Interplanetary Age Genetekker dominated polity, actually a loose and squabbling alliance, encompassing most of the tweak and superior bases and colonies of the outer planets. With their developing Jupiter mining industry (He3), the Genetekkers became like the oil-producing Arab states of several centuries earlier on Earth - very powerful and wealthy through energy monopolies. Later this advantage was lost through the CisLunar orbital alliance and megacorp development of amat farms. However the Genetekkers maintained a superiority in gengineering right up to to the Technocalypse. During the interplanetary dark ages they moved outward, protected their habitats with blue goo, and eventually developed into the mighty House Genen.
