Former Li Vis
Official text extracted from Panzer Dragoon Orta.
The former nation state that used to be situated on the northern border of the Empire was known for its oasis-like lands in the midst of a vast desert. A long established nation of hunters and gatherers, these relatively primitive people were annexed by the Empire in Imperial Year 45.
The Empire had moved into the area under the pretense that it was purging the region of bio-engineered creatures, and before the people of Li Vis realized it, the Empire had completely occupied their lands and claimed them in the name of the Emperor.
