A shining beacon of civilization in the wilderness. A center of commerce and trade. A meeting place for national officials. The first step into the wild frontier of the Gamma Quadrant for all the brave souls wandering the stars. Wealth for all those that desire it. Adventure for all those that seek it. A new life, for all those that want it.

Welcome to Liu Xiu.




Welcome to the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone!


What is the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone?
Liu Xiu is a star system located in the core-ward sectors of the Gamma Quadrant. Here , it is our hope that nations from all across the galaxy can come and engage in trade and diplomacy with one another to their hearts content. The system capital is the former Imperial Star Republic Enclave of Graywinter, while all major planets have been designated a special administrative capital. These administrative centers are points of contact for the Liu Xiu Administrative Council and the Imperial Star Republic, and are strictly meant to oversee the infrastructure and logistics of native facilities and inhabitants of the planets they are located on.

Who owns the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone?
Liu Xiu is considered part of the Imperial Star Republic of Vocenae, though due to the sheer distance between Liu Xiu and the rest of the Imperial Star Republic, Liu Xiu had been designated as a 'special administrative region', meaning that it is allowed to approach policy and other governmental concerns with almost complete autonomy, allowing it to more easily serve the needs of its registered citizens and those of its foreign partners.

I wish to get involved with Liu Xiu, how do I do that?
Liu Xiu's vast stellar territory is largely open to any and all galactic nations that wish to take part in this grand venture. To this end we continue to support and operate the Enclave and Outpost system that was set in place by the star system's previous owners. Please see the following post for the Application form for establishing a Enclave or Outpost within the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone, and for a full listing of active Enclaves and Outposts.

What is the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone?
Liu Xiu is a open Future Tech setting, which means it is in itself NOT a singular roleplaying thread, a closed roleplaying group, or otherwise removed from the greater Future Tech (FT) community. That means players who submit an application for a Enclave or Outpost (details below) are free to use Liu Xiu as a launch point or a central setting for any Future Tech related RP. This means if you want to use Liu Xiu as the starting point for a crime RP thread that ends up mostly taking place on the other side of the galaxy, that is perfectly fine. If you want to do a economic, diplomacy, murder, or corporate/military espionage thread within a Liu Xiu location, that is also perfectly fine (please note that permission to use other player locations should be cleared with the owner of that location first). You can even just mention Liu Xiu in passing and you're using the system as it is intended to be used!

What this also means is that actions in or involving Liu Xiu can influence other threads and stories within the Future Tech community, and the actions of Future Tech players throughout the galaxy across multiple threads can cause Liu Xiu to change and adapt to the current IC environment. Liu Xiu is meant to act as a place where nations from across the FT galaxy can have a mutual interest point, allowing to wider collaborative works among FT players and strengthening the Future Tech community as a whole.

In short, Liu Xiu is a sandbox. Yes, there are rules for the sandbox, but these are largely there to maintain said sandbox. More like structural walls than limitations.

Who owns the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone?
Vocenae, and as the owner and operator of this thread, I do reserve to right to restrict or remove players that do not abide by the OOC rules of this thread, NationStates, and these forums.

What happened to the previous owner of Liu Xiu?
The previous owner Dreadful Sagittarius, chose to head in a different direction with his nation and was kind enough to transfer control of this project over to me.

I wish to get involved with Liu Xiu, how do I do that?
Liu Xiu' is open to nearly all roleplayers within the Future Tech community. As Liu Xiu is, as stated above, an open setting. The second post on this thread will include more detailed information on how to apply for a Enclave or Outpost within the Liu Xiu sandbox.




MAJOR LOCALES OF THE LIU XIU SPECIAL ECONOMIC ZONE


Liu Xiu is a older G-Class star that is roughly five billion years old. Also referred to as 'Xiu Prime', the star is, as expected, a extremely important fixture for life in the system. At present, there are only a few facilities in close orbit around the star, most notably the Kieros Array, funded by the Kiith Federation.
Houyi is a small, rocky, airless world that circles Liu Xiu Prime at 0.3 astronomical units, making it the closest planet to the star. Houyi is also the smallest of the non-moon planets and is roughly the same size as Jiwao's moon Fenghuang though is smaller than Kythira's moon Pylos. Due to the planet's proximity to Liu Xiu Prime and the intense solar heat and radiation thrown off by the star there has been no development on the planet's crater riddled surface save for the monitoring outpost of Oasis, which has been established following the Kiith Federation's handover of the Kieros Array to the LXSEZ Administrative Council. Although Oasis is currently the only manned station on Houyi and it's residents are tasked with monitoring the planet and the Kieros Array, Houyi's administrative office is located on Pinnacle.
Pinnacle is the smallest of the three terrestrial planets in Liu Xiu, but is much closer to Liu Xiu, making it a warmer planet than Jiwao. Pinnacle's landmass is almost non-existent, with almost ninety-three percent of the planet's surface being covered by water. Due to its close proximity to Liu Xiu, and it's own two small moons, Pinnacle's oceans are in a state of constant turbulence. Much of Pinnacle's habitable landmasses are in tightly grouped archipelagos of mountainous islands, most of which are long dormant volcanoes. It is on these mountains that the miniscule population of Pinnacle make their home. Due to the small amount of available land, the Liu Xiu Administrative Council has consolidated or moved the non-foreign residents of these islands to the plantary administrative capital of of Hira, leaving many archipelagos open for foreign immigration. In orbit, Pinnacle is orbited by two large planetoids that have been classified as Wayfarer and Strider. Both have somewhat erratic orbits and rotation, and travel to and from these moons is highly restricted for safety reasons. Pinnacle's lack of landmass may prevent traditional tourism and travel, but there is a flourishing industry of windsailing and other fun past-times. For more information, please contact the Pinnacle Board of Tourism in Hira.
Taen is the second planet of the Liu Xiu system, and sits comfortably within the system's 'Goldilocks Zone', which allows the planet to have a much more favorable climate and terrain than that of Jiwao or Pinnacle. In fact, most of the planet's terrain is incredibly gentle in comparison to its planetary siblings; most of the planet is covered in vast plains and periodic highland steppes. Flowing violet rivers of Taen's water analogue divide the otherwise landmass, and eventually empty out into two medium sized seas that power Taen's atmosphere. However, Taen's atmosphere is largely toxic to all known non-native species. All travelers outside of the arcology dome will be required to use a breath mask and their native air. It is also advised not to drink Taen's water unfiltered or without any sort of anti-bacterial injection as the water will induce severe cramping and infection. It is, outside of it's atmosphere, can be traversed in simple clothing and does not require the use of a pressure suit or other sealed traversal gear outside of a breath mask. Despite this, Taen is a remarkably fertile world that bears many garden world traits which make it Liu Xiu's primary agricultural world due to the heavily symbiotic relationship between Taen's flora and fauna. It is this relationship that prevents any true planetary terraforming operations to remove the poisonous atmosphere, which would irreparably damage the interconnected biosphere and thus ruin the world's fertility. There are several settlements on Taen, all encased within specialized arcologies that are tailored to match their inhabitants preferred atmospheres, and are commonly seen in great clusters that stretch for kilometers. It is within these massive arcologies that the primary food production and distribution takes place, as Taen's incredibly fertile soil only loses some of its potency when exposed to oxygen or other breathable gases, allowing for more traditional foods to be grown. These arcology domes also house the massive processing centers for foodstuffs grown in Taen's open atmosphere, allowing for it to be purified and made ready for distribution by the equally massive distribution centers within the domes. The planetary administrative capital is the Jarilo Arcology Dome.
Jiwao is the most openly hospitable planet with the star system, and third most planet from Liu Xiu as well as being the system's largest terrestrial world, sitting slightly closer to the outer edge of Liu Xiu Prime's 'Goldilocks Zone'. Because of this, Jiwao's climate is slightly colder than that of Taen or Pinnacle, but is far within the acceptable boundaries for most humanoid life, having stable gravity and a breathable, non-poisonous atmosphere, though Jiwao suffers the highest percentage of rain of all the terrestrial planets. Jiwao is a planet is rich in mineral deposits, and is moderately populated despite the formidable climate and rugged terrain that consists of towering mountains, steppes, deep valleys and dense forests. With the purchase of Liu Xiu, many former citizens of the Phanes Republic have left, leaving many smaller settlements open for reclamation and repopulation, a promising new start for anyone who would feel more at home in the wilderness than within one of Jiwao's larger settlements and cities. For more things to do on Jiwao, please contact the Jiwao Board of Tourism. The planetary administrative capital is the city of Stormcrest, while the Liu Xiu system administration is located in the former Imperial Star Republic Enclave of Greywinter.

NOTICE: Following the collapse of the Jiwao Skylift and the damage to the planet associated with it, all tether impact sites and locations are to be considered restricted to all non-authorized traffic by order of the Liiu Xiu Administrative Council and Security Division. Failure to adhere to this restriction will result in immediate arrest and detainment.
Fenghuang is Jiwao's single moon, notable for its distinctively vivid amber-gold coloring. While beautiful, Fenghuang has no atmosphere and very low gravity, requiring the use of environmental suits when out on the surface. Fenghuang's near side has many worn mountain ranges and ridges, along with several large craters while the moon's far side is, as expected, largely eroded by countless meteorite impacts. Fenghuang's primary use in the past has been relatively cheap helium-3 and production of basic fuel needs for local short-range vessels , as well as a free gravitational slingshot point for quicker exit from Jiwao. Fenghuang was previously closed to public ventures, but is now open for all applicants to claim Enclave or Outpost space. FengHuang's administrative capital is Tian Base.
Port Expedition is the newly rechristened star port network in high orbit over Jiwao. It is here that most of Liu Xiu's free trade is done, as well as the start and is the first port of call for any visitor coming to or from the star system. Port Expedition also hosts several foreign enclaves and outposts, and is expected to have several major additions added to it as time passes. Port Expedition has no special administrative capital on any of its myriad stations and instead delegates control to the system capital of Graywinter.
Kythira, formerly known as Kappa, is Liu Xiu's largest gas giant, sitting at roughly seven astronomical units from Liu Xiu. Kythira's atmosphere is rich in helium and hydrogen, which has made it the main starship fuel depot in Liu Xiu. Kythira has several major moons and a insignificant ring system along with a very large amount of gravitationally bound asteroid companions. Due to the importance of Kythira's otherwise remote location, the Liu Xiu Administrative Council has constructed a orbiting military installation, the Watchtower, that will oversee security of the many other orbital facilities and freighters that do business around the gas giant. Watchtower also serves as the administrative capital for local Kythira space.

NOTICE: The Liu Xiu Security Fleet will NOT respond to distress calls beyond a distance of 1,100,000km from Kythira. All travelers are advised to stay within the advised trade lanes to and from Kythira for their own safety.
Pylos is one of the largest moons of the gas giant Kythira. Pylos is a hostile world that is covered in lava, and tectonically active due to the massive tidal forces exerted by its parent planet and the other moons around it. Pylos' orbital path leaves it in the shadow of Kythira and that of the gas giant's other large satellites for most of its trip around the massive gas giant, leaving only a handful of days in its revolution when the moon is directly exposed to the light of Liu Xiu Prime The moon has a thick and oppressive atmosphere of sulfur and ash clouds, retaining the heat of the molten surface and mercilessly baking the more stable, rocky plateaus that make up Pylos's landmasses. There is no native life on the surface of Pylos, save for heat resistance microbial fauna. Pylos has been largely ignored due to the inhospitable surface, but recently the Liu Xiu Administrative Council has begun granting entrepreneurs permission for heavy industrial activities on the moon's surface. As part of the local Kythira system and due to its low population, Pylos's administrative center is located within the Watchtower space station.
Corfu is another of Kythira’s numerous moons, similar in size to Pylos though drastically different from it’s sister moon’s hellscape. Orbiting Kythira at a far more forgiving range, Corfu’s mass and distance allows it to slowly rotate on it’s axis, giving it a fifty-three hour day/night cycle. Corfu has a life supporting atmosphere, and contains one major sea and an abundance of large lakes, as well as countless rivers that surge through the planet’s rugged, mountainous terrain. Due to the tidal forces, the moon still experiences geological and tectonic activity, with frequent earthquakes reshaping rivers as new lava flows pour forth from the moon's interior. However, the moon's surface is far more geologically stable than it's sister moon Pylos, and several small settlements and research facilities dot the surface of the moon. The moon’s vegetation is sparse, but small, dense forests of massive half-kilometer high trees have taken root across the moon, creating a small but vibrant ecosystem while large trilobite lifeforms dominate the waterways. As with Pylos, Corfu's administrative center is currently located within the Watchtower space station.
Paxos, formerly known as Lambda, is a small ice giant located approximately thirty-three astronomical units from Liu Xiu Prime, whose atmosphere consists mainly of methane, ammonia and traces of hydrogen and helium. Paxos's location in the outermost reaches of the Liu Xiu system, coupled with its relatively limited harvestable resources have led to the local planetary system largely uninhabited save for a few outlying stations that serve to refuel starships and Maritime Authority shipping checkpoints. While Paxos serves as an adequate location for gravitational slingshot manuevers to and from the inner star system, most starships simply pass the ice giant by. Paxos has a small moon system, largely comprised of a handful of small moons and a few minor captured Trojan asteroids from the nearby Gemini Belt. The small space habitat of Echo Station, the primary administrative hub in the Paxos local area, also orbits the gas giant.

NOTICE: The Liu Xiu Maritime Authority will NOT respond to distress calls outside of the immediate vicinity of Paxos. All travelers are highly advised to stay within the designated and patrolled trade routes to and from the orbit of Paxos for their own safety.
The Gemini Belt, formerly known as 'The Double Belter', is a unique asteroid field that is in fact two large rings of debris that interconnect with one another despite their different orbital paths and elliptic orbit. The primary belt circles Liu Xiu at a distance of thirty-five astronomical units, while the secondary and smaller belt extends of a massive elliptic orbit that takes it nearly to Liu Xiu's Kuiper Belt before swinging wildly back to an almost identical orbital path as the primary belt. It is unknown what exactly caused this peculiar orbit, however that has not stopped individuals from mining the ore-rich asteroids of the far flung dark region of the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone.

NOTICE: The Liu Xiu Security Fleet will NOT respond to distress calls within the Gemini Belt. All travelers are advised to stay within designated and patrolled astronomical trade routes for their own safety.


What are these?
These are the primary stellar and planetary bodies of the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone.
What are they used for?
These locations are expected (though not required) to be the primary points where applicants will locate their Enclaves and Outposts within the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone, as well as the expected primary locations for roleplaying and other storytelling opportunities
Are we required to use them?
No, but it is heavily suggested that you do as they are industrial, economic, and political population centers and contain most of Liu Xiu's residents both foreign and domestic. Operating outside of these areas means you may not have as many roleplay or storytelling opportunities that you might otherwise have if you base your Enclave, Outpost, or roleplay within these areas.
Do we receive any special treatment or punishment for not using these locations?
No, nations that seek to base their Enclaves, Outposts or roleplay outside of the populated areas of the Liu Xiu star system will not receive any special privileges or be given permission In-Character or Out of Character to disregard the rules & regulations of the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone. No nation will be punished Out of Character fro locating their Enclave, Outpost, or roleplay beyond these populated areas, nor will they be officially punished In a In-Character fashion, however as stated in the Liu Xiu Maritime Authority Transity Code (located near the bottom of this post), the Liu Xiu Administrative Council, Maritime Authority, or the Imperial Star Republic of Vocenae is liable nor required to provide aid in the event that a hazardous situation occurs in non-populated or non-patrolled areas of the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone.
Kythira and Paxos used to be Kappa and Lambda, why did their names change?
To match the naming scheme used for other planets in the system, and because Kythira and Paxos sound cooler.




ADMINISTRATIVE CAPITALS OF THE LIU XIU SPECIAL ECONOMIC ZONE


Greywinter once served as the Imperial Star Republic's only presence within the Gamma Quadrant, serving largely as a point of contact between Liu Xiu's former owners, the Phanes Republic, and the Vocian star state. Serving as the de facto administrative capital of the entire Liu Xiu star system, Greywinter has undergone a radical and intense transformation, changing the once quiet backwater into a bustling fortress. Once consisting of a few landing pads, a maintenance hangar, a small habitation area and administrative offices all built into the side of a large cliff-face, the number of landing pads have tripled, growing with size to accomodate the larger starships of the new administration, as well as the Maritime Authority and Security Division. These landing pads now link to the large underground maintenance and storage bays while the row of smaller administrative buildings on the surface that once served as civilian and import/export processing have been transformed into large barricades that are themselves topped with defensive batteries and security checkpoints that guard the main entrance to Greywinter. The entrance to Greywinter has undergone large changes as well; the once distinctive outcropping of glass that revealed the main administrative offices of the facility have been covered with heavy plating, and indeed most of the surrounding cliff-face has received similar treatment. Within the facility the former habitation areas have become barracks and armories for the Security Division forces stationed there, with the former maintenance garage being expanded to service and store several heavy armor vehicles. The former administrative offices have been reinforced and expanded to better serve the much larger demands of running a entire star system, and much larger habitation units are found deep below the planet's surface. These habitation units form a grid-like hive of living, dining and recreational units for the hard-working members of the administration. All levels of the facility are linked by elevators and stairwells, as well as interior security checkpoints both for visitors and on-site staff. Deep beneath the surface facility are the offices and on-site living quarters for the members of the Liu Xiu Administrative Council and other high ranking officials within the Security Division and Maritime Authority. At the deepest point, beyond the internal power facilities, are several safe rooms that are built to withstand a direct strike from a orbital attack and protect the Administrative Council from any would-be invaders.
Stormcrest is currently the administrative capital for the planet Jiwao following the Wildfire Crisis and the destruction of Piraeus City. Built at the start of Vocian ownership of the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone, Stormcrest was constructed along the shores of one of Jiwao's larger landlocked seas and has few of the dramatic flairs or 'organic' urban growth that was famous in Piraeus. Instead Stormcrest's layout, while sprawling, is meticulously planned with broad avenues and symmetrical streets and city blocks. Stormcrest appears almost dreary to the eye, with consisting largely of sprawling and low structures of traditional Vocian modern architecture. The largest buildings by far are the habitation blocs that link directly to commercial and industrial centers. More sprawling than rising, the city's skyline has few of the skyscrapers that Piraeus was famous for, and lacks the distinctive white colors that Piraeus was known for, instead being largely featureless industrial gray. Built to serve as a industrial refining and distribution center for nearby developing planetary mining operations, Stormcrest was expected to be a 'slow growth' city, with a very low population that would, as the nearby industries matured, eventually grow to fill the vacant habitation blocks. With the events of the Wildfire Crisis and the transfer of civilian administration and rescued civilian populations from the affected areas of the Skylift Collapse, Stormcrest has taken in the massive amounts of refugee populations that have fled to Liu Xiu during the Great Displacement continues to affect the galaxy. Currently the only 'slum' areas still populated by refugees that are still undergoing processing and housing re-assignment is the micro-arcology known locally as 'Fridge City'. This crowded, confined area of multiple levels and habitats built on top of one another is slated for removal within the next year.
The Piraeus Restricted Zone was once Piraeus City, the administrative capital of the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone and widely considered to be the 'white pearl' of the star system, a bustling, modern metropolis of towering white skyscrapers that was the 'heart' of the star system, connected to space by the Jiwao Skylift, a space elevator constructed by the Phanes Republic during their ownership of the star system. Piraeus was also the home to most of the planet's native inhabitants and former Phanite nationalists (known as Phanislavs). During the events that came to be known as the Wildfire Crisis, terrorists detonated a large explosive device at a critical point of the Skylift, causing the massive space elevator to snap in half, sending the upper station flying out into space and the lower portion of the elevator to tumble back onto the planet's surface, utterly devastating Piraeus and large portions of Jiwao's surface. The attacks left a majority of the city's 3.2 million inhabitants dead or trapped beneath the rubble for days before recovery units could extract them to safety. The surviving civilian, commercial and administrative populations have since been relocated to the city of STormcrest, which was unaffected by the Skylift collapse, and to this day efforts continue to recover the remains of those that were lost. Although plans are being made to salvage and restore the city, at this time all that is left of the 'white pearl' is a graveyard of shattered buildings and rubble.

NOTICE: The Liu Xiu Administrative Council and the Liu Xiu Security Division have prohibited any non-authorized traffic in the immediate vicinity of Piraeus. Any attempts to enter the city without authorization or Security Division escort will result in an immediate arrest and detainment.
Tian is an aging utilitarian base that is located beneath the regolith of Fenghuang's surface. originally designed as a industrial base, Tian is a dirty and crowded network of simplistic habitation tunnels that surround the subterranean factory and storage areas. As more modern facilities are built elsewhere on Fenghuang, Tian is seeing an much needed exodus of personnel and their families, much to the relief of the newly installed administrative staff.
Hira is a simplistic city on top of one of Pinnacle's larger islands. By no means visually arresting or architecturally impressive, Hira is meant to house and shelter large numbers of Pinnacle's relocated native population in comfort, while coordinating logistics and infrastructure across the ocean planet. Hira's largest draw is the large space port built onto the sheer cliffs below the city, but well above the dangerous waves of Pinnacle's planet-spanning ocean.
The Jarilo Arcology Dome is a large enclosed structure on the surface of Taen. Built to keep out Taen's poisonous atmosphere, Jaril, like most other domed structures on the planet, is designed to maximize food production with minimal interruption. The dome encompasses miles of fields, and the most notable structures are the massive warehouses that the large automated farming drones are stored, along with the towering storage silos which hold untold numbers of foodstuffs. Jarilo's population is largely maintenance and engineering staff for drone and starport maintenance, along with the planet's administrative staff, and is located along the northern curvature of Jarilo's dome. The small, uninteresting city sits immediately next to the massive tunnel that leads to Jarilo's starport, which is constantly busy with the export of food to the greater Liu Xiu system.
The Watchtower Military Base is a utilitarian structure designed to protect and defend the gas mining facilities in and around Kappa's local space. It is a wide, domed structure not unlike the Jaril Arcology Dome. Very obviously a military station, it is heavily armored and contains a spire that hangs 'under' the primary structure. There is one visible docking bay, around which is several polyhedral towers that make up the administrative section. All other information on the Watchtower base is classified.
Echo Station is a small administrative outpost located in orbit around Paxos, the outermost planet located within the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone. Echo Station serves largely as the first or last checkpoint for starships entering or departing the Liu Xiu system. Echo Station is a small and utilitarian design, and thus does not permit any non-authorized personnel on-board, barring extremely special circumstances.


What are these Administrative Capitals for?
The Administrative capitals of the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone act as my own Enclaves and Outposts within the system. They are designed to be used as general points of official contact with representatives of the Liu Xiu ruling body, the Administrative Council, or for my nation, the Imperial Star Republic. That means you can uses these locations for official functions between myself and your characters or nations, or simply as setting for any roleplays or The Compendium stories.
Does that mean anyone can use these locations without permission?
No. As they are my direct point of interaction with the rest of the Liu Xiu system, you must contact me when using these locations. This does not mean that I have to become directly involved with your RP or Compendium story in any In-Character fashion should you not desire, but this is simply so that I know they are being used and so I can give you additional information beyond what is located within this thread on the specific locales that you are using.
How do I contact you about using these locations? Do we use this thread?
No. This thread is for Enclave and Outpost applications only. To contact me with Out of Character questions, the best way is to contact me via the Future Tech community's primary hub: The NSFT Discord Server. If you are unable to use Discord or have limited access to the Internet, please contact me via telegram. Do not use this thread for Out of Character communication. Thank you.




OFFICIAL LAWS OF THE LIU XIU SPECIAL ECONOMIC ZONE


I. Do not attempt to conquer Liu Xiu unless part of a larger RP that has the agreement of ALL involved nations.
II. Don't attack someone else's Enclave without permission.
III. Planetary Enclaves in general need to be no larger than a smallish city. Liu Xiu is, after all, still considered to be newly colonized. Enclaves in space have a bit more wiggle room to be larger, but still try to stay away from HEUG STARBASE ARGLEBARGLE. That is not to say that Enclaves are forever stuck that size, please feel free to develop and grow your Enclave so long as you don't get crazy and start taking up huge swathes of planetary space with them.
IV. The focus of Liu Xiu is primarily for non-militaristic encounters, so if you simply have to have military vessels included with your Enclave/Outpost application, they're going to have to be the equivalent of a Space Humvee. You will be allowed one or two small ships for immediate Enclave/Outpost defense. Anything larger without prior clearance from me will result in me having to smack you on the nose with the rules and telling you to change it. After all, you wouldn't guard a modern day embassy in Washington DC with a tank, would you?
V. Do not undertake any large scale actions (such as bombings or other aggressive attacks on the system) without prior approval from me. Yes, Liu Xiu is meant to change and adapt to the actions of players across the whole of the galaxy, large scale events that will change how the system works needs to be cleared with me beforehand.
VI. Nations that operate partially or primarily within Closed Roleplaying Groups are not permitted.


I. All nations who apply and have applied for Enclave or Outpost status will not be allowed more than two small military ships within the system of Liu Xiu unless otherwise cleared by the Liu Xiu Administrative Council and the Imperial Star Republic.
II. All Enclaves and Outposts must not be militarized. Evidence of such will result in the immediate ejection of the offending nation and closure of its Enclave and Outposts. Enclaves and Outposts do retain the right to hold personal defensive weapons as registered with the Liu Xiu Administrative Council and Maritime Authority.
III. All stellar traffic regardless of port of origin or port of deposit will adhere to the Liu Xiu Maritime Authority Transit Code while within the boundaries of the Liu Xiu star system. See following section for further details.
IV. All nations within Liu Xiu will cease any outside hostilities with one another, should they exist. Violation of cessation of hostilities will be met with severe restriction of privileges within Liu Xiu space. Repeated violations will see any Enclave or Outpost of the offending nations immediately closed and their owners ejected from Liu Xiu space.
V. No nation shall attempt to invade or otherwise conquer Liu Xiu. Such an act will be seen as an act of war against the Imperial Star Republic.

LIU XIU MARITIME AUTHORITY TRANSIT CODE

I.All vessels, regardless of port of origin, must acknowledge that the Liu Xiu System Administrative Council and by extension the Imperial Star Republic, is not liable for loss of life or destruction or loss of property in the event that vessels travel beyond the designated trade lanes and adjacent spurs. The Liu Xiu Security Fleet nor the Imperial Star Republic has no obligation to provide assistance to any vessel that may be stranded, assaulted or otherwise damaged vessels operating beyond these designated areas.
II.All vessels, regardless of port of origin, are required to initiate faster than light travel only at designated locations with the Liu Xiu star system, and must further terminate faster than light travel at similarly designated locations with the star system. These locations are to be, unless otherwise stipulated by the Liu Xiu Maritime Authority or the Imperial Star Republic, shall be located no further than thirty-five Astronomical Units beyond the star of Liu Xiu. Furthermore, no vessel shall initiate superluminal travel within a radius of one Astronomical Unit from any stellar, planetary, or satellite body, to the exclusion of artificial satellites, outposts or enclaves beyond one Astronomical Unit in radial orbit.
III.All vessels, regardless of port of origin, must provide up-to-date registration which must include port of call, nation of origin, system of last port-of-deposit, flag identification, vessel registration numbers, complete crew manifest and complete cargo manifest. Each vessel registration data packet shall be transmitted to passive Liu Xiu Maritime Authority checkpoints receivers, and transmitted upon request to Imperial Star Republic trade lane and customs checkpoint receivers before transiting to port of deposit.
IV.All vessels, regardless of port of origin or port of deposit, must transit through no less than two Imperial Star Republic trade lane and customs checkpoints to provide valid vessel registration data packets and to identify licensed helm and pilotage registration. Any vessel which fails to do such and attempts any docking or landing maneuvers within a three Astronomical Unit radius of any celestial, planetary, artificial or natural satellite bodies will be considered hostile by the Liu Xiu Maritime Authority and the Imperial Star Republic and may be fired upon by local enclave security in addition to Liu Xiu Security Fleet detachment vessels.
V.All vessels, regardless of port of origin or port of deposit, suspected to be in violation of the Liu Xiu Maritime Authority Transit Code may be stopped or otherwise detained for inspection by Liu Xiu Security vessels or personnel. Vessels may be detained for up to twenty-four standard hours without justification or habeas corpus. Vessels found to be harboring illegal contraband in violation of the Liu Xiu Maritime Transit Code shall consider their cargo and haul forfeit, with personnel of said vessles subject to further detention in the event of suspicions of conspiracy to commit piracy, terrorism or brigandage. Outside of felony acts, personnel found in violation of the Liu Xiu Maritime Authority Transit Code shall be expelled from the Liu Xiu system for a indefinite period of time.




The Liu Xiu News Network


The Liu Xiu News Network is the Liu Xiu star system's internal news service. With its headquarters within Stormcrest on Jiwao and affiliate stations located across the star system and within hosted Enclaves and Outposts, the LXNN seeks to bring all the news that is fit for you from the deepest reaches of space to your fingertips.



IMPORTANT OUT OF CHARACTER INFORMATION


Meet the New Boss, same as the Old Boss. Mostly.


Hello, all, and welcome to the revamped Liu Xiu Project!

Liu Xiu is a OPEN SETTING which means that, outside of the fluff rules and the OOC rules noted in this thread (and the rules of the Nationstates website and these forums), means that the system is open to any Future Tech players who may be interested, and can be used freely as a setting for RP to take place in without needing clearance to do so (though as a matter of courtesy, you should always check with the owner of any Enclave or Outpost if you intend on RPing in a location that does not fall under your immediate OOC control). Also big stuff like invasions and military conflicts DO need to be cleared by me first, obviously.

What does Open setting mean? It means that content concerning Liu Xiu is by and large up to the participating players to create. This could mean a entire thread dedicated to, say, corporate espionage that takes place strictly within the Liu Xiu star system's border, OR it could mean that Liu Xiu is the launching point for a thread that takes place light years of even a full quadrant away. Liu Xiu is not meant to be a central hub in which all RP things revolve solely around it. To use a Fallout 3 analogy, you may have storylines in the town of Megaton, but the entire game of Fallout 3 does not revolve around it. It is just another set piece in a expansive, living world. Or in this case, universe. Liu Xiu can and most likely will be affected by the events that take place in the greater NationStates Future Tech community, just as much as actions within Liu Xiu may effect the NS FT community at large.

Though for individual stories that involve Liu Xiu (as in there is no planned thread but simply a short story), I highly suggest you use the The Compendium, as it is specifically designed to house the short stories of the Future Tech community.

Dreadful Sagittarius was generous enough to hand control of the system to me, and I hope to do the old thread proud by putting this one to good (and more active) use. To any new applicants, welcome! And to the old guard staying onboard, thanks for sticking with the project! First and fore-most, I'm honestly not going to run this any different than the previous thread, though hopefully we'll see some more activity involving the Liu Xiu system this time around. If you're a returning Enclave or Outpost owner, or simply someone who is familiar with the previous thread, you may have noticed that there have been some slight changes to Liu Xiu, primarily concerning planet names and the addition of some new planetary bodies. You may also notice that there is a lengthy section on the 'Liu Xiu Maritime Authority Transit Code' and expanded system 'laws'. These changes have been done to give players more options for Enclave/Outpost/RP spots and to give the system a bit more IC fluff.

Please do NOT panic at the inclusion of laws where there previously were none, they are largely there just for IC window dressing, and to give people, if they wish to do so, another route to flavor their RP with. I will by no means be enforcing anything other than the previous Out Of Character rules;

One other thing that you might see change is that I will In Character be using Liu Xiu as my nation's main port of call in Gamma. That means you may see Vocian warships passing through or nearby the system, but they will NOT take part in the everyday policing of the system. Again, this is little more than a fluff thing. Liu Xiu will have its own police force that takes care of conflicts within the system. You may see this police force equipped with Vocian gear, but their priority is that of upholding the system's laws, not enforcing Vocian ideals or agendas. If anyone has any questions or simply want to discuss the Liu Xiu project with myself or other players, please visit the NSFT Discrod!

Thank you, and welcome to Liu Xiu!

ENCLAVES AND OUTPOSTS OF THE LIU XIU SPECIAL ECONOMIC ZONE


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


What are Enclaves?
Enclaves are smaller representations of their host nation's influence. Enclaves will be considered sovereign territory of the nation that applies for and then purchases said territory within the star system of Liu Xiu. Any foreign state that applies for and is granted an Enclave will be able to operate within the laws of their own government and culture; it would not be wrong to consider each enclave as a micro-representation of the nation that owns and operates it. Nations may only apply for one Enclave within Liu Xiu.

What are Outposts?
Outposts operate much in the same way as Enclaves, but, as the name suggests, on a far smaller scale. Outposts are mining facilities, orbital docks, smaller settlements or private residences. Outposts will still operate under the sovereign laws of their nation. Applying nations can have a single Outpost within the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone.

Have Enclave or Outpost operations changed under the new ownership?
Though Liu Xiu is now property of the Imperial Star Republic of Vocenae, it will continue to host the enclaves and outposts of foreign nations in a similar fashion. For more information, please see the FAQ section and the Laws & Regulations section of the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone.

Do I have to choose between an Enclave or Outpost? How many of each is my nation allowed to have?
Applying nations may have both a single Enclave AND a single Outpost within the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone.

Do I have to pick one of the listed locations to place my Enclave or Outpost?
Applying for an Enclave or Outpost is not entirely restricted to the listed solar and planetary locations of the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone, however the Liu Xiu Administrative Council and Maritime Authority strongly caution against all nations wishing to establish Enclaves or Outposts beyond the listed locations for the safety and security of the equipment and personnel of the applicant nation's Enclave or Outpost. The Liu Xiu Maritime Authority is under no obligation to assist in the repair, rescue or otherwise intervene outside of the listed trade lanes and beyond local planetary patrol zones beyond three million kilometers.

How large can my Enclave or Outpost be? Including any that might be in space?
Terrestrial Enclaves and Outposts are expected to fall within the ten kilometer range, although this size limit can be, in general, flexible. For space-based Enclaves and Outposts, a hard size limit of 20km overall size for Enclaves and between five to ten kilometers for Outposts. The Liu Xiu Administrative Council would like to remind all applicants that your claims are for political and economic hubs, not full blown colonization.

Can I militarize my Enclave or Outposts?
Outside of light defensive weaponry, NO. The Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone is not meant to be a warzone where member nations are constantly in danger of being attacked. Enclaves will be allowed two small and lightly armed defensive vessels that MUST remain docked with your Enclave or Outpost at all times unless otherwise cleared by the Liu Xiu Administrative Council and Maritime Authority. Included vessels must be listed in the description field for your Enclave/Outpost application.

How powerful can my included defensive ships be?
Any defensive vessels must fall within the range of a lightly armed and armored corvette or gunship.

Can I have military warships of from my nation visiting my Enclave/Outpost?
Absolutely not. The only way a military vessel may enter the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone is through requesting and receiving special clearance from the Administration.

I have an Enclave and an Outpost, can I have two ships at all of my locations?
No. Nations applying for more than one one location must choose which location their light defensive vessels will be located at. Failure to adhere to this will result in a single administrative request to change the application. Failure to do so will result in denial of your application(s).

How Do I apply for an Enclave or Outpost in the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone?
To apply, please completely fill out the following form and await approval from the Liu Xiu Administrative Council. Please note that nations applying for multiple Outposts must fill out multiple application forms. All applications will be under review for a twenty-four hour period before they are either accepted or denied.

If I receive no response to my application, am I accepted into Liu Xiu?
No. If you do not receive a response within 24 to 48 hours of posting your application, it means your application for an Enclave or Outpost as been denied and is not included in the Liu Xiu project.

My Enclave/Outpost was removed because I was inactive. Can I have my Enclave/Outpost re-added to the directory?
No. The only way to have your Enclave/Outpost re-added to the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone Directory is by going through the application process again by re-applying.

IMPORTANT OUT OF CHARACTER INFORMATION


The first thing of note is that I will accept or deny applications from a In-Character standpoint; that means that you might get a response to your application beyond a simple 'Application accepted, Welcome to the project' if I feel that your application would warrant an additional or extended response from the Liu Xiu Administrative Council (aka the system's government). I feel that by doing this, it adds a bit more life to the system and possible RP moments, but please do not worry if the response seems a bit snippy, so long as it says accept and NOT Deny in my response to your application then I found it to be perfectly acceptable Out of Character wise.

All Enclaves and Outposts are listed under their location within the Liu Xiu star system. To find your Enclave or Outpost on the list, please click the spoiler tag under the location you applied for. For example; players who have applied for an Enclave and Outpost on Jiwao will need to click the 'Jiwao' spoiler in both the Enclave and Outpost sections of this post. All Enclave and Outpost listings link directly to your original application, meaning that member players are able to edit and update their descriptions as needed, when needed, so long as said changes fall do not violate the rules of this, the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone thread, the Nationstates forum rules, and the rules of Nationstates itself.

To all still-extant nations who were once included on this list but no longer are, please do not feel alarmed or otherwise angered, you are free to re-apply with the exact same application as before. This decision was merely to streamline the the re-launching of the Liu Xiu Project, and again, you are more than welcome to re-apply at any time.

To all new applicants, please be sure to adhere to the IC and OOC section of this thread's original post and the rules of NationStates and those of these forums when writing your applications for an Enclave or Outpost. Your 'factbooks' must adhere to those guidelines if you wish to be accepted. So no giant battlestations or planet girdling cities, please. As a personal request, please try to keep the descriptions of your Enclaves and Outposts at no more than three paragraphs. There is no hard limit to your descriptions, but there is a limit to how much space is available in each post and exceedingly long Enclave/Outpost descriptions eat up space like no other. As such, Enclaves/Outposts that have been 'grandfathered' in will now find a link to their original Liu Xiu thread applications.

As the owner and operator of this thread, I am under no obligation to accept your application and reserve the right to reject your application or remove you from this list at any time.

Thank you,
-Voc

Enclave Or Outpost?; Enclave
Nation Name; Imperial & Federal Union of States
Name of Enclave/Outpost; Port Saint Maurice
Location of your Claim; Orbit of Kappa.
Description of your Claim; Port Saint Maurice is an outpost of the Ostend Company, a joint venture by the Imperial family of the R.u.B Union and several prominent merchant corporations, intended to expand Imperial economic influence in other areas of the galaxy beyond the Imperial frontier. Port Saint Maurice is a trading station first and foremost, with diplomacy as a secondary function. As part of its trading function, Saint Maurice features rudimentary industrial capacity, focused on drawing resources from Kappa in order to synthesise fuel for trade ships. The Imperial Ministry of Foreign Affairs maintains a consulate on the station, and a small bazaar of shops, markets, and other establishments have opened up as the station has developed into a valuable port of call for many merchant vessels. Of course, the majority of Port Saint Maurice's structure are its docking arms and vast warehouse spaces needed to support the trade that is its life blood.

Enclave Or Outpost?; Enclave, spaceborne.

Nation Name; The Commonwealth.

Name of Enclave/Outpost; Evergreen.

Location of Enclave/Outpost; On the fringe of Taen's planetary system.

Description of your Claim; Commonwealth Central University Deep Space Research Station Evergreen represents the continuation of the proud scientific tradition the Commonwealth has had since its founding. It is named after a Revolutionary-era deep space station whose population were relocated to form the sovereign state now known as the Suskind Institute.

Evergreen has a permanent staff of about twenty, but can accommodate a maximum of about one hundred. Officially, it serves as a base for a wide variety of practical research which is too difficult, too resource-intensive or otherwise impractical to conduct in a planetary environment, including research into exotic matter power systems and Einstein-Rosen drive theory. Unofficially, it serves as a rather unsubtle observation post for various Commonwealth government interests; it uses a newtonium nano-anchor to maintain a high-bandwidth communication line back to the Commonwealth, although in order to avoid diplomatic trouble, its active sensor array is comparatively limited, making it more of an avenue for voyeurism by curiosity seekers in the Commonwealth intelligence community.

Commonwealth law requires all Commonwealth citizens coming to Liu Xiu to check in at Evergreen. In practice, this constitutes a short radio exchange with the station's PI as the incoming ship blithely zooms past, if it happens at all. Most of the time it doesn't, and nobody really cares to enforce it. Evergreen does, however, maintain the most complete and accurate database in the Commonwealth on the subject of Liu Xiu, so it tends to attract a lot of pings from Commonwealth visitors who are trying not to put a foot wrong.

Evergreen is served by a single Commonwealth Navy corvette. The ship is assigned to the Home Fleet, and is therefore officially known as Enterprise-283, after the de jure mothership of all otherwise unassigned smallcraft in that fleet. Informally, the staff know it as "the Box". Theoretically the ship can be run by a single pilot with PI assistance, and it has a capacity of about 50; it is roughly the size of a London double-decker bus. It is assigned to Evergreen as an escape craft in the event that a cataclysm should befall Liu Xiu; practically, the scientists use it for data collection and busing themselves around. It has a single laser cannon, which would probably quite effectively destroy other smallcraft but would not be effective against anything bigger. Unlike most Commonwealth corvettes, it has an FTL drive - a newtonium minicore, powered not by the usual reactor but by a hypercomplex, which gives it roughly enough juice to get back to Yelan, one-way. In normal use, the hypercomplex approaches depletion roughly once every three months, and requires approximately 72 hours to recharge.

Enclave or Outpost: Enclave
Nation Name: Serukta Sehkrisaal (Sacral Empire of the Second Children of the Light)
Name of Enclave/Outpost: Mahrku ka Arahbaltu (Or, simply: Arahbaltu)
Location of Enclave/Outpost: Taen (Surface Enclave)
Description of Claim:
The Mahrku ka Arahbaltu (or "Mahrku of Arahbaltu") is a large and expansive arcology system situated deep within the northern equatorial region of the planet Taen, situated as the third planet from Liu Xiu Prime; specifically, the Mahrku of Arahbaltu constitutes a circular plot of land 3.5 kilometers in radius (and the associated aerial and subterranean volumes), which an enclave of considerable size (6.68 kilometers in length and approximately 4 kilometers in width), known simply as "Arahbaltu" or "Arahbaltu Palace", dominates. Currently, the Mahrku of Arahbaltu is under the strict and shrewd governance of Mahrku'ul Awiluhaar Sai'belbiik, a Saiba'al hailing from the Kasa'ad n'akan Qa'salnaar; currently, the House Inferior Belbiik holds mediatized allegiance to the House Superior Nahaasiin.

The dominating feature of the terrestrial enclave of Arahbaltu consists of the Saakret Arahbaltu (Palace of Arahbaltu); its associated servant and slaves' quarters; four agricultural growth systems and associated irrigation and maintenance channels; a two-terminal starport and its associated administrative and maintenance faculties; and, lastly, an attached concourse and multi-level bazaar. In addition, the Mahrku further contains three subterranean chambers dedicated solely to fusion power production and power generation through waste aggregation and de-polymerization; numerous subterranean annexes dedicated to maintenance, clandestine transport of slaves, servants, attendants, and adjuncts; and numerous further maintenance systems including: waste management, water management and distribution, communications, and various leisure and recreation systems connected to various portions of both the Saakret proper and the associated starport. Lastly, as required due to the environmental toxicity and hazardous atmosphere of Taen, the Mahkru further has a dedicated fusion power production facility and associated capacitor systems powering a complex lattice for physilight projection and shielding, keeping the harsh and deadly atmosphere of Taen outside of the three primary arcology systems (the Saakret, Arahbaltu Starport, and the attached agricultural sciences facility).

As mentioned, the Mahrku consists of three primary arcology systems (or "sub-systems"): the Saakret Arahbaltu, Arahbaltu Na'vasarai (starport and bazaar), and the Arahbaltu agricultural research facility. While the Saakret functions primarily as a the lavish official residence of Kerr Mahrku'ul Awiluhaar and acts in service to his associated diplomatic responsibilities, the adjacent starport and bazaar - known as a "na'vasarai" - are far more publicly known and accessible, functioning as a way-station for traders willing to deal in auspicious or otherwise "questionable" merchandise; specifically, due to the known Sinah - or "Sinah System" - of castes and classes in the society of the Sacral Empire, the Arahbaltu Na'vasarai serves as one of few ports of call within the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone not only willing, but eagerly desiring new slave and chattel stock, leading to a high degree of traffic to the otherwise hazardous (if but beautiful) surface of Taen. In addition, the na'vasarai also functions as a large source for spices, goods, and wares originating from the Sacral Empire - including both aulho leaf and diluted Serijn narcotic consumables.

Secondly, the Mahrku hosts four agricultural growth centers and associated research and production facilities, functioning to provide much of the livestock and vegetative foodstuffs to the Saakret and the Arahbaltu Na'vasarai, but also producing many alien cultivars in the highly-controlled and maintained farms which fill the physilight lattice north of the Saakret. Specifically, the agricultural spokes serve to provide the Mahrku - and, by extension, the Sacral Empire - access to certain horticultural and agricultural species of both flora and fauna from around the Galaxy and an ample and exceptionally fertile location for further research into their associated properties and experimentation in regards to arid agricultural management opportunities.

While the Mahrku and its dominating features were originally licensed for construction on Taen before the transfer of control of the system to the Imperial Star Republic, during the transition period, construction was halted on several portions of the agricultural center due to questions over the future legality of the use of slave stock and forced servitude under the Liu Xiu Maritime Authority. While construction eventually began anew, several additions to the facility were scrapped due to regulation complications, and while labor eventually began once again, labor was refocused toward irrigation and maintenance systems for the four primary agricultural spokes, in addition to further expansion of livestock and husbandry programs.

Enclave Or Outpost: Enclave
Nation Name: The Star Empire of Huerdae
Name of Enclave/Outpost: Dreadwolf's Den (The Stain)
Location of Enclave/Outpost: Fenghuang
Description of your Claim: Situated, as most Huerdaen structures are, beneath the surface of the inhospitable moon of Fenghuang, the Dreadwolf's Den is one of very few Huerdaen enclaves or embassy-like structures ever to be constructed. Due in part to its appearance, but more to the reason that it has no obvious purpose in the system, Dreadwolf's Den is more often referred to as 'The Stain on Fenghuang', or simply 'The Stain'. Like all Huerdaen bases, above the surface it is a mass of black-metal boxes with no particular shape or reason to them when visible from the outside. It is large enough to be seen from orbit, despite it's lack of obvious purpose. This has led to any number of theories regarding its value to the Huerdaen.

At one point during initial construction, it became known that large amounts of surveillance and communication equipment were being brought in and installed within The Stain. This has only increased the rumors regarding the purpose of The Stain, and it spent some time as an object of conversation throughout the system. This, however, has faded as excavations within the facility continue and new equipment arrivals have slowed, making many push off the purpose as little more than a state-sanctioned mining operation.

Enclave Or Outpost: Outpost
Nation Name: The Star Empire of Huerdae
Name of Enclave/Outpost: Ze'Rhiss
Location of Enclave/Outpost: The Gemini Belt
Description of your Claim: Located among the tumbling rocks of, the outpost known as Ze'Rhiss consumes one of the larger asteroids near where the two planes intersect. While the name is technically that of the starport on the surface, Ze'Rhiss is used often to simply reference the asteroid itself. Criss-crossed with Huerdaen Rail lines that lead to the several smaller mining posts across the rock, Ze'Rhiss serves as the shipping center for bases on its own asteroid and the several smaller companies that mine the smaller rocks nearby. While run by the Huerdaen company Kai'Kitalli Incorporated, it is a home to many species and nationalities, almost as widely populated as Cripple. The Huerdaen influence, however, is clear for all. The outpost itself is sunk into the surface of the asteroid, with a single, deadly "Big Twenty-Five" anti-orbital weapon emplaced near the entrance. Thus defended, the place is arguably one of the safer locations among the Twins, despite its inability to cater to warships. The facility is sunk into the surface, with entirely internal docking, though most traffic through the facility is completely industrial.

There is a second aspect of Ze'Rhiss, however, that has created its own small corner of the market. As the facility is run by KKI, many Huerdaen products are more easily available, and their motivation to enforce laws against weapons and materiel coming into the system is somewhat lacking. Security is maintained by KKI corporate militia and a large number of hired mercenaries, making it secure, but generally out of the reach of more stringent laws. Because of this, it has found itself a place of business for arms dealers and smugglers, for those who can maintain the neutrality and peace of the station. With external threats still suffering behind the presence of the massive anti-orbital weapon, Ze'Rhiss survives by straddling law and order, maintaining peace by force.

Enclave Or Outpost: Enclave
Nation Name: Uthanutnē (Uthani Imperium)
Name of Enclave/Outpost: Sahnai
Location of Enclave/Outpost: Surface of Pinnacle
Description of your Claim:

Sahnai, or "The Watchtower" as it is commonly known to non-Uthani, is the second major attempt by the Wali Hatusmi of the Imperium to establish a safe-zone to conduct trade and diplomacy with nations and species not relatively close to the Imperium's borders. Following suit to their cautious nature in diplomatic affairs, Sahnai was established on Pinnacle originally to provide a testing ground for possible aquatic settlements and aquaculture experimentation. However the project was abandoned early in its life in favor of orbital programs, leaving those settlers who chose to remain behind confined to the ground-based structures established within the coastal spires.

Sahnai was nearly forgotten until several years ago when the Wali Hatusmi was finally granted permission to begin building diplomatic stations and enclaves in friendly or neutral territory. The Wali Hatusmi of the Imperium was quick to take note of the expanding opportunities in the Liu Xiu system, and, after making contact with the original settlers of The Watchtower. Received permission to renovate the spire complex for diplomatic and trade purposes, bringing in settlers and staff from the Imperium to compliment the number of Uthani still living within the complex. At current it is estimated that some four hundred Uthani inhabit the complex, with professions varying from aquaculture-farmer to diplomatic envoy.

The complex itself, despite its name, is not impressive. Three coastal spires make up the superstructure and main living quarters of the complex, all of which are connected via a large steel triangular platform at their peaks with various artificial buildings that accommodate shipping and trade. Despite the original program's failure to foster aquatic settlement, the aquaculture experiments proved fruitful and in saying such the water around the spires serve as vast fields where small water-borne craft are often seen darting about collecting or planting the harvest, all of which are contained via a metallic chain that extends along the perimeter of the "fields."

The highest levels of the spires themselves serve as minor manufacturing and shipping centers, where the vast majority of imports are processed and all of the exports are produced. Located below this level are the diplomatic housing and conference centers, where the official representatives of the Wali Hatusmi live and conduct business with foreign emissaries and diplomats. Below this level at the base of the spire lives the domestic staff of The Watchtower. Here the farmers and service staff of the complex live and buy their necessities, this area is also home to "characters of ill-repute" which represent a broader criminal organization. The first subterranean level is dedicated to officers of the Wali Hatusmi's enforcement wing, containing both the armory and barracks for the small contingent of enforces. Below this at the facilities lowest point, a temple to Ilumar and living facilities for its staff services the entirety of The Watchtower.

With the change in ownership in regards to Liu Xiu, recent reports have indicated that long range surveillance equipment may have been moved into the spire, though none of these reports have been confirmed. Conspiracy theorists indicate that this equipment may have been placed in a secret third level of the subterranean complex, but any efforts to find it have either been unsuccessful or repressed brutally by Wali Hatusmi enforcers.

Enclave Or Outpost: Enclave
Nation Name: Genomita
Name of Enclave/Outpost: Oovahn (Harmony of purpose)
Location of Enclave/Outpost: Gemini belt
Description of your Claim:

As the Star Community doesn't use the monetary system, trade with other nations has and will always depend on the goodwill of their neighbouring nations. Additionaly, the Star Community is somewhat hesitant to establish settlements on planets or other habitats already claimed by other nations, not out of distrust of other people or even xenophobia, but simply to avoid territorial disputes and because few other nations share the genomitans' stance on the environment and their preference of self augmentation over terraforming. It was for these reasons that the Star Community of Genomita chose to establish Oovahn in the Gemini belt. Here genomitans, both the transhumans that are usually associated with the term and members of other species who have become citizens of the community work to ensure harmony with the other habitats of Liu Xiu. They primarily do so by mining the asteroids for minerals other nations consider valuable but which are of little use to the organic technology of the genomitans and trading them for food and other things they need, as well as providing an opportunity to acquaint oneself with the genomitan way of life.

Oovahn itself is a comparatively large beehive habitat, it's tunnels dug in a purposeful manner to maximze available space without compromizing the asteroid's integrity. While one might imagine the insides of such a habitat to be largely bare, Oovahn is actually quite habitable. Most of the interior is covered in plant matter similar to the insides of genomitan bioships, vines and organically-grown signs of different colors facilitating orientation in the tunnel network. Some of the other asteroids surrounding Oovahn have been converted into terraria, their insides largely hollowed out and terraformed and equipped with thrusters as well as a brain like the one genomitan bioships have and sensory organs to perceive their surroundings, allowing them to (very carefully) maneuver through the gemini belt and functioning either as mobile mining bases, shuttles or places of relaxation.

As the security fleet does not respond to distress calls from the belt the genomitans of Oovahn have taken it upon themselves to look after those who get stranded there. Groups of genomitan spacers equipped with long term life support augmentations which allow allow them to gain oxygen, water and even nourishment from the carbon gravel and ice surrounding them (though it doesn't make it taste any better) regularily search the areas outside the security fleet's patrol routes for castaways, living or dead.

Oovahn's staff also contains a number of envoys who handle diplomacy with the other nations within liu xiu as well as a member of the high council, who spends most of hir time here. As the Star Community has yet to receive permission from the ones in charge of liu xiu to establish a farcaster gate near liu xiu prime, travel to and from other genomitan habitats is slow.

The Liu Xiu Maritime Authority however does wish to issue an additional statement that Genomitan search and rescue craft are not to be armed in any such way that violates the Maritime Authority Transit Code, and that any such vessels are not exempt from security checks as stated in the Transit Code.

The Liu Xiu Administrative Council and the Maritime Authority hereby states states that establishment of an Enclave so far from the heavily inhabited sectors of the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone does not grant or entitle the Genomitan Star Community to special privileges, be they social, economic, or political. Any industrial operation that takes place beyond the immediate locality of the Enclave itself must be approved as Outposts before any such operations can begin.

The Liu Xiu Administrative Council and the Maritime Authority additionally states that it is not liable for and any loss of personnel and equipment that occur within the Star Community's Enclave and their operations.

Welcome to Liu Xiu!

Enclave Or Outpost:
Enclave

Nation Name:
The Russian Empire

Name of Enclave/Outpost:
Almaz Station

Location of Enclave/Outpost:
Port Expedition

Description of your Claim:
Almaz began life as the Imperious, a British military fortification orbiting Mars, gradually being modernized but retaining the classic polyhedral 'star fortress' lines of 29th century fortifications. During the reign of Victor I the station was gutted in the course of one of the numerous Russo-British conflicts of his era. The station was rebuilt by an enterprising Dutch property dealer who established it as a fine hotel. In the following two hundred years, however the station was forgotten, having been replaced in its role as luxury resort to the rich by purpose built establishments of much more refined taste. Despite this, the structure remains more or less intact and was, recently, appropriated for the purpose of establishing an enclave in the Liu Xiu system. The hotel has been modernized while retaining the distinctive flair of the 29th century with its art deco flair and excitingly baroque moulding.

The Almaz has been fitted out with modern facilities for docking a variety of ships, as well as providing the utmost in luxury accommodation, with a full range of environmental suites to suit all physiologies*, as well as suitable entertainment facilities for most terrestrial beings. This includes a casino, interior boating and yacht lake, horse and motor racing tracks, a variety of art galleries and many other activities suitable for ladies, gentlemen and other non-binary gendered beings. A number of Terran firms have signed on to establish store fronts in the Almaz in hopes of reaching a wider market, selling goods ranging from luxury clothing to planetary prospecting services. At the Emperor's personal request, a fund has been established to provide free alcohol to all guests, and as such a wide variety of drinks is available on the house to all comers.

Naturally the Russian government maintains a presence on the station for diplomatic purposes, having established the Suite Impériale to host the emperor's appointed ambassador as well as any such guests the Russian government wishes to have a particularly good time. Station security and local transport will be handled by the imperial yacht Vakkh and the destroyer Bars in coordination with a small force of His Majesty's gendarmes.


(*This claim is made with the disclaimer that species such as the Ng'8*kt of the western central spiral arm should not stay aboard the station due to their demonstrated species wide allergy to art deco. A small section of the station has since been redecorated in 27th century neo-brutalist revival, which all species find equally offensive but none appear to suffer actual health effects from.)

Enclave Or Outpost: Outpost
Nation Name: The Republic of Sunset
Name of Enclave/Outpost: Chuh-Yu Sān
Location of Enclave/Outpost: Port Expedition
Description of your Claim: The Chuh-Yu Sān is a Lagrange-Class Advanced Outpost. The Lagrange-Class, a built-out version of the Trojan-Class, is a small independent station that acts as a resupply base for starships on long duration missions as well as a minor maintenance and repair facility. It also has some rest and relaxation functions, though these are mostly oriented towards facilitating the interactions between various visiting crews rather than hosting any kind of specific event. They are armored, but not particularly armed, and while mobile they move at a snail's pace compared to all but the most lumbering of vessels.

In the case of the Chuh-Yu Sān, she has been additionally refitted to act as something of a cultural and diplomatic waypoint for both the Republic and the larger Triumvirate. Fitted with an extensive long-range communications system, she will provide direct virtual access to diplomatic and trade staff throughout allied space as well as regular civilian communications to destinations inside the Republic. Additionally, she will house a number of sub-enclaves where visiting cultural representatives, such as chefs, tailors, artists, and similar will ply their trade as an ambassador of their native culture for a time before moving on.

There has been a slight revision to the planetary bodies located within Liu Xiu. This decision was made to supply additional aesthetics to the system and to give people more selection options for establishing Outpost or Enclaves. As such, the ice giant Lambda has been added to the Major Locales Of The Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone section as well as its local administrative capital of Echo Station which has been added to the section Administrative Centers Of The Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone of the OP.

Thank you.

Enclave Or Outpost: Enclave

Nation Name: Refugee Coalition of the Poinsettia Confederacy

Name of Enclave/Outpost: Eumenidum

Location of Enclave/Outpost: Pinnacle

Description of your Claim: Eumenidum, so named for the Poinsettia Capital Ship Eumenidum that brought refugees to the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone to begin with, is an enclave settlement for a group of survivors of the doomed Poinsettia Confederacy in Delta Quadrant. Having exhausted their ship's energy reserves and much of its materiel resources, the remaining refugees left from its final port of call at Vulneraverunt on Arx in the Calixtas Star System of Gamma Quadrant and scuttled their ship at Pinnacle. Much of the former fleet carrier's hull and interior compartments were cannibalized from the ship to construct a moderate-sized settlement on an archipelago in the southern hemisphere of Pinnacle, creating a cache of extra materials for expansion across the base of a dormant volcano. The remnants of the ship's skeleton is preparing to be sunk and anchored to the ocean floor off the coast of their archipelago, with the hope of creating an artificial reef in the shallow shelf. If successful, an attempt to seed the immediate ocean vicinity with new sea life to eventually harvest will be undertaken. Other ships purchased from extant powers have been stripped of their valuable components for materiel purposes; others have been used to create underwater domiciles for added living space. New derelicts being brought are being purposed for even larger underwater sub-settlements.

The archipelago, though a far cry from the doomed home world, is rich in volcanic soil from past eruptions, making what land is available extremely valuable for agriculture. Eumenidum is the last known location in the galaxy to successfully harvest seedlings from the original Poinsettia home world, and has developed into a boom town for the Poinsettia diaspora in the quadrant. Structural engineers developed 'tier-farming', cutting swaths into the mountainous islands to create lots for growing exotic crops not found elsewhere. Tourism has become a thriving secondary industry thanks in part to a combination of the wealth generated from the local economy spurring need for recreation, as well as a growing leisure industry luring Poinsettia diaspora to Pinnacle for its renowned cuisine.

Because the Eumenidum fleet carrier was scuttled, the settlers of Eumenidum have no permanent warships that service the enclave, though several verticopters have since been imported for local travel across the archipelago and for rescue purposes in-atmosphere. Eumenidum is instead visited frequently by the SRN Fortissimus, a corvette of the Primareliqua's Sidusclasse which has been dually chartered by the Eumenidum government and the Poinsettia refugee colony on Arx to serve as a transport ship to and from Liu Xiu. The Fortissimus brings fresh building supplies, travelers and immigrants to Eumenidum and returns to Arx with exotic foodstuffs. The newest superstructure at the archipelago, Spurius Cassius, was construction to provide a waypoint for people arriving at and departing from Eumenidum.

Enclave Or Outpost: Outpost
Nation Name: Incorporated State of ZMI
Name of Enclave/Outpost: Monolith Facility. Monolith Fargo class variable Tran-shipment point
Location of Enclave/Outpost: Kappa polar geosynchronous orbit.

Monolith was created and is officially operated and funded jointly by Megafreight Interstellar Merchants and the Incorporated States col-dep to support the Gastins world / Azure fourth colonial expansion arc trade route. Deployed by the mobile col-dep heavy manufactury ship Long Mountain and the solar class megafreighters MIM Chump change and MIM Credits for rent four years ago the Monolith facility is outwardly a bare bones freight transshipment point used monthly for a few days to support megafrieghter offloading of containerized consumer and industrial goods from core sol sector worlds to either other local sector or system freighters while the huge vessels recharge for transgalactic rip drive, the vast majority of there cargo bound elsewhere.

The Monolith is in its majority an unmanned micro gravity environment industrial freight facility. Monolith is made up mostly of two "dumb heavy metal" 149 megaton arrays of variable geometry ship to ship freight rails and a small central systems core. In theory the facility can handle two megafreighter or super capital class vessels at any one time in its open to space piers(though having never had both "piers" in operation to date). The facility is by and large open to vacuum and without a freighter present mostly inactive save for slowly filling its tanks and the endless servicing of a "population" of 35 simple rail forging and repair drones operated from a single small craft hanger in the hub. A sealed emergency 12 man hab can facility at the meeting point of the two rails is also present. Buried beneath the hanger and hab can stack a pulsed ansible and its automated sentinel watch systems have been installed and while this device cannot offer continuous real time interstellar broadband communications for a fee it can be powered up to send a burst message.

The "ansible" also contains a long patrol system overwatch dumb AI that truly "operates" monolith, can over ride its drones for security purposes and uses the vast mass of the station as a passive monitoring and signals intelligence array, the movements of the array to realign itself issued as "increased em harvesting efficiency" requirements. Given Monoliths pitifull power to mass ratio when a mega freighter is not on dock such realignments can take days with tens of thousands of tiny baseball sized freight rail ion thrusters firing in concert.

(LONG PATROL FIELD NOTE Monolith like all Fargo class facilities could with the correct components and a sufficient power source be reconfigured to a class IX strategic planetary defense energy weapon harvesting Kappas entire polar magnetic output for use as a high level charged particle weapon, class G strategic long patrol fall back point during a case omega through omega plus events).

Monolith is primarily powered by passive, electromagnetic energy harvesters and EM cloud scoops feeding low rate entropic decay reactors that provide the majority of its needed repair and operations mass while slow charging the ansible hubs transmission capacitors. While some on facility whipple and EM shielded warehouseing space and simple container exposure wraps are available by and large the facility is entirely empty while transhipment is not in progress.

After consideration and review, the Liu Xiu Administrative Council has chosen to approve the Outpost application of The Incorporated State of ZMI.

Welcome to the Liu Xiu Special Economic Zone.

After consideration and review, the Liu Xiu Administrative Council has chosen to accept the Coalition of the Poinsettia Confederacy ONLY on the grounds that any and all plans of introduction of new aquatic species to Pinnacle's oceans are removed. The Administrative Council has concurred with Pinnacles administrative board that there would be devastating consequences across the planet should new species be introduced to Pinnacle's fragile biosphere. The Administrative Council has also come to the decision that any future additions to this 'reef' system via scuttled starship hulls must be approved by both the Liu Xiu Administrative Council, the Pinnacle administrative board, and the Liu Xiu Maritime Authority and must meet sterilization standards before being de-orbiting and installation is allowed.

No worries. Would it be best to kill the reef/fisheries idea and just go for the underwater domiciles and settings because of the finite amount of land on the archipelagos? The reef idea / fisheries isn't an absolute necessity to the story (and its largely meaningless without having fish to fish out of them), but having underwater structures would be very helpful for some of the planned RP ideas.

Enclave Or Outpost: Outpost
Nation Name: e'Sovaar'aen a'Kaemaan'arit Aoraqet'yari (Sovereign Hegemony of Auracexia)
Name of Enclave/Outpost: Aora a'Rhas'akar'a (Radiant Dawn)
Location of Enclave/Outpost: Lambda
Description of your Claim: Aora a'Rhas'akar'a (Radiant Dawn), established as a space station and outpost in the Liu Xiu system above Lambda owned by House Ravyn'na-A'stra'eva (Dévnostraéva) Interstellar Holdings. The space station is divided into residential and commercial zones allowing for a sizable population to inhabit the station if they so choose or for a large number of corporations to inhabit spaces on said station as a means of furthering the representation of their enterprises in this region of space. The station also serves a diplomatic purpose, as it houses an embassy of the Aoraqet'yari Empire for any and all diplomatic relations. Rhas'akar'a Yis'eva was also constructed as a means to aid in the spread of Aoraqet'yari culture, as well as aid trade with the Aoraqet'yari Empire and facilitate the ease of transit within the region for Aoraqet'yari vessels during their routine exploration of the deep space surrounding the Aoraqet'yari Empire. And finally, among all other reasons, the station is seen as the beginning step towards bringing the end to several centuries of isolation.
