History & Background (Dossier)
The main exports of Vilis include warships, weaponry, and high-technology goods. Vilis Shipyards operate under a Imperial contract to produce patrol cruisers and a larger class of frontier destroyer for the open market. 
Vilis was originally settled by Sword Worlders from Gungnir (Spinward Marches 1221) -- then known as Morglay -- who named it Svavasorm. Vilis became a client state of the Imperium in 470 and a full member in 552.
Over eight billion people reside on this relatively small world, resulting in significant crowding, especially in the cities. Food is grown on planet using efficient means, but as noted the ecology is stressed by the high population and the polluted air. Additional food is imported from orbital habitats, and from other systems. A strong manufacturing base has made all of this possible despite the ecological damage it has wrought.
