Akiar is a nonindustrial, pre-rich water world, which has 90% or more of its surface covered in an ocean of water.

  • As a nonindustrial world, it requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. The need to import most manufactured and high technology goods drives the price of these goods up in the open market.
  • It still lacks adequate population to expand its economy to a rich status.
  • Its economy is growing and living conditions are expected to rise in the near future barring outside forces. Government control of this world is by an external military force. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Gimushi Subsector of Empty Quarter Sector and in the Domain of Antares. Akiar, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight and a baronet. Both are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. This world contains a Scout Base, capable of handling Scout Service starships and personnel.

History and Background[edit]

Akiar is a poor, Indian-dominated world which is undergoing some political troubles This system has been ruled directly by Imperial Viceroy Madhavan Babbar since the extinction of the ancient Solomani ruling house in 978. Various families have attempted to persuade Dethwabtakebwebwakawa - Baron of Wesaswek, Duke of Lentuli and Sector Duke of the Empty Quarter - to nominate their relatives to the empty planetary throne: none has succeeded.

Abadani beliefs shape several local political philosophies, and was even the basis of a brief planetary government (925-955), despite the opposition of the local Barony. Today, Abadani remains influential in many cities and rural regions of the planet. There has also been a slight rise in technological ability, and implicitly wealth a well. Rich in food, minerals and an excellent tourist trade, one could be forgiven for thinking that Akiar couldn't possibly have any problems. Unfortunately it does. Just about every native belongs to either the Ullini faction or the Davirno faction. These are the two political parties and hated rivals. So evenly are the people divided that neither can gain a long lasting political edge over the other. Under threat of being Amber Zoned several times, Akiar rarely bothers off-worlders but there have been a few instances. Aside from this trouble though, Akiar, with almost all of its facilities existing underwater in the deep oceans, is a fascinating place to stay.

There is no established noble attached to the system- a military Imperial Viceroy acts as the system administrator and world leader. The major factions are threatening to divide into sub-factions. There is much strife attached to local religious (Hindu) and territorial controversies. The Imperial Diplomatic Corps is working to resolve the multitude of issues and tangled conflicts. Barony of Akiar: This title currently has no claimant, as the local ruling house went extinct in 978. As of 993, an Imperial Viceroy is in charge of the system, working to end a tiresome civil conflict.

Imperial High (Landed) Nobility[edit]

Akiar, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of two members of the Imperial Nobility, who are charged with overseeing the world.
