History and Background
Akiar is a poor, Indian-dominated world which is undergoing some political troubles This system has been ruled directly by Imperial Viceroy Madhavan Babbar since the extinction of the ancient Solomani ruling house in 978. Various families have attempted to persuade Dethwabtakebwebwakawa - Baron of Wesaswek, Duke of Lentuli and Sector Duke of the Empty Quarter - to nominate their relatives to the empty planetary throne: none has succeeded.
Abadani beliefs shape several local political philosophies, and was even the basis of a brief planetary government (925-955), despite the opposition of the local Barony. Today, Abadani remains influential in many cities and rural regions of the planet. There has also been a slight rise in technological ability, and implicitly wealth a well. Rich in food, minerals and an excellent tourist trade, one could be forgiven for thinking that Akiar couldn't possibly have any problems. Unfortunately it does. Just about every native belongs to either the Ullini faction or the Davirno faction. These are the two political parties and hated rivals. So evenly are the people divided that neither can gain a long lasting political edge over the other. Under threat of being Amber Zoned several times, Akiar rarely bothers off-worlders but there have been a few instances. Aside from this trouble though, Akiar, with almost all of its facilities existing underwater in the deep oceans, is a fascinating place to stay.
There is no established noble attached to the system- a military Imperial Viceroy acts as the system administrator and world leader. The major factions are threatening to divide into sub-factions. There is much strife attached to local religious (Hindu) and territorial controversies. The Imperial Diplomatic Corps is working to resolve the multitude of issues and tangled conflicts. Barony of Akiar: This title currently has no claimant, as the local ruling house went extinct in 978. As of 993, an Imperial Viceroy is in charge of the system, working to end a tiresome civil conflict.
