The Siren System is an important resource-rich system in the Yamatai Star Empire.
In YE 42, the Siren System is the second busiest system in the Outer Colonies of the Yamatai Star Empire, second to only the Jiyuu System. Siren is a heavily industrialized system and both Yugumo Corporation and Ketsurui Fleet Yards have active resource extraction facilities and sites in the system.
Located in the Yugumo Cluster, the Siren system was discovered and first mapped by the Fifth Expeditionary Fleet in YE 30. Due to the system's abundance of natural resources, namely the valuable asteroids in the Akuma Belt, it was quickly claimed as a system belonging to the Yamatai Star Empire. Later that year it was claimed as part of the short-lived separatist nation of the United Outer Colonies, the system returned to partial Yamatai Star Empire control in YE 36. The Lorath Matriarchy shared rights in the system until their disappearance in YE 39.
In YE 34, in expectation of the system eventually returning to the full control of the Yamatai Star Empire, Motoyoshi Hanei Kaisha placed their new Kodoku-Class Mining and Processing Facility, Port Siren in the system.
In the years that followed, the Motoyoshi Clan under the guidance of Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko used Port Siren to generate the economical support to fuel the clan's come back in YE 41, when they returned to the Jiyuu System. Now under the control of the Yugumo Corporation, in YE 42, Port Siren continues to be an important part of the clan's revenue stream, as well as one of the largest employers in the Outer Colonies of Yamatai.
Port Siren is a heavily adapted Ge-H1-7A - Kōdaina Minato-Class Orbital Installation that was designated the Kodoku-Class Mining and Processing Facility. Port Siren provides refinery and processing from all mining operations in the system as well as from many other systems in the region. It currently is located at the edge of the Akuma Asteroid belt, where it processes massive amounts of extracted materials for use in both the civilian and Star Army Military Industrial Complex.

The Akuma Belt is a massive belt of leftover rocks from the formation of the Siren System, it is a treacherous field of rocky debris varying in size from the size of a fist, to the size of a small moon. There is always action in the belt, one tumbles into another, a predestined course set in motion decades or centuries before. Shifting gravitational fields rule with a chaotic hand over all things rock and metal. To most it is a navigational hazard, to the brave, it is a mine of opportunity.
Rich in deposits of iron, nickle, iridium, pallidium, gold, and countless other rare elements not found in high concentrations on terrestrial worlds such as magnesium, osmium, ruthenium, rhodium and platinum. Corporations like Yugumo Corporation and the other major employer in the belt, Ketsurui Fleet Yards have made metal and mineral extraction a major part of the industrial complex.
Both the United Outer Colonies and the Lorath Matriarchy during their short presence in the system attempted to harvest the resources of the vast field of asteroids and failed to make any significant dent on the resources available before their political situations ended their reign over the system. In the hands of the Yamatai Star Empire and the majority of the claim falling in the laps of the Yugumo Corporation and Ketsurui Zaibatsu and its subsidiaries, the wealth machine of the Siren System is open for business. Intelligence suggests that the Interstellar Kingdom Of Kuvexia has come to understand the value of this system and has named it as a target for their resource-hungry forces. The Star Army of Yamatai in response has increased patrols and established the secret Nemesis Bastion to try and ensure the system's defense and it remaining under the control of the Yamatai Star Empire.
The rare elements needed to produce Sitearium and Stellarium are found in the Akuma Belt.
The Star Army of Yamatai has established a presence in the system.
A secret subterranean First Expeditionary Fleet Star Army Base, Nemesis Bastion, has been constructed Siren I. A strategic deployment base capable of launching a resistance in the event that the Siren or Jiyuu System are invaded.
All the planets have "Guriddo" Defense System, in addition to the one at Port Siren.
