"But a single wormhole link from the bustle of densely populated systems Greylag, Daffy or Gegton, filled with bureaucrats, diplomats, artists, scientists and citizens and mighty cities and megastructures, the Capital of the Negentropy Alliance marks a strange and foreboding contrast. An austere and desolate desert world, the only non-natural artifact on the Seat of Judgement is a single ultratech tower.
Here you will find a potent image of the workings of this great Alliance. The apparently still and silent tower is actually sending and receiving a constant flood of messages, orders, demands, analysis and news, but it is not directly apparent.
If you go to the Seat of Judgement, you go there to be judged. It is not intended as a pleasant place, for truth can be sharp and cold. Keeping it empty and austere is a deliberate style statement, of Negentropic minimalism, telling everyone: we don't need the grandeur or bustle, we have Truth instead. The Negentropy Alliance is so powerful that it can keep its capital small and simple."
