The Imperial cult holds sway over the population and by decree of the ruling elite the only form of religion that is still legal. In general the populous is more apathetic than devout, though as in any large group of individuals some are more pious than others. Worship is not limited or proscribed, but the pace of life on Basoora tends to mean people have little time for devotions unless they make an effort to make time, and so once a week is the norm for those who choose to go to temple. Indeed Etheria seems to drifting away from religion altogether, the current climate of low crime, high personal wealth and confidence in science to solve all problems, has in some instance led to derision of foolish superstitions and rituals.
