The 5th Outrim War: Eanzhshent Geithurebr Epliavlefr - The Republic of Geithur Naval Force

The Geithurian Republic is an alliance of ten non-Imperial systems in the Lymethius subsector, and a member polity of the Outrim Alliance. With a total population of 101.121 billion sophonts, the Republic is dominated by humans of mixed Zhodani, Solomani and Vilani origin (99.2% of the population). Non-human Minor Races (Aaronites of Lysarnor and Tharoysa of Dysa Metharoth, plus smaller sophont groups) make up about 0.7% of the total population.
While supposedly a democratic alliance, in reality the Council of the Geithurian Republic has been dominated by the Edlchtel Clan, hereditary Konzevrs of Appaer and Presidents of the Republic, for the last two centuries. Of Zhodani origin, the Edlchtels have driven both the Geithurian Republic's, and the Outrim Alliance's, opposition to Imperial expansion into Lymethius Subsector.

The Geithurian Republic has a Navy budget of TCr14.222 The bulk of the shipbuilding for the Navy passes through the Tech Level 12 yards of Appaer. TCr0.142 is deducted from the Navy Budget to maintain bases and support personnel. While the Trillion Credit Squadron rules suggest an initial start-up campaign budget of ten times the annual Navy budget, I decided to limit this initial budget to four times the annual budget, or TCr56.866.

The Geithurian Republican Navy - the Eanzhshent Geithurebr Epliavlefr, or EGE -  currently favors a tactical doctrine of Battleriders over Battleships in potential conflicts with the Imperium. With a maximum native technology level of 12, Republican planners believe that inefficiencies in Drive technology can be addressed by building Navy Combat Groups around several massive Carriers and their attendant Riders. Recently, the EGE has acquired a squadron of TL14 Carriers and Battleriders from the Hand of Ssra'Ka Aissr - a Tsalur-dominated polity in the Entorth Subsector, spinward of the Geithurian Republic.

The EGE has four main bases: Geithur (0202), Lysarnor (0302), Vermorzol (0304) and Dysa Metharoth (0601). Patrol Stations are maintained at Hiona (0206), Fiona (0602) and Jul'ni (0505). An unofficial Fleet Station is maintained in the Appaer system.

Note: Now that I have worked out the Geithurian Republican Navy with my revised and self-imposed campaign budget rules, I will have to give the 297th Imperial Fleet another pass to ensure that it complies.
