The distance rule is there to curb the maximum size of a Sybil region as well as that of the monetary community as a whole. The `xpercent` parameter prevents the creation of a ‘faction’ that could take hold of the blockchain.

The Sybil regions are isolated from the rest of the graph in the sense that they can only receive certifications from other ill-intentioned Sybil members. As a consequence, the shortest edge/path between a legitimate member and a Sybil one has to have the attack’s author as an endpoint. The maximum depth the Sybil region can attain is therefore contingent on the distance between the attacking edge-s- and the xpercent% closest referent members, this distance is known as `stepAttackers`.
The maximum size of a Sybil region created by `sigQty` members depends on the L parameter, defined as L = sigQty/sigStock:

Our goal with the Ğ1 is to create a community of about one million members enjoying the world’s first true [catallaxy]( -free economy with a spontaneous order of things-. Let’s see how we can tweak the pair of sigQty and stepMax- to reach this size:

The maximum size of a Sybil region grows linearly with `sigQty` but exponentially with `stepMax`. Logic has it that we need to keep `stepMax` as low as possible to ensure sufficient strength to the web. The above graph shows that the lowest value of `stepMax` for a web of a million members is of 5. This is an order of magnitude and is likely to be much higher in reality, we cannot measure it for sure.

Here is a graph showing the evolution of a Sybil region with the variation of `sigPeriod`:

As you’ll easily be able to tell, there is a strong link between the growth speed of the region and `sigPeriod`. As evidenced here, we need a `sigPeriod` high enough in order to ensure that the legitimate web can grow at least as fast as a Sybil region.
In addition, the higher `sigPeriod` is, the more members will exercise their certification power gingerly, the action coming at a higher ‘cost’.
