Even the planetary government and social structure could not ignore Alderaanian impact. A nine-member council ruled over Delaya in a political sense, representing each of the nine Alderaanian Houses that controlled portions of Delaya. This planetary council in turn reported to the Alderaanian Viceroy, who controlled the entire sector.
For twenty-seven thousand years, Delaya followed Alderaan closely, but culturally and militarily. When the Clone Wars toppled the Republic, Delayan independence factions seized the initiative and joined the anti-Republic factions, fighting the Alderaanian forces stationed on Delaya. After many cities were destroyed and countless millions of individuals died, Delaya became an independent world, free of Alderaanian interest.
Now, as Alderaan moves towards peace, Delaya is known as a fortress planet. Eleven regional governors control the planetary government, and Delaya is now known as an isolated fortress in the center of a peaceful mind. Ignoring Alderaanian and Imperial influence, Delaya proves self-sufficient as it completely ignores the galaxy.
If one can smuggle themselves through the Delayan defenses, then they can enjoy the beautiful Pamkaio Island, situated in the northern ocean. Pamkaio was well-known as a tourist attraction, but the resorts are now overgrown parts of a forest. In a dilapidated and militaristic society, peaceful Alderaanian-influenced minds can barely survive on the weakened Delaya.
