The Sol Expansion Zone is a region of colonised space located in the North East sector of nearby space. The Expansion Zone, also called the Lordanian Cluster, is divided into two distinct sovereign states: the Lordanian Republic (officially the Second Lordanian Republic), and the Confederate Systems of Lordania.

History

21sr Century - 2215

Year Events
Late-2100s Seeder ships from the Sol system arrive in the Lordanian, Yuklid, Tyananni, Lucinaer, and Nouveaulyon systems.

The colonies maintain contact with one another, though lose contact with Sol.

2205 The first Republic of Lordania is founded, growing from a minor colonial government into a full elective body. Other systems around begin to adopt similar constitutions and republics.
2208 The five Republics sign a pact of alliance, forming the beginning of the official Lordanian Republic. Primarily trade agreements at first.
2210 Lordania and the Terran Commonwealth remake contact. They are greeted by a large civil war between the Ares Confederation and the Terran Commonwealth. This shattered hopes of a peaceful reunification, and instead, representatives from all five Republics gather at the Lordanian Senate to debate the matter of re-unification. In the end, the Senate votes to remain independent.
2215 The Lordanian Republic is officially founded.

2216 - 2264

Month Events
2218 The Colonial Charter is drafted, giving member states the rights to further colonise planets in the immediate area.
2219 An official currency, the 'Lordanian Dollar' is enacted.

Denebola is colonised.

2225 Following an academic dispute, scientists from Lordania spearhead the founding of an independent scientific colony on a nearby planet, Lorriman
2228 Visser is colonised.
2430 The construction of a bluespace gate between Lordania, Tyananni, and newly formed Sol Central Government increases trade by tenfold. Relations improve dramatically
2431 Tension between Sol and the newly independent ICCG prompt the creation of the Lordanian Defence Fleets.

The Lordanian Republic begins attempts to centralise control over it's member states, drifting from a confederation of aligned planets to a formal federal government.

2233 Rising civil unrest begins on Yuklid after their attempted recognition of Gilgameshian Independence was veto'd by the Republic. Heavy handed efforts by the government prove ineffective, with protests spreading to neighboring planets. This sours relations with Sol.
2235 A joint agreement with Sol is reached to begin the colonisation of a penal colony. Originally named Pinascimate, this planet is today known as Tersten.
2237 Growing corruption within the Lordanian Senate is left unchecked with the passing of the Dynamic Economics Act, allowing several senators to directly prosper from its passing.
2243 Attempts to repeal the act are met by dismissal by Lordanian Senators, at the expense of other member systems.
2250s Without a plan, the centralised Lordanian Economy collapses, unable to support it's growing states.

Unemployment and Inequality soars.

2252 With little hope left in the Government, scientists from the Institute create and design a prototype AI Governor, and install it as overseer of the Visser Colony.
2254 Widespread social and political upheaval leads to the creation of a new political party known as Lordanian Unity, advocating that the Government had utterly failed, and that the Lordanian people had a duty to fix this mistake. Aided by charismatic leadership and thugs, the Unitarians begin gaining serious political support.
2256 Tyananni Senator Jacques Garcin denounces the popular Lordanian Unity party, warning people of their Fascist undertones and threat to democracy. Unsurprisingly, his warnings are not heeded.
2258 Lordanian Unity is elected into power. Initially, Consul Leonard Percy acted as benevolent as he had intended to appear, and the party seemed to respect the democratic affairs. Percy is even quoted as claiming, "None loves the process of Democracy as I, for it is as Lordanian as the air we breathe."
2260 A deadly explosion at the Lordanian Senate takes the lives of numerous senators and representatives. It is the single most deadly act of terrorism in Lordanian history. To date, no perpetrators were ever caught.

This leads to a massive curtailing of civil liberties across all planets. The Emergency Powers act is signed.

2262 A media blackout begins over the Republic. For five years, only state sanctioned news is allowed. The gateway of Delta Pavlonis is occupied by the Lordanian military, effectively controlling any entry to the region.
2264 With little fanfare or notice, the Republic's constitution is formally suspended. Consul Leonard Percy is elected Dictator-for-Life.

2264 - 2280

Month Events
2264 Officially renamed People's Republic of Lordania. Widespread protest begins on numerous worlds.

Scientific Institute on Lorriman formally incorporated into the People's Republic.

2266 Numerous political leaders and military commanders opposed to the Government are purged. Many flee underground and form a resistance.
2268 Tersten officially becomes a one-world government, and swiftly annexed into the People's Republic.
2270s Numerous protests become violent, prompting excessive force from the Government. In total, approximately 30,000 people are killed during these crackdowns.

With the economy recovering, the Government begin a series of infrastructural improvements across numerous planets, with the dream of creating a large scale Lordanian Military.

To combat, or to control, widespread unrest, the Government begins a series of xenophobic purges, placing the blame of numerous murders and terrorist actions at the feet of non-Lordanian natives, such as the Sol-born people on Tersten.

2274 Widespread unrest leads to the Nevadan Race Riots on Tersten, with 300 Martians killed, and 2000 displaced. This riot was condemned by a large number of people on Tersten as being encouraged by the Government. Bands of vigilantes form on the planet, hunting those responsible. This would become the Tersten Resistance, who played a significant part in the revolution.
2275 After years of planning and preparation underground, the former commanders of the Republic began to surface as a newly formed resistance against the state.
2276 After long deliberations, the People's Republic formally acknowledge the Resistance as a threat, and prepare their defence forces for a long war.
2277 A group of journalists from Sol Central's largest newspaper are killed when the freighter they were sneaking aboard was seized by the Lordanian Military for 'harbouring Terrorists'. A demand from Sol for a full explanation is ignored.
2278 The Tersten Resistance detonate a bomb in the Tersten City Parliament during an emergency meeting attended by the Chief of Staff and several Admirals of the People's Republic. Her death signals the start of the Uprising. While never officially confirmed, a group known as the Vedento Eight, composed of high ranking individuals within the State who sympathised with the Resistance, aided in this.
2279 The Resistance sends out a small cruiser out with a fake distress beacon from the Commander of the Resistance Forces. Taking the bait, a newly appointed admiral of the fleet gives chase, being led into the gravity well of a nearby black hole. A vast Resistance force was then able to keep sustained fire on the fleet to prevent their escape. Their shields would hold, and they would remain in stable orbit, but any attempts to increase thrust would leave them open to bombardment from the superior Rebel fleet. How the rebels achieved this greater number was, again, never officially confirmed nor denied, to be a joint covert operation between the TCC and the SCG.

With the Lordanian main fleet occupied, a lone Resistance flagship enters Lordanian space. Aiming itself at the Lordanian Senate, it sets itself on a collision course. The Senate is completely destroyed, along with several city blocks. It is the largest and most devastating attack of it's kind, with an estimated 300,000 dead, primarily military and political figures. The Consul himself is among the dead. City blocks on the other side of the planet report earthquake damage. Estimated total cost of rebuilding reached over one trillion Thaler. With the head of the People's Republic completely decimated, it's influence across the region would completely collapse overnight.

2280 Remaining survivors of the Senate's destruction convene in a marquee on the grounds of the first landing site on Lordania, in the shadow of the ruined Senate. Here, they formally declare the abolishment of the People's Republic. Surviving plotters of the Vedento Eight formally acknowledge the existence of their Coup, and their intent to found a Second Republic. Without the means to formally rebuild, the region becomes mostly independent planets. This period is known as the Interregnum.

2280-2288

Month Events
2280 Congress of the Cinuan People is established to debate the question of Independence.

Tyananni and Nouveaulyon found the 'Democratic League', the creation of a joint republic between the two systems. This is considered the predecessor of the Confederate Systems of Lordania.

Lorriman overthrows the Director of the Lordanian Institute of Science. This leads to the creation of a technocratic democracy, and self rule.

2281 Tersten founds the Republic of Tersten, the first democractic one-world government on the planet. Enters a period known as the 'Tersten Golden Age'.

Republic of Lordania enters a period of decline. With a large part of the planet's primary districts in ruin following the Collapse. Lordania appeals to the Interstellar Assembly and Sol Central Government for aid in rebuilding. Sol agrees in exchange for a full investigation into the misdeeds of the People's Republic. This agreement is ratified in the First Proclamation.

2282 Kingston, weakened under the PRL, enters a period of prosperous self-governance, petitioning with Tersten and Tyannani for greater independence.

The last of the PRL's forces on Indus are defeated at the Battle of Moki Noe

The Sol-TCC Cold War begins.

In the tumultuous final decades of the 24th century, Humanity took their first steps towards the stars.

The Terran Commonwealth sent colonists to an interesting system, ripe for colonisation. The system contained two continental planets. This was named the Lordanian System, and Lordania and Kingston were founded. In just under 50 years, the colonisation efforts had paid off. By the time of the Earthly transition from the Terran Confederation to Sol Government, Lordania had become a fledgling cluster of 8 planets. In recognition of this, the cluster was renamed the Lordanian Cluster, and the first Lordanian Republic was founded to best represent the issues of the Cluster within Sol Governance. As the Republic continued to grow, they began to colonise more planets, creating an Expansion Rim. The colonisation of Aldebaran prompted a widespread exploration of many of the other planets in the system, leading to several colonies being established in the newly created Outer Rim.

In 2436, the Lordanian Republic signed the Sol Central Government Charter. However, in 2437, when the Terran Confederation declared independence from Sol Central, the question of an independent Lordania were raised in the Senate. These debates raged for 5 years, until the Lordanian Senate agreed to remain entirely within Sol Government. This was hotly contested, and served to sour relationships between the Republic and Sol.

In 2444, Yuklid, one of the systems within the cluster, declared independence from the Republic, and this caused the Yuklid War, which began as a small conflict and eventually grew into a protracted conflict in the Cluster's Outer Rim. Yuklid had attempted to join the newly formed Terran Confederacy, and originally declared independence due to an assurance that the Confederacy would assist them. However, the Confederacy refused to honor the agreement, and Yuklid was left to fight alone. Due to the close proximity of Yuklid and Lordania, conflict between the two systems primarily focused on Outer Rim skirmishes over possession of the colonies. The Sixteen year conflict culminated with Republic forces landing on Yuklid and brokering a harsh peace treaty. Yuklid was reintegrated into the Lordanian Republic in 2460. The lack of intervention on behalf of Sol Gov contributed to the creation of the Defense Forces, and worsened relationships between the Republic and Sol.

Between 2460 and 2490, the Lordanian Republic continued to expand. This rapid expansion led to large swaths of inequality in the Outer Rim, and large corruption scandals plagued the Senate. This led to large disillusion with the Republic and by extension, Sol Central Government. Due to the lack of a unified currency, the Lordanian Dollar began to fluctuate in 2470, and continued to decline well into the 80s. A failed attempt to solve this decline by the Senate resulted in high unemployment, further radicalising the Lordanian people. This culminated in the rise of the Lordanian Unity party, a far right party within the senate. In the federal election of 2490, the Lordanian Unity Party leader, Leonard Percy was elected Consul of the Lordanian Republic.

The Lordanian Unity party began to consolidate power within the Republic. An Explosion at the Senate in 2493 took the lives of many Senators, and the Consul began a policy of repealing many civil rights laws. In 2494, the Lordanian Republic refused to sign the Universal Declaration of Rights. By 2495, the Consul gained unrestrictive legeslative power, and the Republic was reformed into the First Lordanian Empire.

A combination of hesitation and false promises allowed the Empire to grow stronger. Neither Sol Central and the Lordanian Empire wanted a war, and so the Empire was allowed to grow.

The Empire's anti-xeno and pro-Lordanian programs were originally encouraged by the population, as the Empire blamed the problems of the state onto a targetable population. This culminated in what was known as the "Lordanian Program", a genocide that, between the periods of 2495 and 2530, killed millions of people, who were declared 'Enemies of the State' and un-personed. These policies culminated in the deaths of over 15 million Lordanians, and in excess of 30 million+ Non-Lordanian. Approximately sixty percent of this total come from the planet Respite, which was used as a prison planet for the Empire. Even to this day, the total number of people killed in these prisons remains unknown.

The Empire's fierce grip on the system meant that many of these atrocities went unnoticed, and was only discovered after the collapse of the Empire in 2530.

The Empire's collapse came from inside, as rebellion groups resisted the Authoritarian Regime. At the Battle of Ninae in 2528, the Brotherhood of Respite were able to trap the Empire's fleet in the gravity well of a black hole, and heavily damage them. This is considered the first battle of the Lordanian Revolution, which took place over 3 years and ended with the destruction of the Lordanian Senate and the execution of the Consul.

In 2530, the Lordanian Empire was formally disbanded by the Lordanian Senate, and an emergency senate was called. Due to the complete collapse of Government, many planets overthrew the Lordanian presence on their planets, and declared independence. This period is called the Interregnum.


Sol Central Government advocated the creation of a new Republic, which was proposed in the First Proclamation of Lordania in 2531. This allowed the Senate to rebuild, and granted greater autonomy to systems that rejoined the Republic. This was rejected by two prominent Outer Rim systems, Aldebaran and Tyannani. In response, Tyannani declared the Tyannani Convention in 2533, in which many Outer Rim senators and Rebellion Commanders opposed another Lordanian Republic, and instead proposed a state that encouraged Laissez-faire system, rather than a semi-controlled market that the Republic desired.

The intense negotiations that followed in the Second Lordanian Convention (2534) and the Aldebaran Convention (2535) ended in a complete breakdown of relationships, with Aldebaran and Tersten supporting the Republic, and Tyannani supporting the creation of a new state.

In 2535, with support of Sol Gov, the Second Lordanian Republic was founded.

In 2536, the Confederate Systems of Lordania declared independence from both Sol Gov, and the Lordanian Republic.

The two states maintained a careful truce, and began to open trading negotiations between the two governments. Both systems joined the Interstellar Assembly, and the two previously hostile nations began to reconcile. However, in 2558, relationships worsened, and border skirmishes started to become more common. In response, independent Skrellian negotiators brokered a hasty truce. Even with these measure, the cold war threatens to turn hot at any moment.

Government and Politics

The Cluster is primarily divided into two governments, the Lordanian Republic and the Confederate Systems of Lordania. The Republic controls the Inner Rim and much of the Mid and Outer Rim. The Confederacy controls prominent systems in the Outer Rim.

There are many un-governed systems in the Cluster, though they are small enough to slip through the cracks of government. The two notable exceptions to this are Sarstusca and Mjonder.


Second Lordanian Republic

Confederate Systems of Lordania


Planets

Lordania

Lordania is the Capital of the Lordanian Republic, and is a seven planet system. Two of these planets are heavily populated. These planets are Lordania and Kingston.

Yuklid

Yuklid is a binary star system in the Inner Rim. It has five planets, of which only Yuklid V is occupied.

Lucinaer

Lucinaer is a binary star system in the Mid Rim. It's only occupied planet is Cinu, a desert planet with similar conditions as of Earth's Middle East. It's capital is Al-Mular, and it served as a primary destination for many Arabic Colonists from Sol.

Gessshire

Gessshire is a single star system located in the Mid Rim. Gessshire is a B-Type star system, and it's occupied planet, Lorriman, is a frozen arctic world. Because of it's size and location, Lorriman has been home to the Lordanian Institute of Science for over fifty years, and serves as the primary base of operations for any research efforts in the Cluster.

Chardaan

Chardaan is a trinary star system located in the Mid Rim. Due to this, it has no habitable planets. However, on it's closest planet, Chard, a sizable mining colony has been established on the harsh, volcanic planet.

Visser

Visser is a three planet system in the Outer Rim. It's Capital is Visser City, and is a Technocratic Dictatorship, in which it's planet is governed by a benevolent AI.

Kesh

Kesh is a G-Type Sequence Star, with one occupied planet, Lyon. Lyon is a prominent member of the Confederate Systems, and often considered the 'Birthplace of the Confederate', due to many of its founding members conceived the Confederate's ideals on Lyon.

Tyannani

Tyannani is a B-Type Main Sequence Star with one planet. Tyannani. As the capital of the Confederate Systems of Lordania, the system is populated by large amounts of satellites, habitation pods, and interstellar traffic. Even Tyannani's moon Beacon, is heavily populated.

Denebola

Denebola is a three planet system located in the Outer Rim. It's primary planet is Indus, the third planet from the sun and a mostly arid planet with some oceans. Indus has a significant amount of shipbuilding dockyards, and is a strategic point of contest between the Republic and the occupying Confederate Systems.


Gavil

Gavil is a G-Type Main Sequence Star located in the Outer Rim. It's only occupied planet is Tersten. Tersten is a plains-like planet, with high mountain ranges and vast expanses. It's population lives mostly in large cities, with the rest dispersed around the vast countryside. Tersten has recently seen an expansion of Republic influence in response to the Confederate build-up in neighbouring Indus.

Population: 17,234,558,529


The Lordanian Cluster (Otherwise known as the Hyades Cluster) is a grouping of several hundred stars, of which, around fifty have permanent structures built on or around planets. The Cluster is divided into two distinct sovereign states: the Lordanian Republic (officially the Second Lordanian Republic), and the Confederate Systems of Lordania. It is the closest Star Cluster to Sol, and lies between Sol Government, and the Terran Confederacy

In 2531, Sol Central Government and the Lordanian Empire agreed on the surrender of Imperial forces in the cluster, following the end of Imperial Lordania. Disagreements with the newly forming republic and the Rebellion forces, allying themselves under the Terran Confederacy resulted in the formation of a new state, leaving the Cluster partitioned, with the Inner Rim and much of the Cluster under Sol occupation and the Outer Rim under Confederate occupation. These circumstances soon became the basis for the division of the cluster by the two supernations, exacerbated by their inability to agree on the terms of Lordanian independence. The Confederate States received backing from Terra in opposition to the pro-Sol government, leading to the cluster's division into two political entities: the Second Lordanian Republic, and the Confederate Systems of Lordania. To date, both entities continue to compete with each other as the sole legitimate government of all of the Lordanian Cluster.


History

In the tumultuous final decades of the 24th century, Humanity took their first steps towards the stars. One such star that Humanity explored was Aldebaran. Arriving in the Hyades Cluster, Humanity found numerous planets to colonise. Due to the proximity of neighbouring stars, the ability to expand rapidly was exploited from the very beginning.

The Terran Commonwealth sent colonists to an interesting system, ripe for colonisation. The system contained two continental planets. This was named the Lordanian System, and Lordania and Kingston were founded. In just under 50 years, the colonisation efforts had paid off. By the time of the Earthly transition from the Terran Confederation to Sol Government, Lordania had become a fledgling cluster of 8 planets.

There are many un-governed systems in the Cluster, though they are small enough to slip through the cracks of government. The two notable exceptions to this are Sarstusca and Mjonder.


Second Lordanian Republic

Confederate Systems of Lordania

Regions

Within the Cluster, there are three primary Rims, the Inner Rim, the Middle Rim (Also called Expansion Rim), and the Outer Rim.

Inner Rim

Lordania

Lordania is the Capital of the Lordanian Republic, and is a seven planet system. Two of these planets are heavily populated. These planets are Lordania and Kingston.

Yuklid

Yuklid is a binary star system in the Inner Rim. It has five planets, of which only Yuklid V is occupied.

Ondero

Ondero is a trinary star system located in the Inner Rim of the Lordanian Cluster. It has three planets, of which the only occupied planet is Ondero, named after the Star. Following the decline of the Empire, Ondero's government solidified into a Bureaucratic Dictatorship that renounced the evils of the Empire. This has allowed the Planet's government to remain in charge, and is a source of great debate within the Lordanian political community.

Her

Her is a singular star system in the Inner Rim. It only has one occupied planet, Retter. Retter was colonised by a large proportion of Germanic people around the turn of the 25th century.

Iot Sgr

Iot Sgr is a binary star system, with one larger B-Type star and a smaller brown dwarf, located in the Inner Rim of the Lordanian Cluster. It has one occupied planet, Iodas VII, the seventh moon orbiting the Gas Giant Iodas.

Cep

Cep is a brown dwarf located near the edge between the Inner Rim and the Expansion (Mid) Rim. This system has several dwarf planets located in the system's vast asteroid belt. These planets are heavily industrialised and serve as a transit point for freighters heading into and out of the Inner Rim.

Iust

Iust is a four planet system located in the Inner Rim. It has only one occupied planet, a mostly flat world called Cinaen.

Mid Rim

Nsusta

Nsusta is a brown dwarf system located in the Mid Rim of the Lordanian Cluster. It's hyperlane path renders it only accessible via Gessshire. The system is mostly used for scientific research into related metaphysics.

Morsal

Morsal is a binary star system with six planets, located in the Mid Rim. It's capital planet is Indiana, the sixth planet in the system. Indiana is a temperate, woodland world, with little to distinguish it. It is home to roughly 5,300,000 people, and is a member of the Lordanian Republic.

Teraniapha

Teraniapha is a single star system with two planets. Laredo is the system's only populated planet, governed by a Constitutional Monarchy. It is only of the few systems in the cluster to have a Monarchy, and it's entry into the Republic has been hotly contested by the Confederate Systems of Lordania, declaring 'Royalty in the Republic to be nothing but treason to the ideas it stands for.'

Lucinaer

Lucinaer is a binary star system in the Mid Rim. It's only occupied planet is Cinu, a desert planet with similar conditions as of Earth's Middle East. It's capital is Al-Mular, and it served as a primary destination for many Arabic Colonists from Sol.

Gessshire

Gessshire is a single star system located in the Mid Rim. Gessshire is a B-Type star system, and it's occupied planet, Lorriman, is a frozen arctic world. Because of it's size and location, Lorriman has been home to the Lordanian Institute of Science for over fifty years, and serves as the primary base of operations for any research efforts in the Cluster.

Sapphire

Sapphire is a B-Type single star system located in the Mid Rim. It is home to one planet, also named Sapphire. The planet's blue hue caused by the star earned it the name Sapphire by colonists.

Biesel

Biesel is a system located in the Lordanian Mid Rim. It is a populous and major planet in the Cluster. NanoTrasen has it's Lordanian Offices on Biesel, along with several other Trans-Stellar Corporations.

Patton

Patton is a G-Type single star system located in the Mid Rim. It is a vital centre of trade to the Lordanian Inner and Outer Rim, however, Biesel seems to be on course to overtake the system as Lordania's busiest trade hub. With a population of 50,000,000 it is the second most populated system in the Mid Rim.

Mechis

Mechis is a binary star system located in the Mid Rim. Of it's seven planets, only one is occupied, Whizza.

Chardaan

Chardaan is a trinary star system located in the Mid Rim. Due to this, it has no habitable planets. However, on it's closest planet, Chard, a sizable mining colony has been established on the harsh, volcanic planet.

Outer Rim

Narvoo

Narvoo is a two planet system in the Outer Rim. Historically Narvoo was used as a homeworld for the Resistance Movement until 2510. It's primary planet is Olaer.

Visser

Visser is a three planet system in the Outer Rim. It's Capital is Visser City, and is a Technocratic Dictatorship, in which it's planet is governed by a benevolent AI.

Ninae

Ninae is a black hole system, and perhaps the youngest black hole in the galaxy. The System has no planets, but large portions of space nearing the event horizon is filled with the remains of the Battle of Ninae, which took place in 2528.

Indu

Indu is a three planet system located in the Outer Rim. It's primary planet is Indus, the third planet from the sun and a mostly arid planet with some oceans. Indus has a significant amount of shipbuilding dockyards, and is a strategic point of contest between the Republic and the occupying Confederate Systems.

Katadda
