History and background
Kinhe was settled by the Akan people of Ghana during the Rule of Man. The Bu'Akan live primarily on the tropical atolls that ring the planetary equator and make a living through traditional crafts and fishing the world's ocean. In 377 a colony of Scanian's including 2,000 Aquans were invited to help colonize the planetary oceans and to work with the Bu'Akan to develop ecologically safe mineral extraction of the ocean beads.
In 604 and 605, Kinhe was severely ravished by opposing naval forces during the initial chaos of the Civil War. The population retaliated by electing to opt out of the Imperium and join the fledgling Amec Trade Protectorate.
Within twenty years of joining the Protectorate the then small Amec company House of Aymara had managed to buy the entire extraction industry and had elected its own (off-world) government to run the world. One of the government's first acts was to make the planet's religion officially Universalist and to ban any other faith including the Scanian philosophy and the widespread Bu'Akan religion of Nkisi. When the local's decided to ignore the law, the Amec government declared an Inquisition backed by strict penalties for contravening the Worship Laws.
Within the year the native people had rebelled. Amec Marines arrived in force to ensure 'peace'. For the Bu'Akan and the Scanian's this meant almost 1.5 million deaths and a dictatorship run by House of Aymara. Since then the governmental structure has degraded into a highly inefficient bureaucracy.
