The Virtue system was home to at least one habitable world or construct and as at 3145 was located in the Buena Province of the Lyran Commonwealth.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

System History[edit]

The Virtue system was settled during the Star League era.[3][4][5]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

During the Jihad, the Democracy Now separatist movement agitated for a new democratic state to be formed based around areas of the Alarion Province of the Lyran Alliance. The Democracy Now movement gained momentum in 3071, and in August that year Virtue experienced pro-Democracy Now demonstrations.[29][30] After the defeat of the Democratic People's Army on Novara, the leader of Democracy Now, Lindon Ashley, dropped out of sight. Ashley reappeared on Virtue on the 15th of August 3074, rallying the Democracy Now movement once more. Despite having broken the Democratic People's Army on Novara, the Kaumberg Planetary Guard were slow to respond to Ashley's reappearance [31][32]

The Kaumberg Archonette assaulted Virtue with a task force supported by hired mercenaries in late August 3075, aiming to remove the Democracy Now control over the planet. A two-week siege ended in early September with the surrender of the Democratic People's Army and Lindon Ashley was taken prisoner.[33][34]
