Jiyuu VI was discovered and studied in YE 29 by the YSS Akuro II, the flagship of the Fifth Expeditionary Fleet. A super-massive gas giant planet with gases oddly resistant to combustion, it would have become a star had it been made of different materials. The planet spins at a very fast speed, stretching the planet's diameter to 150% of its pole-to-pole distance.
In YE 30, the scientists of the United Outer Colonies established an orbital base for the study of the effect of high gravity environments on materials and systems. The base, however, was abandoned when the Jiyuu System was invaded by the NMX in YE 33.

This planet is a gas giant so there are no surface regions to explore or develop.
Jiyuu VI has several orbital installations:
In YE 30, the scientists of the United Outer Colonies established an orbital base for the study of the effect of high gravity environments on materials and systems. This now abandoned facility remains intact and in a low-power operations mode. It has been claimed by the Yugumo Corporation, but no clear plans for the facility have been laid out. Rumors have circulated that the base was used for secret, off-record research that may have included weapons production by the Tange Clan.
In YE 29, under the orders of Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko, the First Expeditionary Fleet moved ships into the outer orbit of Jiyuu VI for a Special Project. The ships include the following from the First Expeditionary Fleet Assets and Organization:
