Era: New Era
Aiaoheah is a nonindustrial, rich water world, which has 90% or more of its surface covered in an ocean of water.
- As a nonindustrial world, it requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. The need to import most manufactured and high technology goods drives the price of these goods up in the open market.
- As a rich world, this planet has high-grade living conditions and is highly sought after by immigrating sophonts. It is a member of Regency of Deneb in the Glisten Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector. This world is an Interface world, with a quarantine inspection facility for all ships. 100% of the world's population is the Major Race Aslan.
Approximately 99% of the planet's surface is covered with ice, though there is just enough temperature variation to allow for isolated melting, especially at the equator.
