Protectorate of Cthonia: Member state of the Solomani
Confederation. A mutual defense and trading coalition, the Protectorate
worries about its uneasy position on the Imperial border. It maintains
a large, sophisticated fleet against this threat, independent of Confederation
control. Although legally entitled to such a navy by the Charter, the Cthonian
armada has given cause for concern to Confederation officials.
The Confederation might well intervene, if it were not
for the Cthonian Navy's unique training methods. The Cthonians employ an
innovative technique - "electro-psychoanalysis" to the popular media -
which combines psychological testing with intense study of neural activity.
Using this technique, the Cthonians can single out future leaders at a
very young age and recruit them into military schools. As the Protectorate
has recently opened the program to other Solomani
worlds, the Confederation stands more to gain by leaving the Cthonians
in peace. -sta S&A
