Chandrila is a planet in the Pocket Universe whose population is composed of a slight majority of Humans, but also includes people of many other races.

It in the past 5000 years it has alternated between being controlled by the New Shi'ar Imperium and the Sontaran Dominion 10 times.

Local government is vested in the popularly elected Chandrila House along with a planetary governor appointed by the Shi'ar Imperial Sovereign or the Sontaran Emperor (or his Council of Advisors that's part of the Dominion government).

Personal freedoms are somewhat freer under the Shi'ar Imperium than under the Sontarans, and in those periods of time Chandrila is under Sontaran rule, COMPNOR actively pressures the local population to publically support the Dominion.
