History & Background (Dossier)
- Ziamr is a member of the Imperium.
Ziamr has a population of almost nine hundred million sophonts. Seven hundred million are ethnic Ziadd, the descendants of miners who first colonized the world during the heyday of the Zeda Alignment: the remainder are humans descended from wealth Solomani who settled on Ziamr at the start of the Third Imperium. The Solomani generally have money, and in many cases they have controlling Interests in large on-world businesses. Ziamr's present government is a bureaucracy, and is entirely controlled by Solomani Intersets. Ziadd are actively discriminated against, and are regarded as second class citizens.
The government's restrictions against Ziadd are harsh. Some public amenities are segregated, and in the tunnel cities there are Solomani only facilities and districts. It is fairly easy for non-Ziadd to travel to the world, but those of Ziadd descent must wait for several years and pass through endless checks and red tape. Even after this they have few rights, and can be expelled if the government deems them to be 'undesirable'. Those who express sympathy for the Ziadd can also be deported as 'disruptive elements'. The Ziamri police force is clinically efficiency and has a bad reputation with regard to sophont rights.
The Ziadd do not take this lying down. There are legal campaigns against the government's policies, and protest movements of varying sized and effectiveness. A Ziadd terrorist movement, the Khurum, has gained a massive following in the squalid slum districts, and there is an escalating cycle of repression and violence. The Solomoni themselves have found little sympathy amongst the governments of neighboring systems, and have become increasing isolated. The Red Eagles, the pro-Solomani terrorist group, has found a small but powerful following on the world.
