History and background[edit]

Split into a dozen overcrowded independent states, Rukhigu has an atmosphere as tense as found on any world on the brink of war. Population and resource pressures have forced a number of the states to look off-world for a means of relief. The states of Henagal and Ias (located on the southern continent of Berakhiistuga) have co-operated to begin surveying the neighboring system of Dehkaim (Dagudashaag 1919), with a view to colonize. Their annexation of the main world has brought an aggressive response from other countries on Rukhigu. Many of the states are gearing their industries for conflict as they see war as the probable arbiter of their disputes.

Many of the numerous colonies in the system are considering independence from their parent states. The IISS station on the world is actively trying to diffuse the situation by acting as peace brokers.

Beyond the current political troubles on Rukhigu, the world has numerous trade opportunities. The competition between the countries has given rise to production of quality, and low priced, industrial and consumer commodities. Prices tend to run at ten percent less than the Imperial average; greater discounts can be obtained if one is prepared to bargain.
