Politics and Diplomacy : Milieu 1116[edit]

The District was formally added to the Imperial rolls in 610 (the neighboring Five Sisters Subsector, created at the same time, was originally District 267) as the 268th subsector to be considered for inclusion in the Imperium. [1]

As a district, its worlds are not members of the Imperium, but they do receive Imperial protection. Imperial affairs are administered from Glisten (Spinward Marches 2036) although a token capital is maintained at Mertactor (Spinward Marches 1537). [1]

In the early years of Marches exploration, the Spinward Main route through District 268 was the only viable route for jump-1 ships trading with the Imperial worlds in the Glisten Subsector. The Main forks into two branches at Talos (Spinward Marches 1436): the Collace Arm runs Spinward toward Five Sisters, while the Glisten Arm runs Trailing. Although jump-2 and jump-3 traffic is more economical, enough jump-1 ships plied these routes to create a trickle of settlement.


District 268, subsector N of Spinward Marches contains 32 worlds with an estimated population of 10 billion, a per capita income of Cr4,518, and a total economy is BCr47,029. These worlds originate an interstellar trade of BCr317 through 22 starports (1 Class A, 9 Class B, 8 Class C, 4 Class D) employing 104,850 people. Driving this interstellar trade are three Agricultural (Ag) worlds, three Non-Agricultural (Na) worlds, two Pre-Agricultural (Pa) worlds, two Pre-Industrial (Pi) worlds, eight Rich (Ri) worlds, and two Industrial (In) worlds. The governments in District 268 maintain six Scout bases, and three Naval bases. The average technology level is 7 (with most between 4 and 11). The highest technology level is 13 at Collace (Spinward Marches 1237).

District 268, subsector N of Spinward Marches contains 44 stars and 315 identified planets; 20 monostellar systems, 12 binary systems, no trinary systems, and no systems with four or more stars. 18 of the 32 systems (56%) have native gas giants. There are one Asteroid (As) belt, one Desert (De) world, three Garden (Ga) worlds, three Ice-capped (Ic) worlds, five Poor (Po) worlds, four Vacuum (Va) worlds, and no Water (Wa) or Ocean (Oc) worlds.

District 268 has an estimated population of 10 billion distributed across two High population (Hi) worlds, four Moderate population (Ph) worlds, 13 Non-industrial (Ni) worlds, four Low population (Lo) worlds, and four Barren (Ba) worlds. The highest population worlds are Forine (Spinward Marches 1533) and Collace (Spinward Marches 1237). The population consists of 3 sophont groups including two native sophonts.

The Third Imperium, Domain of Deneb has jurisdiction over two worlds with an estimated population of 10 million, a per capita income of Cr5,800, and a total economy is BCr58. These worlds originate an interstellar trade of BCr115 through 2 starports (0 Class A, 2 Class B, 0 Class C, 0 Class D) employing 36,940 people. Driving this interstellar trade are no Agricultural (Ag) worlds, no Non-Agricultural (Na) worlds, no Pre-Agricultural (Pa) worlds, no Pre-Industrial (Pi) worlds, one Rich (Ri) world, and no Industrial (In) worlds. The governments in Third Imperium, Domain of Deneb maintain two Scout bases, and one Naval base.
