The Khan World League is a Pocket Empire, a tightly-controlled group of worlds all ruled from Khan (Reaver's Deep 0817).

  • The Khan World League is also known as the Grand Khanate by many.

Description[edit]

A small polity struggling to survive in the cold harsh universe, against insurmountable odds.

Goals[edit]

The Khan seeks to preserve the control they have over the worlds they have. They can ill afford any more rebellious activity. Without a class A shipyard, they have struggled to maintain their aging jump capable vessels. Rumors are they want to find an outside production facility, with which to contract for some more advanced, longer ranged designs.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Government & Politics (Leadership)[edit]

In theory the Khan is the absolute ruler, and all pay homage and loyalty to the current Khan. In reality, thick layers of bureaucracy have emerged to administer each planet. Some skeptics, question how much the Khan truly controls.

Interstellar Relations[edit]

They are from a warlike tradition, and take pride in their military prowess. Their strategic naval architecture is limited. The jump capable ships emphasize bringing the maximum number of their elite troop strength to bear, for use on the less advanced subject worlds. More recently diplomatic efforts have focused on obtaining modern starships from willing suppliers.

Technology & Trade (Economy)[edit]

Technology levels vary from TL–5 to TL–10. The small pockets of Aslan present in this polity has two benefits. Many of the elite military units have aslan warriors, and it is hoped that more advanced aslan technology maybe available if the right trade deal could be struck with a sympathetic clan.
