Caerulia is a non-aligned planet on the outer fringe of Explored Space. It is the home planet of the Caerulian people. With a population of just 127 million, Caerulia is one of the least-populous inhabited planets in Explored Space.
A surprise Jektim invasion in 864 NC resulted in Caerulia being forcibly annexed into the Jektim Imperium. A planet-wide resistance movement led to the end of the occupation in 1112 NC, however the planet was left in tatters following the Jektim withdrawal. Since regaining its independence, Caerulia's transitory government has pursued an independent foreign policy, though their independence has been guaranteed by Explored Space's larger military partners, namely the Yaforan Interstellar Community and the Systems Union.
Caerulia is a planetary state, meaning the entire planet shares a single unified, sovereign government. After the Jektim withdrawal in 1112 NC, a transitory government was formed from senior members of the planet's major resistance groups. With assistance from the Yaforan Interstellar Community, the government operated for a 15-year mandate, before transferring control of the planet peacefully to the civilian government in 1127 NC.
