"One of the Thirteen Founding World of the Intergalactic Federation, it is the only one with the majority of its population being Unionist believers. Still, a peaceful world, that has grown to dislike war. A world with its own culture and singularity, it is one of the main centers to practice the Paths. Famous musicians, painters and dancers, come from here. Most of whom are derived from the enhancements of the Awakening. This is a main reason why this world is a center for the entertainment industry, although is it also a central key of production, mining and services within the nation" - Miriam Ulrich, Parlamentarian
Mukan is a Terran World of the E-Class type, located in the Akai Nebulae, in the Lewis Galaxy and deep into Herschel Space. It lies within the Henyas System. It belongs to The Intergalactic Federation and is one of the founding members, and the only one with a majority of its population deriving from the Union.
The first settlers came as refugees in this planet from the War between the Empire of Mankind and the Union. Most belong or have turned into peaceful faction members. They keep practising their religion and the parasite's groes in some of the areas of this planet. Still some small areas have not a Unionist majority. Mukan is the only place where the Paths can still be practice by members of the Unionist faith, with different Path schools having centers here. Mining and Industrial production as well as entertainment are the main source of wealth and income in this planet.
The planet was mapped vaguely by the Empire and later on by the Union on its race for unexplored space. The Empire and the Union had notice the Akai Nebulae as a rich terran worlds region of the Lewis Galaxy but the breakout of war halted any colonization attempts. It wasn't until Novans and Mirdans arrived as settlers in the Akai Nebulae, that intensive mapping and physical exploration continued.
