Efate is an industrial world with a tainted atmosphere. The system has a population over one billion. This world contains an archaeological site with artifacts suspected to be from the now-vanished Ancients. This is a high technology world with available technology over the standards for Charted Space. This is a temperate world, with a climate of average temperatures. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Regina Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb. Efate, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight and the fiefdoms of a count and a minor duke. All three are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. The system supports both an Imperial Naval Base and Way Station.

Point of Interest: Ancients Site
An Ancients site was discovered on Efate in 354, though it had been robbed of all useful artifacta. Today the site is used as a historic monument maintained by the IISS. The site consists of a partially restored grid of walls spaced about two meters apart and extremely massive fortifications at random intervals.
History & Background (Dossier)
In addition to Efate Startown, other major settlements on Efate include Anlisha, Makish, Kheker, Arden, Irir, and Gasharr.
On 204-1107, as part of the opening of the war, Efate faced a Zhodani siege, followed by heavy planetary fighting.
The Siege of Efate proved one of the crucial campaigns of the entire war.
Efate has been settled almost as long as Regina and has always been its rival for the position as most important system in the Regina Cluster. It passed Regina in population long ago and its technology is also better (space technology is up to Imperial standards), but political considerations still keep it in second place. In the last decade, civil disturbances have contributed to this; the Imperium has been forced to introduce martial law and the system is currently governed by the Imperial Navy.
