One of three star systems in the Samurai Sector, Virginia's habitable world was adopted by the Star Army of Yamatai's First Expeditionary Fleet as a logistics center and depot. It hosts newly-built terrestrial manufacturing centers, shipyards, and repair shops (See Virginia Fleet Depot) and is home to 2 million non-refugee people and a larger number of former UOC citizens. Its current senator is Iemochi Seinosuke.
This system is restricted to military traffic of the Star Army of Yamatai; certain civilian ships under military escort may be permitted to service the refugee camps.
The flag of Virginia is based on the Star Army service ribbon.
Virginia is a very Earth-like planet making it perfect for habitation.
In addition to the vast Virginia Fleet Depot complex, in YE 33 the Yamatai Star Empire constructed 10,000 Refugee Towns, capable of supporting 184 million people with additional overflow capability in the form of tent cities if necessary. This was done to ensure the welfare of displaced persons from the former Yamataian colonies in the United Outer Colonies.
By YE 37 the last of the refugees had moved on or returned home, leaving the refugee towns empty.
Due to the Kuvexian advances in YE 41, Virginia has begun to take in refugees who have escaped the invasion force, most notably coming from Planet Himiko. Due to its positioning in the Samurai Sector, it has also become a major staging ground for defense fleets that aim to repel the invasion force; consequentially, many refugee towns have been expanded to include factories, shipyards, and depots, often operated by the refugees living within.
