Rabwhar is a moderate population world, too many sophonts to be an agricultural world but not enough to be an industrial world. This world designated as an Amber Zone. Caution is advised since the world has an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions that are not well understood and might be a danger to a visitor. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Lunion Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb. Rabwhar, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estates of an Imperial knight and a baronet, and the fiefdoms of a marquis and a viscount. All four are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. This world contains an Imperial Scout Base, capable of handling Scout Service starships and personnel.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Rabwhar’s economy is based around the harvesting and processing of compounds derived from its incredibly abundant plant life. [2]

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Rabwhar is not a garden world, but it has agricultural tendencies. Its economy is based around harvesting and processing of compounds derived from its plant life. The planet had a thicker atmosphere in the past, and thanks to millennia of out-gassing, the local plants have evolved certain unusual properties that are useful in life-support system manufacture and chemical synthesis, such as hyper-oxygenation.

World Government[edit]

Rabwhar is governed by a Non-charismatic Dictatorship. A continuation of the charismatic dictatorship, where the original leadership has died or retired and replaced by allies or protégés. The reason for the change in government remain as well as the assertion of rights to rule.

Rabwhar is ruled by a hereditary monarchy. In 1095 a particularly unpopular king was overthrown in a coup. The king abdicated as revolutionaries seized the capital city. The new government, led by the king's popular niece, ruled for nearly three weeks before the army regained control, forcing the leaders of the Seventeen Day Democracy into offworld exile.

By 1105 the Democratic Government in Exile of Rabwhar (DGER), based in Shirene (Spinward Marches 2125) still claimed to be the legitimate rulers of Rabwhar, though the organization had largely degenerated into a band of pirates and raiders.

World Economy[edit]

Considerable income is generated from servicing the Imperial Scout Base that acts as a starport for the world.[2]
