Mudaru Orbital swarm (sometimes spelled or pronounced Mudara Orbitals) was an Sophic League-aligned orbital swarm in the Kuranaba system inhabited by a number of old Solsys clades (ethnic Hindu, Jovian League, Space Adapted Human , etc.) during the Age of Expansion.
The system was later incorporated into the Sophic League following the establishment of Satyaloka with the ascension/emergence of the Blessed One and establishment of a microgauge wormhole link.
However, it was not connected to the Nexus, and on the macro-scale remained isolated for many millennia, ruled over by the 4th toposophic archailect Valusaban.
During the period from 7985 to 8385 the system was infected by a Hyperutilization Supremacy relativistic seed-node (ironically, long after the Supremacy had been forced back elsewhere); this was one of a number of such outbreaks across the Terragen Bubble that were to remain unknown, often for centuries.
Fortunately the infection was destroyed before attaining full 5th toposophic activity, in the Anandayanna-Uvartarasha War that culminated in the famous battle of Mudaru Orbital, although casualties were heavy. Local tradition has it that, in spite of the victory, the system remained tainted for many decades and even centuries. Soon after this Valusaban withdrew eir avatar. Many sophonts chose to upload and transcend as well, rather than remain in RL.
Those who did remain rebuilt their civilization with help from the Puysha-Paras and others who had participated in the war.
The orbital currently has a population of some 1 billion sophonts, mostly in the Mudaru Bishop rings and other orbital megastructures, with a smaller number living on several paraterraformed minor planets such as Mangalya.
