Balzac is a poor, moderate population world with over a hundred million, but not yet at a billion sophonts in population size.

  • This world lacks the environment to expand their economy easily. This world was once settled and developed, but the inhabitants have either died off or left leaving behind the remnants of their civilization. It is a member of Regency of Deneb in the Zeng Subsector of Deneb Sector and in the Regency Frontier. This world has a nearby Regency Naval Base, capable of handling warships. This is the homeworld to Crocodile, an extinct Minor Race. 40% of the world's population is the Minor Race Sulliji.

Historical Data[edit]

In 628 Balzac was the site of the final actions of Deneb's Bad War, which was waged in the early 600s. There the 45th Imperial Fleet had tracked down the rebellious forces of Chanus Reynald Humbolt, the Duke of Vincennes and patriarch of the Humbolt family.

The Imperial force, led by Admiral Derrassemi, Count of Kaagush (Vland 2316), was composed of a Kalere class Dreadnought squadron, while the rebel force included the dreadnoughts Magaku, Luurisham, Kuyoga and their support ships. In a conclusive encounter the rebel dreadnaughts were destroyed and the Humbolt patriarch was killed in personal combat with Count Kagush on the deck of the Imperial Fleet Flagship Torrepeg.
