Originally founded as the Ghost Bear Dominion in 3060 it later changed its name to the Rasalhague Dominion with the official union with its "equal but separate" symbiotic/protectorate state, the Free Rasalhague Republic, in the year 3103. It is located between the Wolf and Hell's Horses Clan Occupation Zones and the Draconis Combine, comprising of 71 inhabited systems and an estimated 280 billion population . The executive capital, home of the Elected Prince, is located in a city called Asgard on the planet of Rasalhague, while the parliamentary capital, home of the Dominion Council, as well as the capital of the Dominion's Clan population, is located in the city of Silverdale on the planet Alshain. The national symbol is a white roaring bear heard, set against a dark blue triangle. The government is a Republic, with Clan warrior-caste styling, under the Dominion Council and ruled by Prince Hjalmer Miraborg and Khan Dalia Bekker.
The official languages in the Rasalhague Dominion are English and Swedish, with Swedenese, Japanese and German influences. The different influential religions are Lutheran Christian, Shinto, Atheism, and Neo-Norse. The Dominion currently uses the Bear-krona as it's unit of currency (1 Bear-krona is 2.83 C-bills). Ironically, the Ghost Bears have become a victim of their own success. Having fully brought their entire clan from the Kerensky Cluster and succeeding in integrating their people into the Inner Sphere, the Ghost Bears have become an key economic power within the Inner Sphere. Unfortunately, this "success" is seen as a failure by the more "traditional" elements within the clan who feel that the Ghost Bears have lost their way...they have not succeeded in retaking Terra, they have not re-established the Star League so they have failed. The Ghost Bears have reached a cross-roads in regards towards their destiny. The Traditionalists want to go back to what they see as the vision set down by Nicholas Kerensky, and yet an equal number of Ghost Bears believe they have achieved Kerensky's dream of returning to the Inner Sphere and do not want to destroy what they have built by returning to "the old ways". Only time will tell how this situation will play out as these dual philosophical differences continue to clash with each other.
