Kaguk is an agricultural, nonindustrial world still lacking adequate means to expand its economy.

  • As an agricultural world, this world is a near-ideal environment for producing quality foodstuffs of plant, animal, and other forms. Quality foodstuffs are a major export commodity for this world.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • This world toils under the control of a military government with conditions reflecting that situation including curtailed civil rights and limited freedoms.
  • It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Sol Subsector of Solomani Rim Sector in the Domain of Sol.
  • This world has also been known as Kagukhasaggan.

History-Era: New Era[edit]

Non-canon: The population of Kaguk (B648615-C) has changed radically from the days before the Collapse. Once a backward agricultural world with a relatively small population and no industry to speak of, it has evolved into an important and influencial world in the Republic. The change began when refugees from the industrial world of Ember fled to Kaguk as the shockwave of the Collapse passed through their star system. Over the next several decades, a kind of cultural fusion took place between the folksy, hard working farmers of Kaguk and the business-oriented Emberians. New Era Kaguk is still predominately agricultural, but there is now a large merchant class that has amassed a considerable fortune in the salvage and relics industry. Kagukan merchants are renowned (and to a degree infamous) through out the rimward subsectors of the Rim as master scavengers who seemingly have the ability to produce a piece of relic technology on demand, if the price is right. The Kagukans have several salvage operations ongoing in the Sol subsector, most notably at Ember, Junction, and Nusku, where they employ large numbers of the inhabitants. They also have a major presence in the merchant colony at Barnard, which was founded originally by Kagukan merchants who desired a more "discreet" location to conduct business deals with Terran and Promethean merchants.
