What would the Imperium be without Chiev? Well it certainly wouldn't be such a superpower, that's for sure.
Chiev was a major holding within the Odestrian Imperium. Originally settled in 4000 BBY, the planet was found to have a vast amount of minerals and resources which seemed to be virtually endless. Its two moons, Fullicium and Decarium also were packed to the brim with resources, allowing for Chiev to become the major trade center in the Imperium next to Odestria itself.
