Glorious Empire: Former Aslan separatist state centered in Goertel Subsector of Trojan Reach. The Empire, formed by the Tokouea'we clan in 650, expanded militantly. By the 900s, a lack of resources forced expansion to a halt, but by then the Empire had grown to embrace 13 worlds.

Although dominated by Aslan, about one-third of the Empire's population was human. Humans provided cheap labor, while the Aslan enjoyed government and professional positions. Outsiders found the Empire's society more oppressive than glorious - a state run through forced subservience and aggression.

The Empire was reabsorbed into the Hierate's trans-Rift colonies in 1119. -tr TD 20
