History and background[edit]

Kuuranse is famed as a successful low to mid tech colony, and its hard-lined environmental stance. Its authoritarian attitude in pursuit of eco-friendly policy has disturbed many outsiders but the government, under the guidance of Gen'ndar Kuulak, remains in favor with the populace.

As the population has grown the environmental laws have become more draconian. There are severe penalties for even the most (apparently to off-worlders) trivial offenses which would threaten the environmental balance. Residents and visitors are liable for high service and utility taxes. These include water and air purification system and various recycling operations, crucial to the survival of the enclosed cities.

There are a number of inhabitants of Kuuranse who have abandoned the cities for the 'Outlands'. More recently the numbers living on the outside have increased, as exile for persistent or serious offenders is becoming more common. Many of these exiles have banded together for survival, building small towns and communities. A worrying trend for the government is the Outlanders are taking to raiding each other to obtain basic necessities. The government is now constantly advertising for bounty hunters to sign up for a "Tour of the Outlands" to help curb the threats.
