Two factors make Chemitera a unique and interesting system. The first one is, of course, its extreme level of technology. The other is its unique society. Or rather, societies.
Technically, Chemitera has a single government, which deals with the usual aspects of trade, taxation, diplomacy, and defense. The populace, however, is divided into numerous social groups, each with distinct outlooks, behavioral rules/expectations, and even languages. This has a significant impact on local trade and relations, much more so than many other truly balkanized worlds.
Navigating the morass of cultural differences can be “quite perplexing”, so much so that many traders refuse to attempt lengthier negotiations and contracts; such endeavors are best left to local experts, though this can be quite expensive. Even with these local differences, however, Chemitera’s citizenry are very open and accepting of visitors – no matter what their own attitudes might be towards the other cultural groups. However, visitors who show outright favoritism towards another or rival group tend to run into significant difficulties.
Because of these cultural differences and issues, Chemitera’s regional influence is greatly reduced. Even so, the world is still highly influential.
Several other worlds in the system have been settled by various groups. These colonies/settlements were mainly established by groups wishing to escape/avoid the Belt’s cultural entanglements, and have been marginally successful in succeeding at this goal.

This is my 17th hand-generated “System of the Day” using the Traveller5 rules. My goal is to publish one random system per day in 2020.
This system was generated by hand with a set of dice I have owned for over 30 years, using the Traveller5 rules. Feel free to use this system in your own campaigns, but please do not publish them for profit, nor publish without obtaining prior permission. Thank you!

As always, comments and input are appreciated. Keep On Travelling!
