The Aarano-Fuskan Commonwealth
description: A galactic empire made up of 120 star sistems, with multiple vassals wich bring its absolute size to 380 sistems. The commonwealth capital planet is Vurl-łkra, the home of the emperor and ruling elite, wich is made up almost entirely of Humans.The Commonwealth is an empire, with emperor wielding great amount of power and rarely seeking approval of those beneath him (socially). The Commonwealth is accepting all races into its empire, but only Humans are given full citizenship- The right to hold positions of power, such as Planetary Administrators, or Admirals. Commonwealth has strong economy, wich relies heavily on vassals to pay their taxes in raw resources wich fuel the economy that specialises in manufacturing consumer goods and military hardware, both for the citizens of Commonwealth and for external trade. The factories are overseen by High ranking Human officials and factory owners, but the main workforce are slaves, wich are all Łebers- A dominant species in empire that no longer exists, but was once the rival of Aarano-Fuskan Commonwealth.
When Humans from Vurl-łkra Discovered FTL, a new age has dawned for them. In Aarano-Fuskan Commonwealths early years, Commonwealth wasnt a monarchy - it was a federation of republics who called themselves Nakro-Pangan Commonwealth (names of two largest republics). They werent aware that they werent alone in Space, and as a result, their ships were focused on Colonization and Cargo delivery, and were severely lacking in military capability. That all changed when They met Stemoid federation. The Stemoid Federation were their first neighbour, and they were mean. They immideatly declared war on The Commonwealth, and achived swift victory, taking most of their planets in the peace deal.Commonwealth were defeated in multiple wars, again and again, until they eventually collapsed into anarchy wich lasted 300 years. They were able to raise to Space age again, but this time their succesors named themselfs "The Republic" and launched an ambitious plan to build a grand fleet wich would let them reconquer their lost planets. Meanwhile the Stemoid Federation collapsed to infighting, wich led to "The Republic" reconquering their old territory and even expanding to Stemoid space . After multiple wars and promises, they vassalized the Stemoids, wich made The Republic one of the stronger regional powers. They eventually met new Races and Empires, discovered and colonized new planets and sistems, and expanded their armada. Then, 120 years after Stemoids kneeld, They rebeled against The Republic,
Causing long and costly civil war between The Republic and their Vassals, wich will last 40 years and be remembered as "1st uprising".the war resulted in republic victory, but at great cost. They decided to enslave every Łeber they found. The republic continued to expand and crush their neighbours for 30 years and then after a failed coup organised by the high ranking Admirals and Administrators, a new civil war broke out between The Republic and newely founded "Council of Masters". The war lasted for 5 years and ended when one of the "masters" betrayed the "council" in favour of Republic. Master was awarded with huge sums of money and influence for his actions, wich he later used to stage a more succesful coup, that killed every single high ranking member of The Republic except for the co-conspirators of that "master", whos real name was Venger. Venger reformed The Republic into The Aarano-Fuskan Commonwealth,named after the continents on Vurl-łkra wich were most strategically important for his plans, becoming first Emperor. he reigned for 20 years, before succumbling to unknown disease. after his death, his son Abram became the new Emperor. Under his rule, Aarano-Fuskan Commonwealth reached its peak of absolute size of 500 Sistems. He will be remembered as " Abram the Great". after his death, his daughter Malina became the Empress. She took away the citizenship form all who werent humans, resulting in empire-wide revolts wich secceded from the Commonwealth And formed "United Front" . Malina organised an unsuccesful campaign to destroy The Front wich led to complete destruction of her fleet and further loss of teritorry, reducing it to todays absolute size of 380 sistems. Malina was later asasinated by one of her more ambitious generals who would be discovered several weeks after the murder, resulting in his escape and new nickname "Welles the Traitor". he stole enough money to buy a mercenary fleet wich took a planet of Shabzi. He declared himself the "Divine ruler of Shabzi Emirate". He is
still expecting the Revenge of Aarano-Fuskan Commonwealth, cowaring in Shabzi, forming alliances with anyone who has a fleet, becoming an increasing annoyance to Emperor Namid, who became emperor after his big sister was killed. He is currently trying to build up his fleet, while at the same time supressing many Slave uprisings and pirate raids organized by Welles, and pleasing many of internal factions formed by Humans inside of Commonwealth, each with their own desires and ambitions.
While Aarano-Fuskan Commonwealth gives citizenship to Humans only, it doesnt forbid everyone, literally anyone, to form a faction. Factions are generally either supporting the Emperor, or are looking how to gain more power and influence by annoying him.
Here are some of more influential factions;
Loyal Citizenry Comitee: the oldest of all factions, this one supports the emperor the most, and encourages their members to do the same, and to encourage others to do the same.
Martial Group: one of older factions, and second in size , this faction is not opposing the Emperor, but it isnt against him either. This faction is concerned about internal security and readiness of Commonwealth armed forces to defend the Commonwealth. Most prominent members of this faction are renowned generals and admirals.
Equality League: this faction is most diverse one, made up mostly of slaves and non-citizen population. They are on verge of being declared illegal, for their open protests about slavery and incompetence of Emperor.
subfaction:Workers United Front: this is a sub faction of Equality League, pushing for communism and radical solutions. They are outlawed, but they are known for their pupularity among slaves, and this made them incredibly hard to locate and arrest, for the general populace is hiding them.
Progressive Council: While this faction doesnt have many supporters, ones that it does have are incredibly influntal and important. Their members are leading scientists, philosophers and some Planetary Administrators who push hard for innivating and adapting.
Aarano-Fuskan Commonwealth is famous for its experienced invasion armies and its fleet (especially before Empress Malina)
Armed forces are divided as follows, with their traditions and sub-divisions:
Ground forces: everything that is made specifically to maintain order, invade foreign planets or defend something , is considered to be a part of Ground forces. HIghest ranking Officers are; General feldmarshal,
Feldmarshal,Marshal and so on. Ground forcs use primarily laser built weapons (such as blaster rifles) butthey also use standard Kinetic powered rifles and explosives. sub-divisions; 1-garrison force (armies that defend planets, combined with local police), 2-Assault forces (armies and mercenaries that assault hostile planets, Assault force is more prestigious one of the two)
Fleet: everything made to supply, attack, deliver and defend something in vast space. High ranking officers:
Grand admiral (he commmands the entirety of Fleet) , Admiral (they command a sub division or a part of Fleet,
called "armada"). The Fleet is highly focused on fortresses and big , chunky flagships, wich might not always look nice, but always hit hard. they produce a large amount of cheaper fighters and corvetts that are made only to take the damage until flagships arrive, or to protect against pirates. When Fleet attacks and occupies a sistem, it follows this protocol: "Hunt down any remaining hostiles and build a Fortress (AKA starhold, Starbase, CItadel, etc.) after construction of said fortresses is finished enough for them to be self sustainable and capable of eliminating enemies in large enough quantities and good qualities, suitable amount of corvettes is left behind to assist in defence of the sistem (...) Then any damaged ships will be repaired at the said Fortress, before regrouping together and advcancing further into enemy teritory. (...)". Fleet uses balanced amount of energy based weapons, together with Kinetic canons or Missles. Standard Commonwealth ships are often described as
"Glass cannons" beacouse they are not made to withstand a lot of damage, and dont tipically use armor, they instead focus ony on dealing as much damage as possible (some proud citizens also say "glass Nuke")
The situation today:
with Aarano-Fuskan Commonwealth running out of uncolonised space to expand to, and with relativly unstable internal balance of power and politics, it must use its Fleet as best as it can in order to survive ever increasing amount of
alliances and mercenaries "Wells the Traitor, the divine ruler of Shabzi emirate" has assembled to the south of Commonwealth.With weakened but still determined United front to the east, wich is steadily preparing against possible agression from Commonwealth. And with their remaining vassals to the west and north, acting as a buffer zone between Commonwealth and and rest of the galaxy, but also blocking it from expanding in those directions, What could happen next? It is something we might found out...
