History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Muan Gwi is an important high-population world within Vega Subsector of the Solomani Rim.

  • In many ways, Muan Gwi is one of the most important worlds in the Solomani Rim (other than Terra): Muan Gwi is homeworld of the Vegans, capital of the Vegan Autonomous District and subsector capital, and the most densely populated and productive world in the sector. The planet is highly urbanized and the majority of its Vegan population live in towering arcologies. Most construction in the last two centuries has taken the form of grav-supported superdense towers that stretch for many kilometers into the sky, and floating cities that hover over the world’s oceans.

In the year 1112 Archduke Adair moved the capital of the Domain of Sol from Exeter (Diaspora 2729) to Muan Gwi (Solomani Rim 1717).

Imperial Landed Nobility (N)[edit]

Muan Gwi, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estates of three members of the Imperial Nobility, who are charged with overseeing the world.

World Starport (Sp)[edit]

Muan Gwi has a Class A Starport, an excellent quality installation which includes all the expected amenities including refined fuel for starships, brokerage services for passengers and cargo, and a variety of ship provisions. There is a shipyard capable of doing annual maintenance, overhauls and other kinds of repair, and construction of both starships and non-starships. Most ports of this classification have both a Highport and a Downport.

  • The planet is encircled by five vast orbital highports, with a sixth now under construction.

World Population (P)[edit]

No information yet available.

World Demographics[edit]

Vegan, population more than 90%

Humaniti, population less than 10%

Small numbers of other sophonts (such as Aslan, Vargr, Hiver, and Bwaps) are occasionally encountered in the busy starsports and major cities. However, the majority of the population consists of Vegans, as this is their homeworld.

World Government (G)[edit]

Muan Gwi is governed by a Civil Service Bureaucracy. The leadership of the government is another form (democracy, dictatorship, oligarchy), but the bureaucracy leadership influences policy. The government leadership may select the bureaucracy leadership, but not its membership. Usually the governmental leadership is divided, or incapable of setting policy and the bureaucracy provides a stabilizing influence. The bureaucracy may be the full government bureaucracy or a section with limited jurisdiction but considerable influence like the military. In the year 1112, the Muan Gwi is designated as the new capital of the Domain of Sol.

History-Era: Milieu 1120[edit]

In 1112 the Archduke Kieran Langos Adair declared his intention to move the capital of the Domain of Sol to Muan Gwi from its previous location at Exeter (Diaspora 2729). The new domain capital became operational in 1114, though Archduke Adair himself did not take up residence on Muan Gwi until early in 1115.

History-Era: New Era[edit]

Though there was a great deal of damage caused by the Virus, Muan Gwi retained a small number of salvageable starships, and eventually regained contact with Dingir in 1190. Trade relations were reestablished soon afterward, and now regular merchant convoys travel the jump-2 route through the Wilds between Dingir and Muan Gwi. The government of Muan Gwi maintains a strict non-intervention policy in the internal affairs of other worlds. This policy has meant that many Vegan "fallen" worlds are still controlled by individuals who are hostile to the old ways. The Terrans have exploited this situation by providing support to anti-Muan Gwi Vegan factions on various worlds. The aim of this policy is to keep the Vegans from uniting into a regional power which would likely be hostile to the Terran Republic.
