The Economic Council of Zibao rules the world’s society and economy with an iron fist – and the citizens couldn’t be happier about this. The world has had its share of serious economic problems in past centuries, and the Council has managed to reverse the world’s fortunes within a century.
Zibao is now a prosperous, yet still poor world. But everyone is being fed, crime is under control (though there are rumors several organized crime lords are on the Council), and the world’s industries are becoming a force in the region’s economy.
There are a number of newer settlements and corporate operations scattered throughout the inner system. These are mainly mining operations, extracting resources for Zibao’s growing industries. The next world in from Zibao (orbit #4) is noticable lacking in operations or colonies. Only a single attempt was made to colonize the world, centuries ago, and the colonists from that era all died under violent circumstances. No one knows the exact cause of these deaths, however. As this event occurred many years ago, it will likely never be known exactly how the colony met its end, and the world is considered “cursed” by local society. Every suggestion to make another colony attempt is almost violently shunned by the citizens, and no new suggestions have come up in the last several decades.
The society located on the tenth world of the primary star is a “hidden colony”, discovered on accident by a corporate survey team several years ago. The colonists refused any assistance, claiming to not need any, and have refused all efforts at regular contact after initially being discovered. No one knows where these settlers arrived from, nor how long they have been there, though the survey team which discovered them estimates the colonists have been on the world for “some time”, possibly on the order of centuries. If this is truly the case, the world’s citizens show little signs of inbreeding, hinting at possible regular, yet undiscovered, offworld contact.
NOTE: These systems, as generated, are generic. Referees will need to modify the system and descriptions to fit their campaign needs.
