History & Background / Dossier[edit]

A major S'mrii colony, and member of the original Alliance of Worlds.

Zuiar has a large industrial base, concentrating on electronics, vehicle and heavy equipment manufacturing.

During the Pacification Campaigns, the Vilani recognised that Zuiar was too valuable a target to depopulate completely, and so the world was occupied and Makhidkarun began a major settlement programme. In many cases S’mrii urban centres were simply bulldozed to make way for the Vilani, and their populations forced out into the deserts.

At present, Humans (mainly Vilani) form about fifty percent of the world’s population, and tensions between the Human and S'mrii communities run high. The S'mrii seem intent on regaining their lost territory by any means short of actual violence. The future seems bleak for the Human community, as their ancient S'mrii built aquifers and irrigation systems break down and cannot be repaired (without outside help...). Water riots are becoming increasingly common, especially in the mixed-race areas.
