Meta-History & Background
- However, the game map for the board game Imperium encompasses parts of Sol, Dingir, Capella, and Gemini subsectors of the sector, and the astrography in Imperium was carried over into Supplement 10 with a few name changes (Alpha Centauri became Prometheus, Tau Ceti became Iilike, Epsilon Eridani became Shulimik, and Epsilon Indi became Meshan).

History & Background (Dossier)
The Solomani Rim is a highly civilized area with a long history spanning several millennia.
- The Vegans are among the best known of the indigenous sophont species, having long been caught between opposing factions. Vegan society is still rebuilding and recovering from the collateral damage from the more recent Solomani Rim War.
- In more recent millennia, the Terrans moved in a number of Terragens species, including the Dolphins. Some believe that many more undiscovered Terragens lifeforms may be hidden on the many worlds of the Rim.
The following races (sophont species) are believed to have originated within this area:

Significant Sophont Demographics
(Populations 250+ million)
Race Population Type Remarks Humaniti* 1,499.9 billion Major Race (Various) Humaniti is the dominant species on the many thousands of worlds within the Third Imperium and while most humans are of Solomani, Vilani, or mixed ancestry, literally dozens of other races and sub-species of humans exist: Minor Human Races, Human Chimerae, Variant Races, ethnic groups, and nearly every other possibility imaginable. Humans are a prolific species and can be found in large numbers throughout vast tracts of both the Third Imperium and Charted Space. Vegans 0154.8 billion Non-Human Race The Vegans are a strange human-like race of arid, low-gravity, near-vacuum desert-dwellers. Their communal culture with its distinctive tuhuirs has long baffled human observers. Their society and space empire has long been a crossroads and pawn between larger major races. Aslan 0002.7 billion Major Race
- Imperial Aslan
The Aslan are a young and powerful race, united in spirit, but not in temporal power. Their often quarreling empire, the Aslan Hierate lies rimward and many Aslan have settled in the Solomani Rim, along both sides of the border. While most Aslan in the region are Imperial citizens, there are populations and enclaves of non-Imperial Aslan in residence. Dolphins 0001.7 billion Non-Human Race Dolphins, an aquatic species and variant race from Terra, were brought by the Solomani to interstellar space. They have prospered ever since and their keen astrogational skills are in high demand. Gurungans 0000.4 billion Non-Human Race The Gurungans are a pseudo-octopoidal race of aquatic hexapods, who strongly value their privacy after an initial period of exploitation by outside species. Their homeworld and colonies are largely under imperial stewardship and controls. While largely insular and isolationist, an increasing number of Gurungans have been engaging in interstellar trade and even intercultural exchanges, especially with other aquatic species with whom environmental accommodations are more easily managed.
