The La'uo system (formally known as Virtus) is a Xi'an star system and former Perry Line system. It was ceded from the United Empire of Earth to the Xi'an Empire as a result of the Perry Line Pact in 2793. The system features an expanding red giant. It is also known for his officially-sanctioned piracy.


'The Xi'an Empire authorizes select criminal gangs to operate under certain conditions. That does not mean it is a lawless system. Unauthorized criminals caught operating here will incur the wrath of both the Xi'an government and the system's sanctioned gangs.'[1]

Gravitational governors


Virtus is a expanding red giant (spectral type: M) star. His type is called by the starmap 'Giants-Giant-M'.


Virtus I

A planet that has been evaporating away since the star entered the red giant phase.[2]

Virtus II

The red giant star has turned Virtus II into a lava planet. Heavy mining and production facilities are built between massive lava flows. Many of these facilities are hard labour camps populated with Xi'an prisoners. Sentient rights activists in the UEE frequently pressure the government to reproach the Xi'an over the practice.[3]

Virtus III

A smog planet with a rapidly rising surface temperature due to the increased heat from the system's red giant.[4]

Virtus IV

A gas giant with a turbulent atmosphere plagued by electrical storms.[5]

Asteroid Belts

Virtus Belt Alpha

Comprised of smaller asteroids, the Xi'an mining consortiums prefer to build stations on the fringe of the belt from which to launch their mining operations.[6]

Virtus Belt Beta

There are no visible mining operations active in this belt, indicating that perhaps they are still surveying.[6]
