Riiakea is a rich and agricultural production world with a shirt-sleeve atmosphere and a balance of available surface water. The system supports a population in the millions of sophonts, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. It is a member of Julian Protectorate in the Nisaga Subsector of Empty Quarter Sector and in the Hegemony of Lorean.

History and Background
Before the Era of Horror, Riiakea was the heart of the Gangas interstellar government, and one of the major centers of resistance to Hegemonic rule. However, the Hegemony was able to defeat her military defenses: but the population was prepared, and retreated to extensive underground networks. To destroy these networks, the Hegemonio set off the Exotorik megavolcano: the planetary plant cover was also burnt off.
After the Horror was over, the Hegemony spent great sums to rebuild the biosphere. The world is a neighbor of Star’s End sector: and - instead of the Arzula - Vilani Hegemonio from Star’s End took charge of the rebirth of the world. Even though the lifeforms now more closely resemble that of an idealized Vland than the original fauna and flora, the world is again breathing and alive. The Vilani that now inhabit the world are culturally distinct from the Arzula and the Damlaerite cultures that shape most of Hegemonio life: less fun-loving than the Damlaerites, less cold and cruel than the Arzula, and more stability and consensus-oriented than either. Moreover, the Vilani inhabitants do not subscribe to the United Cultus of the Deified Man, instead retaining their Vilani ritual traditions.
