Timeline of Recent Events in Perrachi History
3495 - After seven long years, the World War ends as the Karthat capital city falls
3496 - Northern leaders are put on trial and executed, their propaganda is proven false to the people of their nations
- Reconstruction starts moving along for war-torn areas
3597 - Chervan royal family denied return to jointly occupied homeland
- Galif regains independence but remains unstable
3598 - Last pockets of Cyki resistance are squashed
- Officals ban denying of the Unspeakable Acts with varying punishments
3499 - The remaining five nations (Avik, Fethant, Terolk, Galif, Eleis) band together to form the Perrachi Empire under Viperro Tuolfs, except Eleis which remains independent
3500 - With the slogan "New Change for a New Century" the Democratic Socialist Party becomes the majority party in the Empire
3501 - Grim documentary Our No-Win Situation presents the dual problems of serious overpopulation and insufficiently advanced exotic colony technology
3502 - Large protests occur in major cities across Perrawiih over perceived bureaucratic inefficiency
3503 - In the unstable region of Galif, a violent communist rebellion is defeated
3504 - The moon bases are revisited for the first time since the war ended nine years ago
3505 - Pudding Acrobatics Incident scandals lead to embarrassment and loss of public support for large corporations
3506 - Democratic Socialist Party and other leftist groups officially condemn the system of old capitalism
- Several major companies make official reforms for sustainability and worker cooperation
3507 - The Capitalism Restriction Bill is signed and ratified by Emperor Tuolfs, all sufficiently large corporations are either nationalized or put under worker control
3508 - Navigator Mission leads to the first perrachi landing on Ashkehar, the most distant Nupisian body and only remaining planet perrachi feet had not tread upon
3509 - First contact is made with the United Goonalian Provinces (UGP) followed by technological windfall for perrachi, although the warp drive is withheld
- Contact rapidly follows for several other species goonals know of, including the Beyon Powers (sombrerons, kratair, etc.) and the graid, not to mention the rachak and plikik
3510 - Kratairian merchants trade hyperdrive technology to perrachi, start interstellar imperial expansion
3511 - Advanced life is discovered on the planet Sayari and one species dubbed the ishpali is proven to possess sapience after extensive testing, an event which leads to increased interest in the search for life within the Empire's expanding borders
- Ishpali have only just invented the steam engine and so almost everyone is officially prohibited from visiting
3512 - The fungoid agariki are discovered on the planet I Don't Know, debate over whether they are advanced enough to join perrachi society rages
3513 - Vykusi make first contact with bino and are shortly followed by a team of perrachi, goonal and kratair
- The Eternal Qyooro Academy makes contact with the Perrachi Empire and agree to stay within their three systems as long as they are provided with all the scientific data they want
3514 - The United Society of Star Systems (USSS) is founded, in part by the perrachi
3515 - Fnarls are discovered on the gas giant Alarian and proven sapient, a significant event considering their status as plants; however their technological state is extremely primitive so Alarian is declared off-limits
3516 - Xinmayi are discovered on the planet Kanchugu making them the second example of floral sapience known to perrachi, but their proudest technological achievement is agriculture and so their world is off-limits
3517 - Emperor Tuolfs is elected Chancellor of USSS with most support from left-wing perrachi and bino
- With Tuolfs gone from the post of Emperor, the Socialist Revolution occurs and a President and Prime Minister are elected, Dimikos Talin and Akdi Khadenin respectively
3518 - The new Perrachi Socialist Republic (PSR) joins with other Galactic Protection Agency (GPA) members to put down the threat of the Core Combine
- Talin administration declares war on Makal Kingdom and Slakos Hierarchy with massive popular support in order to defeat fascism
- Makal/slakos liberation is successful, but photos intervention leads to great controversy
- War with photos is narrowly averted by the photese commander's temporary insanity by alien parasite, uneasy peace occurs
3519 - GPA defeats and destroys PSR as a result of zealous interventionist policies on part of the Talin administration, PSR splits into several different factions, USSS de facto dissolves
- Factions fight over control of the former Republic in the Interstellar Civil War
- Akdi Khadenin is killed en route to Extra by a luzonian squadron
3520 - After the brief war, treaties among the factions are agreed on: The ten systems with the most habitable planets become independent nations, and the rest of the hundreds of thousands of stars are governed by the Perrachi Scientific and Industrial Dominion (PSID)
- Agariki are finally officially contacted, reactions are warm and friendly for the new species
3521 - Present day
- Other species are starting to view perrachi space as a viable option for a job and/or a home
- Agariki continue to gain a reputation as cheap and cheerful all-purpose (if not flammable) workers, qyooro keep to themselves and their Academy's ambassador is as boring as ever
- An increasing number of sapients from Sayari and Kanchugu are seen throughout the Alliance, fnarls are left alone except by some xenobiologists

Perrawiih
(Images by the extremely talented martyk)

Class: L-Common
Adjective: Perran
Sun: Nupis
Sun Type: Class G Yellow Main Sequence
Planet #1: Ktak (I)
Planet #2: Perrawiih (L-Common)
Planet #3: Pakagtsi (T)
Planet #4: Tazhpeh (J-1)
Planet #5: Ariki (J-3)
Planet #6: Ashkehar (O-3)

Size: 110% Earth size
Gravity: .96g
Order From Sun: Second planet
Distance From Sun: 1.34 AU
Moons: One moon, Setsanari
Rings: Yes, Type Icy-3
Average Temperature: Ranges from bitterly cold to very hot depending on location
Atmosphere: 64% nitrogen, 34% oxygen, 0.017% methane. Ozone layer covers stratosphere but is weaker than Earth's. Carbon dioxide is replaced by methane in Perran biochemical cycles. Sky colored violet.
Atmosphere Density: 118 kPa
Liquid: Normal water oceans, purple due to phytoplankton-like creatures called jep living in them. Also has blue freshwater lakes, rivers, etc.
Land-Liquid Percentage: 62% land, 38% water
Average Terrain: Varies greatly, much like Earth

Main Species: Perrachi (native)
Foreign Species: As a result of the native biosphere the atmosphere contains methane instead of carbon dioxide, but the ratio to the rich oxygen levels is low enough for most L-Common sapients to not need breathing apparati unless they're plants. Tourism is a smaller industry than on other planets, but still highly publicized. Fears of biological contamination make microbial sterilization a mandated practice at spaceports, and non-sapient extraperran life is rare. Goonals and slakos require precautions against the higher presence of ultraviolet radiation.

Length of Day: About 30 Earth hours
Length of Year: 325 Perrawiih days
Core: Solid core surrounded by a liquid outer core, composed of iron-nickel
Continents: 3

% Urban: 20%
Spaceports: One for every major city on the surface and fifteen in orbit
Imports: Technology, art, the usual
Exports: See above
Capital: Raaksis
Population: 4 billion perrachi, 60 million other
Coordinates: Sector G-3, Subsector Epsilon-Five

Perrawiih is the home planet of the perrachi and is a lush world filled with beautiful and often dangerous life that coexists with huge, bustling cities. It has no polar ice caps due to the fact that it has a fast rotation and that it is closer to Nupis than we are to Sol. It used to have three moons, but the two lesser moons collapsed into the icy planetary rings due to gravitational stress. The rings were mined for natural resources(mainly water) until perrachi set up bases on other planets and moons. It's rings are a bit more complex than Uranus's but not as complex as Saturn's.

Perrawiih is controlled by the Nupisian Harmonious Confederation, a loose alliance of the different planets and moons of the Nupis system. As a sovereign Free Planet within the Confederation, Perrawiih is largely self-governing except for interplanetary issues. It wields considerable influence in the NHC and the Perrachi Alliance as a whole, having the largest population of any perrachi celestial body and being the birthplace of the entire species. The government is comparable to a fusion between the old PSR and the old Eleisian Union, with a strong focus on both the general well-being and the environment, eco-socialism if you will.

Setsanari

Class: O-4
Adjective: Setsanarian
Sun: Nupis
Sun Type: Class G Yellow Main Sequence
Planet: Perrawiih

Size: 0.0712% Earth size
Gravity: 0.15g
Order From Planet and Sun: First moon of second planet
Rings: None
Average Temperature: Bitterly cold
Atmosphere: Almost none except a few gases
Atmosphere Density: No atmosphere except a few gases
Liquid: Water in a vast underground salt water ocean
Land-Liquid Ratio: 100% land
Average Terrain: Icy/rocky

Main Species: Perrachi (non-native)
Foreign Species: Nearly none that aren't Perran.

Length of Day: N/A
Length of Year: N/A
Core: Solid core surrounded by a liquid outer core, composed of iron with some sulfur and nickel
Continents: One, the entire surface

% Urban: 3%
Spaceports: 18 on surface
Imports: Technology, art, the usual
Exports: Scientific information, technology
Capital: Sikwektki
Population: 270,000 Perrachi, 8,000 other
Coordinates: Sector G-3, Subsector Epsilon-Five

Perrawiih's current moon Setsanari(which literally translates to "colorful orb" because when viewed from Perrawiih it is very colorful indeed) is very similar in appearance and outer composition to Jupiter's moon Callisto but is about the size of Ganymede. It does have a salt water ocean beneath its crust, but the only native organisms are single-celled. Organisms from other planets have been imported, though. However, while its icy surface and(?) underground ocean is like Callisto, its internal structure is like Earth's Moon. A terraforming project to melt the icy layer and turn the world into an ocean moon has been put on hold for many years, and isn't going anywhere at the moment.

Setsanari is controlled by the Nupisian Harmonious Confederation, a loose alliance of the different planets and moons of the Nupis system. As a sovereign Free Moon within the Confederation, Setsanari is largely self-governing except for interplanetary issues. The government is considerably less "eco" than the eco-socialists of Perrawiih, because there isn't much of an environment to speak of on the surface where everyone lives. The style of government would appear to a human as similar to the rustic old days of American leftism in the early 20th century, but the fragile life support technology prevents anybody from getting too violent.

Paranchi
Paranchi is the language of perrachi. Though spoken by all, regional accents are common. While a human would at first appear to be able to pronounce their language (though with differing degrees of difficulty), perrachi do in fact possess the ability of vocal mimicry to a greater extent than humans. Like human tonal languages (i.e. Mandarin Chinese and Lingala), Paranchi can look uniform when written phonetically but words that appear to be the same take on different meanings with special vocalizing. It doesn't use tones for word differentiation, instead opting for emotional indication like English albeit in a significantly more musical manner. However, perrachi do speak in different "voices" to create different words. These voices sound very similar to musical instruments. When written in Panakchi (perrachi script), Black indicates a perrachi's normal voice and is used for personal words, Red indicates a voice rather like a light brass instrument and is used for descriptive words, Blue indicates a voice similar to a flute and is used for nouns, and Green indicates a voice somewhat like an oboe with snare drum-like percussion for stop consonants and is used for both verbs and purely grammatical words.

It should be noted that perrachi can mimic sounds beyond these (to what extent depending on the individual), but doing so may require vocal straining and is not seen as part of normal speech. However, this skill can be utilized to converse with most alien species that use speech for communication. Also, in recent years a very small number of perrachi have started to use Purple to indicate words pertaining to objects of Perran origin. Make of that what you will. One last note: Perrachi have tetrachromacy, meaning they see in four base colors rather than our normal three (Red, yellow, and blue). For the sake of convenience, those invisible colors are not displayed in Panakchi.

Panakchi, the Paranchi Script
Possessing beaks but no lips, perrachi cannot normally pronounce certain sounds like m and b. As such, the result is Paranchi sounding like a parrot speaking Nahuatl. Their linguistic versatility allows them to imitate all the sounds found in human speech and more, but those outside the phonemes listed here are seen as unorthodox and usually reserved for personal names.
