Fithpa is a minor world with a very oppressive, yet still popular government. In past decades a revolt in the society eventually led to support for a popular Council. Instituting draconian measures, the new government regained control, at the cost of personal freedom. Now that the emergency is long past, the citizens are finding the government is less than willing to cede control to the people.
While the government remains popular (through judicious use of propaganda, as well as the aforementioned laws), there is rising resentment, and problems are beginning to show. One major problem has been sabotage. These acts, combined with the ever-increasing crackdowns by government officials, has led to a decline in the technological base of the society in recent years. Efforts to correct this decline by the government have proven ineffective, with blame being shifted back to the radical elements rising up in the society. It appears a vicious circle of cause and effect is again taking hold, and with the government’s current level of intrusiveness, it seems there are few other options for officials to take once events once again get out of hand.
And it certainly looks like they will, once again. Those outside observers who have managed to get a current feel on the current situation state it is only a matter of time before something big happens. Unfortunately, they claim, with the current level of oppression on Fithpa, whatever happens is likely to involve large-scale bloodshed. Forces from outside Fithpa (nearby governments, interstellar aid agencies, and so forth) are attempting to alleviate or assist the situation in order to avoid potential hardship, but the government of Fithpa is not apparently listening to this advice. What happens here remains to be seen, but once something does occur, it is not likely to be a good situation. Those merchants still conducting business on Fithpa are advised to be on their guard at all times when visiting.
NOTE: These systems, as generated, are generic. Referees will need to modify the system and descriptions to fit their campaign needs.
