Ges is a world suited to becoming an agricultural world, but with a population between 10,000 and 100,000 sophonts, but lacks the capability to produce or process sufficient resources to export its projected agricultural produce. This a low technology world with technology competency below the standard for the Subsector. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Mimu Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Ges, 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 Khiim.

History and background
Ges is an oddity in that it is a long settled world that regardless of Imperial Society and the technological advances it has made, the local population has settled for a tech level of 4 and this has not changed for at least 1,000 years. This would not be surprising if the people of Ges were Vilani in descent but is in fact mostly Solomani. The 70,000 or so people live as nomadic herdsmen on the single, equatorial continent of the world.
Until recent years Gesian tribes would remain apart calling only at the starport of there was anything they might need that the herd did not produce. The world is presently restricted to (Imperial) travellers and is currently awaiting official classification as a Red Zone.
The planet is currently gripped by intense anti-government guerrilla activity – three small ferocious groups are not only battling what passes as a government on Ges but each other, thus the world has become a gold mine for those trading in illegal arms (providing added impetus for a red zone rating). Local naval elements are in the process of establishing a blockade to prevent arms and mercenaries reaching the surface but due to lack of resources small quantities of both appear to be getting through. The reason for the fighting is not known to outsiders.
