Spacer clans

Spacer clans are societies founded or dominated by spacers. They are each distinct from the others but they have features in common:
• Historically, they earned their living by trading using    spacer ships to transport goods
• They all still have a tradition of requiring their young    males to space from the age of fourteen until about forty
• Apply the spacer code differently to those within the    clan than to those outside the clan
• Had a period in their history when they worked to give    themselves a cultural identity that was distinct from the    other clans

• Still do not allow their females to space, which means    that the settled populations are predominately women
• Are lead by a single family
