Imperial High / Landed Nobility[edit]

Niirkhi, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of three members of the Imperial Nobility, who are charged with overseeing the world.

World Starport[edit]

Niirkhi has a good quality starport.

  • A Class-B Starport Facility has not very well developed shipyards and is only capable of producing spaceships.
  • This facility has many very skilled personnel who can perform not only major repair work, but overhaul work as well.
  • This facility has advanced refueling and refining infrastructure. One may purchase practically any kind of refined fuel here.
  • Almost every starport of this class possesses both a Lowport and a Highport. Such ports rarely have more than one of each kind of port.
  • Rumoured to exist within the depths of the starport base on Tarterus (world) is a Timer club, once operated by a defunct company, Future Promise Enterprises. The facility is known to have been operating in 903, prior to the closure of large sections of the base. Records indicate that the 'inhabitants' were meant to be transferred to the neighboring system of Niirkhi but there is no indication that this was ever carried out.

World Economy[edit]

The agricultural outpost of Niirkhi is geared towards the feeding of Diishalum. Although virtually all its foodstuffs are sold to its industrial neighbor, it is still does not supply enough of Diishalum's needs to have any significant economic clout. Diishalum controls the prices of its imports from Niirkhi, and by extension, the wages of the local agricultural workforce.

Through overt (and covert) pressure the industrial concerns of Diishalum have an exploitative trade agreement which sees the imports from Niirkhi purchased at prices well below the market rate and exports to Niirkhi (manufactured and processed goods) sold at a premium. The seething resentment that this foster has led to a number of protracted and costly strike actions, which in turn has further eroded Niirkhi's finances and bargaining position. A possible resolution is in sight as the government of Irphothe has recently entered into negotiations for the Niirkhi harvest, and offer 10% above the price Diishalum currently pays.
