The resources of the Cyra Belt fuel the Tendril economy. Not a day goes by without Alaundril welcoming the arrival of one or more cargo vessels coming in from the belt. Their cargoes are quickly bought, processed, and fed into the industrial maw of titans such as the Ion Production shipyards. But the legal status of the miners’ claims remains muddy. If anything, claims to the Cyra Belt have become more arcane than ever.
Alaundril more or less gave up on effectively administering the claims soon after the Second Galactic War began and StarMech authority left Tendril. Now that StarMech has reestablished itself, Concord Ambassador Dmetri Demerot has made reorganization of Cyra mining a priority. The thousands of miners with claims have been variously denying StarMech’s right to the belt, pleading for Alaundril to intervene, and quietly petitioning StarMech officials to recognize their individual claims. Though Alaundril publicly claims jurisdiction, privately it leans on the Concord for help.
