The colonist of this system established a rigourous communist hierarchy on the only
oxygen atmosphere planet of the system. The regime has prospered and the body politic
dominate the other worlds' starports. The population of the worlds are booming and increasing
in prosperity. All mining and industrial interests are state owned and largely automated.
Slavery is strictly forbidden and freedom is assured to anyone arriving in the territory
regardless of race. Religious ceremonies of any form are illegal and commitments made in
such circumstances are regarded as void under Enaness law.
All inhabitants of the system have a birthright guaranteed by the state, which is a single
journey ticket to either Earth or Capitol, no other property is acknowledged. Political
indoctrination begins early on in childhood, but anyone declaring a desire to leave is free to do
so. There is no return permitted, however. Immigration to the worlds is strictly controlled and
all goods are turned over to the state on arrival. Traders and visitors sometimes find the
attitude of the inhabitants to material goods disconcerting.
The academy of Rymhananman is justly famous for its theoretical physics and
chemistry departments. It also boasts the foundation established by Wyksyrodra Baranha to
explore and exploit Enaness 4. Wyksyrndra is famous for his conjecture that the fourth planet
of Enaness was the homeworld of a civilised alien race, who later terraformed Charles Colony
when they rendered their own world uninhabitable by excessive pollution. The evidence for
this theory is hotly disputed by many eminent archeologists, but they are at a loss to explain
the peculiar mineral deposits of Enaness 4 and the absence of ancient fossils on Enaness 5.
The abrupt appearance of life 'sprung full grown in all its glory' suggests, to Baranha,
tentative evidence of the works of an ancient spacefaring civilisation.
If this theory is correct, there is no doubt that the alien species, and all tangible artifacts
have disappeared during the intervening millennia. Part of the work of the foundation is to analyse the native species of other alien worlds and see if there are any anomalous similarities
across worlds. The task is monumental and no conclusive results are expected for at least a
century. The foundation is supported by voluntary contributions from a number of trusts and
charities. For information about donations, consult your local library database.
