Terrakrats bet on the advantages conferred by chrono engines. In comparison to other races they chose a policy of colonization establishing control over the richest in resources planets. Majority of planets were inhabited only by a small group of colonists. Therefore, only the central colonies were densely populated and well protected, while a huge number of poorly protected stellar systems on boundaries of growing empire were in danger of invasions. Empire incredibly expanded and was easy prey for the enemy so the expansion was discontinued. Terrakrats were able to retain most of their territories, but for this purpose the economy and scientific development was focused on defensive strategy. The main task of the Terrakrats became the withholding of previously captured resources. Owners of planets received many rights and freedoms in managing their worlds in remote stellar systems that hardly controlled by the central government.
Due to the significant disunity of the nation, scientific progress is uneven and brings a considerable difference in lifestyle and technologies of Terrakrats from different parts of the empire. Numerous rulers of planets thanks to privacy and complete freedom are engaged in what they want and occasionally only taxes to unified empire remind them of belonging to common ancestors. Lords rulers are almost unlimited in their power concerning own planets, and therefore many poorly-inhabited colonies immersed into slavery, where people throughout their lives, can not save up money for space escape. Meanwhile rulers lose in gambling their planets to each other, and compete in ingenuity in social experimentation over the humiliated people. Over time, space fleet became the only means of communication and holding different parts of the empire together. Space Fleet is the only way for the central government to preserve the unity of the people. Therefore, space superiority over the centuries is the basic idea of Terrakrats who compensate technological fragmentation by reserves and quality of resource abundance.
