The system has a population between 10,000 and 10 million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Jewell Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb. Lysen, 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. This world contains an Imperial Scout Base, capable of handling Scout Service starships and personnel.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Most of the world's population works at or is dependent on the starport and its scout base.

Lysen is defended by a number of Scout Service vessels, including two Azhanti High Lightning-class cruisers, converted to a sublight-only monitor role.

Other Data[edit]

Lysen's technocratic government collapsed amidst a series of major bribery scandals in the 1170s. Several communities seceded, and formed separate nations. The world's downport is itself a sovereign nation, albeit non-aligned with any major factions.
