Dupusirlu is a water world with 90% or more of its surface covered in an ocean of water. The system has a population between 10,000 and 10 million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. This world is designated an Amber Zone with an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions make it dangerous to visitors. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Kuriishe Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Dupusirlu, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world.

History and background[edit]

The Family Gagnii has ruled Dupusirlu for hundreds of years, from the capital city of Shaszu on the one sizeable island in the World Ocean. They derive a sizeable personal income from their Imperial Monopoly on the export of water to the nearby desert world of Negev (Dagudashaag 2714), and the import of rare plants in return. Gagnii-Shaszu sells the plants, at considerable profit, to pharmaceutical companies. Other citizens of Dupusirlu work in the combines processing seaweed for the Company, or fish. The Family runs a small fleet of 50,000-tonne Jump-1 water-tankers to support its monopoly.

The TAS, under the following Advisory Notice classes the planet as an Amber Zone: Visitors are confined to the Starport region unless special permits are obtained from the Gagnii-Shaszu Company. It is a Civil Offence, similar to libel elsewhere, to comment unfavourably on anyone’s personal income or wealth; the ruling family habitually use this and similar measures to suppress comment on their rule. It is classed as a serious Criminal Offence to try to break the Water Monopoly over Negev, or otherwise interfere in the Water trade, and anyone found to be contravening the monopoly may be imprisoned or executed.

A TL–12 Mercenary battle force is maintained to enforce this. Dupusirlu is one of the few worlds still employing Negevian mercenary soldiers for desert operations on the Negev home world.
