Ganeshan society is a prime example of macro-life...splinter gorups hollow out asteroids and go a'roving. Since they are splinter groups, they are extremely diversified. An oath of loyalty to Home binds them together, and when they enter and explore a system, they are honor bound to set up a laser cannonand beam their accumulated info back to Ganesha. As a consequence, Ganesha itself has one of the greatest libraries and information centers around. Ganeshan society is some twelve thousand years old, and ganeshan asteroids have explored a volume of space between one hundred and one hundred and fifty cubic light years in volume. Asteroids often have prearranged meetings in inhabited system, to exchange knwledge. A gravitic "bell" rings out news to marcolife ships from Ganesha. Their inhabitants tend to have even more neuroses than human society, and occasional flashes of berserker rage are expected. There are asteroids which are rogues, anarchists who defy the Ganeshan system and each other.
They rejected the Edenite drive--their inborn conservative nature of their society, which takes hundreds of years to make a general change, plus distrust of what Edenites intended with drive. Cult of holy assassins lurk in outer planets. There are four classes of Ganethans--priests, nobility/soldiers, tradespeople, and slaves. Gambling a vice among many, and such gambling often determines who rules.
