Poor, low population extraction economy (anarchy).
LP 98-132 is an anarchic system with a solitary small M2V type dim red star. There isn't a lot here, though there is some mining of valuable minerals like cobalt, rutile and coltan, and very occasionally of gold. Piracy is rife here with pirates on the lookout for those high value cargoes. There is a station called Freeport operated by a group of locals, and this is the nearest thing to law that exists in the system.

— In-Game Description

It is unusual to find a non-mined-out mineral-rich system so close to Sol (only 40 or so light years away), but it was many centuries before anyone even noticed the asteroid belt was there, so far from the star. Ever since the system has been claimed and counter-claimed by numerous warlords and ne’er-do-wells, and the perpetual state of anarchy that has existed ever since has held down the numbers of ships mining here. The gold is far less plentiful than it was in the early days, but small finds are still made from time to time, and the high price of coltan (a mix of the ores columbite and tantalite, from which tantalum is made, a highly-prized transition metal used in high tech and in tiny quantities in specialist alloys) especially, still makes it worthwhile for some. Piracy is rife here with pirates on the look-out for those high value cargoes. There is a station Freedom City operated by group of locals, and this is the nearest thing to law that exists in the system.[1]
