History and background
Originally established by Vilani zealots fleeing religious persecution, the colonists were obviously influenced by alien artifacts found on planet during the period of the Long Night. By the time they were re-contacted they have evolved a strong dictatorship whereby the ruler is a mysterious character chosen by the people at maturity and then cloistered within the Pearl Tower at Tralaarwi. The monarch never appears in public again nor does he leave the Tower. Audiences are granted from behind a screen of translucent pearl behind which sits the ruler. Only his outline is seen and even his voice is only heard by the First Prelate who repeats his words for all to hear. This system was apparently established to allow decisions to be made on an objective basis and protects the ruler from both foes and would-be favorites.
Point of Interest: Gaeshian Block Architecture
The cities are famous for being made of large granite blocks cut exactly to shape and size so that not even a needle can be inserted between the un-cemented blocks.
