The Suvaren Exclusion Zone is a set of defenses and checkpoints which were set up outside the Suvaren Galaxy by the nation of Sedrua. Originally, the Suvaren Exclusion Zone served the purpose of protecting Sedrua of any foreigners which trespassed the Suvaren Galaxy. People inside the Suvaren Galaxy were also blocked from leaving the Suvaren Exclusion Zone. Before its partial opening, insiders judged this as a non-issue, since a vast majority of citizens resided in B'Kalatala or similar megastructures.
It is known that the Suvaren Exclusion Zone opened after the War over Heaven, a string of conflicts which started after automated Sedruan forces detected Commonwealth vessels in the zone. After a session of heavy fighting and attempts of diplomacy, Sedrua signed a peace treaty. Years of further diplomatic relations encouraged Sedrua to open the Suvaren Exclusion Zone, making immigration and travel available.
The Suvaren Exclusion Zone is also the home of an array of Intergalactic Gateways, with some of the highest concentrations of such gateways in the Local Universe. These gateways have been re-activated since their long dormancy, allowing efficient travel from the Suvaren Galaxy to the rest of the Aylothn-Lactea Group.
The Suvaren Exclusion Zone has numerous areas and stations, which have served their purpose for the defense of Sedrua. Most of them hold advanced weaponry, unmatched by Sedrua's peers in the Commonwealth. While Sedrua has given away some forms of technology from the defense stations, they are regularly placed behind closed doors. Attempts to trade for or buy these technologies have been met with relative denial, something which has somewhat hampered local CUEN-Sedrua relations.
The Suvaren Exclusion Zone was originally implementing during Sedrua's regression into an isolationist state. After many millennia of intergalactic control, numerous things would fall apart. This included a major rebellion and the shift of national attitude to expansion. As claims were lost and people tended back towards the Suvaren Galaxy, Sedrua decided to construct the Suvaren Exclusion Zone. Not only would it protect the people form any sort of exterior threat, but it would allow Sedrua to bide time until an eventual re-introduction to the universe.
In the years of dormancy, Sedrua also used the Suvaren Exclusion Zone to send numerous probes and automated scouting systems outside of the Suvaren Galaxy, to Intergalactic Gateways. This allowed Sedrua to see the development of nations in the Aylothn Galaxy. With time, they noticed the rise of the Commonwealth, and strengthened defense around the exclusion zone. Further after, the Commonwealth managed to travel to the Suvaren Galaxy. With breach of the Suvaren Exclusion Zone, automated Sedruan forces soon attacked any Commonwealth vessels in a series of short conflicts.
Until the war was over, the Suvaren Exclusion Zone was regarded as one of the most advanced network of military units in the Local Universe. After sessions of diplomacy however, it was largely disarmed. Even so, the Suvaren Exclusion Zone is still regarded as a highly defended and technologically advanced sector of defense around the Suvaren Galaxy. It most notably existed in a highly defended state during the War of the Ancients and for long after it. After The Exhumation, the Suvaren Exclusion Zone has been re-armed after Sedrua was accused of starting the War of the Ancients by the Quintet Puontari Federations.
