Halgon is a smaller player among the great powers of Mannon, but has had one of the most stable governments on the planet -- lasting over eight hundred years with no significant change or revolt. Its extra-system ambitions have always been smaller than its fellow nations, but it tends to be very careful and long-sighted about what it chooses to occupy, and how it chooses to exploit it. Is in sole control of the Tansgit system, a neighbor system to Sokkor.
Because it doesn't have the logistical capacity to extract all the resource in the Tansgit system, it sells extraction rights (leases, more accurately) to other nations. Damamat is an important client.
