Manak Cuzi was a Hardhi military officer and then politician who ascended to the throne during the Glorious Regeneration, of which he was the main architect. He ruled Hardhiara as its Equiveprim for 42 years, from 1949 until his death of old age in 1991. He has since then been given the posthumous title of "Eternal Equiveprim" as the cult of personality surrounding him continues to this day. His long rule was characterized by dictatorial practices and reactionary policies that reversed most of the reforms and modifications brought about by his predecessors. He notably brought back the Decimal Administration, nationalized most of the country's industrial sectors, enacted country-wide land reforms, led the rapid industrialization of the country through the use of economic planning, and ended democracy.

Gaia is a planet in the Ilios system home to all human life. Gaia is called the Allamokhullahaz, the graveyard of empires, She of the Seven Spires, Mother of Kings, Daughter of the White Sun, Seat of Dytika, and Song of Morning. Once, it was thought that the world was going to be consumed, steadily, by the growth of great empires – such as Cornicae, Hallania, and the Hierophany – were destined to divide the world between as humanity moved toward the ecumen, a view promoted rigorously by those states. The clashes of the Continental War and later, the economic decline of even the winning states of that conflict, permanently shattered the imperial view of society. Rising in the west and east, new collectivist powers such as Arlyon, the Hallanic Commonwealth, and the Erdaran Union, have begun to smoother the squalid embers of the imperial dream on the continent.

As multi-member collaborative project, the region is looking for prospective members who are willing to work not just on their own nations, but parts of the in-character world that transcend borders on the map. Religion, language, society, and former empires are just some examples of opportunities for creative collaboration.
