New Sydney is a heavily Agricultural System. Its people are not too deeply attached to the rest of society, but they do swear fealty to The Holy Roman Church. The System has a rotating System Lord position that is voted on by a parliament.
New Sydney is a rather boring corner of the Galaxy, but it survives mostly due to its seemingly endless supply of food. It is often targeted for aggression from other systems, but The Church only allows a few conflicts with the largest breadbasket in the Galaxy, and most of those are solved without any shots actually being fired.
As a result of their relatively passive approach to any Intersystem disputes, former citizens of New Sydney can be found in the Labor Enclaves of many other systems, especially those who chose war as a way to overcome bouts of famine.
