History and background[edit]

Murkians are fierce democrats, with a wide variety of opinions and attitudes. As a result every level of government is directly elected, consequently ineffective, and often corrupt. One common attitude amongst the electorate is the dislike of violence, to the point of inaction. Although the frequent elections make 'campaign fever' an everyday occurrence, political violence is unheard of. Unscrupulous off-worlders have been known to use violence in taking advantage or Murkians, with the result the average citizen is highly fearful of any direct dealings. The myriad of elected officials often see their duty as protecting voter and any off-worlder will have to deal with numerous petty regulations. A lack of consensus within the government has so far prevented the establishment of the extrality zone around the surface port. This discourages landings unless absolutely necessary. The orbital port has a large contingent of 'enabling agents' who deal with the locals on behalf of visitors, for a fee. Although not a legal requirement, falling foul of regulations can be time-consuming and expensive, so the agents are popular.

Imperial High Nobility[edit]

Mukira, as a member world of the Third Imperium has a member of the Imperial Nobility overseeing the world.

World Starport[edit]

Mukira has a routine quality starport.

  • A Class-C Starport Facility has minimal if any shipyards and can only perform extremely limited repair work.
  • This facility has many very skilled personnel who can perform surprisingly sophisticated repair work despite the limited facilities.
  • This facility has refueling infrastructure and limited refining capabilities. One may purchase unrefined fuel here.
  • Starports of this class rarely have both a Lowport and a Highport.

The starport manager has managed to gain a consensus between several agencies and managed construction of a high capacity loading dock on the surface installation. Unfortunately, the vested interests of the enabling agents and the surface-to-orbit transport companies prevent too much cooperation for the use of the ground port.
