History & Background (Dossier)

Shetland is known for only two things, its Imperial Naval Base with marine training fields, and the kelp farms of its central ocean.

  • The majority of the population is employed either by the Imperial Navy or in support of the base.
  • The civil service bureaucracy also helps support Imperial interests in the neighbouring Kolan Hegemony, in conjunction with Gerim in the neighbouring Caledon Subsector.
  • The Naval base itself is tasked with protecting the Imperial border facing towards the Great Rift.
  • The population of Shetland, as well as nearby Scapa, Kaagin, Sheffield and Gerim all trace back to one of the more successful Reaver Warlords.

Imperial High (Landed) Nobility

Shetland, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of three members of the Imperial Nobility, who are charged with overseeing the world.
