Based on Wikipedia, for Thailand, I believe the country should be split into the following systems:

1) Thailand primary national roads: Single-digit and double-digit routes.
2) Thailand regional national roads: Triple-digit routes.
3) Thailand intra-regional roads: 4-digit routes <-- I'm not sure if this would be allowed in Travel Mapping since, well, it is the lowest national classification and there appears to be a very large number of them on Wikipedia, however, there is a lower classification than 4-digit routes, Rural Highways, which are overseen by a different department from the national roads.
4) Bangkok Expressway Network: These tolled expressways, and are owned and maintained by EXAT, a government enterprise. There's also the Don Muang Tollway which isn't owned or operated by EXAT, and is also not part of the national network, so I don't know where that would go.

5) Thai motorway network?: There are only two actual motorways in Thailand, and in Thailand, motorways are not classified as the same as Bangkok's Expressways. It's Route 7 which is a full motorway, and Route 9, only a part of which is a motorway. Since there's so few, perhaps this would just be included in the Thai Primary network?

Anyways, take this with a grain of salt, as I've never actually lived in, nor visited Thailand.

Is there a reason prkah is a separate system and not part of asiah?

yes, because it (and all the other such systems) aren't ready for inclusion in an active system and being split by country makes it easier to work on, get them ready and reviewed and merged into asiah.

It's what we did with eure on CHM.

I see; that makes sense.

So if I wanted to see all the routes I would go to https://travelmapping.net/user/mapview.php?sys=asiah,bgdah,btnah,khmah,chnah,indaho,idnah,prkah,laoah,mmrah,nplah,thaah,vnmah .

yes, except it's not all the routes as a few are at a devel level.

If you are looking for a map, then UNESCAP has a couple of decent ones (a geographic one they did, a topological one by Cam Booth that they commissioned). Doesn't include the ASEAN 3-digit routes though.

Oman has a routelog here: https://www.mtcit.gov.om/ITAPortal/Pages/Page.aspx?NID=292763&PID=581044

While Google Maps has the markers, I couldn't find any in a cursory glance on Streetview.

Syria: there is a motorway system that has unfortunately been mentioned in the news. https://apnews.com/article/9f6d1f6ea8866e2d82e41b9bf08e67a5
