    Amdukan Sector - Credits
    The star names and UWP data were created by the HIWG. The Hhkar are
    from Challenge 52. Much of the information on the Julian Protectorate
    is adapted from _Vilani_and_Vargr_, Digest Group Publications, and from
    information on Mendan Sector in Challenge 49, Game Designer's Workshop.
    Jeff Zeitlin ( converted the sector to Galactic
    format in 1997.

    Astrographical Overview

    The Julian Protectorate: Astrographical Overview
    The Julian Protectorate is a mixed-race (primarily Human and Vargr)
    confederation to core-trailing of the Imperium, in what is traditionally
    referred to as the Vargr Enclaves.  It encompasses all but two systems in
    Amdukan sector, the trailing two-thirds of Mendan sector, the spinward third
    of Arzul sector, and the coreward third of Empty Quarter sector.  Minor
    presences in Antares, Star's End, Trenchans, and Ogzuekhfos sectors round
    out the Protectorate proper; additionally, there are polities in Windhorn,
    Meshan, and Mendan sectors which, while not members of the Protectorate,
    generally coordinate policy and action with the Protectorate.

    The Tetusu-Dene Scale

    The Julian Protectorate: The Tetusu-Dene Scale
    The Tetusu-Dene Scale was developed in the Imperial Spinward Marches as an
    aid to recognizing Vargr integration into Human societies on the Imperial
    Core-Spinward frontier.  It has been adopted (in slightly modified form) by
    the Julian Protectorate to recognize the level of integration of societies
    within the Protectorate.
    The Modified Tetusu-Dene Scale is interpreted as follows:
    0:  Insufficient Contact - The world has not had sufficient contact with
        the other species for any attitude on interaction to have developed.
    1:  Total Xenophobia - Members of the dominant species are bent on the
        extermination of the other.  Attempts to extend extermination policies
        to other worlds will be made.
    2:  Passive Xenophobia - Murder of the other species when found on the planet
        is routine, and generally government policy.  If political repercussions
        are involved, deportation may occur.  Under no circumstances will an
        ambassador of the other species be accepted, and relations with states
        with less xenophobic attitudes are never warm.
    3:  Enslavement - Members of the other species are regarded as fit only to
        serve the dominant species as slaves.  Importation and breeding is
        carefully controlled.
    4:  Alienation - Members of the other species are generally confined to
        reservations, except where it suits the convenience of the dominant
        species to permit otherwise.  Crimes against the other species by the
        dominant species are generally not prosecuted; crimes by the other
        species against the dominant species generally are punished by long terms
        of imprisonment or forced labor, by extremes of corporal punishment, or 
        by death.
    5:  Strong Apartheid - Members of the other species are granted limited
        rights.  Some prosecutions of serious crimes against the other species
        may occur.  "Free" movement may be permitted, possibly under a system of
        travel passes.  Participation in government by the other species is
        barred, and franchise or equivalent is unavailable.
    6:  Weak Apartheid - Members of the other species are permitted to
        participate in government, though they may be barred from many higher
        offices.  Franchise or equivalent may be extended, but limited in scope.
        Many occupations are closed to members of the other species, and
        restrictions on social activities are common.  Facilities provided by
        the government for use of the other species are inferior to those
        provided for the use of the dominant species.  Segregation is mandatory
        on the part of the other species, voluntary on the part of the dominant
    7:  Legislative Equality - Members of the other species are not treated
        differently at law.  Segregation of most activities occurs, and may
        or may not be mandatory.
    8:  Formal Integration - Legal segregation is nonexistent, and forced
        segregation of most activities may be illegal.  Segregation is either
        nonexistent or very informal and very limited, and viewed with distaste.
        Intimate relationships between members of different species are unusual,
        and meet social resistance.
    9:  Total Integration - Both species participate in society on a fully equal
        basis.  Deliberate segregation on any level is considered unacceptable,
        and possibly provocative.  Intimate relationships between members of
        different species are not considered unusual.
    The original Tetusu-Dene Scale assumed that, in an unequal relationship
    between the species, Humans were dominant.  As this may not be the case in
    the Julian Protectorate, Tetusu-Dene evaluations of 7 or less are suffixed
    with V for Vargr-dominated cultures, or H for Human-dominated cultures.
