This planet is a sad example of planetary regression. Its environmental systems all but gone, it survived by contracting Samaran merchants to provide low-level maintenance in exchange for free cargoes of ore. However, as hardship increased, so did anarchy. Before long, pirates started patronizing the system.

Now a thriving corsair haven, Dema's entire economy revolves around its dangerous clientèle. "Marriages" between corsairs and locals are frequent, which bodes well for the continued maintenance of the planet's environmental systems. This intermarriage, frequently involuntary, is a source of sadness for the inhabitants, though they hide their sorrow behind eager, ingratiating smiles when the next ship load of raiders comes to call.
