Sui'Tang is known as "Old Blue Eye" to spacers in the region. Around half a million years ago, a massive asteroid or comet slammed into world. The resulting, massive crater became a repository for most of the world's normal rain runoff, and is today the sole ocean on the world. The round body of water appears incongruous against the brown and yellow background, and gives the world its name.

Sui'Tang is a former colony of Magash, and was a battleground between the two major factions that used to dominate the world. With the homeworld too inhospitable for major conflict, proxy wars on the colony became an acceptable substitute. Exhaustion with this cruel rule increased the locals agitation, and independence movements began to wage war against the homeworld's forces. Finally the world received its independence under the Rep Reforms in 1158.

The world's main economy is grain farming. Magashi commercial concerns dragged the systems almost pristine cometary ice down to the world's surface to irrigate massive grain fields that produced food for the homeworld nations. This economy continues today, though with independence, Magashi buyers have to compete with the interstellar market in general.
