The system has a population between 10,000 and 10 million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Kuriishe Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Cyrene, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world.

History and background
Cyrene was setled before the Civil War to provide a guaranteed source of fuel for the Naval base at Kherse (Dagudashaag 3014). The system is lightly populated, with most of the sixty thousand citizens involved in supporting the ‘water run’ to Kherse. Significant facilities on planet include the ice refinery (for processing and purifying fuel) and the basic Starport. Much of the worlds’ facilities are underground.
The system ceased to be controlled from Kherse early in the reign of Strephon, as the local bureaucracy petitioned the Emperor to allow them self-rule. This was granted as it supported the official line encouraging local development. At present, the bureaucracy that ran the world for Kherse exercises control. There is some unease at this, with suspicion that several of the bureaucrats are ‘paid men’ with an agenda of Kherse’s devising.
However, the world is a place full of hope, with an exciting buzzing atmosphere. Significant investment has been invited to develop the vast, untouched resources of the four gas giants and the two planetoid belts. Local speculation about a lanthanum strike in one of the belts has been fueled by the fact that both Delgado Trading and Sternmetal Horizons have recently set up local offices, and by an increased presence of Naval vessels from the bases at Kherse and Imsu. Starport charges are slightly lower than normal to try to encourage trade.
