History and background[edit]

The system is owned by a cartel of mining houses based at Gakhir (Dagudashaag 2413), the Gakhir Cartel, with all decisions taken by administrators appointed from the home world. Since 1066 native-born Irlu have been pressing for a degree of self government. The reactionary mining houses resisted all demands. Over the years the protests have been peaceful, but in 1109 a leaked IISS intelligence report expressed concern about violence breaking out. Unsubstantiated media reports have also suggested megacorporations support for the Irlu home-rule movement.

The Gakhir mining houses are jealous in their ownership of the Irlu belts. Independent prospecting craft — or any ships wandering into the wrong parts of the system — are likely to be harassed by patrol cruisers of the Gakhir navy. Irlu's belts posses an above average number of asteroids, but have witnessed few rich finds in the last hundred years.
