Hokkaido is a place of constant fighting between Kusari government and the Blood Dragons, supported by the terrorist group Golden Chrysanthemums which have a small base here. For the outlaws in this System, there are two main targets: the automatic gas mining stations, which produce H-Fuel, a main export product for Kusari; the construction of a new Aegira's Jump Gate which should lead directly into the centre of the Chugoku system. The Gate is an attempt by Kusari Naval Forces, to bypass the Blood Dragons external defences and open a way for direct attack on Kyoto. Naturally, the Blood Dragons are doing everything to destroy its construction.
Lesser known is that Golden Chrysanthemums (a terrorist group consist of only women) are one of the best smuggling groups. Their base (know as Ainu Depot) is one of a few sources for the most expensive BMG commodity: the Station Blueprint, which can be found in all Sirius.
