An independent world in Quadrant 1. Member of the Seven Worlds Defence Alliance. Ankh does not yet had a unified colonial government. However, the five colonies on the main colony world have formed a Committee of Planetary Unity, which speaks for the colonies (most of the time). Because of the non-unitary nature of the colony's politics, it can take a while to get decision out of them - and sometimes the Committee can be deadlocked or unable to reach decisions.
In 3207 the Chair of the CPU was Armand Dayer.

In 3212 the colony gave up its independence and became a full member of the Federated Worlds of the Outer Quadrants.
