Located in the Nepleslian Colonial Expanse, the Porpoise system is named so for the large number of sea mammals inhabiting Pryedain's oceans.

There is only one habitable terrestrial planet, Pryedain. It is roughly the same size as Nepleslia Prime but is roughly 70% water. Its landmasses are divided into two continents (Davis and Westwood), two poles at the north and south, and numerous smaller islands, most of which have not been explored. There is an abundance of sea life and the salt-water can be desalinated to be drinkable, making life on Pryedain very comfortable.
The other planets in the system are almost worthless. Small mining ventures on the other terrestrial planet, Vyedain, hope to strike, hitherto, unknown veins of precious and commercial metals like iron, silver and gold. A small NSN base orbits Pryedain and a garrison of two Sword Frigates make up the entire system's defense force.
Most of the Nepleslians who have settled in Pryedain are sailors or farmers. The fishing and farming industries have taken off in Pryedain, making it one of Nepleslia's main sources of food. Transportation and interstellar commerce are another two industries that are rapidly growing on Pryedain thanks to the sudden influx of Jiyuuian refugees from the former UOC. Some of these refugees have begun their own farms and businesses or joined existing ones. Many of them are competing for the few jobs available as the economy desperately tries to expand to meet the demand of so many skilled workers.
Restaurants have begun opening in larger numbers on Pryedain, including ones which serve Jiyuuian and other foreign cuisine using local products. This has attracted foodie tourists to Pryedain to sample the increasingly diverse delicacies offered on the planet.
Pryedain's inhabitants, both Nepleslian and Jiyuuian, can be said to be loyal to the Democratic Imperium. Many Nepleslians who migrated to the system were Green sympathizers, lured to the planet through heavy colonial advertising and incentives offered by the Nepleslian government after the civil war. Jiyuuians present on Pryedain generally come from Tange and feel that they owe their lives to the Nepleslian government which rescued them from an overwhelming NMX invasion. They are also very grateful for the opportunity to preserve their culture and traditions , working it into the greater tapestry of Nepleslia. This has the explicit support of the Nepleslia authorities, who have campaigned and fundraised for the Jiyuuians.
