The Daskoxyan Republic (also known as the DXR and the Dasko Republic, in military context DKXN or DKX, and archaically as the Reijomon Alliance) is comprised of approximately 12 inhabited planets located on the outer edge of the Orion Spur of the Milky Way galaxy. Its capital is Kyyoraka, located on the planet Komatar. Daskoxyan was surrounded by a slipspace bubble for most of its existence. It is for this reason that the Daskoxyan Republic has been mostly untouched by war through many millenia and that Daskoxyan is and has been largely isolationist.
The Daskoxyan Republic was originally part of the original Human civilization before the Human-Forerunner War. The first planet to be settled was Akarydos, followed eventually by the others. The area was mostly spared by the initial Flood infestation. When the war struck and it became clear that the Humans would fall, a coalition of seven neighboring planets calling themselves the Reijomon Alliance seceded and removed all traces of their existence from memories and records via a combination of a virus and interdimensional energy sourced mainly from what is now the province of Kasana on Komatar.
"Daskoxyan" is a two-part word, comprised of "Dasko" and "Xyan". The root word "dask" means "bastard", and the root word "xyan" means "united". Thus "Daskoxyan" means "Bastards United" or "United Bastards".
The government is composed of a Primary Council of 129 representatives from each planet in the republic. The 129th member is the tiebreaker and figurehead of Daskoxyan, known as the Figurehead Councillor. The Figurehead is directly elected by the Daskoxyani citizens.
The firing of the Halo Array at approximately 100,000 BC severely weakened the fields and left the planetary fields to fend off the harmful rays. This event led to disturbances in the population where large areas went out of contact with the Kyyoraka government and led to some provincial splits and minor wars due to small cultural deviations caused by the unrest and innate rivalries. About 200 years of conflict elapsed before all areas were brought back under unified control.
Following the Firing and the subsequent situation with the provinces, Daskoxyan continued to make technological and medical advances, but mostly focused on transuniversal colonization, the arts, and philosophy. Especially after the Provincial Situation, military advances were carried out in a group of supercomputers simulating an endless war between the planets of Tanarast and Komatar. During this period, tabs were kept on emerging civilizations through a fleet of discreet drones and electronic viruses.
Approximately 102,500 years after the Firing, Daskoxyan monitored the Human-Covenant War and concluded to break cover and help their brethren. The Covenant, guided by their Luminaries, mistook the planet of Akarydos for a UNSC colony. Unfortunately for Daskoxyan, Akarydos had dissolved into civil war and general anarchy during that period and was soon glassed. Thinking that all of the Daskoxyan Republic's planets were as easy to obtain as Akarydos, and as revenge for Daskoxyan's assistance of the UNSC, the Covenant attacked the planet of Dakynyst. Unfortunately for the Covenant, this time around, Dakynyst's defenses were in a normal state of readiness and drove off the Covenant fleet within 36 hours. As a result, Daskoxyan destroyed a Covenant planet with the DKXN Ykeshah.
.....Main article: Komatar
Komatar, located in the Avesta system and the capital planet of Daskoxyan, is the most powerful of the Republic due in part to its IDE-rich regions. The planet's geography and climate is essentially Earth under advanced global warming, meaning the only ice caps to be found are on top of the highest mountains, and a deadly hot desert belt stretches along equatorial landmasses. The geology of the planet is peculiar compared to Earth's; unstable ground, mostly found offshore but with some continental intrusions, cycle through highly disruptive earthquakes which leave those regions uninhabitable.
The planet's largest city is Joron, which boasts the tallest spire in the planet. The planet's tallest freestanding structure is located in Fuuzas as the Joron spire is part of a skyscraper complex.
Tanaras (also "Tanarast"), the capital of which is Tadys, is both Komatar's main rival and its ally with which it shares the Avesta system. Two supercomputers simulationally perpetuate a minor conflict which occured during the Provincial Situation.
Akarydos, of the Reyjomon system, was the first planet of the Republic to be colonized. It was a respectable power in the age of the Reijomon Alliance but by the 2500's had fallen into civil war and general anarchy. It therefore holds the dubious distinction as the only Daskoxyani planet to fall to an enemy.
Dakynyst, in the Tezzare system, has so far been the only planet to demonstrate its defensive capabilities, driving off a Covenant attack during the war.
Also in the Tezzare system, the planet of Kyryka, uninhabitable due to indescribably intense seismic and volcanic activity, is notable for its orbital manufacturing complex known as the Ring of Kyryka. There is only one settlement on the planet, Doezenjaal, which functions as a seismic monitoring facility.
The planet of Matokyki, located in the Ensedaqi system, is uninhabitable due to indescribably intense heat, humidity, and resultant rampant fungal growth. The planet is otherwise notable mainly for its single planetside city, Rakoshys, which functions as a tourist destination. There is an orbital manufacturing complex, like Kyryka but instead more of a globe shape than a ring shape.
Dondekathyyos, in the Lykotare system, is mainly notable for its sprawling megalopolis known as Sartodalyn, the largest metropolitan area in the nation.
The Daskoxyan Republic is comprised of 72% humans, 12% San 'Shyuum, and 16% Dragons.
