Rynkeby Colony
Early in the 27th century a joint surveying venture between Kaelring Atmos, Inc and the Torcuil Corporation confirmed a rich bio-harvesting, pharmaceutical and mineral opportunities within the Eaxle-Raed system. Research stations were established on both worlds, following quickly by investments in a slow bake terraforming facility on Ejlinge together with  harvesting operations and 'grey colonisation' of Rynkeby - the colonists a mixture of those fleeing the encroaching war drums within the Confederature, those seeking a reduced reliance on technology or simply the illusion of freedom. After thirty years Kaelring Atmos stopped sending supplies or maintenance technicians, facing a major audit in civilised space and having over-extended themselves. After a further twenty the Torcuil Corporation devolved decision-making authority to the Rynkeby Extraction Authority, a subsidiary, and so long as their haulers remained supplied distanced themselves from 'local politics'. Free merchants would visit, now and then, seeking out illicit trades; three vast sleeper ships rumbled insystem, seeking colonial rights and instead submitting to the REA. At least twice the local pickets fought off the depredations of pirates, before they succumbed to worn parts and tired crews.

It is 2998 AD, by the old Terran reckoning. No-one has breached the spike boundary at the system's edge in seven years. In the cities and towns the REA rule with callous disregard for anything other than quotas and processing efficiency, but their grip is slackening and recent protests have forced Protector Malte Riva to appoint a Council to handle discretionary projects with a fair hand

Appointed representatives and a legal subsidiary of the Torcuil Corporation, the REA constitute the formal government and security forces of the Rynkeby Colony. With many key decisions controlled centrally from Caldwell, together with it's concentration of facilities, they rules with a firm grip
