Mu Ceta was one of the eight core planets of the Cetagandan Empire.
Like the other eight planets of the Empire, Mu Ceta was governed by a satrap, appointed by the Emperor, and a planetary consort, appointed by the Empress. At the time of Cetaganda, the governor of Mu Ceta was a member of the Degtiar genetic constellation, a relative of the late Dowager Empress Lisbet Degtiar and half-uncle to the haut Fletchir Giaja. He was described as old and cautious, and appointed specifically to calm the fears of Vervain following the attempted Cetagandan invasion of that planet. Presumably after the events of the book, he was not reappointed to another governorship.
