Aluez

Military

The Military is divided up into TEN sectors. Which follow as:

Warrant Officer corps - This division acts as a policing unit for the entire body of The Unity. Warrant officers are known to appear throughout The Unity in every shape, size, form, and division. They act as the watchdogs and guard dogs to the laws of The Unity, and keeps Internal Order in check. They report directly to The Party over sensitive manners.

The Corps - General foot soldiers of The Armed Forces. These are the backbone and most commonly seen soldier in TUS ranks. They are usually the wearers of the Black uniforms/gears and vary in jobs from as simple as Infantryman/woman, to as high up as Demolitions Expert or Saboteur.

S.A.D.A.R. - Marine Corps. No other information is known other than the presence of White(or grey) uniforms/gears.

Air Brigade - Airforce and Navy of The Unity, they are the ones that control anything from the fast landing craft that drops soldiers into combat, to as large as the gigantic, near 1000 meter long Dreadnoughts that are seen floating in the skies above the occupied cities. Currently no bigger than Sky Corvettes and Frigates, as well as Aerodynes.

Armor Division - If it's a tank, or any other ground vehicle, it is probably owned by this Division. They are responsible for - as their name suggests - all armor support for other forces on the ground.

Star Forces - Off world and orbital defense forces. Currently Discombobulated.

Elite Guard - Handpicked by The Party members, and the most deadly soldiers in the world. No one has ever encountered these soldiers in combat and lived to tell the tale. Their nickname is The Crusaders. It is rumored they have the ability to create pockets of psuedo-reality in order to gain a highly unfair advantage in combat over the enemy.

Information Bureau - Intelligence Division, which handles all interrogations of enemy agents, anti-terrorism activities within the boarders of The Unity, and Anti-Espionage tactics to keep FOREIGN powers from spying upon operations within their national boundaries. Historical records have shown that they have acted ruthlessly and effectively at their job, going as far as killing an entire clan of Wolves to keep the most guarded secrets from escaping to the world.

Citizen Preservation and Support Bureau (CPASB) - Not an ARMED sector of The Unity, even though some members do carry PDW's and Pistols for their own defense on the job. These people are Teachers, Political Engineers, Social workers, Scientists and so on and so forth. These people are also responsible for supporting events like the Olympics, and World Cup Soccer within the boarders of Unity.

The Cossacks - An independent rebel group that operates as a foreign legion to Aluez. It is fairly new and no information is available to the international community at this time.

Tourist Information

Points of Interest

Aluez Crash Site - The beginning of Aluez, and the ship they arrived on, as well as the centerpiece of the nation itself. The ship is said to still function, but many doubt it will ever reach space again.

The Undercity Construction Site - A plot of land that is being stripped of it's resources in a 10 mile circle to make way for the future of industrial development. The sector gives tours, but it is heavily guarded against unwanted guests.

Krozan Military Academy - The headquarters of Aluezian military, and the birthplace of every soldier that dare joins the Academy. The building itself is 7 stories tall, not counting underground facilities, and is 34,500 feet in area.

Krozan Transmitter Dish - A transmitter that was built to link up with satellites in orbit for internet access. At the center of Krozan Military Academy.

Krozan Launch Pad - A massive mile wide launch pad, that is a half mile deep with multiple levels and silos. This complex is part of an ENDGAME strategy just encase of a mass planetary cataclysm. Six ships are expected to be docked at this pad when completed.

New Moon Dance Club - One of the largest, and the most popular dance club in Aluez. Standing 3 stories tall with multiple dancefloors, DJ's, bars, and other features. It's theme changes nightly, how they do so is beyond anyones guess, but many suspect some sort of supernatural power behind the club itself… and why people keep coming back for more.

Naria Tournament Dome - A football stadium sized building specifically built to house Naria tournaments. The stadium can support up to 15 versus 15 matches, with a play area the size of 7 football fields, and can house 85,000 people easy.

Race Tracks - Several race tracks are scattered about the nation, and rope in several fans from local and abroad.

Dos and Don'ts

Do be polite and courteous - a smile and a friendly attitude goes a long way!

Don't refer to Chakats, Skunktaurs, and other Hermamorphic species as "it" or other neuter terms - They are referred to as Shi (or Sie, both pronounced Shay), or the possessive form Hir (pronounced like the German word Herr).

Do remember that Aluez is a Unity intended for even relations between Human and Non-Human species, and expect some differences in standards and amenity configuration based on that fact.

Do take the time to get to know the locals. Friendships can be easily made and last a long time. Don't stare or point at Taurs or other species, and don't discuss their sexuality with them unless they invite you to. After all, how would you feel to have your sexuality and bedroom habits the subject of public interest?

Do feel free to give the service staff a friendly hug in lieu of a tip for good service - tipping isn't generally practiced in Aluez due to the good wages paid to service people.

Don't mistake the friendly and affectionate nature of some species as an open invitation for sex, and don't assume every person who takes an interest in you wants to bed you. some species may be promiscuous, but they are also discriminating, just like other races.

Do keep an open mind, and refrain from judgmental comments about Aluez society until you have spent some reasonable time on-planet, as you would anywhere else.

Do take care if you are psychically active; The empathic abilities of some species have proven to include not only Chakat, but also other species. When you're unused to it, it might be disturbing to sense the emotional state of everyone you meet. A special headband is supplied to you if you request one, at no fee.

Immigration Opportunities

Immigrants are always welcomed, but are subject to schooling so they may understand the languages of the Unity better, the cultures, and laws of the Unity clearly. Many have been known to go through ten years or more of schooling to learn the languages and writing just to enter the country. Possible citizens go through fields of screening checks as well to make sure that they are not foreign problems the other countries are trying to put unto them (such as spies, or terrorists, or criminals).

Breeding Program

As the population of the colony needs to be hiked and raised, a breeding program was put into place for the citizens of the colony. 35 percent of the population has been roped into this program. Participants of this program wear a color coded collar at all times. The presence of this collar does NOT mean they are easy, and they are going to jump at you right off the bat. And the presence of this collar also restricts their interaction with foreign genetics code.
