Planetary History[edit]

The citizens of the Free Worlds League have been known for their love of gambling and games of chance for centuries. The highest examples of this passion can be found on the world of Kyeinnisan or, as it is better known as, The Gambler's World. Within the many lavish, smoke filled casinos and gambling halls, every game of chance known to man can be found as well those willing to bet it all for a chance at wealth.

Kyeinnisan has escaped the worst of the fighting during the Succession Wars due to its position between The Protectorate and the Principality of Regulus. This fact, plus being an independent world separate from the many power plays of larger League members, has made it the center of gambling within the League and a top spot for gamblers across the Inner Sphere.[31] Wolf's Dragoons invaded in 3014 during Anton's Revolt, but respected Kyeinnisan neutrality and spent their occupation period gambling peacefully. When the Fourth Regulan Hussars attacked, seeking to destroy the First Orloff Grenadiers in 3146, they carelessly damaged protected businesses, bringing the Holy Rollers into the battle.

One would think that on a world dedicated to individuals risking everything they own that the crime would be a persistent problem. However, Kyeinnisan can boast having the lowest crime rate within the Free Worlds League. This is mainly due to the large and highly trained security force on world called the Holy Rollers. Every business owner pays a special fee to support this force for it has proven frighteningly efficient. Those operations who do not pay are not harassed or brutalized. Their establishments are simply not patrolled or monitored.[32] Those convicted to cheating in games of chance are subject to hefty fines and up to three years' imprisonment on the lunar penal colony.

Surveyed in 2168, the world was settled by colonists from Myanmar in 2257. Its remarkably short transit to the jump point made it a preferred hub for traders plying the routes between the Marik Commonwealth, Principality of Regulus and Federation of Oriente, turning the world into a major trading port and logistics center for the nascent Free Worlds League. As trade eclipsed the traditional agrarian economy, the hospitality center of Luck City eclipsed the original capital of Sittwe, and became the new capital when the world's wealthiest families arranged a referendum in 2485 to replace the colonial assembly with the Council of 108, placing the world under oligarchic rule. Each year, the planetary elites bid for spots on the council, ensuring that the wealthiest remain in positions of power. Those entwined with scandal, no matter how rich, may still be ejected, as were Houses Lottimer and Jaggoda in 3057, and Regulan-aligned Houses after the failed Regulan invasion of 3146.

Buddhism predominates, though early influence of Regulan traders has led to near-universal veneration of Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of luck. The festivals of Diwali and Thadingyut are the most important of the calendar, and gambling during those periods is considered a sacred act of devotion to Lakshmi.
