The Scientific Directorate of Rosecordia

Overview
The Scientific Directorate of Rosecordia is situated in the Northeast (mapwise) corner of A1-0. The SDR is situated in the Serniani Nebula, a treacherous area to travel by realspace, comparable to a badlands. The SDR has been around for a long time, however in recent time, was granted their own independent state in a brief but deadly civil war.

Culture
The Serniani are unreasonably guarded, with the dark forest theory dictating thought and is the primary reason most Serniani are closed off, and is a major reason they don’t expand out in to the surrounding areas. In recent times, most Serniani are still xenophobic, but are opening up to others, recognizing common threats to their stability.

History
It’s not really known when the first civilizations inhabited the Serniani Nebula. The Technocratic Federation of Serniani (TFS) handled history and that history was lost during the Rosecordi Succession Crisis. It is known they’ve been around for around the same time that the Galactyans have been, quietly observing and researching. Approximately in 94 BBT, the Rose Nexus was discovered. It’s discovery was kept quiet until 55 BBT. In 0 BBT, the Rosecordi Seceded from the Technocratic Federation of Serniani. The Rosecordi Succession Crisis ended at the end of 1 ABT. In addition, the SDR has allied with the Grand Commisart of Enver (GCE) and the Colonus Pact, in an alliance known as the Economic and Security Council of Outlying Powers (ESCOP).

Economy

Trade
The SDR trades raw materials with the Colonus Pact, and sometimes with Enver. In the Nexus, there are a few trading posts between the SDR and The Galactyan Empire. Other than those few exceptions, the SDR is self reliant on materials, and the Nebula is plentiful with resources needed.

Military
The Rosecordi Defense Forces (RDF) are separated into traditional branches; Naval Defense Force, Ground Defense Force, and Marines Corps. Most systems have their own policing branches and ships, forming militias and other organizations…

The Holy Imperium of Trianar

Overview

The Holy Imperium of Trianar is a star nation in sector A1-0 which oversees a vast swathe of territory in the lower portion of the sector. The Imperium, the only institution within the region to ever be able to hold all of the territory within, has ruled for 1000 years under various leaders of the Ikaranarean race, known as Imperös. The nation is characterized by its religion, its military, and its isolationist and independent nature in comparison to many parts of the sector.

Culture
Trianarö culture is based mainly on service to the state and to the community, and in extension service to the Gods. A Trianarö is expected to show humility in the face of conflict with another and to keep their community running smoothly. Trianarö love challenges that focus on both physical and mental aspects. Martial arts, especially spearfighting, but also games like chess, other board games, and challenging video games. The Great Game may be one of the greatest non-military recreational tests of mind in the entire sector, forcing participants to think not just on a planetary, but entire region of scale.

Trianar has 6 species: The Kanareö, the Sycriûn, the Mekanakûl, Humans, Mekagrani and Ikaranareans. These species are divided among mostly historical lines- although a scarce few worlds, like Kalasö, contain populations of the four main species and a scarce few Mekagrani. The Ikaranareans are hailed as a Higher Race, servants of the gods, and therefore are the ruling class of the nation; the leading Ikaranarean is called the Imperö, who it is said is chosen by the guiding hands of the Gods in the form of a vote from the Imperium Council.

Religion
Trianarö religion is mandated and revered- it is said that the entire purpose of the nation was to serve their gods in the utter destruction of demons. Trianarö religion mandates that there are 3 types of species; Demon races, whom serve the demons and therefore the destruction of the Gods, Higher Races, who serve the Gods in their rightful and eternal war against the demons, and the Middle Races, who were not born to support either side. For this reason, the Ikaranareans, the Higher Race of Trianar due to their connection with the sacred crystals Safarkran and Mosarkran, materials that grant the power of creation and destruction respectively. The only other known higher race is the Edhelrim of Calerost, due to their telepathic abilities.

History
Interstellar civilization has existed in Trianar for untold millennia after the Shattering of Syxriar and the Great Kanareö exodus. However, Trianarö history is generally accepted to begin in roughly 3000 BBT, after the arrival of the Ikaranarean Colonists. The Ikaranarean colonists faced many hardships facing off against the well established states of the region. However, little by little, they annexed territory and gained influence in the area, forming the Ikaranarean Star Empire. In the Era of the ISE, the only difference between a declared war and a minor skirmish was how many fleets were involved. Tensions between neighboring states were at an all time high, and all of this came to a head in the Xanstal war.

During the Xanstal war, it is said that demons came from another dimension to destroy all non-subservient life in the region. It is said that the Xanstals modified their own Sycriûn bodies into monstrous horrors. It is said that, if the coalition lost, the entire galaxy could have been at risk. Whatever the case, it is undeniable that the war was the largest in the region’s history, claiming over 10 trillion lives across the area and devastating the Ikaranarean population in particular, being one of the deadliest conflicts in the Sector’s history. The repercussions of the war were felt for centuries to come, and the traumatized and fragmented Ikaranarean Star Empire gave way to the most radical ideas. Due to then recent discoveries that only Ikaranareans could survive direct integration with Mosarkran and Safarkran, the nation began its belief that their fight against demons had truly been in service to gods. After they integrated the Sûtran Empire, the Holy Imperium of Trianar was declared. The Hemmerhaldians were annexed soon after during the brutal Hemmerhaldian War.

Economy
The Trianarö economy is free market, with some sectors like the military being heavily controlled by the government. For the most part, however, the economy is encouraged by free market competition that is guided by government policy; while the entertainment industry is fairly popular, the most profitable industry is the mining industry, which fuels Trianar’s massive industrial needs by strip-mining entire planets and asteroids. Even more popular,
Trade
Trianar does not currently trade with any other state, besides Calerost, being self-reliant on resources.

Military
The Trianarö Imperium Forces are known for their millennia of combat experience, creating a doctrine that is both flexible and effective in crushing those who would stand in the way of the Imperium. A common saying within Trianar is that “Our history has seen every battle.” Trianar has a specialist vehicle forces for every situation, from the most perilous mountain worlds to the deepest depths of an ocean world. The TIF, divided into the Space Force and Planetary Forces, dominates not only by sheer force of its arsenal, but by tactics, brought from the textbooks of countless conflicts large and small, and honed by the most skilled tacticians, engaging in constant wargames and simulations to ensure even during a prolonged peace that Trianar’s forces are prepared to face off against the demons and would-be enemies of the Imperö.

The Conglomerated States of Kalgyul

Overview
The Conglomerated States of Kalgyul, or CSK, is a medium sized star nation located in the galactic outskirts of the A1-0 sector. It’s a nation with relatively low technology, despite its age, and is characterized by its single sapient specie, the trrarrusian kind, and its capital planet, Kalgyul.

Culture
Trrarrusian culture is focused mainly on warfare and industry. Almost the entirety of the recruitable population works in the military of their factions, and in their spare times, they participate in sword fighting or hovercraft piloting. There’s also a strong sense of duty to defend their specie and comradie among the soldiers.

In the CSK, power and ranks can only be achieved through military or combat prowess. Many of the current leaders in the CSK arrived to their position through either raw power, or in battle victories.

Their actions are also highly influenced by the idea that, not only all highly technologically civilizations have in their best interest exterminating other lower lifeforms, but that there is a specific alien specie that is actively looking to annihilate them.

As such, they have abandoned the idea of hiding, and instead have opted for the philosophy of producing the most harm possible in case of invasion, also called the Last Resort Protocol. This doesn’t only aim to hurt the invader, but any civilizations within reach in the Sector.

Religion
In the CSK, there is no official religion, or any religion for that matter. However, trrarrusians have a wide plethora of military myths of generals, heroes and battles, even though most of them have limited information on them.

History
The history of the CSK starts with the near alien invasion of Kalgyul in 35M BBT. At that time, the planet was populated by another specie, which resorted to nuclear self destruction to avoid the settlement of the alien race in the planet.

35,000,000 years later, the trrarrusian kind had colonized the entirety of the planet, and discovered the remains of the past civilization. Since then, paranoia for a continuation of the invasion settled in the society.

Nowadays, the have reached their peak in galactic spread, and have made contact with alien species.

GALACTYAN EMPIRE



The Commerical District of Galactya, the Capital Ecumenopolis of the Galactyan Empire.

Overview

The Celestial Empire Of Galactya is an ancient Interstellar Empire located in the Center-West of Sector A1-0. The Galactyan Empire controls more than 31 thousand star systems, together with billions of smaller habitats and many megastructures. As of 0 BBT, it has a population of 81.5 trillion, the third highest in the Sector, divided between uncountable numbers of species. For convenience, the many Galactyan species are often considered as just one, and referred to as “Galactyans”.

Throughout the Empire, many ISO Nodes can be found, ranging from small computronium clusters to giant megastructures like Jupiter Brains and Matryoshka Swarms. These megastructures either host the Empire’s civilian virchworld, important communication nodes or transapient intelligences, including Godlings and Archailects.

The Capital of the Galactyan Empire is the homonymously named planet of Galactya in the binary Crus-Lux system, the most populous ecumenopolis in the Sector, numbering at 7.6 trillion citizens.

An Economic, Political and Industrial Superpower, the Galactyan Empire is widely considered to be the central member of the Coalition Of United Stars (COUS) a powerful supranational alliance consisting of 6 other nations.

The Empire is strongly terraformist, and favours building many habitable habitats and megastructures to maximise opportunities for life. The Empire is very centered around technological advancement, and while highly experimental, it takes utmost care not to create unnecessarily dangerous situations that might spiral out of control.

The Galactyan Empire is heavily xenophilic, interventionist and peaceful: however, if it or one of it’s allies is threatened, Galactya will not hesitate to attack aggressively with it’s full might.



Kinisian Zoetrope

A Kinisian Zoetrope: movement and change are the foundations of their culture and ideology.

Culture

Many vastly different cultures exist, thanks to the Empire giving it’s worlds, habitats and megastructures a high degree of autonomy over their cultural and social development. However, all cultures share the Core Galactyan Principles, with the Principle Of Equality being the one that the Empire is willing to impose with force.

Many cultures originating from alien nations and their Galactyan sects have gained large traction between the population, brought into the Imperial Culturescape by immigrating groups and clades.

These immigrating cultures all have basic principles and core ideologies that are similar to the Core Galactyan Principles: if they do not, they will either mutate over time to better fit with Galactyan society or, if the difference is too great, will be expelled from the Empire.

There are rumors that the Empire employs it’s transapients to memetically manipulate certain groups in order to change their culture into something more fitting for Galactyan Society; however, none of these rumors have been confirmed thus far.



Elemmírë, the temple complex center of all Visten Religion.

Religion

Like with it’s cultures, religions in the Galactyan Empire are many, and vastly different between one another. While very few species of the main Galactyan Clade are religious, many other Clades have developed their own religions, with alien Clades and immigrants bringing their own beliefs with them.

Many religions originating from alien nations and their Galactyan sects have gained large traction between the population, brought into the Imperial Religiouscape by immigrating groups and clades. Oftentimes, a culture will have it’s own religion attached to it; other times, religions themselves are subsects of a culture that assumed more spiritual and religious traits over time.

In a similar manner to cultures, religions usually have basic principles and core ideologies that are similar to the Core Galactyan Principles: if they do not, they will either mutate over time to better fit with Galactyan society or, if the difference is too great, will be expelled from the Empire.

While Galactya doesn’t have an official one, many religions have become “Protected” by the Empire.

History

The Galactyan Empire is one of the oldest nations in the Sector- the third oldest in fact - so much so that most contemporary civilizations were well into the neolithic or bronze ages when the Empire was founded 9700 years ago.

Early Galactyan History - all the way from the Foundation of the Empire to the First Interstellar War - was characterized by continuous secessions and attempts to create independent states separate from the Empire. However, after the external pressure from the First Interstellar War, the state unified completely, and remains unified to this day.

Apart from the first contacts with the Melaneans and the Ulnuib, the Empire remained completely isolated for most of it’s history, only starting to become aware of the rest of the Sector 340 years ago, with the first contact with Calerost.

The mass stream Starlifting Ring around Jellanoche lifts incredible amounts of light and heavy elements from the star, which are then collected back into the ring and the surrounding Jenkins Swarm, where they are used for manufacturing.

Economy

The Galactyan Empire is a State Socialist Autotopia, a class of post-scarcity socioeconomic system in which all resource extraction and production, manufacturing and construction are handled by autonomous non-sapient AIs with Governmental modosapient and transapient oversight. This, combined with Galactya’s very advanced technology and infrastructure, gives the Empire access to an enormous amount of resources and energy.

While hard labor is basically non-existent (with very, very few exceptions for the structures that were actually built for modosapient work presence), many citizens work for variable intervals (some years, some decades or even some centuries) in the thirtiary sector, as well as in Imperial Administration.

Despite the Empire’s policy of State Socialism, certain areas (cities, worlds or even star systems) are intentionally excluded from this policy to ease international trade with capitalist nations: these special economic zones are commonly known as Non Coercion Zones, abbreviated to NoCoZo.

Trade

Even while having more resources than it actually needs, the Galactyan Empire has built an extensive trade network with many nations across the Sector, from the neighboring Calerost and Ferristia, to the distant Ryccian Empire and Rehy.

The Empire has meticulously acted as an intermediary for international relations between it’s allies for centuries, and has carefully made it so that all trade routes between the members of the Coalition Of United Stars pass through itself, effectively becoming the biggest trade nexus in the Sector.

Emblem of the Galactyan Armed Forces.

Military

The Galactyan Armed Forces are divided into four service branches:

  • the Imperial Star Navy
  • the Imperial Air Force
  • the Imperial Surface Force
  • the Imperial Marine Force

Galactyan ships are, on average, the biggest ships in the Sectors, going all the way up to 65 kilometers in size. What the Galactyan Star Navy lacks in number compared to other star nations (only having 165k ships as of 0 BBT), it makes up in quality and armament: almost all military ships (except for the smallest ones) have a double layer of shielding and a ridiculous amount of diverse weaponry, even on more specialized ships.

The Sub-Orbital forces of the Galactyan Empire are also enormous: planetary invasions and surface or atmospheric operations are carried out by a wide array of pseudo-sapient automated units, diverse in their functions and size. They act as every unit an army would need, from infantry to artillery to shielding.

The Industrial might of the Empire also allows them to build ships and mass produce sub-orbital units at staggering speed, making them capable of healing from even great losses in relatively short time.

Grand Comissariat of Enver

Overview

The Grand Comissariat of Enver is a medium sized nation in the north-west of the sector. It has a population of 63 trillion, divided between 6 different species. Very high, considering its young age in comparison to most nations. Its capital is located on Enver, an Ecumenopolis.

Most of the Comissariats administration and technological development is being carried out by a very powerful AI Æriel. It is housed in a Matryoshka brain and several planetary computers. Its existence is being kept secret from everyone, but the highest Envari officials.

The Comissariat is a totalitarian nation, with the appointed Grand Comissar having absolute authority. Several different factions fight for influence, but the Comissar is the ultimate authority, able to even bend the Ideology.

The Comissariat is highly xenophobic and isolationist, enslaving several species and maintaining limited diplomatic contacts with other countries in the sector. The current government tries to establish a block of satellite states to counter influence of the COUS.

Culture

Envari culture is closely tied to the Ideology, with most works of art adhering to it, due to extensive censorship. Anything alien is highly resented, with Envari being regarded as superior. Slavery of xeno races generally is regarded as the natural course of things, with a minor opposition calling for expanded rights for xenos, but still as the lower strata.

The government provides for the entire Envari population, which lives in prosperity and decadence. Only a small portion of them works, as their payment receiving influence and power.

The Envari do not utilize body language, instead using pheromones to signify their emotions.

Each slave planet has its own culture, sometimes several. They are very diverse, based mostly on the planets climate, types of industry and the species past.

Religion

Though officially the Comissariat is atheist and strifes to wipe out any religion, the Ideology has started to resemble a de facto cult, with the Comissar being presented as a near divine figure with an extensive cult of personality.

Most slave planets have their own system of beliefs, some even treating Envari as gods.

History

Most of early Envari history has been unfortunately lost to time. The oldest known record is from around 3300 years ago. Envari civilisation began as a number of one system states.

They all united into the Comissariat 3175 years ago, after a victorious war with a large and technologically advanced Terran nation of unknown origin, the Colonial Directorate of the Galactic Union.

By 3000 BBT Enver managed to conquer all remaining nations in its region, remaining in undisturbed isolation until 0 BBT, when a wave of first contacts presented the Comissariat with a completely new challenge.

Now they try to navigate the complicated political web of the sector, while preparing for the inevitable war with the Coalition

Economy

The Comissariat uses a centrally planned economy, redistributing the resources produced by slaves between the Envari and uses them for various construction projects.

Its economic output is comparable to most other nations in the sector, allowing them to construct massive projects in relatively low time.

Trade

The Comissariat engages in minimal trade with the Scientific Directorate of Rosecordia and the Akropii Republic, but they are mostly symbolic, representing the relations between them.

Military

Envari military is not divided into branches, with the Army and the Airforce being under the command of the Navy. The Political Officers, serving as a secret police, spy agency and diplomatic corp, have a certain degree of influence over the military.

The military is composed of a small amount of multirole equipment and units, which utilise high energy plasma weaponry (hot particle beams) and Stormaker particles (they cause damage to materials on the atomic level and work as an EMP).

The ground forces are composed mostly of semi-sapient droids, capable of complex situational analysis and adaptation to all known military tactics, while maintaining coordination between units. There is also the Black Guard, elite Envari super soldiers. They are more of organic machines than sapient beings, due to their complete lack of any emotions and complete obedience.

THIUCARRO HEGEMONY

Overview
The Thiucarro Hegemony is an expanisonist empire located in the eastern parts of sector A1-0. It is located in the Regunessian Expanse, named after the star of Regun. It’s capital is located in the planet of Thiucarr, with other major settlements located in Thiudann, Garik, Nemnos, U’kurk, among others. The nation is home to nearly 28 trillion inhabitants, with around 38% being the ruling Thiucarri, which constitutes 95% of the empire’s elite ruling class

Culture
The culture of Thiucarro can be divided into two, the high culture and the low culture

The high culture refers to the culture of the ruling elite, the Thiucarri. Centered mostly on power, expansion, and dominance. This culture also brings ideas such as Thiucarri superiority and brought the implementation of a caste system. Despite this, Thiucarri culture also emphasizes the need to balance their relations with the low cultures in order to create stability and lasting peace. These developments made the caste system a surprisingly adjustable caste system, where one can rose to the ranks by showing their worth (though, non Thiucarri cannot achieve the highest caste)

The low cultures refer to other cultures present in the hegemony. Due to the term being used to encompass all non Thiucarri cultures, the low cultures cannot be described in general terms. Different cultures practice different practices, and many would divide themselves once again into different clans

Religion
While there are many religions practiced by the peoples of the Thiucarro Hegemony, the Thiucarri themselves practice a form of solar worship in the form of Regunism. Regunism believes in the solar deity of Regun, which manifests himself as the star of Regun. Other lesser gods also appear in Thiucarri religion in the form of a pantheon of gods, with these lesser gods being mostly gods from the non Thiucarri religion, which were incorporated into Regunism to help with the expansion of the religion. Despite having many gods, the Thiucarri themselves only worship Regun, who they see as the Allfather of Gods, and most of the non Thiucarri practicioners usually favor worshiping their own deity, some worship their deities alongside Regun, some worship their deities only, some worship their deities while simply recognizing Regun’s role in the pantheon

History
The Thiucarro Hegemony began as a spacefaring nation thousands of years ago, when the Thiucarr peoples discovered spaceflight. This slowly morphed into colonization of nearby moons and inhabitable planets, before expanding even further to encompass modern day Thiucarro. The teachings of Regunism also propelled the Thiucarri to expand and destroy fake gods, however this ultimately led to several wars with other spacefaring nations in the region. After years of bloody conflict, the Thiucarri’s proclaim the Thiucarro Hegemony

Economy
The Thiucarro Hegemony practices a state-monitored economy, where the state itself has stakes in the market. This comes in the form of several state-owned businesses. Private corporations are allowed to exist, however constantly monitored by the state and are to follow state regulations. Public companies must have 20% of their stocks owned by the government. Small and medium businesses surprisingly flourish in the nation, thanks to the government-sponsored entrepreneurship program to increase the entrepreneurship of the people of Thiucarro. Nonetheless, these businesses are also under subject of constant monitoring, and must follow state regulations.

Trade
The Thiucarro Hegemony maintains small trades with their neighbors, and even their longtime enemies. The Thiucarro Hegemony trades with some members of the Sapphire Commonwealth after the two came into a peaceful agreement for trade, mostly foods and goods. Thiucarro also trades with the ZHC, and is known to sell political enemies alongside dangerous criminals to the ZHC in return for cash or goods

Military
The culture and history of Thiucarri made the military a primary focus of the Hegemony. It is made up of three branches, the Grand Army, the Grand Navy, and the Reserve Corps. The Grand Navy is the most prestigious of the three branches, while the Reserve Corps is the least prestigious. Another unofficial branch is the Imperial Guards, which serves to protect the Grand Despot, the leader of the hegemony. Another unofficial branch is the Institutional Corps, which is made up of several paramilitaries owned by government ministries and institutions (example, the Ministry of Safety, Security and Order has the Military Police, the Ministry of Outside Affairs has the Diplomatic Guard Corps, one of the state-owned companies, Thiucarrgo, maintains an Anti-Piracy Force to prevent piracy, and so on)

ALLIED STATES OF ALVIRA

Overview
Allied States of Alvira is an interstellar nation located in the distant corner of the Sector. This young nation was born out of an alliance of nation-states in 371 BBT and is very sparsely populated, with only 18 trillion residents within a territory that encompasses almost 30,000 star systems.

Culture
Two main species comprises the Alliance; Alviran Terrans and Valtorans. Alvirans hold an indifferent view towards foreigners and generally went along well with newcomers as long as they kept the peace. Amongst themselves, though, Alvirans held conservative values, including familial and traditional values. Most Alvirans are quite religious. Valtorans have their own separate cultural heritage, and are socially more rigid. Most Valtorans are monarchist, and are attached to old monarchies that has now spread across the Allied territory.

Alviran government is marked by a gridlocked political system, and an expansive, bloated, and corrupt bureaucracy trying to circumcise the gridlocked politics with redundant and sometimes contrarian protocols.

Religion
The United Church is the biggest religious institution, and one of the most influential group within Alviran politics. The Church is decentralized, but has common tenets, predominantly in supporting altruism and civic responsibilities. Some parts of the Church sometimes took the role of activists, standing up against corruption or greedy mega-corporations.

History
The Alliance was formed in 371 BBT to deal with a crisis following the collision of an asteroid that nearly wiped out all life in the original Alviran homeworld, the terrestrial moon Alvira. The event also prompted the disparate nation-states of Alvira to pursue interstellar travel, beginning the Century of Exploration.

In 252 BBT, an incident between Valtoran military and a fleet of Alviran colony ships led to the death of a billion settlers and started the Decades of Horrors. Valtiran ships managed to ravage several colonies and killed more than 50 billion Alvirans. A xenophobic Caretaker Authority managed to unite Alvira’s nation-states and defeated the Valtorans. More than 100 billion Valtorans was purged in the following decades, before the Caretaker Authority collapses in 201 BBT and the Alliance restored. A treaty of union was signed between Alvirans and Valtorans to prevent further bloodshed. A welfare system was established to help efforts for restoration.

Economy
Alvira runs a free-market economy, with its market almost completely dominated by monopolies controlled by several hundreds mega-corporations. The state provide the Basic Welfare Access, providing the barest minimum of necessities for every residents of Alvira. Most of Alvira’s economy rely on a Hyper-relay network, maintained by the government to speed up interstellar travel and reduce cost.

Trade
Alvira maintains an open trade policy. Its relatively young existence within the sector explains its lack of advanced technology to offer within the Sector-wide market.

Military
Alviran military is organized under the Allied Peacekeeping Force, and is divided between the Standing Forces and the Reservist. The Standing Forces comprises all active military personnel, and mostly consists of the Interstellar Peacekeeping Fleets, and the Terrestrial Peacekeeping Guards. The Reservist Force comprises of eight mothballed Defensive Fleet Groups, and all individuals that had undergone the compulsory conscription program, ready to be mobilized.

ZARETANIAN HOLDINGS CORPORATION

Overview
The Zaretanian Holdings Corporation, also known as the Zaretanian Corporate State or the ZHC, is a star system ran by a coalition of different corporations that operated throughout A1-0, with the intent to exploit the Zaretanian system’s resources and make profit throughout A1-0

Culture
There is no single culture in the ZHC, as everyone in the ZHC came from different corners of A1-0. However, there are certain traits

Religion
There is no single religion in the ZHC

History
The ZHC was founded when several major companies (Cordelia Intergalactic Heavy Industries, Winson-Xanders Enterprises, Umbrella Pharmaceuticals, Ridgeco Security Services, Eastern Stars Corporation, and Moth Media Entertainment) decided to form a single front company to purchase a small moon in the Zaretania System from the nation that once existed there. Due to the threat posed by Thiucarro, the nation agreed to sell the moon in return for economic cooperation and development. Eventually, the entire star nation was bought when the ruler was overthrown by the corporations, and after a military campaign, the entire system was placed under the rule of the ZHC

Economy

LENYAKEI DEMARCHY
English alt: Laniākean Republic | Kaa’awa’p: <Kaa’kaa’raxit Lan’ya’kei> | Chinese: 广天和众国 / Guǎngtiān Gònghéguó | Māori: Manapori a Ranginui | Malagasy: Demokrasia Lanitra Goavana | Arabic: جمهورية لانياكيا / Jumhuriat Lanyakya
(Note that a lot of the languages translate “Laniākea” to something like “open sky”. That’s what “Laniākea” means in Hawaiian. I spent so much time on this, it’s unhealthy.)


Overview
The “Lenyakei Demarchy” is a small power in a big, big sector. But they’re gonna make it, Tian/Allah (SWT)/Christ/all the Buddhas/Kawek be damned.

Humans are Humans. Kapahen are anthro East Asian dragons (“easties”) that are biologically hermaphroditic. Don’t question it. Primaly are colorful avians, but mostly corvids. Again, don’t question it. They all live together in relative harmony, and are looking forward to expand into the arbitrarily labeled sector 05. It’s past 2:30 AM here, I’m tired.

Culture
OK, try to summarize Humanity as a whole. When you’re done, try doing that for two other completely alien species. When you’re done, submit it as a size-12 Times New Roman double-spaced document (paper or PDF), and I will take it from you and promptly throw it away to show you how I feel when I write stuff like this.

Religion
Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, and Chinese folk religion all had to adapt to the fact that they were no longer in contact with Old Earth. For Muslims, it meant praying to the general direction of the Milky Way galaxy, once they had enough images to find it. Ancestor worship continues as usual, and even becomes a folkway within the Human sphere as a whole - because it turns out family means a lot when you’re millions of lightyears away.
((OOC: I ain’t workin’ on the Kapahen and Primaly religions, because I’m tired.))

Politics
Because of a relatively easy cross-cultural syncretization phase, single-species supremacy is not in the mainstream. This doesn’t mean one’s species has no effect on one’s general social circles - like still attracts like. But no, other identities play a major role - especially political ideologies. Let’s talk about that, shall we?
The major political factions are:

History
It depends on who’s telling the story.

Human
In the year 1440 BBT (but also the 4th of June, 2296, or 229 Guangtian Era, 1274 Hijri calendar - WHATEVER), the notion of a colony ship from another space and time is copy-pasted into a G2V star system, with a handful of habitable planets and moons.
The Human colonists settle on the second planet from the sun, and name it “Meihua” (Chinese plum trees blossom at the end of winter, symbolizing a beauty both fragile and resilient). Their technology temporarily dips out due to lack of proper infrastructure, but they soon recover their footing and unite under the banner of the “Commonwealth of Meihua” in 132 BBT. Completely oblivious to the hyperwar going on.
Little do they know, there are two more presences in the system.

Kapahen
The Kapahen evolve naturally on the warm ocean moon of “Harunet”, in the outer system. As communication between islands and archipelagos is hard, many of their original cultures are preserved. Once the printing press and the Internet pop into existence, however, things immediately take off. Unification remained an issue until the Kapahen remembered synthesized conlangs existed. The “Harunet Harmonious Federation” took off in 105 BBT.

Primaly
The Primaly are a species that resemble colorful anthropomorphic birds; they exhibit traits of all avians, but closely resemble corvids. Like the Kapahen, their homeworld “Chenlun” is a moon of the gas giant “Chimaka”; unlike the Kapahen, Chenlun is mountainous and dry. History progressed slowly for the flocks of Primaly, as agriculture was hard and infrastructure even harder. But they eked out an honest life.
While native cultures bloomed, many have adopted elements from both the Kapahen neighbors and the distant Humans, which came alongside water shipments and industrialization.

Unification of the Lenyakei system under the Lenyakei Demarchy only happens in 44 BBT, with the advent of the Zhao-Rakoto-Xomane FTL methods linking everyone and everywhere together.

Economy
Regulated-market capitalism, with a heavy emphasis on welfare and education and wealth-distribution. There. You happy?

Military
The Armed Forces of the Lenyakei Demarchy are the main monopoly of state violence, which is split into the Army, the Bluesky Navy, the Blacksky Navy, and the Air Force. For the groupings of ships, Bluesky uses “Fleet” and Blacksky uses “Constellation”. A group of Air Force planes is called a “Flight”.

Stoinian Star Kingdom

Overview
The Stoinian Star Kingdom stands as a staunch & proud Terran nation characterised by an indomitable will to spread its influence across the stars. Be it through military force, unique technologies, economic prowess or diplomatic ascendancy, the Stoinian Star Kingdom is set to bring its own order to ensure Mankind’s survival in addition to form a large Terran alliance through its leadership of the Pan-Terran League. Furthermore, it also holds the commercial & diplomatic hub of Sector A1-0 known as Babylon Cincture in the Meridian System at the centre of the Tiyanki Territories.

Culture
The Star Kingdom supports nearly all forms of Terran culture except those that inhibit the general freedom of Terrans. As such, the Star Kingdom holds many Terran cultures which at times seem anachronistic compared to more progressive cultures within the Realm. It is often accepted that Stoinians have tradition written on their bones due to their general devotion to uphold traditions as it is seen as a way to preserve original Terran cultures from the original Terran homeworld. Yet, over the course of its 1,600 years history, the Star Kingdom has allowed for new cultures to manifest. Often as a mixture of multiple cultures.

To that end there are general tendencies in Stoinian culture. One of the main characteristics of Stoinians is their indomitable will & zeal to even overcome the dark void of space. This can be interpreted in multiple ways, varying from internal fear to the eventual fading of stars, as shown in Stoinian poetry. Two recurring elements are the Astral Lion and the Star of Mankind, a mythicised star constellation shaped like lion with the Star of Mankind in its eye. This star constellation has boosted morale throughout history as the Star of Mankind is the brightest star in the nightsky of the original colonies and told to hold the virtues of Mankind.

Arguably the Monarch, the High King of the Stoinians, is often compared to be a star due to their historic role of shaping Stoinian society with their significant powers. Some religions even view the Monarch as the divine holder of the Stoinian spirit. Nonetheless, the current High King, HM Andrei III Casarion, remains a prominent figure politically & militarily.

At the core, the Star Kingdom was founded to preserve and spread Mankind’s wings. Every Terran in the Star Kingdom is expected to uphold the virtues of Mankind by adhering to the Seven Pillars of Mankind: Perseverance, Versatility, Tradition, Order, Duty, Amity & Liberty. Although xenophobic tendencies persist due to a deeply entrenched history in conflicts, the Star Kingdom is increasingly becoming more tolerant of xeno species with the incorporation of the Csin Palatinates, Empire of Kontaurius & Kalrathi Dominion.

Furthermore, every Stoinian is expected to be able to defend himself & Mankind. This has resulted in unique policies such as military training during PE classes at school, special reservists status & entrenchment of wider Stoinian Creed.

Religion
Despite tendencies of advanced civilisations to become irreligious, the vast majority of the Stoinian population practices some form of spirituality. Most dominant are the old religious from Terra which have been reformed to cater to the norms deemed necessary after the War at Home. Though it should be noted that new religions glorifying adversity or star light have sprung up in the past five centuries.

History
The Star Kingdom was forged by a brutal war which saw Mardakii nomads invade and terrorise the Terran population on their new homeworld known as the War at Home. This brutalisation & pursuit of extinction heavily marked the Terran colonists and vowed to never allow their nation to fall to the threats from the Dark Void.

After a cultural & economic consolidation period, the Star Kingdom eventually sprawled to the stars and began its quest to impose its order over the lawless areas of space it inhabited. This saw it clash with various xeno star nations through various strifes and even crusades against the Mardakii. The Royal Star Navy became culturally important due to these frequent conflicts and has become one of the most prestigious navies of the Sector.

However, the Star Kingdom would suffer losses, losing roughly a fifth of its population in the Velutarian War sparked by the assassination of the previous High King. Under the leadership of Regent MacArthur, the High General won the sixteen years long conflict and saw the reformation of the military into a self-sufficient organisatoon free from civilian oversight. This war saw the rise of experimental technologies, docrrines & war heroes that continue to shape the Star Kingdom to this day.

In contemporary times, the Star Kingdom has taken a more lenient approach towards xenos. So much so that it has formed formal partnerships with the Treecuu Star Empire, Ryccian Empire & Drakari Celestial Imperium, transforming its diplomatic corps into one of the finest in the Sector.

Economy
The economy of the Star Kingdom is fuelled by the free market and business accumen of its population. Through a robust financial, agricultural & manufacturing sectors, the Star Kingdom’s citizenry largely lives poverty-free. Stoinians are noted to harvest resources even from the most inhospitable places ranging from founding sky cities on gas giants to forge complexes on molten worlds to accelerate technological development.

The most notable areas in which the Star Kingdom excels compared to other star nations are ship manufacturing, finance & terraforming.

Trade
Increasingly, the Star Kingdom is seeking to expand its influence also through interstellar trade as can be seen by their pursuit of trade routes to connect their core worlds with the Ryccian Empire & Drakari Celetial Imperium through the Tiyanki Territories, Weissersteiner Empire & Tarassian Union. Increasingly, large merchant fleets have begun to travel to exotic star nations in search of commercialising any goods of value and thus increase the wealth of the Star Kingdom.

Military
Perhaps the most unique facet of the Star Kingdom is the organisational separation of the military from civilian institutions. The Stoinian Armed Forces are thus run entirely self-sufficient & independent from the civil government. It’s tasked with not only the protection of the Star Kingdom, but also Mankind as a whole with the Stoinian Monarch serving as the Lord Protector of Mankind. This protectiveness of Mankind can be seen in the independence guarantee & military detachment to the Union of Emerald, Dunedari Free-Standing & Kezimite Kingdom.

This has allowed the military to fully develop itself in whatever ways it sees fit. Ingenuity became a central driver ranging from technological innovation to continuous revision of tactics. As such the Star Kingdom remains a heavily militarised star nation with a prestigious navy that is seen by many as a benchmark. Yet even its ground forces have gained much renown in recent conflicts.

TREECUU STAR EMPIRE

Overview
The Treecuu Star Empire (TSE) or more correctly the Star Commonwealth is a young star nation that is located near the centre of sector A1-0. Formed in the aftermath of what is commonly called the Great Calamities in 240 BBT that nearly resulted in the extinction of the Treecuu peoples, the star nation has expanded rapidly in a bid to achieve peace and stability through dominating other civilisations that are unable to resist. The state maintains and strict isolation policy and interactions with other nations and peoples in the sector are limited. Contacts with the Stoinian Star Kingdom is a notable exception.

The society is highly segregated. Only members of the original two Treecuu races (an amphibian mammalian and an insectoid species native to the planet of Ecteen) enjoy full citizenship and are free to roam the entire extent of Treecuu territory and participate in elections. No member of the other so-called subject species may leave their home worlds or conduct interstellar communications. The subject worlds however enjoy almost complete sovereignty over all other matters. Synthetic lifeforms that have integrated high computational powers are feared by the Treecuu. Technology is therefore capped to avoid the emergence of such life forms.

While nominally a liberal democracy, much of the legislative power as well as power over foreign politics, military and industrial matters is held by the so-called Committee for the Expansion of the Empire (CEE), the true extent of which is unknown to most Treecuu. The CEE consists of the governors of the subject worlds who are appointed by the Chairman who enjoy extensive personal powers.

Culture
The Treecuu Star Empire is highly diverse and many cultures exist among subject species that are kept isolated from each other. The term Treecuu is used exclusively for the two citizen species. The Treecuu culture is rooted in liberal ideas and the common struggle of the mammalians and insectoids for survival. They are commonly atheist but generaly curious about other cultures and eager to explore the unknowns, be it space, technology, culture or literature. The Treecuu are proud of their nation, its fast achievements in space travel and perceived democratic society.

History

  • Pre-FTL and Treecuu Republic (354-241 BBT): The mammalians find the insectoids on a neighbouring planet, having survived in exile for over 200,000 years. They found a state together and invent a space folding warp drive, exploring space and settling neighbouring uninhabited worlds. They trade extensively with neighbouring cultures.
  • Great Calamities and rise of the Empire (240-7 BBT): The Treecuu Republic and its neighbours were invaded by the so-called Loo Yee, an advanced nomadic species. Some of the neighbouring nations either fell to the invading forces or accepted vassalisation, much to the detriment of their Treecuu allies. Following several pyrrhic victories, the Treecuu ejected the Loo Yee from the nation and neighbouring systems. The Treecuu felt betrayed by their neighbours and moved to secure their own survival by creating buffer zones and increasing their industrial power by taking control of former allied worlds, ultimately resulting in the formation of the CEE and today’s policy of dominating other worlds for the security of the Treecuu and internal peace among subjugated worlds.
  • Contemprary (6 BBT -): Encountering large and powerful star nations has resulted in a shift in approach to international policies, especially fearing sanctions following the violent annexation of the Aryyt’t home world. The TSE has since established diplomatic contact with several other star nations to gauge their interest in Treecuu expansionist policies and to gain international recognition of the same. Encountering its southern neighbour the Stoinian Star Kingdom that has a similar history of fighting for its survival and subsequent expansionist policies has led to the most extensive contact, integration and cooperation yet. The two powers have conducted joint exploratory missions and conquest of the Kalrathi Dominion. The TSE also brokered peace between the Stoinians and Venterrans. Diplomatic contacts and trade have however remained limited and isolationism remains at large.

Economy
The development of the Treecuu FTL technology and rapid quantum additive manufacturing has made energy and extensive production means virtually free and unlimited to all Treecuu citizens. Therefore there is no typical manufacture-resource based economy. The Treecuu mainly trade information and exotic goods that not yet have a template ready for replication.

Exports to other star nations that do not have the replication technology is more diverse, but the Treecuu are reluctant to share technology.

Military
The military of the TSE is small in comparison to peer nations. This is both due to the much smaller Treecuu population and different doctrines and technology. The Treecuu prefer to engage their enemies from afar, using guided high-velocity FTL weapons, loitering munitions and cloaking technologies. The Treecuu avoid contested planetary invasions. Deception and psycholigical warfare are also important parts of Treecuu warfare. Most of the Treecuu conventional arsenal can also be used as weapons of world destruction (WWD) due to their means of travel.

Two separate structures of military exist in the TSE. The CEE commands two different navies of long-range vessels intended for the defence of the governors’ mandates and the expansion of the empire, while the elected Treecee government commands the system defence fleets. A high degree of rivalry exists between the navies.

Conflicts
The TSE is not currently in any conflict with another star nation.

Rehy
English alt: Collected Defence Congegation

Overview
Rehy is located in the South East corner of A1-0 (map wise). Rikeuninerd are currently the only race in Rehy, they are hemaphrodits, their home planet being Ruka. Originally a military alliance made up of several nations, borders now are mostly irrelevant, forming easily governable states. Military power remains a priority to Rehy, having 1.5 trillion personelle and 448’002 ships.

Culture
Rehy holds many different Rikeuninerda cultures. Across all Rikeuninerda cultures, there is a lack of materialism, environmental protection is viewed as vital, knowledge is seen as a great power, and military tradition is heavily honoured. Many cultures live underground, a practice that can be seen on inhabited planets, and due to dietary requirements fishing culture is large.

Some notable cultures:

  • Dysysya are heavily nomadic and upon entering space continued to be so.
  • Dysysya and Scaa are both pacifist, there religion opposing military action.
  • Kusua culture is a complicated mix of different Scayikraa cultures, taking religion from Dysysy nomads but having military traditions like Screea. Kusua also do not consume fish, but read meat.
  • Scu do not live underground, they have a strong worriers attitude and wear white head gear to oppose theocracies.

Religion
Religion is not mandated in Rehy and no national religion is recognised, however Kusu is a democratically elected theocracy, and puts Scayiaa as a national religion. Scayiaa is practiced by 21% of Rehy’s population, mostly by individuals from Scayikra and Kusu.

Scayiaa is an ancient religion, originating from Scayikra at 50’000 BBT. The religion has many sects, but across all it’s said that habitable deserts are sacred “scar lands” and for as long as someone believes in Scayiaa the Gods will exist.

History

9’543 BBT: Screea forms Rehy
8’989 BBT: Reik did a dumb, Rak Reik diplomatic ties severed
8’434 BBT: Rak Reik sends up a space station to orbit Ruka
7’202-7’153 BBT: Cold War
7’165 BBT: interdimentional FTL is invented
7’153 BBT: Third Ssca War, mass amount of nations join Rehy
7’149 BBT: Ra da Kur joins Rehy
7’148 BBT: Ra da Kur collapses
7’036 BBT: Koo forms the union Kooa ra da Rakara under Rehy
6’998 BBT: Reik content unites as Kuk-kik, Kuk-kik joins Rehy
3’944 BBT: antimatter propulsion is invented
1’932 BBT: Kusu joins Rehy, Kusu becomes responsible for scrapping military assets
0 BBT: first contacts with Akropii Republic and Galactya

Economy
Rehys economy is dominated by workers unions, regulations are created by unions and mandated by the government. All workers have close relations where bartering is used to exchange goods, and they are ‘paid’ in housing and food. Each union is made of smaller unions, their structure being similar to a military unit organisation.

Rehy’s unions consist majorly of fishing, arms, and mining industries. Scrapping plays a large part in Rehys economy as recycling is a prevalent practice. Art of any form is most commonly used to barter.

Trade
Rehy imports weapons from Galactya and exports art. Due to the tight networking of Rehys unions creating trade deals in other areas has been difficult.

Military
Rehy’s military is unique as individual agencies and branches are controlled by different defence organisations. Structuring Rehy like this allows each defence organisation to focus on a specific role. The following work together to form Rehy’s military:

Screea’s Defence Organisation is responsible for the Defence Defence, Rehy’s armed force, and Screea Intelligence Agency.
Kusu’s Defence Organisation is responsible for Kusu Defence Specialised Scrapping, who scrap military assets. They are non combat.
Kuk-kik’s Defence Organisation is responsible for Civilian Defence, an agency that deals with civilians in dangerous situations. The Civilian Defence also deploys diplomats and provides humanitarian aid.

The Defence Defence relies off there superior adaptability for a tactical advantage, ships are also heavily armed with a variety of weapons. Rehy’s territory is scattered with military bases of varying size, said bases (also ships) have automated scanners that of scan anything unfamiliar within 110km of them.

Conflicts
Rehy is currently not involved in any conflicts, but was involved in The Third Ssca war and was formed because of the Yeea conflict.

Common Republic of Colestia

Overview
The Common Republic of Colestia is a star nation situated in the far north of Sector A1-0. Though it occupies a somewhat large amout of space, most of it is only beginning to be colonized and developed. The most important part of the nation lies near its western border, near and around the capital - the Luxa Magna system. It operates semi-direct democratic government system, and there is no definitive “head” of the nation, it instead being ruled by councilf of individuals elected every 2-5 years. Perhaps its most unusual and standout characteristic is its pacifistic nature - the nation posesses no military force and tris its best to stray away from conflict.

Culture
Colestian culture largely centers around individuality, expresson, equality, and acceptance. Vibrant displays of art in all kinds of forms can be seen almost daily in most corners of the nation, most people respect each other and treat each other as equals, and discrimination or xenophobia is amlost unheard of.
People, having manual and industrial labour done for them completely by automatons, can live freely and comfortably without working on an income to sustain themselves. Nevertheless, many still choose to pursue careers in art, science, or entertainment, either to live a more luxurious life, for a sense of purpose, or some other reasons.

Religion
Religion as a whole doesn’t play a large part in the nation as a whole, but it is noteworthy that Colestia has a very diverse population if it comes to beliefs. No religious majority exists, no majority constitutes more than 1% of the population, aside from atheism, which accound for roughly 7%. It goes without saying that religious worship and constructing holy sites is fully allowed, as long as the beliefs which they represent aren’t harmful or discriminatory.

History
Colestia is one of the oldest nations in the sector, tracing its beginnings back to 17 532 BBT. This however doesn not mark the beginning of a grand celestial nation, but rather an ancient era organized empire.
This nation, known as the High Kingdom of Colestia, waged a grand war from its earliest days against another empire, one built by a different species, the Ventari. This constant conflict shaped culture, society, technology, and all other aspects of life in Colestia untill around 15 000 BBT, when it ended in a large scale nuclear escalation, which almost completely wiped out the Ventari.
After that, the monarchy was abolished and replaced by a democratic parlimentary system. Now free of competition or war, the new Republic thrived, advanced, and expanded. This peaceful and prosperous period lasted for millenia, with the nation choosing not to expand beyond its home system out of simple lack of necesity.
The end of that era would be marked by the launch of the deep space colonization program, initially around 37 BBT for nearby systems, and 0 BBT for further ones.
The nation hasn’t discovered any alien civilizations until its first contacts with Enver and Galactya in 0 BBT.

Economy
**The Colestian economy runs on a government regulated semi-free market. Property can be privately owned, and an individual’s wealth can be measured directly, but all buisnesses and corporations are state owned (albeit privately run, as anybody is free to open a buisness under their direction, just not owned by them). There is also an upper limit on how much wealth one individual can posess combined, counting possesions and property.
The state also runs many welfare programs, including a very high BUI (basic universal income), which can comfortably sustain an individual without the need to work (though working will lead to higher income, and therefore allow for a more luxurious lifestyle).
Industrial and rular resources are obtained from the strip-mining of asteroids and planets done by non-sentient machines, and the processing of those resources is made easy by the relatively high level of technology Colestia posesses.

Military
Colestia, as previously mentioned, does not have a standing army, navy, or any other sort of military.
