Culture: Infereti were completely focused on their military and had a male dominated caste system in which woman were kept under close watch and had very specific roles.

The Military training in Infereti culture took precedence over that of anything else. The Infereti were inspected at the age of ten by the committee of elders chosen by the king and if deemed to weak to serve his highness they would be cast out into the role as slaves or thrown into a mine to work the rest of their days away. Those that were not cast out or chosen to serve were then forced into military training and academies which they attended for two decades before actually taking up military service or thrown into a branch of military. Due to such the Caste system worked to be ranged from Slaves to Woman to Merchants to Warriors to Officer to Nobles to the King. Note the Queen is actually at an authority level of that of a normal female in their society and has no special rank.

Food and other essential resources were rationed and kept under heavy watch and control by the Infereti leadership. This forced children to risk their lives to steal for an extra bit of food to keep them going, this was actually a test for the children of the society to recognize those who were cunning enough, quick enough, or skilled enough to steal successfully from the store foods and to late plant them into a special intelligence sector of the hierarchy. Those who are caught are publicly whipped in the cities central plaza, these events draw a crowd normally due to the fact that there can be something learned from the failure of one.

Although Infereti girls did not go through formal military training, they were educated in the use of weapons and other tasks that would be useful around ones home. As such any academic knowledge was minimal to females and special papers were needed for woman to venture out alone in the streets, much less carry a weapon. A female with a weapon without proper papers was thrown into the mines immediately, or detained and taken as a slave for the king.

No Infereti was free to live as he wished in their society or cities. Their cities are like a giant military camp in which constant patrols and strict curfew and laws. If a Infereti was not assigned a duty at the time, the man would watch his son and teach them something useful, or they would learn themselves from the elders.​

Technology: Infereti Tech is at a Neo-Earth Level status, the best and fastest way to put it is, take current earth tech and add on three hundred years. Now, i do recognize this will need a better breakdown... your about to regret wanting one.

Transportation:
Transportation on Infereti is very much like in the rest of the known galaxy where hover capabilities and repulsorlifts are common among Infereti life. Their public vehicles utilize it to cover the vast militaristic cities. They still utilize Naval ships and trains as well due to the cheaper construction of them as even though repulsor tech is common its massively expensive. Most of the highly over priced revenue made from the purchase of the tech is sent directly to the king's coffers for him to do with which he pleased. Planes and more commonly used Zeppelins are common place as well, the Zeppelins being used more due to their slowness and the ability for the Infereti for once to rest compared to their normal lives. Though this also means they are a lot more expensive then a plane ride by a factor of five. Space travel to other systems is virtually impossible as Hyperdrive tech is not known to them and as such they are only able to travel from place to place through Ion engine capabilities and nucular powered engines.

Weaponry:
The weaponry of the Infereti is a mixture of both Ionized energy and the physical kinetic energy akin to rail-guns and that of inertia powered weaponry. Their weaponry is varied and created as to encompass a wide variety of of threats that are found in different environments throughout their solar system and incidentally when found throughout the known galaxy. These constant improvements are due to almost every day revolutionary movements and internal strife that is like stealing encouraged. But the reason for this is much darker than that of the stealing, the king sends out his own agents to stir up those disloyal to the crown and as such creates a state of perpetual revolution that he can test his newest weapons on and remove anything he finds, unsavory.

The breakdown of the types of weaponry in the Infereti arsenal include both vehicles and weapons themselves.

Small Arms: Small arms encompass a number of engagement areas but are generally for close quarters combat and quick or silent infiltrations. These weapons are used generally as a last resort or for concealment to allow for assassination. Said arms include.

-Daggers
-Thrown Weapons
-SMGs
-Pistols.

Medium Arms: Medium arms are the most common you would see on the battle field as they encompass both large scale melee engagement and ranged engagement akin to the battles used in the dominion of other nations. As such these weapons are common place in Infereti homes and battle grounds and as result have also undergone some of the most large scale improvement projects.

-Energy blades
-Long Bows/Composite Bows with Ionized Arrows
-Scatterguns
-Assualt Rifles
-Shields
-Spears

Heavy Arms: Heavy weapons encompass those skilled with the use of a specialized weapon or for those that use... well heavy weapons. Encompassing things that would be used to over power or take down the enemy from an extended distance these weapons rely on stopping power.

-LMGs
-Sniper Rifles
-Rocket/Grenade launchers
-Broad Swords
-Halberds
-Battle Axes

Light Vehicles: These are light and quick vehicles used by the Inferetes to get them from place to place quickly in the event of a battle.

-APTT(Anti Personnel Troop Transport)
-ATAV(All Terrain Assault Vehicle)
-AASC(Amphibiasus Assault strike craft)
-ATSW(All Terrain Scout Walker)

Heavy Vehicles: Heavier, both weight and weapon caliber. Used in prolonged battles or against strongholds.

-ATHW(All Terrain Heavy Walker)
-Artilliary Batteries
-HAT(HEavy assault Tank)
-LST(Light Strike Tank)

Drones/Droids: Completely unmanned and programed by unique software unseen before in the star wars universe(Yes, i will be adding USB ports to these guys:D) These droids are new to the field of battle and as such can deliver nasty surprises that are to be unexpected.

-UAVs(Unmanned Aerial Vehicle)
-AUAV(Assualt Unmanned Aerial Vehicle)
-ULVs(Unmanned Land Vehicle)
-AULVs(Assualt Unmanned Land Vehicle)
-LBDs(Light Battle Drone)
-HWDs(Heave War Droid)

Air/Space: The Air and Space craft of the Infereti are one in the same, every ship in their arsenal is made to operate in both atmospheric and space combat giving them an edge when assaulting other planets. Due to this though and the fact that they lack the capabilities of leaving the Solar System they call home currently their largest ship is only a thousand meters and is held for Royal use alone.

-Fighters
-Bombers
-Stealth craft
-Carriers
-Destroyers
-Frigates
-Cruisers
-Etc.​
Economic and Public Works Tech: The use of precious metals as coins is the current system of trade and economics on the planet, this is akin to what you would expect of roman level economics where bartering and monetary trade. Public works structures are more like that of today rather than the norm in Star Wars, where the cities are on the ground floor and they still use actual roads to travel upon instead of skylanes. As such they have a driving code that would seem highly strange to that of anyone else in the the Star Wars universe. Basically take New York City and make it futuristic looking and you got their normal city. Telephones are as well still used due to holographic communications being massively expensive.​
History:​
Circa 25,000 BBY: Corellian Explorer craft Genesis activate Hyperdrive and heads out into the unknown galaxy, after an extended amount of time the Corellians arrive in the Inf-1 Star System but come out too close to the Planet and are pulled into the gravity before they are able to pull out of it. This was due to a malfunction in the Hyperdrive which was common for this era and had actually knocked out the engines with it causing the crash. The Exact date of the crash is unknown.

Circa 24,000 BBY: A Thousand years after the crash the survives have constructed their own society after failing to fix the Hyperdrive due the inability and lack of needed resources or tools. Forced to resort to absolute base tools available the survivors have been reduced to what would be considered neolithic tools. Though the use of Galactic Basic was still used by them and thus allowed for it to be passed down from generation to generation.

Circa 20,000 BBY: The Infereti, as they are calling themselves now are beginning to evolve to better fit their environment, becoming leaner, paler, and attaining darker hair. Their eyes have all turned Blue or Silver as a further result and furthermore they have begun to develop their own culture. The Caste System has begun as the population was on a steady increase and groups formed into tribes with different territories. Tribal warfare has broken out but large scale deaths or war have not arose.

Circa 19,950 BBY: The death of a tribal prince during a raid has caused a massive war between two tribes and their allies, the deaths number in the thousands of a population of only Thirty thousand at the time. Effectively solidifying the use of slaves after the fact and a dynastic rule of several kings in constant war for supremacy. Around this time one group in particular, a heavily militaristic tribe began to undergo heavy change and began subjugating its female members to what would become their place for the next twenty thousand years.

Circa 15,000 BBY: Around this time the official religion of the Infereti as a whole was created. Their gods were five entities, War, Death, Life, Earth, and the Sky. These five deities would become the Infereti's prominent gods and also be used in future wars and crusades as a reason so subjugate others and cause widespread destruction. Also around this date a faction of Amazonian like female warriors rose up and created a kingdom that rivaled the male dominated ones, threatening the caste system that had become widely used.

Circa 12,500 BBY: The Amazonian like kingdom falls to a united army of the male dominated caste system nations. Its females are all but turned into slaves and concubines and those that escaped resided in small tribes in the thick forests that covered the planet. Those that were turned into slaves would further expand the slave caste system and due to the utter destruction of female power on the planet the fate of those in the male dominated nations were sealed.

Circa 10,000 BBY: The Infereti's most prominent king orders a crusade upon the other nations on the planet and as such cause a scar of widespread destruction across many cities and ends up doubling the size of his empire before being halted by a collection of lesser nations. Around this time the first powder powered ranged weaponry is created, due to this the death toll grows once more and several thousand die in the King's test on a disloyal city. After its destruction he turns the weapons on his enemy and begin a new push.

Circa 7,500 BBY: The last free Nation void of the caste system is held up in its city, and the first use of a nucular bomb is recorded by printed writing. The death toll was said to be nearly twenty three million by the end then anyone or anything that survived the genocidal bomb was systematically exterminated and removed from Infereti society. With the city's destruction the King assumes complete control over the Infereti people and creates a dynasty that is still in control today.

Circa 5,000 BBY: The creation of the first space craft is accomplished and the exploration of the moons begin, the practice of inciting rebellions also begins and is done to test out new weapons against those who are not loyal to the Infereti.

Circa 1000 BBY: The dynasty begins to create massive bases on the other planets in the solar system and on their moons, to which are both created for the purposes of mining valuable and needed resources while also using them to again incite rebellions and test out new space weapons. As such this creates the trend that would happen for the next thousand and eight hundred years.

Circa 400-836 ABY: While the rest of the Galaxy dies off due to the Gulag plague, the Infereti experience a golden age due to their forced isolation. As such their technology is able to progress to the point that it now rivals that of the rest of the galaxy even without ever coming in contact with them.

Intent: The Intent in making this is for three reason that i plan to try and set in motion. First there is the fact that i am doing this as a personal character arc for my character Alexandra in which she and several others will make first contact with this new world and people. It will allow for some interesting story telling and perhaps the creation of a new Major faction. The next reason is for a Neutral area that can be influenced by those nearby and companies. Its suppose to be a literal good versus evil campaign for players and allow for me to do a little bit of story telling to add a Earth like planet and Neo-Earth tech to the Star Wars universe. Lastly, its an experiment. As i said above i want to do something new and interesting and create an enticing civilization and storyline for those that are stranded initially and then once they are rescued a place where the arrivals can have an influence on a new planet without dominioning it.​

I'm not sure if we're in reach of the Mid Rim, but I'm not the best at reading the map. Technology and it's divisions are cool, but your initial statement seems hostile, some of the section just seem to be listing tech, and unmanned stuff would require a tech sub and a 1000 word+ thesis IIRC.

My biggest concern, and I'll admit it's early so I'm probably missing something, is technology. Where does it come from? With a society that throw every man in the military, slavery, or the mines there doesn't seem to be a way for people to actually study and develop tech as I can find any mention of scientists or engineers or any similar equivalent. Also, as it stands this planet would likely be ignored by the Sanctum. With freedom as their most important value and this society being extremely dependant and encouraging of slavery they'd never get along, not to mention with the huge military presence they'd likely be seen as expansionist, which the Levantines were formed to get away from. Now that's cool if you don't want the planet joining, but the Levantine's wouldn't negotiate with them unless their current system of government collapsed.

Nope, accepted.

1. I am aping for the tech slowly as it would be introduced, so ya. Only the basic weaponry that the original arrivals would be accustom to would be used and as the original arrivals explored then the Tech would be introduced as its added in.

2. "With a society that throw every man in the military, slavery, or the mines there doesn't seem to be a way for people to actually study and develop tech as I can find any mention of scientists or engineers or any similar equivalent." So this raises the simple question of, in our modern society are there not Technologies developed by the military themselves which eventually make their way to current use. The answer to this is yes.

3. "Also, as it stands this planet would likely be ignored by the Sanctum. With freedom as their most important value and this society being extremely dependant and encouraging of slavery they'd never get along, not to mention with the huge military presence they'd likely be seen as expansionist, which the Levantines were formed to get away from. Now that's cool if you don't want the planet joining, but the Levantine's wouldn't negotiate with them unless their current system of government collapsed." And thus, you have hit the original Intent for creation of this world on the nose. My character, the case and point Notable PC, has a different view and it is him that the arrivals would come in contact with. Like the Intent says, this would not be a world that would simply just right out of the back have a Dominion, as stated in the thing it is a world that is simply unknown for the large part. Thus is why its being in the outer rim justifies such a difference in Tech and other such things as Slavery. As for the Expansionist part, a military culture does not always mean they will be conquerors. In Star Wars you have such examples as the Echani, and in history you have such cultures as the Amazon Sisters, The City state of Sparta, Gaulic and Germanic Tribal groups, and the Israelite civilization.

In anycase I'd recommend removing energy swords. The only energy swords available in SW(I am aware of) are lightsabers, which require the Force or some other form of enhancement in order to have the senses and balance required to properly use one.

The (US at least) Military contract out a ton of their work(Has worked in Huntsville AL, and DC), and even the work they do isn't done by soldiers, it's done by people hired specifically to serve as engineers and weapons designers. The wording in your article

The Military training in Infereti culture took precedence over that of anything else. The Infereti were inspected at the age of ten by the committee of elders chosen by the king and if deemed to weak to serve his highness they would be cast out into the role as slaves or thrown into a mine to work the rest of their days away. Those that were not cast out or chosen to serve were then forced into military training and academies which they attended for two decades before actually taking up military service or thrown into a branch of militay.
Says that everyone takes military training before going into military service. No military I am aware of trains their people to be soldiers, then sends them into military service, and weapons and technology designs just happen along the way. They get men trained specifically for the purpose of building and understanding things threw very different coursework and training. A society that works as you have it currently described has no method of building technology because no manpower is put into it. "Military Service" is people who are soldiers and officers, not the people who do trade or development for the military.

This was a warning and you seem to understand the implications here.

As for the Expansionist part, a military culture does not always mean they will be conquerors. In Star Wars you have such examples as the Echani, and in history you have such cultures as the Amazon Sisters, The City state of Sparta, Gaulic and Germanic Tribal groups, and the Israelite civilization.
The Amazon Sisters are derived from a legend of an Island called Lesbos that was rumored to be solely inhabited by women. Sparta conquered lots of people and enslaved them to form their working class. Gaulic and Germanic tribal groups went to war. The Israelites conquered many nations, with the Bible as well as various other historical sources detailing many wars they went through. The Echani aren't represented as a nation well enough in Canon to make a a true basis on whether or not their expansionist or not. All of your examples are wrong, but it doesn't even matter. What matters is perception. People don't act on what's true or not true, they act on what they think and what they know.
For example, after WWI Germany faced -incredible- inflation, where people would literally fill a wheelbarrow up with money to buy a loaf of bread, maybe two. Because of this, along with other reasons, Germany went into a huge depression. Several Jewish businessmen were able to keep afloat, albeit with losses, but still weathered the storm while thousands of others, the 'common man' so to speak could not. This eventually lead to the Jewish Community becoming a scapegoat for Germany, with a bright young and persuasive Nazi convincing the nation that their depression and their losses were not their fault, but the fault of the rich Jewish Businessman. It didn't matter whether or not it was true it mattered that Germany wanted someone to blame, and it lead to the Holocaust. In the wake of titans like the Omega Protectorate offering their 'protection' but ruthlessly expanding, the Sith Empire being the Sith Empire, and a Republic that claims to be the good guys attacking worlds they had non-aggression pacts with for no apparent reason every military culture is going to be seen as a possible expansionist power.

1: "In anycase I'd recommend removing energy swords. The only energy swords available in SW(I am aware of) are lightsabers, which require the Force or some other form of enhancement in order to have the senses and balance required to properly use one." Ionized Energy. Its Based metal blades with Ionized packs that can be channeled through the blade, such weapons are in current process of being aped as this is posted.

2: "Says that everyone takes military training before going into military service. No military I am aware of trains their people to be soldiers, then sends them into military service, and weapons and technology designs just happen along the way.

A society that works as you have it currently described has no method of building technology because no manpower is put into it. "Military Service" is people who are soldiers and officers, not the people who do trade or development for the military." Being thrown into a branch include that of a Part time group like the national guard. Also there is the fact that in the culture area i mention a merchant caste area and i realize that i can further the depth of the society so thank you for pointing out my mishap.

3.
"The Amazon Sisters are derived from a legend of an Island called Lesbos that was rumored to be solely inhabited by women. Sparta conquered lots of people and enslaved them to form their working class. Gaulic and Germanic tribal groups went to war.

What matters is perception. People don't act on what's true or not true, they act on what they think and what they know." Sparta was the only one i mentioned that were truly Expansionists, the Israelites reclaimed theirs and the others were always in war but were not expansionists. With that the history is done and your point is true. But as for things on a whole, the overall this was to be originally be made as a contested piece of space, with the end of the Sith Empire i was trying to figure out where to push this planet towards. So my intent was to push it towards the Pubs or, now that they have been alittle expansionist for my taste. As such i planned to give us some RP and story in which such a society is changed.

As a final point i revisit the Tech problem, note that due to the militaristic society, they dont have hyperdrives and still use Zepplins and what not. Basically, while they've achieved some technological marvels, they are still highly under developed. Heck they cant even leave their solar system. Yes there are a number of Scientists and other such people, like farmers and merchants, but the vast majority either remains in the military or are in slavery. I thank you for your points and such has given me a chance to further the detail of my planet submission for when i do resubmit it

Wouldn't Zepplins be horribly outdated and leaning towards Steampunk rather than Star Wars? There are tons of low tech atmospheric transport examples on Wookiepedia, a number of them crude from from say the Clone Wars era. This far into the timeline it would be ancient technology and thus I think old enough for your planet.

Just my two cents.

Again, this civilization is not nearly as advanced as the rest of the SW Universe, nor is it advanced in the same way as the SW Universe. It was an Isolationed world with the inability to create a hyperdrive and as such knows nothing about what lies out there. Plus, the use of Zeppelins i thought would be cool even if its not used as much anymore, it was a way to travel great distances by air without being couped up in a chair the entire time. Dont forget this as well, planes on this world are also used to travel great distances and such and the cars, while they use repluser tech, very few have such a vehicle due to money.

They are also a militaristic society, so civil projects that would make the use of these repulsor lift vehicles common use doesnt really go on. They focus more on Warfare, which ironically they have no one to really fight other than themselves. Which leaves them very little room for advances in other areas.
