Ergo (TR 2625) is an agricultural, nonindustrial, pre-rich garden world with a near-ideal, utopian environment conducive to most sophonts, but still lacks an adequate population to expand its economy to a rich status.

  • 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.
  • Its economy and population are rapidly growing and living conditions are expected to quickly rise barring outside forces.
  • This a "forbidden" world designated as a Red Zone with an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions that make it extremely dangerous to visitors. Everyone is forbidden to travel here.
  • This a "low technology" world with technology competency well below technology standards for Charted Space.
  • This is a temperate world, with a climate of pleasant, average temperatures, considered to be an ideal or near-ideal environment by many different sophont species.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the The Borderland Subsector of Trojan Reach Sector.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Ergo is a non-aligned, agricultural garden world located in the The Borderland Subsector of the Trojan Reach.

  • The system has been assigned a Red Zone travel advisory.

Ergo had a thriving pre-stellar society prior to 802, when the General Development Company (GeDeCo) contacted the world, offering to help fund the construction of a starport. Ergo's ruling body, the Council of Barons, agreed to the proposal but internal disputes over trade and tax revenues escalated until the Council dissolved into a handful of warring feudal states. GeDeCo withdrew from the starport proposal and the ensuing civil war lasted more than a century, with 90% of the population wiped out from famine, starvation, and nuclear winter. The only civilized area of Ergo is now a small region surrounding the ruins of the starport, while the rest of the planet is a hostile mix of radioactive wasteland, cannibal tribes, and pirate bases.

The population has stabilized at 485,000 humans, spread across the world's major continent, with most settlements in the northeast.

  • They have regressed to TL–3, and have a tribal society, with no real laws or government.

The Imperium maintains two automated interdiction satellites in orbit around Ergo, with teams checking them every 5 years.

  • They were installed in 1051 in order to protect the natives from their higher-tech neighbors, and visitors from the hostile natives.
