History and Background[edit]

Kourae has tolerated the direct rule of one or another off-world Vargr system or pirate pack for centuries now. Instead of rejecting the aliens, the local citizenry have focused on teaching the Vargr the right (read: Vilani) way to live, with remarkable success. This success has been further leveraged by the local population to a rather strong technological base, as the knowledge of Vargr science is re-shaped into a Vilani form.

Quite a lot of Ovaghoun Vargr have an intense admiration of Vilani culture, and among the greatest of honors is to be legally considered a True Vilani Gentleman. It is broadly acknowledged that in the Rukadukaz Republic, it is the Cultural Associations of Kourae who have the stringiest standards - and is the home of the best and most widely respected Civilized Minds of the Republic.

After Ikon (Empty Quarter 1602) herself, Kourae has had a major hand in making the Ovaghoun who they are today. Cultural goods and local rulings on Proper Behavior have a major influence on Ovaghoun behavior across Charted Space. Moreover, there is a steady flow of visitors, priests, academics, historians, and traders from distant Vland, helping to keep the local Vargr on the safe and certain road of Complete Conformity.

One of the Eight Notable Worlds of the Rukadukaz Republic.
