The team was founded in mid-2020 after The Hexarchy's Micrasian claim was successful. They first competed in the 2021 FMF World Cup qualification rounds, performing well to finish top of their five-team group with 16 points and qualify for the finals at the first time of asking. In the finals, the team were eliminated at the group stage after finishing with four points.
In the following year's EMU qualifiers, the team finished second in their five-team group with 19 points, behind Normark in the automatic qualification spot on goal difference, to advance to the play-offs, where they beat Passas on away goals after tying on aggregate to reach the finals.

The team's composition following the 2021 qualifying matches is listed below. The squad consists of 25 players, with Belshazzar Bel-Dagon acting as the captain and Kara Arad-Indash as the current vice-captain. The captain and vice-captain always wear numbers 1 and 2, respectively. The rest were allotted numbers 3-25 in order of their position on the pitch.
The team's players chosen on a permanent basis through the Six Nations Football League, a domestic competition in which the annual regional champions qualified to represent The Hexarchy as a whole. The national team acts as an independent football club, so players may be traded into or out of the team as needed, with the difference being that the Praetor typically signs off on final deals in consultation with the team's players and management. The qualifying national team for 2020 was the Ashtaroth Eagles. However, given its second-place status in the previous tournament, Pyrax United was awarded the right to fill the first vacancy. It exercised this right almost immediately in early 2021, replacing the previous goalkeeper, Izami Haruhashi, found to be using steroids, with Hammurabi Gilgamesh-Pilagga U-Marduk, one of several sons of the country's Praetor. Both of those teams reconstituted during and after the 2022 season, with the impending retirement of older players.
The national government announced that, from the 2022 season, future players would be chosen from both domestic and international clubs, aligning with the norm (albeit doing so on a permanent basis as before), with recruitment to begin following the team's participation in the 2022 EMU Championships.
The team is known for its heavy use of the uncommon 5-2-3 formation, though the formation often becomes 5-3-2 during certain portions of the game.
The team's home colours are those found in the national flag: blue and yellow. The team's away colours are red and black, as used by the Ashtaroth Eagles. Before 2021, there was no standard away kit, with the team instead intending to use the colours of the qualified representative club. However, in early 2021, these away colours became permanent. Zathara Fashion Co. is the official manufacturer of the team's apparel.
The team itself is nominally headquartered in multiple sites, usually according to who qualifies at the national level. The cities of Azul'an, Kobol, Kanaloa, Ashtaroth, and Enkidu serve as the headquarters of each respective regional team, with others hosting visiting arenas of their own. In reality, once qualified, the national team rarely travels to other cities than Kobol, Kanaloa, or Ashtaroth during their tenure as champions of the Six Nations League as these are the sites of the three dedicated stadiums in the country currently set aside for international matches. The one most often in use is Eventide's Kobol Stadium, on a popular resort island to the west of the eponymous city mostly dedicated to outdoors and sporting activities. It is also commonly called the "Gilgamesh Stadium" by the locals, as he was the one whose assets made the country's first and only specialized football stadium a possibility. The second is located in Kanaloa, Elam, and is a multipurpose stadium usually used for far less innocuous sports than association football. International matches are rarely held here, due to costs associated with traveling to and visiting the city. The newest stadium, completed in late 1688 AN, is located in Ashtaroth.
The Hexarchy has used the following flag during the entirety of its FMF affiliation.
