Abuish is a rich world.

  • As a rich world, this planet has high-grade living conditions and is highly sought after by immigrating sophonts.
  • Some of the sources of this world's wealth are well known, but others remain a mystery. Many speculate on these mysterious sources of wealth. Some even investigate them... to no avail yet.
  • The inhabitants of this world live on the roughly 10% of exposed land mass, in underwater colonies, on city ships, or similar arrangements. It is a member of Julian Protectorate in the Tsosoe Subsector of Empty Quarter Sector and in the Hegemony of Lorean.

History and Background[edit]

The interstellar polity of Abuish is founded among the Spark Worlds in 483.

Abuish was forcefully annexed to the Damlaer Union in 534, and later joined the Hegemony when the Union did, in 942.

While Orchard (Empty Quarter 3012) was meant to be the premiere Arzula settlement world in Beta Quadrant, in reality, Abuish is the place to be for the settlers with the best political connections. Ironically, the reason for it is linked to the local’s willingness to use the rules and power of the fascist interstellar state for their own advantage: “Somebody’s gotta profit from all those government contracts, government regulations, and government supervision. Why not us?” While the scofflaw attitudes of the Irilitok Vargr made them rich, they are careful to insure that powerful humans in powerful places benefit from their wealth as well, which is where the citizens of Abuish come in.

While the Vargr occasionally are permitted to visit as guests, they are not permitted to stay: but Beta humaniti (non-Arzula, non-Damlaerite humans native to the Quarter) never step foot on Abuish. Only whistleblowers are held in greater contempt- and in this idyllic waterworld, they tend to die during police questioning at an alarming rate.
