Auva Subsector: Auva Subsector has an estimated population in 1202 of approximately 688.35 million, a decline of over 99 percent from its Pre-Collapse population. Its highest population is 562 million, at Freiwelt, and it's highest tech level is 11 at Beltan.

Auva Subsector (historical): Auva Subsector had an estimated population in 1117 of approximately 168.8 billion. Its highest population was 71.05 billion at Gransha (Perdu), and its highest tech level was 14 at Jedda, Beltan and nine other worlds.

Subsector Notes

Auva Subsector is the home of Alpha Leonis' solitary pocket empire, the Beltan Empire. The worlds of the empire are detailed below.

Freiwelt (1018) is not a full member of the Beltan Empire - only the nation of Arcadia. It is currently fighting the Purity Front for planetary dominance - and with the huge influx of aid since it joined the Empire in 1200 it has been slowly but steadily winning the battle.

Nation UWPs are: Arcadia D657746-9 M Pm:8
Purity E6578AF-5 Pm:2

Other minor nations are either in the Purity Front, or the Arcadian League.

The Military base is operated by the Empire, and supports both Arcadia and forward based Naval units. It also has a comprehensive ABM network to protect Arcadia against nuclear attack.

Purity has been forced to look for outside aid, and Kranak had provided some TL-9 equipment in exchange for relic equipment.

Werldt (1019) fell hard in the collapse, but was such a hospitable world that more than 50% of the population were able to survive the devastation. The Empire's forces deposed the TED of Balash, Bakarish Nefud, after a Beltanian Merchant was destroyed by missile fire from his realm in 1185. Nefud escaped to the wilderness of the Untended Zones on the Continent of Pavanne. Here, amongst the ruins of 'Grain King' harvesters and wild crops he plots his revenge. Minor states have been allowed their independence - as long as they recognise Beltan's position as their protector. The infusion of Beltan's expertise has raised the tech level of Balash by five points, and a starport has been constructed on Balash's western coast. Balash is now operated as a Feudal Technocracy by Nefud's former 'Technical Guard' Commanders. Exploitation of Werldt's mineral resources has begun, as has the mining of the system's two asteroid belts. Arcadia has laid claim to Werldt as a former colony, but the Beltan System Governor has told them the question will be deferred until Freiwelt has a unified government.

Blenkinsop (1119) is another world under the aegis of Beltan. The state of Yellain provides support for Beltanian traffic through the system, and Beltan provides security. The other state on Blenkinsop is the Gostners - sea gypsies who trade fish and edible kelp with Yellain in return for maintenance. Yellain is trying to incorporate them into their government - but has met with only hostility. The starport is minor, all the planet produces of worth is pharmaceutical and chemical extracts. It was incorporated into the Empire in 1182.

Darukaash Zen (1120) planet is inhabited by the Peikderzoon, a minor race. They survive in the low pressure atmosphere by storing oxygen in a body fat-like molecule. They charge up this substance with oxygen when they sleep, and use it to supplement the oxygen they breathe while active during the day. The Solomani never found any trace of their fossils on the planet, and hypothesise that the world was colonised, the Peikderzoon being altered to fit the environment. They have recently started to use compressors to allow them to extend their active period. Talking to a 'Zoon can be a trying experience - they do not have to stop for breath as often as a Human would. Beltanians call them 'Rabbiters' as they tend to 'rabbit on'. Beltan has built a minor Starport here, but their Solomani mistrust of other races has held up development of the world. This world was incorporated into the Empire as an 'Isolated Territory' in 1189. With the death of the Empire's dictator in 1200 it was granted full membership. The Navy has started using the Peikderzoon as spacehands - they can stay outside a ship on maintenance for four times as long as a human given the same standard of Vacc Suit. The Navy plans to use a force consisting of largely of 'Rabbiters' to recover Jump Drive manufacturing equipment from Drydock (1211). If they prove successful it should prove a boon for both the Empire and race relations. Darukaash Zen is run by a very efficient Bureaucracy, the high law level reflects more on the measures needed to survive on such a harsh world.

Alexandria (1216)

Sarmqir (1217) was an important industrial world before the Collapse, all its inhabitants perished when their life support shut off. It's defences will fire at any ship approaching the mainworld, which ironically means that it defends Beltan from attack from that direction. Beaconed fuel dumps on the edge of the inner system allow movement out of the system.

Beltan (1218) The only Empire presence in Peltier (1319) is a minor starport and listening post on the inner moon of the outermost Gas Giant.

Clerkson's (1320) balkanisation is due to the fact that it's two major industries were Starport support and Hunting. Solomani Party member would vacation there to hunt the fast and vicious beasts of it's one continent. The Island Starport was there mainly to facilitate this. With the collapse the Starport was damaged, but not destroyed. Two 'nations' sprung up - the 'RealMen' and the 'Porters'. Interaction was amicable enough - Realmen traded food and furs for the Porter's manufactured goods. With entry into the Empire the port was upgraded. The increasing liberalisation of Beltan has also led to more immigration - mainly to the Realmen. Trade through the port has increased exponentially in the last two years. Most traders prefer to trade with Assinibola through Clerkson and Mafeking, rather than jumping through Agryx and Leiby. It will only be a matter of time before the starport is upgraded to 'C' class. Mineralogical studies are underway to locate the rare ores known to exist here.

Faslane (1418) has a small Navy garrison conducting recovery missions in the old Naval Base. They also man the monitoring station there.

Leiby (1419), a former Transstar Depot, supporting it's activities in the area, it now serves the trade to anti-spinward and to the rim. It has been losing trade recently to Clerkson, but the Navy intends to build a Military Base there which will also upgrade the starport back up to 'B' class. Combined with it's attractive climate should ensure it grows and prospers.
