|HISTORY AND NOTABLE FEATURES|
Arexex has a moderate industrial output, but that isn't why it receives the number of visitors as it does. Only about 50,000 of the population are employed by industry.

The services there employ the majority of the system's population and make vast quantities of money. The casinos were originally started in 3205 by some entrepeneurial miners. Their venture was so successful that within a year they could give up their jobs as miners, to concentrate on the casino business full time. Initially, the casinos were laregly used by the industrial workers who lived in the system, but word soon spread, and the system was a major gambling capital of the region by 3212.
Police activity near the gambling centres is very strict, and there is absolute enforcement of the no weapons rule in the starport area. You are advised to leave any weapons safely locked away in your ship.
