History & Background (Dossier)
Since it was colonized, the world has been a backwater, with the population producing just enough to support the cost of life support. The last two kings have been very charismatic, and through nationalization of industry have upgraded Rethe’s starport. Rethe appears to be on the verge of becoming a major world, and the citizenry seems to like that development.
A significant population of Llellewyloly exists on this world.
In the 1080s, Rethe's population experienced a 'baby boom' and began growing explosively. The growth spurt seems to be tapering off now, but in the last 25 years the population has grown by well over six billion. The citizens have been struggling to cope with the population increase, building more orbital habitats and other needed infrastructure, putting a tremendous strain on all space activities. At one point visiting starships could not expect to get any service at all, at least not in a timely manner. Things seems to be improving, and the starport will soon be reclassified to Class D, and may become Class C in a few years; eventually it may get back to its original Class B status. 
In addition to Rethe Startown, other major settlements on Rethe include Khidabra, Klu City, Ursaka, Gashi, Kanala, Eudukate, Mead, and Usheme.
