Ekuu is an agricultural world with a tainted atmosphere but still a near-ideal environment for producing foodstuffs. The system supports a population of tens of millions of sophonts. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Old Suns Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Ekuu, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight and the fiefdoms of a baron and a marquis. All three are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. This world contains an Imperial Scout Base, capable of handling Scout Service starships and personnel. During the Long Night this world was named Karzi Ash.

History and background
The world is home to an oppressive dictatorship that has strong Vilani roots and models itself on the original Ziru Sirka. Ekuu is the premier agricultural world on the Shegimuud trace and deals with a large turnaround of ships despite haying some of the most draconian trade laws in the sector. In addition to the many rules and regulations a merchant needs to have a thorough knowledge of the amount of bribe each official requires. A merchant can expect to pay thousands of credits in kickbacks and sweeteners, depending of course on the nature of the cargo. It should be noted that bribery is completely illegal and carries a stiff sentence it caught. Some offenders are lucky and get hard labour; the truly unfortunate end up in jail.
