Previously an agri-world for it’s robust fishing, it’s central port Selachium grew to hive size as more and more trade came through it’s stable warp channel. However, it’s location was not unnoticed by the enemy. The mind of the governor was poisoned by heresy, and the planet seceded from the Imperium, joining a small pocket of worlds making a bid for independence. The Crown Stars Republic seceded from the Imperium, and prepared to meet their full fury. Currently the site of the Battle of Icthia, on the single continent (also called Icthia). Their continent is roughly the size of Australia, and has a temperate climate. It is populated by a few settlements, mostly along the coast, the enormous Hive of Selachium, and what was once a sizable population of insectoid species.
