The native molluscoids of Naff'Lin, the Tymosh, live in neurosymbiosis with an eel-like creature. Their all-encompassing church promotes the belief that all sentient beings (and the economies that they generate) exist in a similar relationship with an otherworldly spirit known as the Invisible Tentacle. Contacting that spirit, which is most often attempted to win its favor in some material pursuit or another, is achieved through a series of complex rituals and investment decisions. The more financially advantageous those investments are to the Adherence, the greater the spiritual rapture... or so they say."

  71.         species_bio="Millions of years ago, a great ice age swept over the planet Grithor, erasing a thriving fungal ecosystem that had dominated its surface for eons. This gave several species of mammalians an evolutionary opportunity, and in time one of them came to dominate the planet and develop an industrial civilization. Their industry soon began to melt the ice, releasing ancient spores long ago trapped in the permafrost. Most were harmless, but one species of awoken fungi had a unique psychoactive effect on the population. The Amaranth first hijacked its victims' central nervous systems and drove them into a ravening zombie-like madness. Past a certain point of saturation, however, it began to unlock the nascent telepathic potential of its hosts, creating a networked consciousness of its own. Melding its own fundamental impulses with the baser instincts of its victims, the Efflorescence hungers greedily and insatiably for expansion. The total consumption of Grithor was completed swiftly, and the Amaranth may yet consume the entire galaxy."

Little has changed since then. They prefer such order, in fact, to the uncertainties of a more liberated existence. The Askaran Orthodoxy is a theocratic oligarchy that exercises nearly complete control over the physical and spiritual lives of its citizens. Most Askari believe that without such structure and unity, the soul and body are easily lost to misfortune and evil. Chattel slavery is commonplace in their space. On pain of exile (or worse, excommunication), citizens are subject to the fiat of their elders and local priests, and the wider community is subject to constant monitoring by the security apparatuses of the High Ministry. Above them all, the Supreme Orthodox Council creates law and rules on matters of state."

C'Thraan the Starhatched brought a new message of community and tolerance that echoed from the dusty slopes of Mount Yarakatancha to the shores of the Sour Seas. Various Z'chelian national leaders seized on his message in the years after his fabled ascension to the Astral Plane, promoting progressive reforms and ultimately giving birth to the Celestial Communion and the Armim Parliament at the core of its political system.

Post-war reforms established a federalized global government with both representative and privy councils under the leadership of the Emperor. To administer global affairs, ensure societal control, and drive economic prosperity, the crown established the Imperial Enterprise. The Enterprise is a massive nationalized corporation to which a sizeable percentage of the Raskenese population is indentured, many by their own choice. Terms of voluntary indenture last between five and fifty years, offer proportionate benefits upon completion, and typically involve less grueling and dangerous labor than 'punitive' or 'reformative' indenture.

Technology swiftly progressed, leading to increased contact and trade between Terra's great powers. Brutal conflicts with the Chinese and Indian empires over spheres of influence cost many lives, but did little to forestall the Roman Emperors' dominance of their  homeworld. By the industrial age, however, the power of the mercantile elector class within Rome's upper echelons grew to outstrip that of the Senate and even the Emperor himself. These old imperial institutions still exist in the Interstellar Age, but as mere figureheads. Deeply embedded within Terran science, industry, and finance, the Church holds the true reins of power. While the Emperor remains head of state, the highest ecclesiastic leader in Terran society, the Supreme Pontif, is its de facto ruler. This civilization of fortune-building priests controls an empire built on the backs of a billion slaves and now they aim to own the stars themselves."

Through the wormhole was the Deneb System and the Human-habitable moon Pyrrho. The corporate colony's first challenge was to create an entire economic infrastructure, from top to bottom, out of whole cloth. In doing so, they made the great leap from understanding wealth as currency to understanding wealth as energy, but the investment cost them their economic edge on the old homeworld. The board committed fully to Project Pyrrho, transferring all remaining assets to Deneb just before the collapse of the wormhole. But when, at last, the time comes for Liao-Nishanti to transition from megacorporation to galactic government, then the true genius of the their strategy may become apparent. Energy is the lifeblood of society, and when the chips are down, he who controls the energy supply will control the stars."

Even in an era of cheap and instantaneous telecommunications, the individual Phasgol may go years without contacting another sentient being. When such an encounter does come, a Phasgol must be ready. During periods of isolation, they build trinkets, compose poetry, practice jokes, and study the mystic arts of the memeways in the hopes of impressing a caller or visitor. If this fails, they may become frustrated and physically compel a guest to stay. Once trapped, their victims can expect a slow torture by endless rambling hyperbolic conversation and frantic attempts by the Phasgol to demonstrate their cultural savvy and social value.

They named it Miranda. There, the colonists quickly put into practice a brave new genetic engineering program to rapidly adapt to the alien planet. In the process, their society bifurcated. A small population of genetically superior lab-grown ('decanted') humans, calling themselves Mirandans, assumed leadership of the colony. Meanwhile, a rapidly reproducing population of genetically labotomized subhuman laborers, called Calibans, were tasked with the hard and dangerous frontier duties of colonial expansion. This experiment enabled the extremely rapid settlement of Miranda and a return to spaceflight within a century of their arrival, but its long-term societal costs can only be guessed at. Mirandans typically distinguish themselves from Calibans by wearing white, grey, or silver clothing."

As a result, they are an ideal labor class, toiling under harsh conditions that would make any of their Mirandan superiors wish for death. Calibans reproduce sexually, unlike their sterile Mirandan kin, and are particularly fertile by normal Human standards, often giving birth to twins.

At last Humanity was ready to accept life's fundamental truth: that life's only purpose is life itself. Learning to extend their awareness outward, beyond the self of body, to embrace the self of group and the self of Humanity, followers found sollace amid endless turmoil. This movement came to dominate Earth, where most now see the goals of the group and the wider species as transcendent, and believe embracing them is to achieve enlightenment.

An uneasy balance of power struck between equally vicious armies of thugs and thieves came to define life on the blasted hellscapes of Aki-Vas. Technological advance resumed, driven by internal competition for military advantage. When one cartel cracked the code of hyperspace travel, the others bowed before their superiority, and the Undjoon entered the galactic stage as a confederation of robber-barons under the command of a fearesome pirate king."

The UN Charter amendment of 2061 created the UN Parliamentary Assembly and Protectorate Council, followed in subsequent years by numerous other structural changes. The old Westphalian system was at last fatally undermined by the rise of this world government backed by the military might of emerging superpowers, Brazil and India. Continued administrative integration eventually led to the asymmetric federalization of all UN member states by 2150. In this scheme, off-world colonies are administered by various types of devolved governments under the oversight of the Protectorate until they can qualify for federal incorporation. Reliable FTL travel via hyperlanes and the prospect of interstellar colonization laid the foundation for the UN to evolve yet further into the United Systems Republic, a responsible representative government advancing the interests of Humanity on the galactic stage."

Their peculiar quantum-entagled neural fibers connect each organism to the whole and enable this concert of species to form a holobiont. Approximately 100,000 years ago, the D'chen biomass on its homeworld Ashtar crossed a critical threshold of biological computational bandwidth and manifested a collective consciousness. The more intelligent and articulate D'chen organisms sense this consciousness as a psychic wind, always drifting through their branches and leaves. At times of crisis, this wind becomes a mighty gale, and the D'chen sway and bend with the swirling thoughts of the aggregate mind. Though at times slow to react, once in motion, the Holobiont can mobilize vast material and mental resources to achieve its goals."
