The Medurma Pact was a multi-system Confederation.

Description[edit]

The Medurma Pact was a petty state that dominated the rimward-coreward edge of Dagudashaag Sector late in the Long Night period.

History and background[edit]

In -524, an agreement signed by the governments of Medurma (Dagudashaag 2124) and Dipa (Dagudashaag 2223) established the Medurma Pact, an interstellar state which grew to cover much of what is now Pact Subsector. Fit its height, the Pact reached a solid TL-11.

The historian Bryen Colveni draws many parallels between the Pact and the 'infant’ Sylean Federation, particularly in their political and military structures, in his text "False Dawns", and suggests that the Pact had the potential to become the core of a much larger state. Its militaristic nature would, however be its downfall; after about -250, the Pact was in almost continuous conflict, particularly in the Slaver Wars with the Aakhri Empire to rimward. The state was economically overextended by the ongoing warfare, and was in decline by -10.

The Pact remained in existence, but slowing failing until the expanding Third Imperium agreed to absorb Medurma in 90.
