Alaoyaah (1714 Dark Nebula B331758-A): Alaoyaah is tightly in the grasp of a feudal technocracy which might be better described as a technocratic oligarchy. The ruling body, the Ftaoeaktaih manufacturing cartel, holds the reins of every aspect of life on Alaoyaah. The world was first colonized by the cartel as a mining and manufacturing site, a venture which went extremely well.

Trouble cropped up a few years ago, when a number of Solomani humans were able to get appointments to the administrative board of the on-planet operations. Using their positions to gain inside information, these individuals were soon able to buy up the majority of the cartel's stock. From then on, they began to impose higher and higher quotas on their already overworked employees, forcing them to buy through a company store, and not permitting contact with other worlds in the Hierate. The bulk of the population on Alaoyaah are virtually slaves to the administrative board.

Because of the potential for labor riots, or even civil war, the Traveller's Aid Society has classified the Alaoyaah system an amber zone. -dn S&A
