History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Approximately 10% of Calit's population are chirpers.

Calit was granted protected status by the Imperium in 470 and granted full membership in 576.

Calit is ruled from Denotam (Spinward Marches 1413). Denotam's ruling coalition is the only functional collaboration of its multiple criminal "governments" (and "functional," like "government" is a relative term). The Calit Governing Coalition Bureau (CGCB) rules with a light hand, taxes lightly, and otherwise keeps out of local "home rule" issues. Denotam became the distant ruler of the world in almost inexplicable circumstances: one of its factions "declared war".- In more accurate terms, it decided to threaten Calit to extort "protection money". It sent a small task force (a mercenary contingent, "enforcers"), and made threats in order to collect a "stipend" to stay away. It was, in short, a "protection" racket.
