“At Cyroenia Shipyards, we're driven to excel.”
- - Senator Mizio
Cyroenia is one of the oldest and most respected planets in the Core Worlds of Cyrannus, colonised thousands of years prior to the formation of the Empire during the Great Manifest Period of the First Republic. One of the founding worlds of the First Republic, Cyroenia sought to become critical to the survival of the nascent democracy by setting out to excel the craft of starship construction. To this end, the Cyroenians constructed the vast shipyards of Cyroenia, which completely circle the planet in a vast ring of manufacturing excellence—which provided the First Republic, the Federation, the United Republic and the Empire with a large portion of their respective navies.
Located on one of the key intersections of the Perliama Hyperlane, Cyroenia lies on the hyperspatial crossroads of the Perliama as it enters the Core Worlds toward Acrocanthaí and Alsakatiir, the Lower Capricorn Spine rimward toward the Twelve Worlds and the shorter Coeluan Lane toward Cyroenian affiliate worlds such as Coeluan, Orgaen, Andoois and Daisúngur. Despite the planet's prosperity and the sheer power of the world within the Empire, the actual world below the ring is quite unremarkable from a cultural standpoint. Indeed, while heavily protected by one of the largest assembled Imperial defence fleets, the people of Cyroenia are known for their cavalier attitude toward galactic governments. Exemplified by figures such as Mandator Tira Mizio, Cyroenians are stereotyped as pragmatic and non-ideological, seeking to further the interests of Cyroenia over those of the wider galaxy.
During the Great War, the planet was viciously attacked by Zillum of the Confederacy of Allied Systems, whose goal was to conquer the planet and utilise its vast technological resources to ensure a swift Confederate victory over the flailing Republic. Gaining the upper hand in the conflict, Zillum was repelled only through the swift action of Fleet of Retribution—a united Cyrandia fleet of both the Republic and Rambo Nation. After the battle ended, Senator Mizio began designing new ships for the Republic, including the feared Imperator-class Star Destroyer which would go on to define the subsequent generation as the ultimate weapon of naval warfare. When the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus was formed in the aftermath of the Great Cyrannus War, Cyroenian Shipyards immediately pledged their allegiance to the new Imperial hyperpower. The Imperials began updating and improving the ring surrounding the planet, increasing the production rate significantly.
Early History Edit
Cyroenia is located in the system of the same name, one of the richest systems in the Cyrannus Galaxy. It has long been a rich and notable colony in the United Republic of Cyrannus and is known for its plains and forests. The planet was colonized by mainly Capricaerónn colonists before the unification of the Twelve Colonies, and so it is culturally similar to Capricaerón. It has long rivalled Scorpia as the prime ship building planet in Cyrannus and competition was fierce between the two, of course until the Intergalactic War when Scorpia fell to the might of the Cognatus.
The planet is generally upper class and can be considered quite snobby and uptight, because of this, many poorer colonies dislike the people of Cyroenia. During the Second Galactic War, President Inviere called for the planet to be home to the nation's first megastructure, the Cyroenia Shipyards, a gigantic ring world surrounding the planet.
Republic Era Edit
Construction was put on hold during the Intergalactic War, and yet, as soon as the war ended the new president, Apollo called for construction to recommence immediately. In orbit over the planet, other ship yards surrounding the planet were built at a frightening speed, producing many hundreds of ships every week. Construction on the Ring-world was in full fling. The Cyreonia System was becoming one of the busiest in the Republic.
However the Imperial Alliance learned of the expansion of Cyroenia from its impressive arsenal of spies and bounty hunters, and decided that they would send a single destroyer to impede the efforts of the URC and the Cyrandia from building this hub of naval activity.
A single Mortalitas ship, the Benevolent, flagship of Zillum dropped out of hyperspace near the ring, and opened fire upon it, however Zillum learned that it would take more then even his ship's impressive fire-power to piece the rings armor. Suddenly a Venator-class Star Destroyer appeared and attacked the Benevolent, but to no effect, the ship had impenetrable shields of it own. Zillum ordered the Venator destroyed and with a single turbolaser volley, it was done. However, a huge Republic fleet appeared causing the Benevolent to retreat. This incident caused worry of a renewed Mortalitas War against the allies.
After several months of arduous construction, the shipyards were finally completed in record time. The entire ring was completed and soon started to churn out Star Destroyers. President Apollo, Willelmus Cretacea and Admiral Shaw were all present at the ceremonies. As the construction was such a success, Apollo ordered that many more similar shipyards enter construction all around Cyrannus, Cyroenia however will remain the most important.
Great Cyrannus War Edit
The planet came under a fierce Confederate attack in the first year of the Great Cyrannus War, when the Mortalitas General Zillum returned to the planet with a massive fleet. His goal wasn't the destruction or disruption of the shipyards as before, but the conquering of the planet and as such, robbing the Republic of their primary military capabilities, thus insuring the Confederacy an early victory in the war.
Although Zillum and the Confederacy got the upperhand in the early stages of the battle, the timely arrival of the Cyrandia Alliance, Willelmus Cretacea and Rambo Nation, the battle began to even out in favour of the Republic and its allies. Ultimately, Zillum was forced to flee, his fleet defeated and the reconstruction of the destroyed Republic ships damaged in the battle began. Within a few months of the battle, life on Cyroenia continued as before with more and more ships being churned out.
Later, during the second year of the war, Senator Mizio approached Apollo with plans for a new supership known as the Imperator-class Star Destroyer, though he didn't want to act alone in its approval, Apollo brought several other senators with him, including Senator Guolivian and Senator Chacia to survey the design. For days, the senate debated the new ship design, though those in favour eventually won out, and the Imperial-class was put into production.
Imperial Era Edit
When the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus was formed in the aftermath of the Great Cyrannus War, Cyroenian Shipyards immediately pledged their alligence to the new Imperial hyperpower. As such, the Imperials began updating and improving the rings surrounding the planet, increasing the production rate signifigently. Cyroenia is now the main producer of the Empire's warmachine and one of the main headquaters of the Imperial Navy.
During the second year of Imperial rule, construction was completed on the first Executor-class Star Dreadnought, named the Executor. When it's commanding officer, Zillum arrived at Cyreonia, even he was amazed with the power of the vessel and the pride the Cyroenia Shipyards held in it, constructing the most powerful vessel in Cyrannian history in the space of a few months. Soon, Zillum left Cyroenia in the Executor, while the Empire's designers began coming up with vessels straight out of nightmares...
Senator Mizio is a very famous individual in the galaxy, having designed most, if not all Republic and later Imperial vessels used by both nation's navy, including the Venator-class Star Destroyer and the later Imperator-class Star Destroyer. Mizio is the current senator for Cyroenia, one of the most important worlds in the Republic, being the center of the Empire's Fleet Building capabilites. She is young, and yet she has political savvy and goes by her own motivations, not those of her people. For example, before the Great Cyrannus War, she voted for the Republic to wage war on the Confederacy of Allied Systems due to the amount of money it would raise for her shipyards. Many senators dislike Mizio for this, but they feel that she holds a lot of influence.
During the Great Cyrannus War, Mizio played a large part of protecting Cyroenia from the Confederate Invasion, with her help and her constant communication with the senior fleet admirals such as Willelmus Cretacea or Rambas II. She was largely commended for her role in the battle. When she returned to the Senate, she had an argument with Raen Magalen about the future of the war.
When the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus rose in the aftermath of the war, Mizio was nothing short of delighted, as the new hyperpower called upon Cyroenia to provide more and more ships, making her very rich and influential.
Lovidicus is a native of Cyroenia and is strongly patriotic to his homeworld, initially opposing plans by the Republic Government to construct the massive ring that now surrounds the planet. Though an influential member of the Cyroenia House of Lords, he was unable to defeat the motion, and the ring was eventually built. Lovidicus eventually came to peace with his defeat, though held a grudge against the Republic that wouldn't be lifted until they successfully defended the planet against Zillum and the Confederacy of Allied Systems.
When the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus came to power, Lovidicus welcomed the new regime and was chosen by the Emperor as the Mandator of the Cyroenia Sector, a position that gave him much power. However, he still clashes with the current Senator, Mizio over her more aggressive views.
