- "The Rond were one of the mid-grade Cetagandan Constellations, though that was like saying ‘one of the mid-grade billionaires.’"
- ―Ivan's thoughts on the Rond[src]
The Rond were a haut Constellation of the Cetagandan Empire, though something of a junior group that was seeking advancement. During the time period covered in Cetaganda, the haut governor of Rho Ceta, Este Rond, was a member of the genetic group, though his replacement by the time of Diplomatic Immunity was a Degtiar (presumably, the former haut governor was quietly retired following the events of Cetaganda).
