Jewell Subsector

Map of Jewell subsector, c.1107 (image produced by the Galactic 2.4 program written by Jim Vassilakos)The Jewell subsector is fragmented into three distinct areas: an Imperial region answering to the duke at Regina ( Regina / Spinward Marches 1910), a Zhodani military district under the Cronor subsector establishment, and a mutually agreed-upon neutral zone open to both sides, but theoretically demilitarized.

The Jewell cluster of worlds is heavily fortified, and boasts a large contingent of Imperial troops as well as naval and scout forces. Similarly, the Zhodani-controlled communications link ( Chwistyoch - Clan - Farreach) has seen heavy military construction in the decades since the Fourth Frontier War.

Esalin is an unusual world in this divided subsector; originally settled by Imperial colonists in 835, it fell to Zhodani advances in 1082. Its value as an agricultural world, however, led the Zhodani to tolerate the human presence. In the years since, the world has been the site of increased cooperation between the races. Esalin has been declared a neutral world in a joint communique (1098) by the Imperial and Zhodani governments.

The Jewel subsector contains 23 worlds with a total population of 21.12 billion. The highest population level is A, at Riverland and Louzy ; the highest tech level is C (TL 12), at Jewell .
