History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Iouo is a high population, industrialized water world in the Iouo Subsector of Magyar.

  • The system is a member of the Solomani Confederation and contains a naval base.
  • Iouo was formerly the capital of its subsector.
  • An escalating war of economics and ideologies between it and Havaiikii (Magyar 0523) seemed likely to ruin both worlds. In 1069, sector authorities stepped in, moving the subsector government four parsecs away to Gobi (Magyar 0528), and placing both worlds under military rule.
  • A trade commission was appointed to mediate the economic disputes, but they found that the root of the war seemed instead to be in conflicting political philosophies.
  • Despite the transfer of the subsector capital, Iouo remains the most important world in the subsector.
