Ouranir is the largest satellite of the Via Sagittaria Galaxy.
It is a satellite galaxy of the Via Sagittaria Galaxy, the galaxy, which contains over 10 billion stars. It is the largest satellite galaxy of Via Sagittaria and is the fourth largest galaxy in the Local Universe. The Galaxy has been subject to colonization and integration by some remnant Human forces after the War of the Final Transition. Even prior to the use of wormholes, several long-distance warp expeditions had reached the galaxy and several systems on the edges of the galaxy had been colonized.
During the 9th to the 15th millenium, the Interstellar Systems of Ysau (ISY) which is based on the outer rim expanded throughout the core, slowly dominating the central area with about three and a half million colonized systems among the many billions in the area. Around this time, the Yohjan Confederacy was also expanding in the galactic southwest, setting the large Tarantula Nebula between the human and the Ysau space. While the Ysau was nominally under the Confederacy, it was in all but name an independent state, and there were occasional fighting around the nebula between local human and Ysau sectors. After the outbreak of the War of the Final Transition, the Ysau emerged relatively intact in comparison to the shattered humanity, and Ysau began to expand slowly into said nebula.
While the ISY became the dominant power in Ouranir after the Split of the Yohjan Confederacy, there were multiple large interstellar civilizations around the less-dense fringes of the galaxy, including the vast human space and the loyalists to the Confederacy. As the Confederacy was reformed as the Confederacy of Borealis, specifically with the primus inter pares of the United Federation of Star Systems (UFSS) being centered in Via Sagittaria, it began a campaign to integrate the Magellanic Clouds. Unlike the nearby Ventemir Galaxy galaxy, which was absorbed fairly peacefully, the ISY specifically resisted the annexation backed by non-human allies and refused to join the Confederacy. This culminated in the long stretched First Magellanic War between the 23rd and 25th millenia, in which the ISY and its allies were eventually subjugated and the galaxy annexed into UFSS.
Despite the annexation, many of the former Ysau leaders still held considerable powers over the galaxy, as UFSS' annexation of the galaxy meant that it was administered as a subregion of the Via Sagittaria instead of its own galaxy. Continued discontentment with general ignoring of the region by the Aegyn-centered authorities initiated the Ouranir Troubles, a long-lasting, low-intensity conflict that has lasted almost continuously since the end of the First War to 100,000, with occasional interruptions. In more recent years, insurgent forces have been rebuilding itself, and with highly increased intensity since 99,950, there are concerns that a proper Second Ouranir War had already started.
