Until 1088, Desaekhe was a rather backward world with a poorly organized agricultural base and feeble industry. The High Tribunal, a committee of five of the most prominent semi-feudal lords from the planet's primary continents was organized in that year. Within a decade, tribunal military forces brought the rest of the planet under control. A massive program of industrialization an technological advancement, possibly backed by off-world finances, propelled the world into a position of considerable local power. This was further enhanced as various obsolete ships of Zhodani design were added to the planetary navy by purchases made among a number of nearby Zhodani-aligned client states.

By 1103, the Descar Navy had forced two neighboring worlds to join in the Descarothe Hegemony, a tightly controlled empire thinly disguised as a federation of worlds united against League influence. With this base, Desaekhe, far more aggressive than the League, has become a major influence in subsector politics. A dispute over Qarant in 1105 led to a co-dominium status for the world, with full status for the world, with full rights of exploration and research allowed both worlds. The Hegemony has been much more active there than the League since that time though the Institute for Systems Studies does maintain a mission there.
