  • As a nonindustrial world, it requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. The need to import most manufactured and high technology goods drives the price of these goods up in the open market.

  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by Aslan sophonts located in the Kilrai' Subsector of Dark Nebula Sector.

World Government[edit]

Hloa is a world under strict control of the government. However, unlike on most planets with restrictive laws, the people of Hloa are actually happy with their rulers. Years ago, the world's economy was on the verge of collapse, and crime was rampant, as was governmental corruption. Through a bloodless coup, a small group of men, mostly academicians, backed up by some high-level enforcers and army officers, ousted the old government. Since then, through the implementation of stringent controls, the economy has been turned around, crime is virtually nonexistent, and the population once more has faith in its leaders.

  • The controls placed on daily life by the oligarchy make things difficult for outsiders, and the punishments are swift and harsh. The death penalty is often invoked for any felony conviction. Because of the harsh, repressive laws, the Travellers' Aid Society has classified Hloa as a Red Travel Zone.
