Plying the Backwaters
The Zhodani Consulate
The Zhodani Consulate is the second-largest human state in the galaxy. It centers on the world Zhdant, one of several worlds where humans evolved independently. Unlike other cultures, though, the Zhodani embrace the use of psionics. Through the use of psionics, they have created a society with much less strife and unhappiness. Critics, though, claim this has only happened because most people are brainwashed by the ruling classes.
The Consulate is an enemy of the Third Imperium.
