Government: Lorac is ruled in conjunction with its twin planet, Loric. The two planets are ruled by a representative from each planet, called Consuls. However, each planet also has a separate Senate that the decisions must pass through. Because of this division where some decisions pass on one planet but not on the other, and due to a general lack of strong authority, neither planet is especially strong in interplanetary affairs.

Terroria

Major Cities: Terroria has no real distinctions between cities. It has basically just grown into one gigantic, sprawling, disorganized city.

Geographic Features: Gigantic city, broken street-lamps, slums, alleys

Resources: None to speak of (unless you count crime)

Government: Fenixa is constantly torn by wars and skirmishes between the various gangs and political-military organizations that stalk the planet, leaving it in a state of near anarchy. The only city spared from this is the capital city, Fenixa, which is protected by guard walls, defenses, and a private army. The governor of the City of Fenixa has considerable power on the planet, but the planet's official ruler is constantly changing and is usually nothing more than the leader of the largest biker gang.

Current Ruler: "Imperator" Kavik dor Fenixa of the Rising Phoenix gang
Current Governor of the City of Fenixa: Malavin dor Fenixa

Government: The planet of Sphere is divided into 500 sectors, each with 1 representative sent to the government. Among that government, the members vote for a Prime-Minister. The Prime-Minister then selects 23 ministers, and it is these ministers that wield the true power of Sphere. Sphere has 23 ministeries. These are: Economics, Military, Foreign Affairs, Industrial, Agricultural, Education, Security, Exports, Science, Solar, Asteroid, Transport, Public Relations, Architectural, Communications, Imports, Energy, Environmental, SRC (Spheran Revenue Control), Refineries, Management (storage), Religion, Government Reports (spies on other ministries)

Government: Warchor is ruled by the Khane-Moross (Lord of Death) whose power is absolute. The Khane is chosen by the traditional "Ildiad" or Trial. The Militant Council, composed of Warchor's top soldiers and strategists, advises the Khane, but they have no real power.
