Elemid is a high-population, pre-rich garden world with a billion or more sophonts in population size, a near-ideal utopian environment conducive to most sophonts, and still lacks adequate population to expand its economy to a rich status.

System Data[edit]

Mimus-Elemid System[edit]

The primary is Mimus, an ordinary yellow main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 1.102 Sols, a mass of 1.02 Sols, and a diameter of 1.399 million km. The inner system consists of (II) a vacuum worldlet and (III) a dense stony planetoid belt – orbital position (I) is empty. (IV) Elemid orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (V) a thin atmosphere hospitable world, (VI) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, (VII) a trace atmosphere iceworld, and (VIII) a vacuum iceworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(IV) Elemid[edit]

(IV) Elemid is designated the mainworld. It orbits Mimus at a mean distance of 1.04 AU (155.6 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 383 days 14 hours and a rotation period of 26 hours. The axial tilt is 18 degrees. Elemid has a diameter of 11,486 km, a density of 5.84 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.95 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Dense, with a mean surface pressure of 2.2 bar and a composition of 76% nitrogen (N2), 23% oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 64% of the surface is covered in oceans of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.25m. Mean surface temperature: 19°C. The atmosphere is dynamic and powerful weather systems, driven by the star and the oceans, drive across the globe. The climate is seasonal.

Satellite:[edit]

Elemid retains a single natural satellite, an ice-capped vacuum worldlet named Kurd:

(IVa) Kurd (UWP H301000-0, orbiting at 50 diameters/574,000 km)

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 414 million km², Land surface area: 149 million km², Water surface area: 265 million km².

Native lifeforms[edit]

Elemid, the mainworld, has extensive, abundant native life, with complex organisms inhabiting every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal. The local flora has a tendency towards multiple narrow tall stems and needle-like leaves: foliage is generally green in colour. The majority of local fauna are amphibious in nature and follow the body pattern Bilateral HBS-T-LN-LN-T, with bony interiors, blood fluids, and scaly exteriors. Most local lifeforms can be digested by humans with few problems.

The cold marginally hospitable world lying in orbital position (V) (within the H+ region of the outer system) has extensive native life, consisting of minute multicellular organisms that can be found in most ecological niches. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

No information yet available.

World starport[edit]

Elemid has a poor quality starport.

  • A Class-D Starport Facility has minimal if any shipyards and can only perform extremely limited repair work.
  • This facility has many skilled personnel who can perform minor repair work.
  • This facility has refueling infrastructure and limited refining capabilities. One may purchase unrefined fuel here.
  • Starports of this class very rarely have both a Lowport and a Highport.

World technology level[edit]

Elemid possesses a Technology Level of TL–6.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Telephone, radio, and television.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Early fission power generation, advanced water and wind generation of electricity.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Improved automobiles, early ATV's, and dedicated AFV's.
    • Water: Amphibious vehicles, improved submersibles, and early SCUBA gear.
    • Air: Early jet aircraft and rotorcraft VTOL's.
    • Space: Early unmanned rocket delivery systems and early manned orbital rockets.

World government[edit]

Elemid has a Balkanized government.

  • No central ruling authority exists. Rival governments compete for control.
  • The typical power source of this government is a Balkanization.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Confederation (Anarchy).
