 Nirasaki was settled by communal idealists who hoped to create a perfect society, in which everyone
would live in harmony in the virtual absence of government or a policing force. The experiment was only partially
successful, as infighting between settlers and the early colonists' insistence on barter-based trade made it difficult
to deal with other worlds for needed goods. Eventually, a basic planetary government, structured as a loose
coalition of the various communes on Kalifax and Ouanii, Nirasaki's two largest continents, was established.
Based on democratic principles, the Nirasaki government required a simple majority vote for any decisions
affecting a planetary region or interplanetary relations and helped create a basic planetary economy based on
work credits and a standard for determining the relative values of products and services. Beyond these basic
functions, which included an emergency powers clause in case of an external threat, the Nirasaki government had
no other authority. Farms, cattle ranches, fishing communities and artistic communes made up the bulk of
Nirasaki's population until the rise of the Star League. Though Nirasaki was left to its semi-anarchistic
government under the Hegemony, the planet began to draw the attention of entrepreneurs. However, few
corporate entities could make headway on Nirasaki, due to lax government practices and the work credits
system, until the native Nirasaki Computers Collective was founded in the large Blue Heron Commune.
The NCC developed computer systems of astonishing efficiency and quality, including the famous Blue Lotus
personal computer line, which was cutting edge in the Star League's day. For this reason, the Hegemony
contracted the NCC to develop software for use in the Space Defense Systems throughout its holdings. As it
happened, the NCC did its job too well in this regard. When the Amaris coup took place, the brightest minds of
the Collective were forcibly relocated to Terra, and their work pitted the liberating SLDF forces against SDS
networks that used some of the most sophisticated pseudo-artificial intelligence ever produced. It wasn't until
years later, when returning SLDF forces uncovered technical specs hidden away for their benefit in the
abandoned NCC headquarters, that their artful programming was defeated and the worlds Amaris had turned
into deadly gauntlets were retaken.
Though the NCC itself never revived after the fall of the League, its former offices and production facilities were
eventually taken over by Blue Heron Computers, today a major producer of the Blue Lotus portable compads
and noteputers used throughout the Inner Sphere. Nirasaki's government is more utilitarian now, a result of
centuries under the Dragon's rule. It includes a planetary police force and a local militia, both based in the capital
city of Elusian on the Kalifax continent. The Blue Heron Commune, one of the many cities that still hold to the
traditions of communal existence, is located on the southern peninsula of Ouanii. Nirasaki's third major landmass,
Arkatis, is in the planet's south polar region and is home to the Nirasaki Communications Community, a
planetwide information and entertainment company based in the city of Arkatis' Unity.
 Nirasaki was originally part of the Draconis Combine until the creation of The Republic. Nirasaki became
part of Prefecture II under the control of The Republic. After the fall of the HPG Network Fortress Republic was
created and many of the worlds under its control were set free.
 Nirasaki was released from the control of The Republic.
After being released from The Republic, Nirasaki fell under the influence of the Dieron territory.
