Gazetteer : Colchis

Colchis (OI-0406, B676898-9) was colonised from nearby New Home, and later from Amondiage. Many of the colonists from New Home were of Asian descent and followed the “Wheel of Life” religion. Strife between the French-speaking Catholics from Amondiage, English-speaking Calvinists from New Home and the Wheelies has tarnished Colchis’ history. Today, Colchis is an important, though underdeveloped world. There remain great differences between the world’s various communities.

There is much religious strife on Colchis. Christians are split between French-speaking Roman Catholics and English-speaking Calvinists. The small Wheelie minority is despised by both Christian communities.
Government Impersonal Bureaucracy.
The civil service runs the planet without reference to the wishes of the divided population. An elaborate set of multiple jurisdictions and assessment agencies ensure that government departments administer the law without regard for the wishes of the governed. Bureaucrats shown to be corrupt or partial are instantly dismissed, and often imprisoned.
This strange system was introduced in order to combat endemic corruption and factional bias.
