In YE 42, the Jiyuu System is a moderately populated territory serving as a busy urban, industrial, and military center within the Yamatai Star Empire. With the recent return of the Motoyoshi Clan to the region, they have used their influence to drive increased corporate opportunities and have supported initiatives to take in refugees from other regions of the Empire that have been affected by the Kuvexian War. The Jiyuu System also offers many tourist destinations and historical sites.
Jiyuu means “freedom” in Yamataigo (邪馬台語).
“Welcome to the Jiyuu System! The Jiyuu System is the Regional Captial for the Outer Colonies of the Yamatai Star Empire and is the clan seat for the Motoyoshi Clan. This region has plenty to offer and is a great place to live and work. We welcome the refugees from the rest of the Empire who have been tragically affected by the Kuvexian War.” - Yugumo Corporation Promotion Video, YE 42.
The Jiyuu System was designated as M-1 by the YSS Akuro II, the Flagship of the Fifth Expeditionary Fleet in YE 29. Upon the review of scans from the rest of the Yugumo Cluster, the system was selected to become the Capital System of a new series of Colonies that would secure a new base of operations after the destruction of Taiie by the Sfrarabla Mishhuvurthyar Xhrafuklurp (SMX).
Jiyuu was chosen because of its strategic centrality to other systems in the cluster, making it a potential launching pad for defensive operations in the region. The system is also rich in resources, plenty of planets capable of supporting mining and industrial colonies as well as two inhabitable worldsto support full colonization efforts: Jiyuu III and Jiyuu IV.
The first colony in the system was on Jiyuu III (Jiyuu), which was called Tamashii no Jiyuu (“Soul of Freedom”), in YE 29. Settled by the Fifth Expeditionary Fleet and the Motoyoshi Clan, it became the home of millions of survivors from Taiie.
In YE 30, the Jiyuu System became the Capital System of the United Outer Colonies, which was intended to be a neutral peacekeeper nation, grounded on a philosophy promoting intergalactic peace through the cooperation of all nations in the known universe. In YE 33, Due to invasion and heavy bombings by the NMX, the Jiyuu System was evacuated by the Star Army of Yamatai.
Then in YE 41, Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko, the former Taisho of the Fifth Expeditionary Fleet and the leader Motoyoshi Clan returned and placed a massive financial investment into the System. The former Sunflower Corporation was merged into the Yugumo Corporation and the Motoyoshi Clan funded initiatives to boost commercial and industrial activity in the system. Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko also made the System the home of the First Expeditionary Fleet.
The Jiyuu System is the Capital System of the Outer Colonies of the Yamatai Star Empire.
