Hilarion is an Imperial Agri World in the Calixis Sector.[Needs Citation]


The Planet is ruled by the Council of Seven Colours. The majority of the population of Hilarion is composed of the peasant and serf classes (with little distinction between the two). They work in service to the Noble Houses and toil to produce spices and incense for their Lords, who then export them off world, although this is not known to the peasants – they simply believe that the Emperor requires their labour.[Needs Citation]

Hilarion is populated by a majority of peasants. A smaller number of Nobles make up the ruling class while the balance of the populace is a very small percentage of Serfs, who have become indentured for failure to meet their contractual obligations of service and provide for their families. The technology level is mostly medieval, although the Noble Houses have a small number of devices that would be seen in the wider Imperium.[Needs Citation]

The Ecclesiarchy has perhaps the highest level of technology on the planet, used for their religious requirements, and to provide a means to oversee the Noble Houses and the production of their important crops.[Needs Citation]

The Serfs and Peasants use barter amongst themselves for the majority of transactions although occasionally they may come to possess some of the "Imperials" or "Eagles" (the local coins). The Noble Houses will deal with one another, using barter or coin: Imperials, Eagles or even "Throne Gelt," although this is less common.[Needs Citation]

Seven Eagles constitute an Imperial, and three Imperials constitute a Throne Gelt. The economy is stable, feudal and balanced, with no House holding unfair advantage over another, as all the Houses are bound by blood, and ruled under the statute of the Council of Colours.[Needs Citation]

Contact with other worlds

Hilarion is not well known outside the Hazeroth subsector; in fact the existence of the planet is not widely publicised so as to protect it from unsanctioned traffic. All planetary trade must be processed by the Quarantine station on the smaller "moon" and only selected Traders holding an Ecclesiarchal charter are permitted to send Landers down to collect trade and tithe goods – these vehicles must only land in designated zones, and are supervised during their entire planetfall by an observer from the Orders Famulous.[Needs Citation]
