As the many nations found each other into the stars, knowing one another became a necessity. When nations agreed, archives were linked to one another. Perhaps not intended, but slowly the nations formed what later would evolve to become an encyclopedia. All the knowledge was collected into one place for everyone to inform themselves.
Drakari Celestial Imperium
The Drakari Imperium occupies a large area of space in the extreme north. It is the oldest known star nation in the Sector, and has existed for around twelve thousand years. Over it’s long existence, the Imperium has imposed it’s authority or has declared itself as the protector of many smaller nations. While the Imperium’s ruling class is exclusively comprised of the Drakari species, tall dragon-like humanoids, the members of the many Protectorate Species all have citizenship status and the same rights as the Drakari. The Imperium is known both for lending a helping hand to other nations in need, and for intervening with force when other nations indulge in activities such as slavery. With a powerful economy and stable government, the Drakari Imperium is a very reliable ally.
Stoinian Star Kingdom
The Stoinian Star Kingdom occupies an area of space in the south, right under the Ventuu Badlands. Their nation descends from a lost colony of humans that have faced multiple wars of extinction, forcing them to become rather martial and quite skeptical of other alien races. Not only are they a young and expanding nation, but they are ripe and willing to spread their influence. Although politically speaking, the Terran supremacy belief that permeates the Kingdom is slowly starting to fade and will have some large repercussions in the future. They are reliable and powerful allies, although they have been known to treat non humans with little respect. They are also known for their particular hate of cybernetic implants.
Treecuu Star Empire
The Treecuu Star Empire occupies an area of space in the center-south of the Sector. The second youngest star nation in the Sector, they have conquered many primitive and more advances nations, and are quite oppressive rulers, as their subject species are barred from space travel and confined to their planets. They have particularly good relations with the Stoinians, and often work together to bring forth their idea of order through conquest and oppression. However, their subjects are still able to freely express their culture and values, with the Treecuu rarely interfering with such things.
The Tarassian Union occupies an area of space in the center-north of the Sector, just above the Tiyanki Territories. They are relatively old, and maintain perhaps the strongest isolationist policy in the Sector: not many may know it whereabouts or even existence and the Union is eager to keep it that way. As it’s name suggests, this nation is a union of four different species that protect each other and act as one. In the Union, the line between citizen and military is blurred, as their entire culture revolves around discipline and the military career. Despite having the strongest military in the Sector, the Union is either unable or uninterested in expanding their territories.
The Ryccian Empire occupies a large area of space in the north-east. One of the oldest nations in the Sector, the rather decadent and previously oppressive empire faced a democratic revolution roughly 1.000 years ago and has since become a much more progressive and libertarian nation. However, they are currently facing political turmoil due to recent instability and a violent government coup. While the ruling class and most of the population are human, different species have citizenship in the Ryccian Empire. Their nation is one of the biggest political powers in the Sector, and is perhaps one of the richest. They have been shown to be trustworthy allies in many occasions, but their recent political instabilities might challenge that reputation.
The Venterran Federation occupies a large area of the extreme east of the Sector. The Federation is quite old, and is successor of the nation of Venterra, who was founded around ten thousand years ago when the Venterrans migrated to Sector A1-0 from the Switch Galaxy, the biggest satellite galaxy of Lampshade, after a great cataclysm that rendered Switch uninhabitable. The Venterran Federation has one of the worst reputations in the Sector, caused by their hate of all humans, that stems from the role that some humans played in the Switch cataclysm. However, they are much more amicable to all non human life, often seeking to establish relations with other nations. Regardless of this, they still see any potential alliance with or protection of human species as a very negative thing, believing that the Terrans, as they called them, “tricked” them into said alliance or protection.
The Zelvan Regime occupies an area of space in the south-east, under the Lesser Western Badlands and the Galactyan Nebulae. It is one of the oldest nations in the Sector, and has the worst reputation in the Sector at large, because of their fanatic religious belief that they have the divine right to enslave lesser races. They are known for the the sheer cruelty they subject their slaves to, and although they have recently decided to open up to the rest of the Sector about their slaver religion and ideologies, most have either purposefully ignored them or have started plans to eliminate them. However, rumors speak of a new ideology that entails a better treatment and far less cruelty of the slaves, that may give the Zelvan Regime an actual chance in the Sector’s Interstellar stage.
Celestial Empire Of Galactya
The Celestial Empire Of Galactya occupies the space between and within the Galactyan Nebulae, beside the Lesser Western Badlands. The Empire is the second oldest nation in the Sector, having existed for almost ten thousand years. The Empire is almost exclusively inhabited by the Galactyans, a race of aliens that have genetically modified themselves into 70 completely different species. Galactyans are almost totally incapable of cruelty thanks to the first genetic manipulation operations, with crime and discrimination being therefore almost absent. However, their child-like nature and incredible diversity often makes their culture very difficult to understand to other nations, who have stated to feel uneasy around them. Thanks to their net of strong alliances, they have strongly boosted their economy and military.
Star Empire Of Calerost
The Star Empire Of Calerost occupies an area of space between the Galactyan Nebulae and the Tiyanki Expanses. It is a relatively old nation, and it’s spacefaring history, both past and current, is tightly connected to Mirial Space, a dimension existing in parallel with Real Space and with slightly different laws of physics, which they have used for their weapons and currently use as their method of FTL travel. The Empire is almost entirely inhabited by the Edhel, a species of humanoid elves with innate telepathic abilities, although some migration from allied nations is starting to happen. They aren’t xenophobic by any means, but due to a past ancient war they tend to be more diffident of other nations. Despite this, their sense of honor makes them very reliable allies.
Holy Imperium Of Trianar
The Holy Imperium of Trianar occupies a vast area in the southwest corner of the sector, encapsulating a large portion of the Southern Red Nebula. A nation with a confusing history, the starting point of the Ikaranarean Colonies is accepted as it’s beginning, however making the Trianarö only relatively old. Following a harsh war and a more morally brutal civil war lost to history, its ideology rapidly developed into one characterized by the existence of 3 types of species: Higher Races, Lower Races, and Demon Races, with the Ikaranareans being the first confirmed Higher Race and the rulers of the nation. With a myriad of strange resources and and a very, very powerful military, it is unknown how Trianar will come into the sector.
