History and background
In 447 this otherwise unremarkable planet was the site of a major lanthanum strike. Although most of the ore was quickly worked out, political power remains with the dozen family owned mining houses. These houses maintain their control through domination of the Prospector's League, the systems only legal political party.
Disputes between the houses are normally settled peacefully, but are in constant competition for commercial advantage. The greatest part of the houses' prospecting and exploration activity has shifted to the colony system of Irlu (Dagudashaag 2415).
Although life for most citizens is sedate and comfortable, the Prospector's League perpetuates the myth of Gakhir as a world of hardy, roving space miners.
