Worlds > Arzawa II
million (33% human,
21% Than, 15% Vedran,
Arzawa II is now a world belonging to the Than Hegemony.
Mostly inhabited by humans living in modified Than mating
groups and caste structures, Arzawa II maintains a largely
resource-based economy which provides the other planets
in the Hegemony with fish and other marine products.
In CY 10065, Arzawa was the site of a vicious pogrom
against its Nightsider population, a minority blamed
by many for the depletion of the planet's fisheries.
Famous for its beautiful beaches and vast, global ocean,
Arzawa II has no native sentient species, but a seemingly
endless supply of edible aquatic lifeforms. It has for
centuries been a favorite vacation spot for water-loving
Commonwealth citizens and provides a less-crowded alternative
to other popular vacation locales. The Hatti archipelago,
near the Arzawan equator, is the location of a major
High Guard shore station which supports its gigantic
orbital spaceports and drydock facilities.
