After a long war with Durnarth, Holador III fell under Tarolagondian rule. The government on Holador III reflects its tribal beginnings, with the seat of power being hereditary. The High Lord of Holador III must always adhere to religious dogma, however, including frequent and lavish offerings to the father-like desert god and his priests. As well, the High Lord can be challenged by lesser warlords for power. The entire feudal system operates on a water-based economy so that lesser lords are awarded water rights which are then distributed to the lesser castes through trade and labor. There is a single legally operated spaceport at the capital city and through it, the government and church authorities attempt to regulate the importation of technology. A thriving black market exists, however, mainly controlled by Hutt representatives.
