Former Utopia sphere system.

Colonized in 5184 by an AI consortium setting up a baseline reservation and a local Toulh utopia.

Attacked by the Efficiency Maximisation Paradigm in 5439 and optimized with little loss of life; most of the population was uploaded against their will and instantiated inside a virtual reality copy of their original environment.

Despite Utopia demands during the Jekaumeatrine negotiations it remained in Paradigm control. At present it is one of the most industrialized Paradigm systems. The local baselines and To'huls are believed to live essentially unchanged lives in the near-star virtuality.
