The United Corporations of Innua is a governing body that unites a large number of sovreignty claiming Megacorporations and many small coporate interests into a single faction which controls most of the Innua region in western Delta space and chunks of neighboring regions. It is a Full Member of the Delta Pact Alliance and is one of the largest economic powers within the pact. A corporatocracy, the majority of Innuan culture and society is based around corporate philosophy with corporations being regarded as individuals, and individuals regarded as corporations. To the rules of the UCI, a single man and a multi million employee company have the same rights and responsibilities.


Arthian Colonisation

The UCI traces it's routes back to the planet Pariskan in the Tsetval system. The Innuan region, while well beyond the borders of the Arthian Empire, had been reached through a natural wormhole found linking a minor star system within the Cascade region and the Tsetval system. This wormhole was used to send gate contruction ships to Tsetval and the system was soon colonised by a large Arthian Exploration Corporation, which specialised in finding, and claiming new systems with valuable natural resources. Just under a decade after the colony's establishment the Heir Wars began. Within weeks the gate in Cascade had been destroyed in a battle between Corporate Military forces and the fleet of one of the heirs.

The Colony, which had flourished in the previous few years was almost entirely reliant on trade through the Worm gate for support. Three months after the gate was destroyed, food stocks had reached he point where the 5 million strong population of the system would be starving within a week. While the planet's had supported non-sentient animal and plant life when the Arthians discovered it, little headway had been made in cultivating crops on the planet's surface. The space station orbitting the planet, constructed for use by administration and construction staff during the development of the planet's infrastructure, was equipped with hydroponic greenhouses and was capable of producing enough food to feed it's population of 80,000. The Board of Directors of the Innua Colonisation Company were left with a difficult choice. They could harvest and distribute the food in the station's greenhouses and delay the food shortage by a few weeks or they could select 80,000 people to survive and leave the rest to die on the planet below. They chose the latter and cut off all ties to the surface.

Society on the planet soon collapsed, as it did on so many worlds abandoned by the imploding Arthian Empire. Starvation, disease and conflict tore through the small population and within a year, less than a 200,000 remained, scattered across the continent, living in forests and jungles; anywhere they could find food. Above, the denizens of the station watched with sorrow, but did nothing to help. They spent the nest three years, preparing to retake the planet and begin the long task of rebuilding their shattered colony. The battles that had raged between the abandoned peoples over the last food had left most of the towns and cities in ruins and the stationers set about salvaging what they could. They began construction of a new city in the remnants of the old capital and began to cultivate the wide plains of the continent on which it lay. Their attempts to re-establish contacts with the small number of survivors left on the planet were largely met with rage and violence, and the board of directors was forced to kill them in self defence.


Delta Pact Membership

The UCI joined the Delta Pact in GY-12-GA after many years of argument among it's member corporations. Eventually, the Chief Presidential Officer and the HC decided to overrule the CGC and signed the pact. This lead to a great schism in the faction and approximately a fifth of the Megacorporations with seats on CGC broke off to form the Innuan Union, which, while remaing a political and economic ally of the UCI, disagrees with it vehemently on many issues, particularly the war which joining the Delta Pact involved the UCI in.

Societal Structure

Every citizen of the UCI is officially a corporate entity and, at birth, is incorporated a such. 100% of the shares in the individual belong to their Parents or Guardian's Corporation. A large body of laws control what a parent or gaurdian, or the shareholders controlling them, are allowed to do with a child's corporation. Selling a child's shares or rights is illegal. Once an individual comes of age, their shares are returned to them and may be used as they see fit. The majority of the population retain control of at least 51% of their personal shares for their entire life, or until they marry, at which time they trade half of their shares for half of their partner's shares. Unlike most marriage systems in Arthian Descendant nations, both Polygamy and Bisexuality are fairly common within Innuan culture. While most Innuans have only one wife or husdand, it is not uncommon for a single person, male or female, to have multiple wives and husbands as well as own concubines and employ prostitutes(Innuans have an atypical attitude towards sex, and prostitution is a respected profession).

Owning shares in another person entitles one to a dividend of any income they receive and the right to votes in any major decisions made in that person's life. If the person owns less than 51% of their shares, it is possible for their shareholders to control their choices in decisions such as employment, residence and other important matters. Furthermore, all personal, civil and political rights can be sold to other corporations. While this system effectively legalises slavery, a host of rules govern the way in which a shareholder may treat a Personal Corporation which they have any control over. Any proven abuse of shareholder power results in all their shares being returned to the personal corporation and further punishment. The same applies in the opposite direction, and any individual refusing to agree to controlling shareholder's wishes, can be punished by the shareholders through an officially licensed Police Corporation. The same laws also apply to Non-Personal Corporations, which must bow to the wishes of majority shareholders.


The central governing body of the UCI is incredibly small for a faction of it's size and maintains no state owned military, police or other entities aside from a small guard force. Almost any actions which the body wishes to make are done by contracted corporations. Any corporation or individual wishing to live, travel and/or operate within UCI territory must be a member of the UCI, and pay membership fees, or be a legally recogonised company or citizen of an Allied Trading Partner, the majority of which are members of the DOI Trading Alliance. The 100 most wealthy companies in the Union each have a seat on the Corporate Governance Council in which most of the decisions of state are made. A second, smaller body, the High Commision, is ranked above the CGC and can also enact new rules and regulations. Both bodies have power to control and regulate the other, but the HC is ultimately more powerful. Of it's 12 members, 6 are elected by the CGC, and 6 by Union wide elections in which every living Personal Corporation is given a vote. The vote they cast is decided by the shareholders of the corporation and a corporation's right to vote can be given to another. Many corporations require their employees to give up their vote to access promotions above a certain level or to get a job at all. This leads to some large corporations wielding millions, even billions of votes. Although this potentially leads to a small group of corporations, or even a single corporation controlling the entire Union, the cut-throat nature of the Union's economy has so far meant that no single corporation has been able to gather enough votes to hold a majority.
