Skirling is a three system interstellar polity in Nembu Subsector. The homeworld, Skirl, is Tech B although that is minimally supported by local infrastructure, relying on trade from the X-Boat route to Agathai Sector. The Skirling have acquired a pocket navy in exchange for anti-piracy contracts and open borders with Coality Guild traffic.

The homeworld Skirl has a thriving industrial and stellar economy. Frije and Hueng are colony worlds with low but growing population, whose existence is entirely to support basic naval supply and accommodation.

Genetics and Culture

The Skirling are a human subspecies unique to the Skirl systems. Skirling differ from standard Humanity in two key ways:

  1. The population is hermaphroditic (89%, with 9% female, 2% male or sterile)
  2. Their skin, eyes, lungs, and blood have adapted to chlorine and other impurities of the Skirl atmosphere, probably by direct genetic engineering

The Skirling are slight and short in appearance, with mottled skin tones ranging from light yellow-brown to a deep reddish purple. The patterns of color are known as 'skirl', from which the system and its people get their name.

Their government, formally known as the Skirling Publicana, is a long-standing aristocracy atop a well-functioning and liberal bureaucracy. Crime is nonexistent, and organized political dissent is rare. Recently, however, Skirl's industrial wealth has made its government invest in defense forces. Its small navy has recently colonized two uninhabited neighboring systems.

Skirling are strongly racially biased but otherwise open to trade and travel. Nearly all in the ruling caste are educated and speak Galantic.
