The Core, or Central Planets as they’re also known, are a wonderland of peace and technology. All citizens have enough to eat. They lead comfortable lives, with time and leisure to spend with their families. Children all have access to the best quality schools. People work in glistening skyscrapers and live in high-rise apartment buildings. The grass is green and the skies are clear and no one wants for anything. They have found the peaceful, prosperous existence that mankind has been seeking since he left the Garden of Eden. If they have to trade away some of their freedom to get this, they would tell you it was worth it.
The Anglo-Sino Alliance is based in the Core, governing the entire ‘Verse from the two first-settled planets, Londinium and Sihnon (where the “Anglo” and “Sino” come from). The Alliance is wealthy and powerful, with resources that most folk can’t begin to imagine-manpower, intelligence-gathering, military might, and technological innovation.
