Anhur is a small, cold rock with little more than a trace atmosphere and virtually no water or ice on its surface. Its 40 million inhabitants are governed by a harsh, totalitarian World Council, and visitors are advised extreme caution due to the oppressive local environment.
Originally established as a government complex hundreds of years ago as the Federation began to settle the sector, Anhur believes it must re-forge the Federation anew, by conquest and force if necessary, and the world has built a sizeable fleet. A number of nearby worlds have fallen under its rule. Of course the rampant corruption and greed in the Council ensure that these worlds have received little benefit and remain technologically underdeveloped.
