Union of Harmony

The Union of Harmony is a successor state with strong ties to the Solomani Confederation.

Canon Conflict[edit]

The Union of Harmony occupies the same space that the Ulane Hierate is supposed to. See the Ulane Hoax for a possible explanation. Note that though the description of the Union of Harmony above is non-canonical, the existence of a polity with that name in the specified location is canonical.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The rimwardmost side of the Union of Harmony used to be part of the Ulane Nations, an Aslan client race of small, pastoral quadrupeds with vestigial wings that evolution has converted to manipulative digits. Their clannish society and great skill in artisanry endeared them much to the Aslan, who took them under their protection.

On the other side, corewards, the Union of Harmony used to be the Celestial League, a Solomani-derived group of colonies of mostly-but-not-exclusively chinese ancestry, which also had peaceful and trade contacts with the Ulane.

During the Border Wars, the Celestial League was annihilated and annexed by the Hierate, and, while retaining a mostly-human population, adopted a mix of Solomani and Aslani customs and cultural traditions.

As part of the Peace of Ftahalr, the Ulane Nations and former Celestial League became independent from the Hierate as the Union of Harmony. Despite its size, it's a strongly centralized state, ruled mostly from its capital at Gustave/Uhtaa (Reaver's Deep 0737), with the Ulane homeworld of Ul/Earle (Dark Nebula 0603) acting as a "secondary capital" for the rimwardmost side of the polity within the Dark Nebula sector.

Information on the Union of Harmony in the Third Imperium is currently confused and controversial because of the Ulane Hoax, a packet of updates spread through the X-Boat Network in 1101 and containing a lot of false information, including (among several other things) a description of the Union of Harmony as the "Ulane Hierate", a farcical parody of the Aslan Hierate. The hoax was promptly discovered (thanks to many glaring errors and contradictions) and its perpetrators (a small group of computer students at the University of Warinir) received heavy prison sentences, but the hoax keeps resurfacing from time to time. This has, of course, caused untold billions of credits in assorted damage to trade and shipping in the region.
