The citizens of Gampin voted against evacuation in a 1133 referendum. Uncertain of their future in the new Regency, and confident of their chances against Vampire Fleets, the population opted, by a lopsided 88% to 12% margin, to take their chances outside the Quarantine. For the first few years of the Quarantine, the world was left entirely on its own by the Regency Navy and security services, and Regency popular opinion was disdainful of the Gampinians. After the Rape of Trin, the Navy discovered that the locals were prospering on their own, and Naval patrols frequently visit the world and its friendly Imperial culture population.
Gampin's population lives in several deep rift valleys near the equator. Here thick forests and rugged mountains cut off population centers from each other, and overland travel is difficult to accomplish. The population subsists on crops and domesticated animals raised on the valley floors or in nearby mountainside terraces. A substantial food surplus has always existed, and the world provides nearly all that is needed for human survival. Vampire raids have occured, but none of them have managed to penetrate the highly effective air defenses that protect these valleys.
