Khiishi, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world.

History and background[edit]

The government classification is less than a true balkanisation (difficult with a total population of 230) but more like a composite of types 1 and 7: there are two companies competing with each other for economic control and ownership of the world. Shea Agro-Constructs and DagMet both employ just over a hundred individuals in research and development roles, the former in the search for new agricultural produce and the later for new mineral sources.

Both companies have been granted exploration licenses, which restrict their operations to certain activities and predefined areas. Both have broken their respective license agreements on all counts. On occasion they have clashed with each other in zones outside their remit, sometimes violently. They have been trying their utmost to outdo each other and are not averse to undermining their opponents operations by any means. The two sides have refrained from reporting each other’s legally-suspect activities to the subsector, sector and Imperial administrators for fear of having both their licenses revoked yet; their mutual antipathy is common knowledge to most business concerns in the region.
