Vegan Autonomous District: After the pyrrhic victory
over the Solomani at Terra
in 1002, the Imperium found that it
could not completely conquer and absorb the rest of the Solomani
Sphere. The Imperial high command decided to create the Vegan
Autonomous District to act as a counterweight to the remnants of the Solomani
Confederation. The Vegans have complete internal control over their
district, but free passage is guaranteed for Imperial citizens and goods.
Although many factors have contributed to the present
peace and stability along the Solomani Rim, it cannot be denied that the
creation of the Vegan Autonomous District has achieved its original purpose.
The worlds of the Vegan Autonomous District are under
a single, centralized government. State power is contained in a civil service
and is chosen and promoted by competitive examinations. -ld
