|Siris Habitat in the current era|
The Siris Habitat - Data Panel
|Definition||subversive peripatetic relativistic fractal habitat / museum-ship|
|Symbol||Wreathed O'Neill habitat against starfield with name 'Siris' written in ancient proto-anglic.|
|Founded||2396 (Original O'Neill Habitat)|
|Psyche, Art, Culture||Metapsychology,: Nano-based, staunchly immortalist, knowledge preserver. |
Religion or Ideology: Militant Atheism. Religious faith is considered a form of insanity and treated. Archailects are respected as intellectually superior but not considered 'divine' (see Buddhism, Hinayana). Ideology is reminiscent of TRHN, Cyberia; rather eclectic mix of academic, GPL and others, combined with surprising disdain for virtual reality.
Culture and Art: Virtual and low-mass. Nanodesign is a popular artform and Siria has produced some of the more innovative templates. Holography is also popular but virches less so.
Language: CACC, Douh, Old Anglic. Daily discourse is done in CACC and Old Anglic is used for ceremonial situations. Douh is generally used for external trade.
|Territory and Population||Current Territory: None outside Siris Habitat itself. |
Capital: Siris Habitat itself.
other important systems: None
Current non-copy Population: approx. 300,000 (Constant immigration and emigration)
Population Breakdown: 82% nanocyborg; 7% virtual, 6% vec; 5% other (Mainly Baselines. Genetically Sirians are and remain more or less pure human baselines.)
|Government and Administration||Government: AI-mediated cyberdemocracy. |
Administrative divisions: Military, Internal Security, Resource Management, Astrogation, Education, Research.
National holidays: 16 per solar year, determined by consensus and varies.
Constitution: Siris Habitat Charter v21.4
Legal system: Trial by Peers. No official judicial corps. Legislation is quite loose by O'Neill standards.
|Economics, Local Infrastructure||Currency: Internal, virtual, cryptographic. Recognized and exchangeable. |
Major Industries: Nanodesign, tech consulting, information trade, ultratech Compuforming.
Note: This polity possesses advanced godtech computer capabilities including several large godtech computronium cores.
Major Stargate Plexi: none (permanent microgate datalink to Known Net via Merrion at NoCoZo)
Military expenditures - percent of GDP: 15% (Note that this figure is inflated by inclusion of many multiple-use installations.)
|Interstellar Trade and Treaty Relations||Interstellar treaty organization participation: NoCoZo Tier II, Strangelet ban, Amalgamation Containment Initiative, Perseus Arm Defense Organization, Institute of Survival Associate Membership, Encyclopaedia Galactica Institute Associate Membership |
Exports - commodities: Technological data, nanotech templates, photonano drexborging (See SNARE), bodymods, consultation services, ascension services, Data Storage Services, ultratech computronium.
Exports - partners: Non-Coercive Zone, Keter Domain, Terran Federation, Technorapture Hypernation, any
Imports - commodities: Exotic matter, ultratech products, raw elements, non-nanofactured ('natural' or 'original') luxuries.
Imports - partners: any
|Longrunning Interstellar Disputes:||Indiscriminate technological sales have been disapproved by Solar Dominion and Negentropy Zone.|
