Narrative:
Parked in the center of the only real communications route in the subsector, Diane is the most populous system in the subsector, with the busiest starport. Although home to billions, the world is resource poor, and nearly everything must be imported, even food. Diane is similar to 20th century Japan in that it is a manufacturing and consumer hub, but is not self sufficient in most raw materials.
While the government is officially a parliamentary democracy, in fact the bureaucrats run the government. Elected officials are effective (or not) at the pleasure of the invisible masses of high and mid level department heads. Navigating the local authorities is an exercise in patience and network building.
