Local trade and cultural world, Centauri sector. Nominally part of the Negentropist empire but near the borders with the Paradigm and the Utopia Sphere; memetics from all three systems (as well as NoCoZo and NoCoNeg, and Disarchy ideas) flourish there. Nearest stargate to the Paradigm. During the Paradigm containment war was a major staging post for PCO forces. Currently a popular tourist jaunt, especially with the alternative crowd and anyone making the "Grand Tour".
