SK - Saeed Khalifate

In 2130 Shi'ite fundamentalists on the Outworld settlements of Abu Haman and Sad Al Bari declared themselves independent from the IF. IF troops sent to suppress the rebellion defected instead, and the two colonies declared the formation of the Saeed Khalifate under the banner of Mullah Saeed ibn Aamir. The Khalifate soon turned to using its armed forces as mercenary units for hire to raise hard currency, and within a short period, their forces earned a reputation "of being among the toughest units in Human space."
