The purest form of communism, the U'kharik society is one of complex structure and fascism. It is one also of perfect order. In a population of over 90 billion, these qualities are very important. Every individual works for the common good. There are no official leaders among the people, & everone knows her own role to make everything run smoothly. Disruptive influences are dealt with swiftly and harshly. Most U'Kharik architecture is subterrainean with mazelike tunnels and huge communal caverns. The concepts of personal property and money are alien to the U'Kharik, but they will carry some amount of creds when dealing with other races. Extraterrestrial influence is highly curtailed by the U'Kharik ministry of alien affairs to keep as much order as is possible. An U'Kharik player character may be someone who's curious about the forbidden influence of the outside world. She may be an outcast, hunted by her sisters.
