Historical Data[edit]

Mendan was the capital of the sector under the Vilani; it also was the coreward anchor of Vilani influence in the region, although commercial, military, and cultural activity continued on into Gashikan, along the Mendan Main. After the fall of the Rule of Man, it became a regional capital of the Second Empire of Gashikan; after the collapse of the Second Empire, Mendan and many of the worlds it administered chose instead to associate themselves with the Julian Protectorate rather than the Third Empire of Gashikan. Today these worlds form the Commonwealth of Mendan, and Mendan retains its place as the capital.

Since joining the Protectorate, a strong effort to overcome the legacy of race hatred has had some effect; increased trade with the rest of the Protectorate and Mendan's influence in this area of space have combined to spread this increased tolerance throughout the coreward areas of the sector. It is generally acknowledged that there is still a long way to go; in recent years, Mendan has actively encouraged the Menderes Corporation to take a more active stance on social issues, and many appointed positions of high influence have been awarded to Vargr and to immigrants from the rimward areas of the Protectorate, so that these people may serve as examples and encourage the spread of Human/Vargr tolerance.
