CIS Meeting on Zonama Sekot

September 3, 2012

GNN reporter Rakiko Lowtide attended the latest Confederation of Independent Systems (CIS) on Zonama Sekot.

“As per the treaty of the Confederacy of Independent Systems (CIS) the chairmanship is on a rotating schedule, giving each member system a chance to chair and host the CIS. For this time period, the mysterious jungled planet of Zonama Sekot hosted the event, and will host at least one or more meetings before passing the duties onto another system. Zonama Magister Salene Lusch and Potentium Master Flint Mokeev acted as host. Attending as well was Gistya Antilles of the Corellian Mining Corporation (CMC), Zeltros Queen Viera Lars, Shaka the Hutt of the Jiramma Dlugacz Clans out of Nar Shaddaa, and observers Pen Cee of the Banking Clans out of the Eriadu Sector, and Nasaji Oba of Shili and Baroness Jolend of Mos Espa, Tatooine.

The talks began with a discussion of the recent arrest of Sihivus Verne who had caused some damage to some of the CIS worlds most notably Zeltros. Queen Lars stated that there was no plans to try to loot Verne’s goods but would require some financing to continue with repairs on Zeltros as well as moving building a new Palace. The CMC and their subsidiary CEC said they would offer lower rates on goods and services to member planets to help bolster and rebuild their economies. Shaka the Hutt stated he had several businesses and contacts which could also be of assistance.

The banking clan was also present to introduce a plan for the entire CIS to obtain secured loans at a low stable rate. With the member economies rebuilding, the Banking Clans securing the confederacy’s capital and the chaotic nature or centralized economies of the rest of the Galaxy, the CIS has the potential to expand quickly and possible become the standard credit within time.

Next came talks on security. As an economic confederation, the CIS currently has no standing military other than what member worlds can supply or defend themselves with. However, because of the news of Coruscant, one of the most powerful economic centers in the Galaxy falling to the Mandalorians without a prior warning, the CIS was naturally concerned where the Mandalore is planning his next conquest or what other faction may try to follow that example.

Pirates are also a large concern for several of the systems such as Zonama Sekot which is on a hyperspace route notorious for piracy with many of their freighters falling victim and stretching the planets meager militia to keep the lanes clear, though the ability for the planet to move and the large force of Yuuzhan Vong living at the system has kept the planet itself so far clear from attack. Shaka proposed that new technological advances from his companies could help bolster the security already in place, and Eusebio stated that the CMC would be willing to share advances in freighter technology also, which may help deal with smaller problems such as pirates so the CIS could focus on the bigger picture.

For the next meeting a possible mutual protection plan is scheduled to be put on the table along with intelligence reports of the state of the rest of the Galaxy and maybe the offer by the banking clans after they were able to speak with each member system. Also the members stated they would provide information on hyperspace routes and docking stations, both public and private, that each member could use to trade and transport goods. The observers may also offer to join, but only time will see. With that the meeting was adorned and will meet once again on Zonama Sekot.
