Malwa is a planet settled by Indian settlers around 2400, fleeing persecution in the Inner Sphere. They largely managed to safe some of their knowledge, but with only three dropships and a jumpship rented for the job, they were unable to carry much in the way of material that could help them in their new settlement.
As such, when the technology broke down, the settlement had to make do with less advanced technology and the technological level stabilized at a late 18th century level. Additionally, the leadership of the settlement reinstated the Caste system, mostly to preserve their power, but also to stabilize the society.
To defend against occasional pirate raids, the Malwa have a small, but professional military largely made up of the Sikh part of the population fleeting to Malwa.
