Uakye has a population between 10,000 and 10 million sophonts, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. This is a high technology world with available technology over the standards for Charted Space.  This planet is tidally-locked to its primary star with a hot region facing the the primary, a cold region on the other side, and a habitable area in the twilight zone between. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Regina Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb. Uakye, 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.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Uakye is an underpopulated world with a little light industry and a good quality starport that attracts trade.

World Government[edit]

Uakye is governed by an Impersonal Bureaucracy. The leadership of the government is another form (democracy, dictatorship, oligarchy), but the bureaucracy dictates government policy and its execution. Government leadership is reduced to little more than figureheads and does not select the bureaucracy leadership or its members.

The government of Uakye is divided almost evenly between the judicial, executive, and legislative bodies, with the judicial having a slight priority over the other two branches. The judicial function is relegated to a system of hierarchical courts, having regional jurisdictions over various laws. The judges in these courts are selected by a civil service system, and must be recertified every three years. Countess Parasii, an Imperial noble is the sole executive. Her troops, serving in a civilian capacity as law enforcement officers, are generally regarded as being even-handed and efficient. Laws are made by a variety of administrative councils, each having jurisdiction over a certain aspect of life. These legislators are also chosen by the civil service system; any citizen is eligible to attempt to gain a position.

World Economy[edit]

Uakye can not produce enough food locally to feed its population and so remains dependent upon trade.

World Culture[edit]

Directly north (toward the dark side) of Uakye City is an area of ocean known as the Shallows, because of its consistent depth of about one meter, covering about 40,000 square kilometers. Every two years, the "Race to the Depths" pits the hardiest Uakyeans against each other as teams of four citizens compete in an "overland" trek. Starting from Uakye City, each team must travel, on foot, 220 kilometers due north to reach the edge of the Shallows, where the continental shelf suddenly drops off. The winning team (or team member, in case of casualties from drowning or attacking ocean life), is awarded a cash prize of Cr50,000; the potential income from commercial endorsements is valued at about five times that amount.

In an effort to increase Uakye's population, the government requires widows and widowers between the ages of 20 and 30 to remarry within a year. Divorces are not allowed between these age limits.


Uakye has very little available land that is, fortunately, arranged around the twilight band. The largest island, Triante, holds Uakye City on the north shore. The city is large and sprawling, with a large industrial park, several residential areas and Uakye Down Starport.

World Timeline[edit]

  • (1111): In 328-1111, Uakye declared a state of emergency due to the first outbreak of Perruque plague. Within a few weeks, the plague had passed, leaving a large number of dead.
