As of 1922 PD:

- Moons of Damien - 2,000 (HH13)
The Meyers System was originally controlled by a star nation known as the Kingdom of Meyers. However, the Solarian League Office of Frontier Security eventually moved in to establish a protectorate. The royal House of Thomas was stripped of all real power, although they remained officially in charge. Meyers became the center of government for the Madras Sector.
For many years, Meyers was effectively plundered by two Solarian business conglomerates, Newman & Sons and Brindle Star, Ltd.. However, in mid-1922 PD, the Star Empire of Manticore took the system in a preemptive strike to neutralize the Madras Sector as a strategic threat to its own Talbott Quadrant. King Lawrence IX was allowed to reclaim sovereignty and form a government. The restored Kingdom of Meyers chose to ally itself with Manticore. (SI4)
