Aramis Subsector

Map of Aramis subsector, c.1107 (image produced by the Galactic 2.4 program written by Jim Vassilakos)The Aramis subsector lies to coreward, studded with few worlds ot little use to the mainstream of trade and commerce; as a result, the major xboat links also pass this subsector by.

This overlooks the fact that the subsector is a major agricultural producer. The major market for this production, however, is outside the Imperium. Vargr tribes to coreward look upon the variety and quality of foodstuffs produced locally as highly desirable luxury goods. Aramis is often referred to as "the breadbasket of the Vargr", because of the tremendous quantity of agricultural exports traded into the Vargr Extents. Naturally, in times of war this makes the subsector a target for Vargr conquest. To glean counter-intelligence and divert this tendency, the Imperial Scout Service maintains several isolated bases for contact with Vargr trading missions.

Zila (2908) is an agricultural world with a far-flung reputation for wine; recent vintages have been noted throughout the Marches for their quality.

Pysadi (3008), on the other hand, is under a religious dictatorship which distains the production of alcohol in any form. Pysadian fruits, however, are of superb quality.

The Aramis subsector contains 26 worlds with a total population of 111.1 billion. The highest population level is A, at Junidy (3202); the highest tech level is D, at Lewis (3107).
