Elysium is a garden world with an environment conductive to most sophonts. The system has a population between 10,000 and 100,000, lacking the population to be an agricultural supplier. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Ushra Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Elysium, 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 an Imperial Scout Base, capable of handling Scout Service starships and personnel. During the Long Night this world was named Dim.

History and background
Despite its ideal conditions, Elysium has only two minor settlements. The planet is ruled over by a constitutional monarch, King Raoul III, and is a major meat exporter throughout the subsector. In recent years there has been several major disturbances concerning class' riots within the cities and visitors to the planet are advised to avoid wandering the streets without an official guide.
Elysium supports a population of 70,000 people, almost all humans of Imperial descent. They are ruled by a self perpetuating oligarchy made up of a Monarch, the Royal Family, and the members of various advisory councils. Ranged below these is a judiciary made up of peers, landowners, and trained lawyers, who both make and interpret the Laws. Below them is an extensive bureaucracy that includes the police force, the local militia and the army.
Local laws tend to cover two main areas: trade and loyalty to the Monarch. The trade Laws cover all manner of items, but are largely designed to prevent foodstuffs and the like being imported. Recently they have been modified to prevent the import of weapons. Loyalty to the Monarch is rather more difficult to define, but basically means that no member of the population may speak out against the ruling classes or may own or produce material likely to cause dissatisfaction with the present status quo. Penalties for breaking the laws tend to be harsh, and execution for treason is a commonplace event.
