History & Background (Dossier)
Fay Freeworld is unique in Gushemege for being a world whose sole purpose is trade. Historically Fay grew to importance through victualling passing ships and being the only J-1 link between the worlds of the Vilani Main and those of the heartland. Fay soon saw that its position was a double edged sword, in times of peace it could make a fortune from trade, but in times of war it became of strategic importance.
- In -5385 the first Freeworld Declaration was made that prohibited armed ships of any type from entering the system, but which allowed free passage to any other craft of any power. During the wars of the Ziru Sirka, the Rule of Man, the Long Night and the Third Imperium Fay has remained a member of the Freeworlds Signatorate, often being used for exchange of prisoners of the signing of truces.
- During the Civil War the IISS decided to "guarantee" Fay's status by basing an unarmed Squadron there, despite the fact that the conflict was light years away. IISS claimed that they made the move because population decline on Fay was so great that the world could no longer properly man its SDB squadron, and so guarantee its own freedom. The population of Fay is highly inbred and off-worlders are very rarely granted resident status. The Fay families, or Burrkers, date back millennia, but increasing genetic problems have indeed put the whole of the population's survival in doubt.
