Oewni is a world suited to becoming an agricultural world, but with a population between 10,000 and 100,000 sophonts, but lacks the capability to produce or process sufficient resources to export its projected agricultural produce. Government control of this world is by an external military force. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Shallows Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Oewni, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight and a baronet. Both are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. This world contains an Imperial Scout Base, capable of handling Scout Service starships and personnel. During the Long Night this world was named Zikhiirke.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Oewni was one of several worlds in Shallows to be land granted by Makhidkarun to the Universal Church of God in order to ensure that the existing colonists would be prevented in the future from 'further' rebellion against the Imperium. The system's inhabitants, primarily Lancians and Ziadd, were forcibly 'converted' to Universalism against their will and so began a dark age of religious and cultural repression that was to last for centuries.

History and background[edit]

During the period known as the Civil War, many of the native Lancian and Ziadd descendants took the opportunity to rebel against the church and eventually, after a long and bloody uprising, successfully overthrew the existing church led government. Despite partial recognition by the Imperium, Oweni is still the subject of fierce legal debate as the Universal Church (...as the government in exile) and the currant Lancian government make claim and counter claim as to which of them is the legally appointed government. The argument is made even more awkward by the fact that even today nearly 50% of the population are practicing Univeralists.
