History of the Organization: Throne is an unaligned Orion world in the Kliges'chee Implosion Zone. They are just getting back on their feet after managing to fake out the Kliges'chee in the wake of the Sharidin Kliges'chee war. They hid their technology for hundreds of years and bid their time. Throne had been in fact one of the worlds of the Sharidin Empire. That conquest did them a favor even if they at the time did not realize it. The Sharidin abolished slavery.
Yes at the time the uproar and end of civilization predictions were rampant, but the overlords were firm, no slaves. By the time of the Sharidin fall it was the normal of everyone's lifetime even if Greens didn't enjoy de facto equal rights and opportunities. With the lost of the Empire and space flight the Greens fought hard to maintain the new status quo. There was kickback and at least one civil war. But universal freedom remained the rule of law, and gradually the Green situation improved.
Currently the Green are at a slight disadvantage in society, but the days of pogroms and lynchings are long over. It is a sub-culture in main society and yes it has lost some the unique Greenness found elsewhere.
Throne has moved into the Federation sphere. With other larger political unit turning up, like the Hiver Federation, the UFP looked like a good place to be. They anchor the spionward side of the 700 range starbases and are the deepest penetration into the Implosion Zone
They are currently building a space base at a fever pitch. They are desperate to catch up to the rest of the Federation. With the good grace of Mister Star they are exploring the class M world in his system.
