Have you ever been to Arkadia?  They were real powerful back in the old days, then the Ennead blew them away.  Now they have the most unique world I’ve ever been to.  Imagine a cloud of gas wrapped around a star.  The real estate’s cheap.  Drop an asteroid in solar orbit, plant a flag, and take a deep breath of fresh air.  Smells like freedom.  And a bit of solar wind.
