Pieplow (Foreven E) subsector was a safe backwater for most of its history. While not very well developed, its proximity to the heavily populated Shivva Cluster created a demand for raw materials and cultivated articles, and the region has had steady though unremarkable growth through the centuries since settlement.

Description / Specifications
Nearly all of its industry was located on Pieplow itself, most of it in support of Shivva and its hi-pop worlds. Pieplow was the only industrial world in the subsector, and most of its industries were focused on harvesting, processing and refining of its massive mineral wealth for export to coreward. A few secondary parts and components manufacturies rounded out its industrial base.
The Zhodani Exodus and the shock of civil war has disrupted the normal loyalties that sustained the Zhodani Consulate. Shivva and its associated planetary governments are showing a lamentable opportunism, and are making imperial demands upon the Pieplow subsector and planetary governments. These range from demands for preferential economic treatment, to demands for loyalty to the emerging secessionary movement on Shivva. Thinly disquised greed motivates a good deal of Shivva's actions, and it has outraged Pieplow and its people. Fears that Shivva might invade, and growing industrial shortages are driving efforts to reorganise Pieplow's economy and defenses to local self-sufficiency, an effort that is slowly bearing fruit.
This independent course has dismayed the Iadr Nsobl Council. The Council is keeping the province from collapsing into chaos with white-knuckle intensity, and it has been reluctant to encourage Pieplow's policy. If it does, it fears that similar secessionary movements might take this as encouragement for their own independent action, and the province will catch and spread the war fever of the coreward regions. But Pieplows' remoteness from the main Iadr Nsobl region complicates concerted action, and problems with the 10th Fleet in neighboring Anika virtually guarantees the Pieplow will have to act according to its own needs. For the time being the Provincial Council has to be satisfied with the loyalty oaths of the Subsector Council and the 65th Fleet, and hope that things don't turn out for the worse.
Pieplow Subsector is defended by the Zhodani 65th Fleet from its base at Aflebshaql. The 65th was first formed in 1114, and only arrived here from Zhdant Sector in 1155 in the wake of the Avalar Controversy, and it has no history of military service against the Third Imperium. The fleet is strongly loyal to the Consulate government, and the recent civil strife has severly affected its morale and supply. While still able to maintain their ships and material with supplies from Pieplow itself, it will be insufficient should fighting envelop the spinward extent of Foreven. The fleet commander has done an admirable job of keeping her forces together in face of adversity and the petty intrigue waged against them by the neighboring 116th Fleet and its allies on Shivva. The Fleet has been deployed in mostly defensive positions, and a number of subsector and world military units have been called up or requisitioned as reinforcements. Many fleet personnel have relocated their families to Pieplow, or have married into local society, a signal of the fleets loyalty and commitment to defending the subsector by all means possible.
