli Aíthousa (City Hall), this is where citizens can request for help or raise issues.
The language is Elementian, which is a combination of:
The religion is called Elementism and it is the widespread belief that the universe was made by a powerful being known as The Creator, who (after the full development of its powers) gave birth to twelve elemental deities. They helped in the construction and management of everything within and established the first galaxy known as Elementa, where its inhabitants have believed it would be the closest to Him.
There are three supreme beings in this pantheon:
