Argona is an icy, nonindustrial world, whose surface is ice-capped and with nearly all of its water frozen.
- It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society.
- It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the The Borderland Subsector of Trojan Reach Sector.
- However, because most Imperial escorts use a J-3 shortcut to Acrid (2722), Argona is a prime system for pirate attacks.
