Attica is a vacuum world, with a complete lack of atmosphere. The system has a population between 10,000 and 10 million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. It is a Human dominated Non-Aligned world in the Querion Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector.

Astrography & Planetology[edit]

The world government maintains small outposts on the three rocky worlds of the system and in the planetoid belt.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Settlement[edit]

Officially a neutral world at its colonization in the 570s, the world epitomises the Imperial expansion that so threatened the Zhodani Consulate at this period.

First Frontier War[edit]

At the start of the First Frontier War, Attica is a pro-Imperial, neutral world. It is, however, defended by the Imperium so successfully that the world becomes part of the Imperium, as part of the County of Chronor (Briefly) and then (after the peace) the County of Querion.

Second Frontier War[edit]

At the start of the Second Frontier War, Attica is still a part of the Imperium. It is the only world of the County of Querion that survives the Zhodani Consulate's onslaught. At the end of the Second Frontier War, the battered Attica remains a part of the Imperium, becoming part of the County of Arden.

Neutrality[edit]

Between the Second and Third Frontier Wars, the Imperium withdraws from Attica and forces it to become a neutral state.

Third Frontier War[edit]

At the start of the Third Frontier War, Attica remains an independent, but anti-Zhodani state. By the end of the Third Frontier War, Attica is occupied by and annexed to the Zhodani Consulate.

Independence[edit]

Sometime between 986 and 1082, Attica's vehomently hostile population gains independence from the Zhodani Consulate.

Fourth Frontier War[edit]

Attica remained neutral during the Fourth Frontier War

Golden Era[edit]

In spite of Attica's location on the border with the Zhodani Consulate, or perhaps because of it, the world was vehemently Anti-Psionic and Anti-Zhodani before the Collapse. The success of the Regency's Psionic Reforms caused a change in local opinions about psionics, but it has hardened towards the Zhodani. The world should be considered an Amber Zone for Zhodani, though this is only a problem if they ignore local restrictions. For no Zhodani is allowed to land in the downport. Attica's prejudices have hurt its reputation in the Regency, and the world mostly gets by economically through trade with the Federation of Arden.
