Aetsoek has a population between 10,000 and 10 million sophonts, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. It is a Vargr dominated Non-Aligned world in the Kourae Subsector of Empty Quarter Sector. This world supports a Military Base and the system supports a Naval Base. 100% of the world's population is the Major Race Vargr.

History and Background[edit]

Aetsoek’s flag with it’s inverted Vargr hand is a reminder of their strong preference for infighting, and their deep connections with the regional Blood Vargr who despise the dominant powers of Ssilnthis (Empty Quarter 1704) - and like to get their hostility across in an exceedingly violent fashion. The system is notable for both their very rigid legal system, and their remarkable tolerance of an Imperial Scout base in their system.
