Humanoid society native to planet Argratha.  The Argrathi had an unusual form of punishment for criminals that involved implating memories into the accused's brain.  These memories would cause the criminal to have effectively experienced years of brutal incarceration, when in reality, no actual prison time was served, thereby saving the Argrathi government the cost of building and operating prisons.  In 2372, Miles O'Brien was accused of espionage and implanted with the memory of a 20-year prison sentence.  (Hard Time -DS9).
Star Trek: The Encyclopedia (1999 edition).

A humanoid people whose government, the Argrathi Authority, punishes offenders by enforced, virtual memories of a prison stay modeled to fit their personalities. Perhaps a bit jumpy, they grew suspicious when O'Brien sincerely asked questions about their technology in 2372 - and then imprisoned him.
