Barabek is a nonindustrial, rich, agricultural world with improving living conditions due to a bustling agro-economy.

  • As an agricultural world, this world is a near-ideal environment for producing quality foodstuffs of plant, animal, and other forms. Quality foodstuffs are a major export commodity for this world.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • This is a rich world with a prosperous and thriving world economy.
  • Its economy is bustling and an increase in living conditions is expected in the near future.
  • This a "low technology" world with technology competency well below technology standards for Charted Space.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Orowan Subsector of Halcyon Sector.

System Data[edit]

Basa-Barabek System[edit]

The primary is Basa, an ordinary yellow main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 1.21 Sols, a mass of 1.04 Sols and a diameter of 1.433 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a vacuum worldlet, (II) a vacuum inner world, and (III) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world. (IV) Barabek orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (V) a sparse stony planetoid belt, (VI) a small gas giant, (VII) a small ice giant, (VIII) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, and (IX) a ringed large gas giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

(IV) Barabek[edit]

(IV) Barabek is designated the mainworld and orbits Basa at a mean distance of 0.98 AU (146.6 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 347 days 11 hours and a rotation period of 19.75 hours. The axial tilt is 17.5 degrees. Barabek has a diameter of 7,825 km, a density of 4.79 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.53 G. It is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Dense, with a mean surface pressure of 1.75 bar and a composition of 77% nitrogen, 22% oxygen, and 1% argon, carbon dioxide, neon and other trace gases. Approximately 72% of the surface is covered in oceans of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.75m. Mean surface temperature: 26°C. The atmosphere is dynamic and powerful weather systems, driven by the star and the oceans, sweep across the globe. The climate is seasonal.

Satellites:[edit]

Barabek retains a single natural satellite, a small ice-capped vacuum worldlet named Bubusa:

(IVa) Bubusa (UWP Y101000-0, orbits at 20 Diameters/157,000 km)

Mainworld geography and topography[edit]

Total surface area: 192 million km², Land surface area: 54 million km², Water surface area: 138 million km².

Native lifeforms[edit]

Barabek, the mainworld, has extensive and abundant native life, with organisms inhabiting every ecological niche. The local flora has a tendency towards tall narrow stems and flat leaves: foliage is generally dark green in colour. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.
