The Nisapa Strait is a pass conecting the Termula Region with the rest of the Lewis Galaxy. Thus the pass is located in this galaxy as well as in Herschel Space. It marks the frontier between the Plutocracy of Gish and the Empire of Mankind and has been a very militarized zone for millennia.

However, militarization of the pass declined when the Plutocracy and the Empire became associates. In recent millenia militarization of the pass on behalf of the Empire has remained in place but the Plutocracy instead has slowly ease it's militarization of the area as the country moves towards extensive commerce.

The pass is a straight border by one side by the Mikos Void and the other side by the great void of space. The Nisapa pass is then a concentration of star systems very close to each other and thus easily defendable in case of attacks. The area is crossed by 3 hyperspace lanes. The main hyperspace lane crossing the pass is called the Nisapa Lane. This lane is easier to travel from the Termula Region outward than from the rest of the Galaxy inward, which gave the Plutocracy and advantage and also a shield to prevent invasion from the Empire.

History

The worlds of the straight were among the first to be discovered and explored within the Termula Region. Several exploration missions to the Termula region crossed through the straight discovering and mapping it extensively. They also discovered the hyperspace lanes of the region which was crucial later on to speed colonialization of the area.

One of this was the explorer Tusel Kaffar was the first official explorer to reach the region and discover it for the Lewis Nations. He followed the notes this two lost vessels had wrote to guide himself into the area. He travelled extensively throught it with its tripulation (about 2 million people) for over 20 years before getting out of it through the Strait of Nisapa back into the Empire. He was able to map hyperspace lanes within the region and several planets he had visited to refurbish himself. Once fiding the Nisapa Hyperspace lane out of the region and back into the empire, his findings made him famous and well respected. He even presented his findings to the Emperor and was granted means permisions to hold territory over the region. However, colonization efforts did not prosperate due to the far distance and geographical barrier that the Mikos void presented. However, interstellar maps now had knowledge of the area and incorporated it losely into it.

The area remained uninhabited until the mass exodus to the Termula Region at the end of the Nobility War. This event that formed the Plutocracy change the Nisapa Strait as well. The first settlers arrived then and settled the world of Ihuna, which became the most important world in the Nisapa Straight and thus one of the most important in the Plutocracy controling most of the influx in and out of the Termula Region.

For most of the early history of the Plutocracy, the Nisapa Strait has acted as a barrier and first line of assault against the Empire. Nevertheless, it has been as well the main route of goods from the Empire inside the Region. This means that around 60 000 CE - 65 000 CE, the straight began to devellopped as a trading hub between both Nations, profiting commercially most of the area. It was in fact one of the key regions to iniciate the Rebellion against the nobility in 92 000 CE. This led to Ihuna and nearby worlds to be strongholds of the Rebellious side (Rich Merchants, Traders etc..)

Nation

Most of the Nisipa Strait of the Termula region is controlled by the Plutocracy of Gish and is the nexus with the rest of the Galaxy. Most notably with the Empire of Mankind. For most of the Plutocracy's early history, the Nisipa Strait was completely shielded to further Imperial expansion and menacing attack. It was concentrated by the so called.

Main Worlds

  • Ihuna

The Largest world of the Strait, located within most of the hyperspace lanes connect. This world seems to have been artificially terraform by past civilizations due not only to it's habitability but mostly to how precisly well placed it is. For many millenia it was a feud of the Gemeldi house and one, if not the main center of commerce with the Empire. It was during the medium and late historical periods of the Plutocracy that the planet thrived.

  • Sazu

Another important world within the strait. It is mostly located in the other extreme of the hyperspace lanes, and was for many milennia a backwater that with the rise in commerce with the Empire, saw it's population and importance booming. Most of it's industry however is related to mechanical construction, shiprepairing and others.

  • Moon of Olei

A center of Military importance it has the largest known military operational base of the Plutocracy orbiting this moon. It is located in the shadows of a large gas giant. It has a very fertile soil and it's inhabitants have dedicated themselves almost entirely to provide the station and military personel with arms, food, energy, spaceships, water, minerals and many other products, even manpower.
