The Krutarian Clade
The Holy Krutarian Territories
|Definition:||Theocracy with restricted affiliation to the NoCoZo.|
|Symbol:||A golden silhouette of a squid above a glowing sphere of blue and green light.|
|Ruling Toposophic:||Krutarkilush the Holy.|
|Population:||1.695 trillion dispersed as follows:|
1.3 trillion within their home system of Ika Gokuraku
330 billion within other Krutarian controlled systems
65 billion within other Terragen polities (this number remains low due to restrictions on Krutarian emigration enforced by other polities)
|Standard Tech Level:||High Tech|
|Psyche, Art, Culture:||Metapsychology: Clan like society that ultimately obeys Krutarkilush the Holy their god-messiah. In smaller social groups pure physical strength, intellectual cunning or both often establish rank.|
Metaethics: Desire to increase the toposophic level of Krutarkilush. Individual Krutarians will always attempt to impose their will on others, an act that has led to conflict in the past. Large scale totalitarianism is not unusual, a side effect caused by individual members of the clade attempting to maintain their personal power and the highest positions close to their god.
Culture and Art: As dictated by Krutarkilush.
Languages: A tonal version of Anglish modified to use only the letters a, d, g, h, i, k, n, o, r, s, t and u.
|Government and Administration||Individual Polities: The Holy Krutarian Territories|
Government Type: Clan based theocracy.
Constitution: None (The word of Krutarkilush is the law)
Legal System: Flexible retributive justice - Elimination is a fairly common form of retribution. Within smaller groups extra-judicial execution is practiced when deemed necessary. NOTE: In many other Terragen societies this would be considered a crime.
Sophont Rights: Officially the Krutarians recognize the Universal Bill of Sentient Rights. Unofficially Krutarkilush has little interest in such things. Krutarian security forces are technically responsible for their enforcement, although a lack of interest and low levels of corruption means they rarely do so. (NOTE: Officials demonstrating too much self-interest, i.e corruption, are often eliminated by direct order of Krutarkilush.)
|Economics, Local Infrastructure||Economy: Krutarkilush owns everything. Resources are allotted to the clans for stewardship. Economic endeavors are usually directed towards the toposophic development of Krutarkilush.|
Resource Base: The Krutarians currently control 92 star systems. Most are barren / uninhabited, all are targeted for exploitation.
Megastructures: One known partial dyson swarm around M-class star in Economic Development System 25, also referred to as EDS-25.
Stargate Nexus: Unable to generate wormholes locally. Other polities restrict emigration of Krutarians to their territory due to their reputation for conflict. A single wormhole connection exists from EDS-1 to NoCoZo.
Beamrider Network: Intra-Krutarian beam network connects all primary systems.
Military Expenditure: The Krutarian security force has moderate expenditure second only to toposophic development of Krutarkilush.
Trade and Good Relations: NoCoZo maintains trading relationship although contracts are very carefully designed to avoid what has been politely termed Krutarian misinterpretation.
Long Running Interstellar Disputes: None
|Sophont Travel:||Hazard Rating: 5.0 (Polity generally considered ahuman. Weak enforcement of the Universal Sentient Bill of Rights coupled with an aggressive local population makes travel dangerous.)|
Freedom of Movement For Outsiders: Krutarian security forces strictly control all foreign traffic. This is explained as being in the best interests of the visitor. Frequent misunderstandings with the local population can lead to extreme violence.
Environmental Requirements: Atmospheric contaminants and high gravity on most Krutarian worlds may force some visitors to take precautions.
