Player Race: No
Relation to UFP:

- I highly doubt the Edo God would want one of the Edo to join the Federation.  Off limits as a player race.

Civilization of humanoids who inhabit planet Rubicun III.  Known for a curious mixture of hedonistic sexuality and almost puritanical respect for their law, the Edo are governed and protected by a transdimensional entity they call their god.  Many years ago, Edo society was lawless and dangerously violent.  They eventually adopted a system in which laws were enforced by a very small number of mediators (law enforcement officials) who monitored randomly selected areas called punishment zones.  Violation of any law in a punishment zone would result in immediate death.  Since no one except the mediators would know which area had been selected as a punishment zone, the system served as a strong incentive to obey all laws (Justice -TNG).
