The Dexus System
Solar Prime had become the centre of galactic control, all the habitable planets being turned over to civic functions and government. Venus and Jupiter remain dedicated Protected Geological Zones. Whilst the Human Council (most often simply refered to as The Council) claims to govern all humanity, in reality they share power with several large corporations, the most prominent of them being Horizon Industries. But even their combined power strains at the edges of habitable space, with local barons and clans taking control of their own area.
