|| Interplanetary government
|| Vesk Prime
The Veskarium, an interplanetary empire in the inhabited solar system nearest to the Pact Worlds, is home to the vesk race.
The rigid organization and martial focus of vesk society led to the race conquering the other races of its home system after achieving space travel. The resulting empire was named Veskarium, and eventually extended to encompass their entire system. After Drift travelers from the nearest inhabited system made first contact, Veskarium invaded their system, a war that led to the creation of the Pact Worlds and lasted for centuries until the arrival of the Swarm. This shared threat forced Veskarium to call a truce with the Pact Worlds and join forces to fend off the threat, and this uneasy truce has held to the present day.
