TIAF Heartland Territories

The Heartland Territories: Tyrus-Kylessa, Jaylisia, Erion, Anthalti, and Core Rim.

It was difficult to tell where that horizon between earth and cosmos lay, for the worlds of the Heartlands shone as brightly as the stars in the night sky.

- Ikata Sorinshi, Golden Age Ornaethon writer

The TIAF has a sizable territorial presence in the Bunsen Galaxy, controlling most of the Janus and Delta Sectors as well as the southern Mellus and Alpha Sectors. TIAF expansion towards the Core is primarily bounded by the TIAF's borders with the Bunsen Grox Republic, while outward expansion away from the Core is limited only by colonization funding and courtesy to native empires in as-of-yet unsettled northern regions. The TIAF is also an intergalactic nation, controlling a number of intergalactic colonial sectors in numerous galaxies, most of which exist under the blessing (or indifference) of native galactic powers.

The primary territorial divisions of the TIAF are Provinces and States, both of which form the layers of government between the federal level and planetary level in the Federation.

States are the sovereign territories controlled by individual species states, assuming that there existed a sovereign government for that species upon their recognition as a TIAF member species. States are represented in the High Council with three Councillors each, and are the primary arbiters and directors of planetary policy within their expanse. The borders of states are frequently used as guidelines for demographic and organizational divisions at sub-Provincial levels, with units such as Board of Representatives districts rarely crossing State lines.

Provinces are larger territorial groupings that tend to encompass multiple states and whole regions. Provinces elect their own Provincial Governors and Provincial Assemblies, and the Provincial level is considered above the State level for the purposes of legal precedence. Provincial governments tend to play a less involved role in the policy of planets than respective State governments; however, especially in colonial Provinces which typically have few or no States, the Provincial government is capable of acting with the same directness and intimacy as a State government.

A Quick Guide For Reading This Page Edit

Each planet will include a brief summary of important statistics and information at the start of their entry, listing their Astrographic Name, TerraScore, Sovereignty, Population, Demographics, Strategic Value, and Economy. This section will briefly explain some of the terminology used in these evaluations.

  • Astrographic Name - In addition to their regular name, all planets are given a standardized astrographic name under the Allied Bunsen Galaxy astrometric conventions. A planet's astrographic name is comprised of its system name, followed by its orbital position represented in numerals. Satellites of a planet are further identified by their orbital around their planet, indicated by a letter after the numeral.
  • TerraScore - Bunsen Galaxy nations utilize two different scales to measure a planet's overall habitability: the Intergalactic TerraScore Scale and the Bunsen Galactic TerraScore Scale. As all planets receive a rating on both scales, both TerraScores will be listed for each planet.
  • Sovereignty - Which species State the planet belongs to. State governments tend to be the primary external influence on an individual planet's policy, and planetary policy tends to be aligned with their parent state's strategic goals. Some planets may deviate from central state policy strategy, either due to the state giving the planet higher autonomy or the planetary government being particularly assertive with their own will. Planets with 'N/A' as their Sovereignty have no State governing them and are directly overseen by their Provincial government.
  • Population - How many inhabitants the planet has. This number is based on official censuses, so it may not account for undocumented residents or individuals living on the planet that are not considered residents. For this reason, the actual number of inhabitants may actually be higher, especially if the planet is experiencing an influx in immigration.
  • Demographics - Which species comprise the planet's population. For practical purposes, only the species that make up a significant proportion of the planet's population are listed, in order to give an idea of the planet's social and cultural makeup. Smaller worlds tend to be primarily populated by the species that originally colonized it or local regional species, while large cosmopolitan worlds can potentially have every major spacefaring species in the galaxy represented in their populations.
  • Strategic Value - Strategic value refers to the value of the planet in a military "strategic" sense, measuring the planet's contributions to the country's ability to wage war, both in a tangible political, economic, or astrographical sense and in an intangible sociocultural sense. Generally speaking, strategically valuable worlds have some critical property that would impair the normal function of society if lost, especially in wartime. Political centers, cultural centers, economic keystones, population centers, research worlds, transportation hubs, and military bases can all be considered strategically valuable.
  • Economy - Economy describes the planet's major economic proficiencies and dependencies, and the status of the planet's flow of trade. Most worlds have some economic sectors in which they specialize or are particularly strong in, which is the planet's economic proficiencies. Most worlds also rely on other worlds for some commodities, almost always commodities that they are incapable of producing enough of on their own, which is the planet's dependencies. Flow of trade describes the vibrancy of the planet's interplanetary trade and commerce, with greater flow of trade generally correlating to greater economic development as the planet is more able to acquire its dependent commodities and take advantage of its economic proficiencies.

Tyrus-Kylessa Province Edit

TIAF Tyrus-Kylessa Province Map

Map of Tyrus-Kylessa Province.

Tyrus-Kylessa Province is at the very heart of the Heartland Territories, the central TIAF territories in Bunsen. A region dense with numerous unique species, Tyrus-Kylessa is considered unique by many in that it has never been truly dominated by any single or handful of species, unlike many territories in other major galactic powers and even within the Federation itself. Early in the Federation's history, this diversity proved to be a critical detriment as it was difficult to unite the myriad disparate species of Tyrus-Kylessa under a common TIAF ideology, leading to the internal conflicts characteristic of the Genesis Era. However, as the Tybusen matured as leaders in Tyrus-Kylessa and the region began to stabilize with the oversight of Tropicana, Tyrus-Kylessa's multicultural composition became one of the Province's greatest assets, with the diverse community of cultural perspectives leading to unmatched economic dynamism that made Tyrus-Kylessa one of the most highly-developed regions of the galaxy as well as contributing to the Federation's rise as a galactic and intergalactic power.

Tyrus-Kylessa is made up of two major star clusters: Tyrusan in the north, and Kylessa in the south. The two clusters are connected by the narrow Camed Pass in the center of Tyrus-Kylessa. When the Camed Pass isn't considered a sub-region of its own, the middle of the Pass is used to define the border of Tyrusan and Kylessa. Zoladnia and Camed are commonly accepted as representing the boundary between "north" and "south" in the Camed Pass. The worlds of the Tyrusan north are noted for their strong heavy industrial focus, while the Kylessan south tends more towards post-industrial commerce and services. Tyrus-Kylessa borders Jaylisia Province in the north, and Erion Province in the south.

Tropicana

Tybusen City, the largest city on Tropicana, and the Great Sea Bridge

  • Astrographic name - Gandropsy I
  • TerraScore - 3 (Intergalactic scale), 5 (Bunsen Galactic scale)
  • Sovereignty - Tybusen
  • Population - 30.2 billion
  • Demographics - 56% Tybusen, 16% Singtoo, 14% Metedarl, 14% other
  • Strategic value - Capital of Tyrus-Kylessa Province and capital of the entire Federation. Major population center for Tyrus-Kylessa. Homeworld of the Tybusen.
  • Economy - Diverse, mixed industrial and post-industrial; outside of the large service sector typical of such a populous and politically-important world, shipbuilding and heavy manufacturing are the primary industries. Trade-dependent for food and raw materials. Vibrant flow of trade due to central location in Tyrusan trade network, large civilian market, and relative galactic and intergalactic political importance.

Overview

The provincial capital of Tyrus-Kylessa Province and the capital world of the entire Federation, Tropicana is by far the most important world of the Federation. Originally one of the youngest and least developed homeworlds in the Federation, Tropicana quickly blossomed during the genesis of the Federation as its influence as the seat of Federation government grew alongside the development of the Federation as a whole. Monuments of Tybusen history, such as the Great Sea Bridge and the Imperial Palace, and celebrations of Federation glory, such as the Central Federal Complex and Central Defense, are commonplace in Tybusenia, the central city of Tropicana.

Perhaps as a consequence of the proud Tybusen engineering tradition, Tropicana maintains a surprisingly large industrial sector for a world of its size and affluence, specializing in shipbuilding and heavy manufacturing. The strong industrial presence is explained by early Tybusen interstellar history, as early Tybusen colonies such as Tyrus and Pucutoras could not sustain heavier industries, which forced Tropicana to bear the burden of heavy manufacturing and shipbuilding and allowed the industries to become entrenched in TIAF-era Tropicana. Tropicana also hosts a robust service sector and financial sector as expected of a populous central urban world, and is an important financial center in Tyrus-Kylessa. Renowned universities such as the University of Tropicana draw in aspiring young students, alongside key military institutions such as the central Pilot's Academy campus.

History

Archaeological records and recovered Novaterran databases indicate that Tropicana was colonized by the Novaterrans in the mid-late Old Powers Era. The lush, T5 world was planned to be the vanguard of a Novaterran colonization rush into the Tyrusan cluster and Lower Jaylisia, though the Novaterran-Vosig Wars continually delayed regional colonization plans until they were ultimately officially scrapped in the face of the Skal'Vokra scourge in the Great Cataclysm. The colony on Tropicana was abandoned, then destroyed by marauding Skal'Vokra, though with minimal impact to the planetary biosphere.

The first sedentary Tybusen civilization emerged on the planet roughly 4,500 years ago, and the Tybusen progressed as a global civilization largely undisturbed and unnoticed by surrounding interstellar species such as the Kirgle and Brawgle. Tybusen civilization on Tropicana became mostly unified by the 400s PSY, and became an interstellar civilization with the first interstellar launch in 0 SY. Most of the uniquely Tybusen landmarks of Tropicana were produced in this pre-interstellar period, as the short timespan between the Tybusen becoming interstellar and the founding of the TIAF left little room for uniquely Tybusen interstellar development.

The founding of the TIAF in 270 SY made Tropicana the seat of the Federation government, though the planet at the time was dwarfed economically by Raysong and even Asonyeron, the homeworlds of the other two founding TIAF species. The struggles of the planet to keep up with the demands of its high station and general uncertainty regarding the capability of Tybusen leadership led to the Genesis Panic, which devastated the fledgling interstellar Tybusen economy and the Tropicana planetary economy and threatened to collapse the Federation. However, the revitalization efforts of Emperor Xavier I and James Lorrelas rescued the Tybusen economy from the brink, primarily by subsidizing Tropicana shipbuilding and manufacturing to provide a stable economic base for the planet and the state.

The success of the Tybusen Comeback and the restored confidence in the Federation would bring a rising tide to Tropicana, as its growing importance as the capital of an emerging power brought economic boom and cultural bloom. The frontier wars of the Galactic Era TIAF, namely the Erion Wars, bolstered Tropicana's industrial base as the TIAF military-industrial complex grew in influence, and the unions with the Core Rim and Anthalti expanded the Federation's reach and, by extension, Tropicana's reach. With the establishment of the Galactic Network, Tropicana grew into a world of international galactic importance as the TIAF took an active role in the politics of the early New Powers Era.

The Days of Darkness saw a period of decline and decay for Tropicana, as the planet became the target of both the Levisala Confederacy in the First Bunsen War and the Rebellion in the TIAF Civil War. The VFP occupation in the aftermath of the TIAF Civil War took a great toll on the planet's prosperity, as billions evacuated the planet to escape potential persecution under the VFP regime, leaving much of the planet's urban areas in disrepair. By the end of the War of Redemption, the effects of the numerous battles fought for Tropicana in such a short period of time were clear, and the planet was at its lowest point since the Genesis Era.

Reconstruction efforts began in the Intergalactic Era, though they were interrupted by the USS Eagle Incident in the Holy Shadow War and later again by the onset of the Annihilation. The planet mostly evaded attack during the Second Bunsen War, however, giving Tropicana the breathing room it needed to finally reclaim its interrupted glory as the capital world of the Federation as the Intergalactic Era continued. The establishment of GITO and the Xonexi economic bloc lifted Tropicana further, as the planet gained intergalactic political and economic importance. Tropicana today continues to enjoy the splendor of its status as an intergalactic world, and while hardly comparable to older, grander capital worlds such as Orbispira or Alcanti, it has become an iconic planet for the Bunsen Galaxy and its emerging young intergalactic civilizations.


Raysong
Spore 2013-02-18 17-04-24

Nirada, the second-largest city on Raysong, from Fort Raysong

  • Astrographic name - Kylessa II
  • TerraScore - 3 (Intergalactic scale), 5 (Bunsen Galactic scale)
  • Sovereignty - Metedarl
  • Population - 24.8 billion
  • Demographics - 53% Metedarl, 21% Tybusen, 11% Corgel, 8% Fernikki, 7% other
  • Strategic value - Major population center for Tyrus-Kylessa. Homeworld of the Metedarl.
  • Economy - Diverse, mostly post-industrial; finance, entertainment, and media comprise the planet's chief economic sectors. Trade-dependent for food, construction materials, and manufactured goods. Has a very vibrant flow of trade thanks to centralized location in Kylessan trade network, a large civilian market, and a strong financier class.

Overview

Often described as the "second capital" of the Federation, Raysong is the affluent, highly-developed homeworld of the Metedarl with economic and cultural status arguably in league with Tropicana and the capitals of the other great galactic capitals of Bunsen. The centerpiece of Kylessan Cluster trade and commerce, Raysong has been a major well of economic gravity both before and during the TIAF era, owing to numerous Kylessan and Kylessan-Erion political and trade associations organized by the Metedarl. Alongside the gleaming spires of big business, the skylines of Raysong are also dotted with the distinct architecture of theaters, studios, and broadcast centers.

The central location and economic influence of Raysong within the highly populous Kylessan Cluster makes it a prime center of operations for the regional financial sector, with only a handful of Kylessan worlds such as Kawkis and Murong able to support financial operations on a comparable scale. This in turn attracts all manner of young enterprising businesses to Raysong's cities, many in services or new technologies. The strong financial sector and heavy volume of traffic through Raysong's space has also fostered the growth of a well-developed and heavily-entrenched entertainment and media industry on Raysong, being considered one of the performing arts capitals of the Federation in much of the same way Broadway or Hollywood were idealized by Terrans of the 20th century and beyond. Many premier performing arts colleges and institutions make their home on Raysong, giving Raysong a strong magnetic pull on young artists alongside young entrepreneurs.

History

Raysong was originally colonized by the Novaterrans relatively early in their interstellar history, being fairly close to the original Novaterran homeworld in Upper Erion. At the time of colonization, Raysong was already a lush T2-3 world, attracting Novaterran colonists with its congenial environment without need for terraforming, a technology that the Novaterrans had yet to perfect. Raysong, referred to as Ruhisa in Novaterran times, became a major hub world in the northern Novaterran Federation as the Novaterrans expanded into what is now the Tyrus-Kylessa area. After significant advances in Novaterran terraforming technology, Ruhisa was terraformed into a T3-5 world, a status it retains to this day.

As a major world, the Ruhisa colony became a target of Vosig assaults in the Novaterran-Vosig Wars and the Skal'Vokra scourge in the Great Cataclysm. While Ruhisa survived the Novaterran-Vosig Wars without crippling damage, the colony eventually was devastated by the Great Cataclysm, with much of the world's infrastructure and cities left in ruins. As with every other Novaterran world after the Cataclysm, the remaining population of Ruhisa abandoned the colony to join the wandering fleets of the Old Powers in search of a place to start anew. The course of time swept the remaining traces of Novaterran settlement beneath the earth.

During the early post-Galactic Silence interstellar re-population, Raysong was settled by a group of Metedarl refugee fleets fleeing the destruction of the old Metedarl Empire in the Metedarl-Grox War, hoping to establish a new Metedarl homeworld far from the borders of the hostile, territorial Bunsen Grox Empire. The planet was given its current name Raysong by these settlers, from a Metedalic phrase expressing hope for a bright future.

Though the original settlers of Raysong were not aware of the Novaterran infrastructure lying beneath the surface, the ruins of Ruhisa were soon discovered and explored only a few generations after the Metedarl had first arrived. Though the excavated technology was no longer in a working state, Metedarl science and engineering received a great boon from the discoveries, and Raysong's urban planners took hints from the traces of old Ruhisa's layout to better optimize the development of Raysong's cities. These would all help Raysong develop into a world worthy of being compared to early interstellar homeworlds despite not being a "true" homeworld in of itself.

The expansion of trade and cooperation with contemporary nearby open societies, such as the Corgel, Rammoterror, and, later on, the reformed Wub, began to establish the Metedarl's status as a growing local power and trade broker, with Raysong forming the central axis of the Metedarl network. As new species continued to enter the Kylessan and Upper Erion interstellar communities, the Metedarl were quick to establish friendly relations with new contacts, expanding Raysong's reach and protecting it from any threat of foreign hostility. By 0 SY, with the Metedarl expanding into the Tyrusan area, Raysong had become one of the most powerful worlds in the Tyrusan-Kylessan-Erion economic zone, in league with other old, well-developed homeworlds unmarred by war, such as Romus and Penium.

At the founding of the TIAF in 270 SY, Raysong was the clear powerhouse of the Federation's original three capitoline worlds, with Asonyeron held back by the quadpartite territorial wars of Tyrusan and Tropicana being too young. Raysong's influence continued to grow as more species joined the Federation; however, the heavy Metedarl investment into the development of Tropicana and other Tybusen colonies resulted in an economic backlash with the outbreak of the Genesis Panic, dealing Raysong with one of its most severe recessions in its recorded history. By the end of the Tybusen Comeback, Raysong still remained a premier Federation world despite the setback, but it had become clear that Tropicana was now on course to eventually overtake Raysong in the future. This was no cause for concern, however; Raysong would still remain an influential world in Tyrus-Kylessa Province, and the prosperity of the Federation as a whole meant prosperity for Raysong as well. The Golden Age demonstrated this, as while Tropicana surpassed Raysong in economic development with the rise of the Galactic Network, Raysong also rode the rising tide to remain one of the most developed worlds in the entire galaxy.

Raysong would experience its first prospects of foreign attack in a long time with the onset of the Erion Wars in the 600s SY, where Raysong was considered a lucrative, though difficult to reach and hold target by Tuunk and Raboon war planners. The tide of war never reached Raysong, though the planet invited significant military infrastructure to be set up on the planet's surface in anticipation of contemporary and future conflicts, much of which still remains in-place and commissioned to this day. Similarly, Raysong anticipated attack in the Caigiancia War of the late Golden Age, though the Levisala invasion was never able to breach the border of Erion and Tyrus-Kylessa.

Raysong's first military engagement would finally arrive with the First Bunsen War, where Raysong was able to ward off invasion and siege attempts by separate Levisala and Bunsen Grox campaigns, though not without beginning to feel the strain of a perpetual defensive footing. Raysong was not spared the front lines in the TIAF Civil War, being one of the major points of contention between the Loyalists and Rebellion in the Kylessa-Erion theater. Though a large portion of Raysong's population fled to Delpha Province after the fall of Tropicana, a significant number of Loyalist soldiers and militia chose to remain on Raysong in order to keep the affluent world out of VFP hands, becoming the center of the Kylessan resistance network. The resistance on Raysong was eventually defeated, along with the rest of the Kylessan resistance, though not without significant cost to the VFP as well as to the planet's infrastructure. Raysong was the strategic goal of the first phase of the TIAF's reconquista strategy in the War of Redemption, being one of the first worlds liberated in the course of the war.

Much like Tropicana, Raysong had visibly suffered at the hands of the wars of the Days of Darkness, and reconstruction efforts began soon after the end of the War of Redemption. Raysong's recovery went smoothly up until the outbreak of the Second Bunsen War, where Raysong was once again the target of Levisala and VFP attacks; however, the planet did not sustain nearly as much damage as it had during either of the Days of Darkness wars, and was able to bounce back much more quickly. After the conclusion of the war and beginning of the post-Annihilation era, Raysong finally recovered to its antebellum levels, and became a major benefactor of the TIAF's involvement in the Xonexi economic network.


Tyrus
Spore 2013-02-18 16-25-35

Tyrria, the capital city of Tyrus

  • Astrographic name - Keltos II
  • TerraScore - 3 (Intergalactic scale), 4 (Bunsen Galactic scale)
  • Sovereignty - Tybusen
  • Population - 14.6 billion
  • Demographics - 57% Tybusen, 21% Singtoo, 12% Metedarl, 10% other
  • Strategic value - Major population center for Tyrus-Kylessa. Considered one of the primary bread-basket worlds of Tyrus-Kylessa. Has major cultural significance to the Tybusen.
  • Economy - Diverse, mixed industrial and post-industrial; staple agriculture is the planet's primary export focus, with light manufacturing and diverse services also contributing. Trade-dependent for raw materials and heavy manufactured goods. Enjoys a vibrant flow of trade as a result of central location in the Tyrusan trade network and a large civilian market.

Overview

Historically known as the breadbasket of the Tybusen state and later one of the breadbaskets of its namesake Tyrus-Kylessa Province, Tyrus has been an important world since its original colonization. Chosen as the first Tybusen interstellar colony due to its proximity to Tropicana and its promising potential to support life, Tyrus was later made the subject of a successful terraforming project that transformed it into a lush, fertile agricultural world. While the bulk of Tyrus' agricultural production is now handled by vertical farms in gritty urban Tyrus, the verdant Tyrus countryside is still populated by picturesque homesteads and plantations.

Tyrus enjoys a very stable economic base in providing foodstuffs for the highly populous and very dense Tyrusan region, finding no shortage of mouths to feed and few other farming worlds in the area that match Tyrus' production. A diverse manufacturing and service economy is built upon Tyrus' industrial agriculture foundation, providing a wide range of employment options for the majority of Tyrus' metropolitan population. In addition, a notable artistic community makes its home on Tyrus, often attracted either to the pastoral countryside or the industrial urban landscape. As a whole, however, Tyrus is a considerably less wealthy planet compared to planets of similar population, as lucrative financial and high-tech operations tend to congregate on other planets in the region. This is often said to be the reason for the distinctively gritty, hard-nosed culture of urban Tyrus.

History

Tyrus was a known borderline T0-T1 planet in Novaterran times, harboring hardy plants and animals in its temperate zones and being generally inhospitable elsewhere. Recovered databases indicate that Tyrus, then called Caroli II, was considered a candidate for terraforming in a prospective colonization rush in the Tyrusan cluster, but the continuation of the Novaterran-Vosig Wars continually delayed plans and eventually made the terraforming project deemed prohibitively expensive. While a small utility outpost was established by Novaterran colonists, it was abandoned after the Great Cataclysm and very little archaeological evidence of its existence remains.

Tyrus remained known but generally uninteresting to the post-Silence civilizations of Tyrusan, with many seeing little incentive to colonize and further explore the planet. The Singtoo sent an exploration party to Tyrus during the second Singtoo interstellar colonization, naming the planet Alses II after the Singtoo name for the Keltos star. The exploration party judged that the planet was not a worthwhile investment compared to Gidaldra and Vallus, the two worlds ultimately colonized in the second colonization. The emergence of the Tyrusan Quadpartite Wars later in the pre-TIAF era would further discourage colonization of Tyrus, as a Tyrus colony would be a highly vulnerable target in the center of the Quadpartite belligerence zone.

Tyrus would finally be considered for colonization again with the emergence of the Tybusen, who were seeking unoccupied worlds close to Tropicana with the potential to support life. Tyrus stood out as one of the only worlds within the search radius to already support recognizable life, and was ultimately chosen to be the first Tybusen interstellar colony. The planet received its current name of Tyrus from an ancient myth that described a lost moon of Tropicana that was molded from the same material as Tropicana and was flung into the cosmos long ago, with the lost moon forever waiting to be reunited with its "mother world". While geological studies have confirmed that Tyrus could not possibly be the "ancient moon", the planet continues to carry such significance in the culture of the Tybusen.

Tyrus remained a small subsistence colony until the Genesis Panic and Tybusen Comeback. One of the revitalization and development projects of the Comeback called for a terraforming of Tyrus, aiming to expand the habitable zones of Tyrus and increase the fertility of the existing habitable zones. The techniques employed were heavily researched but yet untested, with many groups within the Tybusen state voicing concerns about irreversibly damaging the ecosphere of what was already a culturally significant world. Resistance to the terraforming project subsided only after the success of the other early Comeback projects built confidence in the ability of the Tybusen state to responsibly handle the effort.

The terraforming was deemed a preliminary success as the project proceeded smoothly with no significant problems as the Intimandando War drew to a close, with the technology used on Tyrus being considered for future terraforming projects on Zoladnia and Pucutoras. While colonization of the increasingly fertile world remained limited due to concerns that the project could hit a road bump, or worse, a backslide, many of the fears were assuaged as the project administration and an independent ecological authority deemed the ecosphere stable following the end of primary terraforming work in 623 SY.

The new promise of nearly a planet's worth of cheap, arable land brought a flood of homesteaders and entrepreneurs seeking to make new lives or fortunes off of the lush colony world. With the onset of the Erion Wars, the Tybusen state began subsidizing agriculture on Tyrus in order to feed the rapidly growing populations of Tropicana and Zoladnia, becoming a breadbasket for Tybusen worlds who were increasingly reallocating farmland for industrial use. With a healthy stream of new colonists pursuing the lucrative opportunities offered by both Tyrus' critically important agriculture and a young manufacturing industry emerging in metropolitan Tyrus, the oft-described golden age of Tyrus began with the onset of the Federation's Golden Age.

During the Golden Age, Tyrus prospered, with the planet's artistic community first emerging as the two halves of Tyrus became clear: its picturesque, pristine countryside standing in contrast with the bustling industrial metropolis. The Harvest Festival, one of Tyrus' most well-known traditions, was first celebrated in the Golden Age by artists and performers seeking to preserve the rural legacy of Tyrus as the planet's urban areas continued to sprawl outwards. By this point in time, Tyrus' agricultural production had soared to where it was not only providing for itself and much of the Tybusen state, but also for many other populous worlds in the Tyrusan region. By the end of the Golden Age, however, the drawbacks of Tyrus' heavy investment in agriculture began to rear themselves, with the average wealth per capita for Tyrus lagging behind similarly-sized worlds who were driven by industries that had become more lucrative and high-paying than agriculture or light manufacturing. Not long after, urban Tyrus began to acquire its gritty, unrefined reputation.

While losing some of its luster due to the aforementioned economic realities of the late Golden Age, the planet remained a critical breadbasket for Tyrusan as it had long been. While the planet was not affected by the Caigiancia War, the planet became a target of the Levisala invasion during the First Bunsen War, where the Levisala planned to cut off critical supply lines to Tropicana in preparation for the Battle of Tropicana. Tyrus ultimately survived the attack, and the failure of the Levisala to secure Tyrus is considered significant to the TIAF victory at Tropicana. Not long after the conclusion of the First Bunsen War, Tyrus became the site of the first battle of the TIAF Civil War, where Rebel warships partaking in the Harvest Festival military parade attacked the festival grounds, destroyed the local security force, and took numerous key military figures prisoner. Later in the war, Tyrus once again became an invasion target, and again stood defiant despite Rebel victories on other worlds in the same campaign. While much of the planet's population evacuated following the fall of Tropicana, a particularly determined resistance force remained on the planet and prevented the VFP occupation force from establishing order until late in the Redemption era. Tyrus would later be liberated during the campaign to retake Tropicana in the War of Redemption.

The defiance of the planet against occupation during the Days of Darkness had left more than a few battle scars, with much of the planet's infrastructure suffering significant damage as a result of the constant fighting. Much of the early Intergalactic Era was spent rebuilding, with the planet quickly getting back on its feet thanks to the combined efforts of eager locals and federal contractors. Tyrus eventually returned to its pre-First Bunsen War levels of productivity not long after the Second Bunsen War, where the planet saw comparatively little fighting compared to before. In recent years, efforts have been made to make Tyrus more attractive to new high-tech industries in order to rise above the economic plateau that the planet has experienced since the late Golden Age, though the campaign has yet to bear fruit. Despite this, however, Tyrus remains an important fixture in the Tyrus-Kylessa provincial economy and is in little danger of economic bust despite the lack of recent boom.


Kawkis
Spore 2012-06-27 13-25-36

Kawkis' largest city, Magenta Bay

  • Astrographic name - Curana VI
  • TerraScore - 3 (Intergalactic scale), 4 (Bunsen Galactic scale)
  • Sovereignty - Metedarl
  • Population - 18.7 billion
  • Demographics - 45% Metedarl, 21% Sir Beakenstein, 14% Wub, 11% Tybusen, 9% other
  • Strategic value - Major population center for Tyrus-Kylessa. Semi-important interstellar transportation hub for eastern Kylessa.
  • Economy - Diverse, mostly post-industrial; shipping and finance are by far the largest economic sectors. Trade-dependent for food and manufactured goods. A large civilian market, strong financial sector, and favorable position in the galactic trade network grant a very vibrant flow of trade.

Overview

One of the largest, and perhaps the largest commerce center in the Federation, Kawkis is a huge, sprawling paradise for traders and businessmen. Renowned for its streamlined cityscapes, the Metedarl take pride in being the rulers of Kawkis, which rakes in trillions of Sporebucks annually. It is governed by Governor Andrew Pyle, and is represented in the High Council by Councillor Marie Lusitana.

History

Kawkis was originally a cold T0 planet, on the distant edge of the Curana System. The planet was overlooked by the Terrans, despite being within 30 parsecs of Novaterra, the Terran capital.

Kawkis was visited and colonized by the Metedarl during their voyage to Raysong, to serve as a mining and trade post like its sister colonies Kaldiega and Vareock. The Metedarl later chose it along with Kaldiega and Vareock to be terraformed as part of a Metedarlian terraforming project. All three projects were a success, and Kawkis became a beautiful T3 planet.

Now able to support a much larger population, Kawkis became the center of trade for the Metedarl during the Genesis Era, and with commerce flocking to the trade ports, Kawkis established itself as the commercial capital of the TIAF. However, during the Genesis Era, Kawkis was subject to attacks by the Bunsen Grox, who still held resentment for the Metedarl. Luckily, by the Golden Age, a peace treaty was negotiated and trade could continue uninterrupted.

During the Bunsen War, Kawkis was attacked in the early stages of the war, but the Levisala were easily repulsed. Later, in the TIAF Civil War, Kawkis was targeted in a Rebel offensive along the Erion-Kylessa border, but the onslaught never reached Kawkis. In the subsequent War of Redemption, Kawkis was the site of two major battles of the war. The first was during the TIAF's Kylessan Liberation campaign, where the TIAF Kylessa fleet dominated the retreating VFP lines in a great dogfight. Later, during the VFP's Kylessa Storm campaign, Kawkis was one of the planets that the VFP aimed to hold as a result of the invasion. Although the VFP did manage to eventually force Kawkis into surrender, the ultimate failure of the VFP campaign eventually led to a swift second liberation of Kawkis.

Overview

Orbiting the great gas giant Dyonesia, Kaldiega is a rocky moon rich in metals widely used by the TIAF shipbuilding industry. It has huge deposits of titanium and adamantium metal, as well as the mineral vibranine, which is used to synthesize the namesake alloy vibranium. Mostly dominated by mining posts and underground cities built into the mountains, comedians often jokingly refer to the Metedarl planet as "hillbilly country of the TIAF", though many know that is far from true. It is overseen by Governor Alexander Burgress.

History

Kaldiega's obscure position in its orbit of Dyonesia made it mostly unknown to the Terrans, who had neglected to explore much of western Kylessa anyways. As such, it remained a slightly cool rock with no atmosphere throughout the Old Powers Era. It was discovered and colonized by the Metedarl during the Genesis Era, with its rich deposits of ore being invaluable to shipbuilding and steelworking industries. Kaldiega was later terraformed to T3 as part of the same terraforming project that had boosted its sister planet Kawkis to T3 as well.

Kaldiega remained untouched by war throughout the Golden Age, even during the perilous times of the Bunsen War and TIAF Civil War. During this time, rarer metals such as adamantium were first discovered on Kaldiega, which would later go on to replace the standard titanium-alloy steel that was commonplace in TIAF structures at the time. Like all TIAF holdings in Tyrus-Kylessa, though, Kaldiega was abandoned by the TIAF, and later occupied by the VFP.

Kaldiega was the site of the first battle of the War of Redemption, when invading TIAF forces led by Admiral Khoffman recaptured the mining posts and cities, and resisted a VFP counterattack to secure Kaldiega as the first TIAF planet reclaimed in the war. Around the conclusion of the War of Redemption, it was discovered that Kaldiega had great deposits of adamantium and vibranine, two metals superior to titanium that had previously been assumed to be extremely rare. The discovery set off other discoveries of adamantium and vibranine deposits on other mining planets, ushering out the old titanium standard and bringing much-needed advancement to the TIAF's hull structure technology with adamantium and vibranium now easily obtainable.

Erion Province Edit

One of the most significant regions in TIAF history, Erion Province has frequently been a source of unrest and internal conflict for the Federation. Early in the Federation's emergence as a local power, many native species of Erion banded together to resist the Federation's expansion into their territory, leading to such conflicts as the Erion Wars. Even after that, descendants of the defeated Erion natives have continued to harbor resentment towards the TIAF, a continuing pattern of unrest that has manifested in ways such as the TIAF Civil War. While modern Erion is significantly more stable and secure than in past eras, the undercurrent of frustration remains a persistent social issue in the region.

Like the star cluster it is situated in, Erion Province is usually unofficially divided into Upper Erion and Lower Erion. Some also recognize a distinct sub-region of Upper Erion, the Tau Spur, which is a southern offshoot of Upper Erion which is comprised of a small cluster of stars surrounding the Caigiancia Run. Upper Erion is often considered the center of many high-tech industries, such as computers and biotechnology, while Lower Erion is more sparsely inhabited and not nearly as developed as the Upper Erion and Core Rim regions which border it. Erion Province as a whole shares a border with Tyrus-Kylessa Province in the north, and with the Core Rim Province in the south.

  • Strategic value - Capital of Erion Province. Major population center for Erion. Holds historical significance to the species of Upper Erion. Has cultural significance to the Wub as a traditional Wub "core world."
  • Economy - Diverse, mixed industrial and post-industrial; has one of the largest biotechnology industry populations in the Federation, as well as medical industry presence and a diverse commercial service sector. Trade-dependent for food, raw materials, and civilian commodities. Local political importance, large civilian market, and central location in the Upper Erion trade network creates a vibrant flow of trade.

Overview

Situated in the heart of the Wub Federation in northern Erion, Erion is the provincial capital of the namesake Erion Province. The planet Erion bestowed its name to the province due to the planet being the original meeting location of the Erion Collective, a diplomatic organization from the early TIAF era that played an instrumental role in the course of Erionian history. Erion has many merits independent of its historical role as well, being one of the largest centers of biotechnology in the Federation and rivaling the Wub homeworld of Penium in terms of population size and economic development. Erion is currently governed by Governor Ketane Morrete.

Overview

A gleaming center of technology and progress, Penium prides itself on being both the homeworld of the Wub and the capital of information technology in the TIAF. Penium is situated in the northern parts of the Wub Federation, near the border of Erion Province and Tyrus-Kylessa Province, and has historically enjoyed close ties with trading planets in southern Kylessa. In addition to its strong trade presence in Upper Erion, Penium also enjoys a reputation as the national center of cutting-edge computer technology, a "Silicon Valley" of sorts for the TIAF. Between its highly developed metropolises, well-maintained ecosphere, and culturally diverse society, Penium is often given the nickname "The Sapphire of the South". Penium is currently governed by Governor Mariela Meruto, and is represented in the High Council by Alexander Serra.

Trade-dependent for food, construction materials, and manufactured goods. The large affluent civilian market and historical presence in the Upper Erion trade network generate a vibrant flow of trade.

Overview

One of the four "core worlds" of the Wub Federation and a sizable population center for Erion, Artotunus is one of many TIAF worlds shown as an example of national prosperity outside of the "capital worlds" and the "gleaming jewels" of the TIAF. While lacking most of the glamour, grandeur, and name recognition associated with these "core worlds" - such as Tropicana, Raysong, and Penium - Artotunus is still one of the most highly developed worlds in the Federation. Originally established as a southern port for the Wub and later the TIAF, Artotunus gradually diversified from its trade-focused origins and has become an affluent population center with a very strong service sector and post-industrial economy. With its many opportunities for aspiring professionals, Artotunus tends to attract young professional workers from many regions of the Heartlands, though especially those from less affluent regions of Erion and the Core Rim. This unique, youthful melting pot gives Artotunus a reputation within the Federation for being trendy and somewhat quirky in its local culture. Artotunus is currently governed by Governor Hans Shiroi, and is represented in the High Council by Eliana Aerine.

  • Strategic value - Major source of gaseous materials used in a variety of critical industrial and scientific processes.
  • Economy - Largely monocultural, mostly industrial; the extraction and refinement of gases and chemicals forms the sole backbone of the planetary economy, having yet to develop a stable service sector. Trade-dependent for food, machinery, and manufactured goods. The value of the planet's exports and a decently favorable astrographical position generate a decent flow of trade, in spite of the lack of economic diversity.

Overview

One of the most well-known among many rural planets in the Federation, Caldrez serves as one of the largest production centers for the comp-gas (compressed gas) industry, a materials industry highly important to the fueling and chemical industries. Housing many rich pockets of commonly-used and highly sought-after compressed gases, it may come as little surprise that Caldrez is mostly populated by industrial settlements dedicated to the extraction and refinement of these valuable resources. Despite having such a lucrative industry present (or, perhaps because of it), Caldrez has remained relatively rural and lacks major urban centers, in turn having very little sense of a modern middle class and being populated mostly by blue-collar working-class individuals. Caldrez is currently governed by Governor Maya Aryadrov.

Core Rim Province Edit

One of the most consistently prosperous and stable regions in the TIAF throughout its entire history, Core Rim Province is a thriving center of trade at the great international crossroads of the Core. Since official contact was established by the Erion Expedition in the early 300s SY, the states of the Core Rim have always shared a close, amicable relationship with the TIAF, culminating in their cooperation during the late Erion Wars and eventual integration into the Federation proper. Though the Bunsen Grox invasion during the First Bunsen War and Rebel attacks during the TIAF Civil War caused catastrophic damage to the shining worlds of the Core Rim, the region has since recovered to its former prosperity and has continued to grow beyond even that.

The Core Rim is officially divided into two regions, the Upper Rim and the Lower Rim. The Upper Rim constitutes most of what is traditionally considered Core Rim Province, containing most of Core Rim's key economic and strategic worlds; while the Lower Rim is more of a transition zone into the Larson Neutral Zone, the narrow strip of space delineating TIAF territory from BGR territory. Some also make a distinction for the strip of space extending from the eastern Core Rim to the international border near Etermayla; this region is aptly referred to as the Etermayla Corridor. Core Rim Province as a whole shares a border with Erion Province in the north, the BGR Larson-Tangenta Radial in the south, and the GSC Yoshrini Sovereignty to the east. The Levisala Corchea Territory lies to the distant west of the Core Rim but does not share a border with it.

Jaylisia Province Edit

Since the signing of the Federation Constitution in 270 SY, Jaylisia has been a vital bridge between the heart of the TIAF in Tyrus-Kylessa and the civilizations of Anthalti. Being the main conduit of trade between the two regions prior to the rise of the Wormhole Network, Jaylisia has enjoyed a relatively high amount of wealth and stability in its modern history, especially in northern Jaylisia where the most influential modern Jaylisian states reside. Jaylisia has always historically had a positive relationship with the TIAF, though most Jaylisian states did not join the Federation until the Anthalti Commonwealth Treaty placed immense pressure on the region to integrate. Though in many ways Jaylisia has declined from its former status as a great corridor of commerce - especially in Middle and Lower Jaylisia, where many species have relied on export trade as their economic backbones - it still remains an important region of the TIAF with a growing industrial economy.

Jaylisia Province is typically subdivided into three regions: Upper Jaylisia, Middle Jaylisia, and Lower Jaylisia. Upper Jaylisia is by far the most prosperous region of Jaylisia, being blessed with a relative wealth of resources and strong trade relationship with Anthalti. Middle Jaylisia, in contrast, is one of the most sparsely populated regions in the Federation, owing mostly to its low star system density and a lack of quality worlds among those limited choices. Lower Jaylisia, with a primarily industrial economy and close ties with Tyrusan, is often called an "extension of the Tyrusan Cluster", though this nickname tends to be used derisively more often than not. This is because many worlds in Lower Jaylisia exist in dependent trade relationships with either the handful of well-developed worlds in Lower Jaylisia or the industrial powerhouses of the neighboring Tyrusan Cluster. Jaylisia as a whole shares a border with Anthalti Province in the north and with Tyrus-Kylessa Province in the south.

Anthalti Province Edit

The northern edge of the Heartland Territories, Anthalti Province is by no means a frontier land and is a bustling center of industry and commerce. Like Erion, expansion into Anthalti initially met resistance due to a lack of respect, but Anthalti proved to be far more welcoming than Erion, mostly due to existing organizations in Anthalti being on good terms with the TIAF. Anthalti prides itself on being the rare pristine outer territory; this, of course, has led satirists to mock Anthalti as "Space Alaska". Anthalti borders Jaylisia Province to the south. Anthalti also borders the Outer Mellus Territories to the north.

Javion

The capital of the Bretalka Empire as well as the provincial capital of the Anthalti Province. It is the center of Mellus Sector military operatives as well. However, it is poor in resources, and is not an industrial planet, making it a bad investment for enemy invaders, though important for the TIAF.

Delta Province Edit

By far the largest single province in the TIAF, Delta Province spans most of its namesake Delta Sector, stretching from the Anthagese Neutral Zone in the south to the Spiral Expanse in the north. Delta, like many other regions bordering the Core, has been a thriving hub of trade and commerce for much of the galaxy's recorded history, receiving traffic from the numerous trade routes which travel along the outer Core Rim. While Delta in the Old Powers Era did not produce any particularly influential civilizations, modern Delta was the heart of the Coleph League, a Delta Sector alliance founded by the Coleph that became a fairly influential local power even if it did not come to match any of the five Modern Powers. The Coleph League agreed to a union with the TIAF in the 1300s SY, integrating the League's sector-wide expanse into the TIAF. Since its induction, Delta has become one of the Federation's key financial and industrial centers, though the region's prosperity has also attracted invasion by the Bunsen Grox in the First Bunsen War and by the Drakodominatus Tyranny in the Dominatus War.

Being such a large province on its own, Delta has three official subdivisions which are almost large enough to be provinces by themselves (albeit relatively small provinces). Delta is divided into Anthagea in the south, Mantell in the north, and Parvorand in the center. The Mantell region includes the TIAF's claims to the Spiral Expanse, though the Spiral Expanse is sparsely populated and Mantell "proper" is considered to end at the beginning of the Spiral Expanse. Similar to Core Rim Province, Anthagea transitions into the Anthagese Neutral Zone, which provides an unambiguous buffer space with the BGR in the south. As a whole, Delta Province borders the BGR Omega-Tangenta Radial to the south, Orion Province in the north, the AWA Sola Rim Dominion to the east, and the Draconid Imperium's Shellious territories in the northwest.

Orion Province Edit

Situated in the southern Alpha Sector, Orion Province is named for its proximity to Sol Nova, a strange replica of the Sol system in the Milky Way Galaxy. Orion Province and much of the Alpha Sector have historically been isolated parts of the galaxy, with traditional interstellar access to Orion being heavily restricted by the treacherous gravimetrics of the Spiral Expanse. The region only became well-documented and connected to the galactic network as a result of the Wormhole Revolution, which opened new routes to Orion outside of the Spiral Expanse. Exploration of lower Alpha, which would become Orion Province, uncovered a tranquil, though technologically-backwards interstellar community. Though the Orion Province states joined well before Intergalactic Contact, the Orion region did not become particularly notable until information exchange with Terran states revealed the anomalous nature of Sol Nova.

Compared to its southern neighbor Delta Province, Orion Province is a small province, spanning the region separating the Spiral Expanse from Sol Nova. Sol Nova and the region surrounding it is not part of Orion Province, as the region has been designated as a special colonial zone reserved for Terran colonists due to its unique cultural significance. Currently, the French Bunsen Colonies are the only Sol Nova colonies, so the French colonies represent the only major border which Orion Province has in the north. Past Sol Nova are largely poorly-charted swathes of Alpha Sector space.

Caigiancia Province Edit

Enclosed by Levisala space in the Mormea Sector and connected to the Erion planet Broly via the wormhole Caigiancia Run, Caigiancia Province is primarily a military zone for keeping the Levisala in check, as well as a transitory zone for Levisala defecting to the TIAF. Though relatively small, Caigiancia Province controls one of the most used trade links for TIAF-Mormea traffic, making it quite wealthy as well as strategically important.

Delpha Province Edit

Historically the first established TIAF Intergalactic Territory, Delpha was established long ago in the beginning of the TIAF Intergalactic Contact era. Situated on the edge of the Milky Way, near DCP colonial sectors, Delpha has long been a symbol of TIAF prosperity on the intergalactic scale. Its relative proximity to Bunsen as well as the TIAF's ally the DCP makes Delpha a very secure colonial sector. Recently, in the wake of the Andromeda War and the Plazith Galactic War, Delpha was attacked and nearly completely annexed by the Draconid Imperium. However, improved relations between the Imperium and Federation allowed Delpha to remain partly under TIAF sovereignty as a joint colonial zone between the Draconis and Federation.

Portea Province Edit

Portea was established not too long after Delpha, in the satellite Portea Galaxy. Due to the obscurity of Portea to the rest of the Gigaquadrant of the time, Portea was designed to be a secure backup galaxy for the TIAF if Intergalactic Contact went awry. Since Portea is still relatively unknown, Portea remains one of the more secure TIAF territories, especially with the TIAF's influential Portean allies in the region. Portea is regarded as one of the safest areas in the entire Federation, even if the Adriana pirates do tend to sometimes become problematic.

Kraw Galaxy Command Edit

Originally, Kraw Galaxy Command was little more than a few outposts to act as relays and checkpoints for transportation between TIAF posts in Bunsen and the Milky Way, and the TIAF's Kraw allies. However, the territory was soon expanded as a result of the Holy Shadow War, making Kraw more important to the TIAF and thus more worthy of a colonial sector. Kraw Command further expanded during the Kraw Liberation War and New Iteok War as a counter to tensions rising between the TIAF and Kies-era Kraw and the threat of the New Iteok Glory, respectively. Kraw Command is on high alert due to the proximity to the heart of Kraw and the threat of the New Iteok Glory and POOTIS.

Jora Province Edit

Like Kraw Command, Jora Province was originally a few outposts for communication and trade with the TIAF's ally the Jovar Empire. However, when the Split occurred and the TIAF pledged political and military support for the JPA, the TIAF built up what became known as the Jora Command Zone as to make their pledge much easier to maintain. Later, after the collapse of both Jovar states in the aftermath of the Annihilation, the Jora Command Zone was converted to the Jora Province, now acting as a critical hyperspace and wormhole switchboard in the TIAF's transportation network.

Quadrantia Province Edit

Quadrantia Province was established shortly before the outbreak of the Great Cyrannus War, with Rambo Nation inviting the TIAF to colonize Quadrant 82 as a symbol of their friendship. The colonial zone was established next to the Rambo Mid-Colonial Sector, putting it in close proximity to the lucrative Ramsoria Run and in convenient access range to the Wormhole Plateau, where a wormhole leading to the vicinity of Delpha Province was located. Along with its sister province Cyrandia Province, Quadrantia Province soon became a focal point of TIAF efforts to increase their presence in the Cyrandia Cluster in order to better assist their allies the United Republic of Cyrannus and Rambo Nation in the Great Cyrannus War.

With the rise of the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus and the subsequent destruction of Cyrandia Province and subjugation of Rambo Nation, Quadrantia Province became even more strategically important to TIAF interests in the region, representing the TIAF's only foothold in the Cluster during the Dark Times and a base for anti-Imperial action in the Quadrants. Today, in the midst of the Cyrannian Cold War, Quadrantia Province remains an important asset for the TIAF, continuing its role as a center for TIAF action in the Cyrandia Cluster and providing support to regional allies such as the New Cyrannian Republic.

Quadrantia Province is relatively small, being an intergalactic exclave whose existence was granted with Rambo approval. Quadrantia Province occupies a wedge of space next to the Rambo Mid-Colonial Sector, sharing its entire western border with Rambo space. To the south, the thin southern border of the province brushes with Ramsoria Run and the Wormhole Plateau, which makes the southern portion of Quadrantia Province relatively affluent and wealthy. To the east, Quadrantia Province shares some connections with friendly nations in the Quadrant 82 Neutrality Zone, though the recent erection of the Gorge has complicated communication between Quadrantia Province and trading partners in the Neutral Zone.

Borealis Province Edit

Borealis Province was founded as a result of a colonization rush in the Borealis Galaxy that included the TIAF. Borealis was established as a staging ground for future TIAF efforts in the galaxy, though currently Borealis is considered a low-priority galaxy on the TIAF's agenda. It is situated next to UNO space, though it has been relatively unscathed by the Second Borealis Galactic War compared to its neighbors. Borealis Province is on medium alert in case the Second Borealis Galactic War spreads to Borealis Province, but officials of both the federal government and the Borealis provincial government are not particularly concerned about it.

Andromeda Province Edit

Andromeda Province is currently the youngest TIAF colonial zone. Andromeda Province is on the outer rim of Andromeda in Segmentum Umbra, and was originally designed as a center for military operations in Andromeda, being originally called the Andromeda Command Zone. It was established leading into the TIAF's entry into the Andromeda War, to create a more efficient TIAF war effort in Andromeda. Following the end of the TIAF's war with the Draconis, Andromeda Province was converted into a civilian province. Today, it still serves as the focal point of TIAF operations in Andromeda, though many more of these operations are diplomatic than military compared to before.

Former TIAF Territories Edit

Not all TIAF-owned territories have stood the test of time. Many were destroyed by the Xhodocto during the Annihilation, having resided in galaxies ravaged by the Xhodocto. Others may have fallen victim to unfortunate wars and conflicts in the past.

Cyrandia Province † Edit

Cyrandia Province was the former central of the TIAF in the Cyrandia Galactic Cluster. Comprised of a handful of worlds colonized under permission by the old United Republic of Cyrannus, Cyrandia Province quickly grew to resemble some of the well-known worlds of Cyrannus. Though not nearly as majestic or population-dense as the Republic, Cyrandia was regarded as an idyllic province at one point. However, at the end of the Great Cyrannus War and the rise of the Cyrannian Empire, the First Imperial Concordat ordered that Cyrandia Province be abandoned along with all extragalactics in Cyrannus. The province voted to hold firm, and all of the colonies present, along with most of its civilians and present defenders, were swiftly destroyed by an Imperial fleet when the allotted evacuation time for the Concordat ran out.

Wental Territories † Edit

The Wental Territories were a high priority for the TIAF during the War of Wental and for part of the Second Bunsen War. Situated in the faraway Wental Galaxy, it was very far out from the rest of the TIAF's main territories. Luckily, Wental was close enough to Cyrannus for a Hyperspace Lane to be built between Cyrandia Province and the Wental Territories, significantly cutting the amount of time for trips between Wental and other TIAF territories in the main Gigaquadrant. It was founded during a colonization rush sponsored by the Wental Alliance (similarly as to how Borealis Province formed during a Borealis colonization rush). The TIAF kept secret their location through a combination of misinformation and "planet cloaking" (masking energy and EM output caused by the TIAF to prevent outside detection), though eventually it was discovered after the Wentals searched for it during the War of Wental. The Wental Territories were destroyed alongside the Wental Galaxy itself during the Annihilation, and all inhabitants of the Wental Territories were killed as the distance to the operational Arks in the Gigaquadrant was too great.

  • Sovereignty - Federal
  • Primary purpose - Minor population and agricultural planet. Minor research center.

Sana-Forma Territories † Edit

The Sana-Forma Territories included the TIAF's holdings in the Sana, Forma, and Campfree Galaxies. The TIAF obtained them as a result of their participation and victory in the Sporemaster Civil War. Sana-Forma, having been a low-priority galaxy for the TIAF (after the Sporemaster Civil War, of course), were not particularly well-developed and were mostly research posts to study the diverse races of the Sporemaster-Darkstar and to study the Sana and Forma Galaxies. It was said that some Sporemaster and Darkstar races alike protested the TIAF presence in Sana-Forma, though the councils of both alliances ultimately tolerated the TIAF's presence. Sana-Forma was destroyed alongside Sana and Forma, though most of the citizens either escaped with the Sporemaster Alliance or managed to make it to Bunsen or Portea in time for the Arturnias to have saved them.

Ottzello Territory † Edit

The Ottzello Territory, situated in the nearby Ottzello Galaxy, served as the base of operations for the TIAF in Ottzello. However, as the TIAF had little activity in Ottzello, the territory saw very little use. They were originally colonized as a result of a short conflict with the Loron during the DCP-Loron War. As that brief conflict ended before the Ottzello Territory gained any purpose, the Ottzello Territory mainly fell into disrepair due to a lack of government attention. It was said that most of the few planets that comprised the territory joined up with the then-fragmented Ottzello factions, primarily some of the Loron gangs. The Ottzello Territory was later wiped out by the Annihilation along with Ottzello itself, though the fate of what citizens remained was never determined.
