Beater is a rich, agricultural, and nonindustrial garden world with a near-ideal, utopian environment conducive to most sophonts.

  • 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, which is easily affordable for most inhabitants of this rich world.
  • Its economy and population are rapidly growing and living conditions are expected to quickly rise barring outside forces. It is a member of Sword Worlds Confederation in the Sword Worlds Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector.
  • This world has a nearby Naval Base for support of military starships.
