Zarushagar Sector, while a core sector, isn't a vibrant, bustling area of high business and politics.
- It is something of a back water and a place that traders often pass through rather than stop at its important destinations.
- It is best known for the presence of one of the terminuses of the Great Rift and a significant Imperial Navy presence. The rift is a natural barrier to trade and military action from rimward space.

Zarushagar Sector lies upon relatively short paths from both Core, Vland, and the Solomani Rim, making it a crossroads for conquerors of which a number have passed through this system at various points in history, generally leaving behind vast swathes of destruction and misery.
- Native civilizations have subjugated by such conquerors for millenia, whether the Vilani, Terrans, or Syleans.
- Most of the local cultures have a strong wariness of strangers after such long experience.

Politics & Diplomacy (Interstellar Relations)
The Vilani once united the sector's many disparate elements into a single, governed whole under the Ziru Sirka, and the Terrans did the same under the Rule of Man. And the Third Imperium was no different, fists of iron and heavy-handed methods led to an interstellar community in Zarushagar Sector with little to no trust in higher authorities.
- Local communities often form independent societies and trade coalitions in response to these experiences.
- There is little record of many of the smaller pocket empires that once dotted the area before Vilani subjugation and after the Long Night but many once existed and the local worlds have not forgotten their once independent origins.
- The Duchy of Oasis and the Darmine Corporate are two such hold-outs against the Imperial steamroller.
- Much of the sector looks to those entities or their successors for indications where the political winds will blow.

Trade Routes (Economic Astrography)
With so many well-travelled trade routes, especially greater mains, in the area, much business travels through Zarushagar. Many industrial planets and starports have been developed to capture some of this wealth. And yet, very little of the prosperity associated with this trade seems to remain in the area. Many very bright Zarushagarii citizens have been investigating researching this very phenomenon. The local sector duke and much of the landed nobility are also involved. A major campaign to "Buy Zarushagarii" is well advertised throughout the region. Escorts are still needed for merchants within the sector as pirates are known to hole up in secret bases out in the Great Rift. Naval patrols have been searching the area for centuries trying to find every small asteroid, nebula base, and plantesimal with a secretive pirate base to little avail.
