Kotoku I

Kotoku I is a terrestrial world in the Kotoku System and is the smallest population center in the Kowloon region of space. It is part of the Kowloon.

As the Dukedom of Kotoku is new and lacking any political pull, Kotoku I is rarely patrolled by the Shield of Kowloon. Kotoku I is nominally ruled by The Duke of Kotoku. Settlement began as a splinter group of Hanefolk settling on the planet after the Second Xeno war. Over time, other settlers, such as Muoshio and Taianese, also came to reside in Veľké Mesto Soľného Jazera, or Jazera for short, and is the main settlement on Kotoku I. The result is a planet diverse in population cohabiting in a single settlement.

The main settlement of Jazera is formed as an ecclesiocracy, where the religious leaders assume a leading role in the state, but do not claim that they are instruments of divine revelation. The current Duke, While the nominal head of the system and the direct representative of the monarchy seated in Asura, must juggle the clergy of the settlement, Who see to the day to day operations, city planning, and crime prevention.

Jazera (Capital City)

Veľké Mesto Soľného Jazera, or Jazera for short wasn't so much built in a day as it was raised around a grounded, colony ship called the Ziariace Kopca. Initially used by the first Hanefolk settlers in 3013 GSC to survive the first winter, It now serves as the central fixture of the burgeoning city, the bay doors usually open, the ship's interior partially converted to government offices as well as the home of the Duke when he is planet side. Nestled at the mouth of the Sladká Rieka, the city is grown around the Bay of Stedrosť. It is blessed with miles of beautiful, sandy-white beaches and azure waters, along which is built one of the most famous landmarks of the area, Chrám zmŕtvychvstalého Spasiteľa (The Temple of the Risen Savior)

Chrám zmŕtvychvstalého Spasiteľa (Temple of the Risen Savior)

Located near the center of Jazera, Chrám zmŕtvychvstalého Spasiteľa is the center of all religious activity in the city. It's a particularly popular destination for wedding couples as it features Eight striking vertical granite pillars connected with stone and mortar flying buttresses and faced with local white marble. To enhance the beauty of the structure, the Temple is situated in the middle of a beautiful natural preserve & garden called the P'enn Gardens. The Temple is notable for being one of the only places outside former Matriarchy space to hold traditional Hanefolk wedding ceremonies, and is so named for the ancient tradition of gem & semi-precious stone offerings to adequately display the depths of one's affection for another.

Temple Square is a 10-acre (4.0 ha) complex, owned by The Church of The Risen Savior, in the center of Jazera, kotoku I. Contained within Temple Square are the Chrám Zmŕtvychvstalého Spasiteľa with a floor area of 253,015 sq ft (23,506 m2) and a height of 222 ft (68 m), Chrámový príbytok (The Savior's Tabernacle), Jazera Assembly Hall, the Pamiatka Cajok (Seagull Monument), and two community centers.

Civilian cargo shipping is primarily provided by trinary starshipping, which has a storefront in Jazera.

Some Hanefolk settlers moved into Kotoku in 3013 GSC.

In 6 3017 GSC the system became part of Kowloon, which attracted a significant number of settlers seeking to stake their claim in the new nation, or to exploit the lack of oversight by Tai Pan With a large number of displaced Huoshio “free” from the guidance of the Hanefolk elders, many female Huoshio immigrated to Kotoku I, hearing of a promised land offering safety, security, and prosperity. A large influx of settlers, comprised of Humans, Huoshio, and even a few Hanefolk, to the Kotoku system as a whole as well as to Kotoku I's single organized colony, Jazera, necessitated the instatement of a Duke to the system. The man chosen was both the oldest being in the system as well as the first inhabitant, Glynvalur Starhearth.
