History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Shukikikar League initially formed in 890 with its capitol in the Shukikikar (world) system with several adjoining systems. The intent of the League at that time was to unify the coreward part of the subsector and expand to have a common border with the Third Imperium. The Shukikikar league took advantage of the Imperium's focus on the Solomani Rim War to invade a number of nearby systems. After a period of initial success ending in 1022, the League bogged down in a series of prolonged sieges and wars of attrition. The Imperium gave assistance to a number of systems opposing the League as a way to keep their power in check. In 1101, a temporary alliance between systems opposed to the League, as the Slovenian Protectorate, made a successful assault on Shukikikar (world) that ended with the destruction of the League's capitol in a nuclear war. The Shukikikar League's capitol was re-established on Ardi (world) shortly afterwards. Since 1101, the League's focus has been defensive and focused on rebuilding their client systems.

Government & Politics (Leadership)[edit]

Overview: 1105[edit]

Internal Politics: 1105[edit]

The Shukikikar League is currently experiencing a fractured political outlook. Their failure to achieve intended political goals, and continuing warfare has left the League arguing internally about its direction and even its continued existence. About the only thing all member systems agree on is mounting a strong defense against outside forces annihilating any more of the member systems as happened to the Shukikikar (world) and Dilugii (world) systems. Many systems within the League face internal strife and political division. Others have become oligarchic dictatorships to quell unrest. Outside military defense, the central government has little control over systems within the League.
