An independent world in Quadrant 1. Member of the Free Worlds Alliance. Nose has a Xyonist-style bi-cameral and federal government with a 10 member High Council (Hakamim) and 50 member Parliament (Sanhedrin). Strongly commercialistic, the Nosers are very involved in interstellar trade. Sometimes to the exclusion of other matters of common interest. Some regard them as a bit soft on pirates.
In 3207 the Prime Minister was Moises Portie.

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