Planetary History[edit]

Early History[edit]

Nihal was one of a number of client states that joined the Capellan Hegemony in the 2280s and 2290s, and presented the Hegemony with a number of problems - the most significant of which was that as a far-flung client state of the Hegemony, Nihal could only be reached via special transit arrangements between the Capellan and Sian governments.[1] By the time the Capellan Confederation came into being in 2367 Nihal had switched allegience from the Capellan government to the Sian Commonwealth.[2]
