Olympus is a group of three large planetoids near the center of the planetary belt. The three planetoids are named Olympus, Urrish and Azmag. Most of Olympus' citizens are employed directly, or in support of, the shipyards. The remainder are involved in mining or mining support. The only major industries in the Olympus belt are connected with the ship yards and mining.
Olympus has long been under martial law administered by the Imperial Navy, now the Federation of Daibei Navy. The Military Governor, currently Baron Captain Travis Bartek, has supreme authority over all of the Olympus system. Civilians, appointed by the Military Governor serve as administrative and legal officials in the Olympus planetoids.
Azmag is the location for a small Federation of Daibei Naval base as well as both civilian and naval TL-14 shipyards. Access to Azmag is restricted to employees of the shipyards, naval personnel attached to the base, and authorized guests...generally, the owners and crew of ships being repaired or serviced.
Olympus, proper, has a population of approximately 600,000 (75% human, 15% aslan, 5% vargr, 3% virushi, 2% other), and is the home of the vast majority of sophents living in the Olympus system. Olympus is honeycombed with tunnels and caverns, most of which are maintained at a standard 1 g through gravity control. An efficient tube system connects the commercial, recreational and living nodes inside Olympus. There is regular shuttle service between Olympus and it's neighboring planetoids. The civilian Starport is located on Olympus.
Urrish is a location for most of the food production for the Olympus system. The surface of Urrish is covered with greenhouses, and many aquaculture and aeroculture chambers have been constructed inside Urrish. Urrish produces enough food to make the Olympus system nearly self-sufficient, however the quality and variety of the food produced here is poor. Visitors from other systems are very rarely allowed to visit Urrish.
The people of Olympus are progressive and friendly. They tend to be neutral in their views of Imperial politics, following whatever line the current Military Governor follows. A very common local fashion for Olympians is body tattooing, especially of the face. Most Olympians wear softsuits under their outer clothing at all times. These softsuits are covered with clan and class designs and patterns. Outer clothing and vacc suits also bear these clan and class patterns.
