History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Zykoca is governed by a Representative Democracy where government leadership is representatives elected by eligible voters. What determines an eligible voter varies. The representatives determine policy, including selecting members of the bureaucracy. There can be referendum, votes by eligible voters on specific subjects.

Though Zykoca is a member of the Imperium, the inhabitants are extremely xenophobic and all offworld contact has been suspended by an Imperial Interdiction Order. In 1097 a local mob broke into the starport, killing several offworlders. [2][3]
