Ramayan (Polity) History & Background[edit]

Ramayan "The population of this state traces its origin back to certain border states of the ancient Solomani empire called "India". The bulk of these people moved here just before the Long Night. Technological development was not emphasized at the time of settlement, consequently, technical and industrial advances were slow. The people comprising the population were all of military inclination, and, thus, no outside forces ever made much headway into the region. With political consolidation and union accomplished, employment of the many military-inclined men and women was no longer possible at home. Several peoples, especially the Gurkra and Ziki, then sought employment as mercenaries off-planet. They performed so well in that capacity that their folk are still in great demand as hired soldiers. Even today, it is traditional for each young adult to serve a term in either the Ramayan military or in one of the semi-official mercenary units. Some of these units have a recorded tradition that predates the Ramayan state and an oral tradition that predates the Solomani Empire. The tone of the political policy is conservative and inward-directed. The borders of the state have not altered significantly in nearly five centuries. While not aggressive, the Ramayan have a reputation for self defense, individually and collectively. Policy towards the Imperium is neutralist. Imperial subsidies and technical assistance help the Ramayan naval forces to maintain an anti-piracy patrol. Additional monetary contributions from the Hive Federation permit patrols to range much further than would normally be possible. A mutual defense treaty with Sphere Fenix to rimward has been in force for the last three centuries." --Maranantha-Alkahest Sector Guidebook

Involvement in the Crucis Margin "Ramayan claims precisely one system in this sector and has not modified its border in this direction in over 5 centuries. Trade is not restricted but most Ramayan citizens are extremely conservative and philosophically inward directed. Political attitudes are neutralist, though friendly towards the Imperium. A mutual defense treaty with Sphere Fenix has been in force for the last three centuries." --Crucis Margin Guidebook
