History and Background[edit]

This was one of the worlds ruled by humans by 375, during the War of Man. Later, the Suedzuk regained their dominance over humaniti.

The interstellar polity of the Flange Democratic Zone is founded in Beta Quadrant in 705.

The Hegemony of Lorean attacks Ssilnthis (Empty Quarter 1704) and the Flange Democratic Zone in 796. Both attacks are repelled. As part of the peace, the Flange Democratic Zone is dissolved.

In search of larger markets, Flange petitioned to join the Hegemony in 960. This was granted in 963, over the strong objections of the Rukadukaz Republic.

Flange’s situation is curious: a Blood Vargr minority ruling class are seen as the legitimate planetary rulers by the majority human population, even as the system is a member of the highly anti-Vargr Hegemony of Lorean. The Suedzuk of Flange are only about 10% of the population, but - after a period of second-class status - once again clawed their way to the top of the political food chain.
