Fieral is a preindustrial, agricultural world.

  • 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.
  • As a preindustrial world, this planet cannot yet manufacture enough high-technology resources to support a modern, star-faring society. Having to import many manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by indigenous Sophonts located in the Paradise Subsector of Halcyon Sector.

System Data[edit]

Fimorda-Fieral System[edit]

Fimorda, the system primary, is an ordinary white main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 2.584 Sols, a mass of 1.196 Sols, and a diameter of 1.742 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a trace atmosphere worldlet, (II) a vacuum worldlet, (III) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world, and (IV) a sparse stony planetoid belt. (V) Fieral orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (VI) a ringed large gas giant and (VII) a small gas giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Galadek Subsystem[edit]

The companion is Galadak, a tiny red dwarf star that orbits Fimorda at approximately 150 AU (orbital position (XII), 22.4 billion km). It has a luminosity of 0.00054 Sols, a mass of 0.07 Sols, and a diameter of 91,500 km. (I) a thin atmosphere radworld, (II) a trace atmosphere iceworld, (III) a standard atmosphere bigworld, (IV) a sparse icy planetoid belt, (V) a small ice giant, and (VI) an exotic atmosphere bigworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(V) Fieral[edit]

(V) Fieral is designated the mainworld. It orbits Fimorda at a mean distance of 1.63 AU (243.8 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 1 year 330 days and a rotation period of 22.5 hours. The axial tilt is 21 degrees. Fieral has a diameter of 13,128 km, a density of 5.70 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 1.06 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Dense, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 1.68 bar and a composition of 77% nitrogen, 22% oxygen, and 1% argon, water vapour, carbon dioxide, neon and other trace gases. The atmospheric taint is caused by spores and pollens of organic origin. Approximately 44% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.25m. Mean surface temperature: 28°C. The atmosphere is dynamic and strong weather systems driven by the star and the seas roll across the globe. The climate is seasonal.

Satellites[edit]

Fieral retains two natural satellites, a small thin atmosphere world named Guvak and an ice capped vacuum moon named Bolodor:

(Va) Guvak (UWP Y322000-0, orbiting World at 14 Diameters/184,000 km)
(Vb) Bolodor (UWP Y201000-0, orbiting World at 55 Diameters/722,000 km)

Mainworld geography and topography[edit]

Total surface area: 541 million km², Land surface area: 303 million km², Water surface area: 238 million km². The equatorial regions of the world are covered in lakes and seas of liquid water. The polar regions are rugged and arid. The Southern hemisphere, which has more large bodies of open water, is generally more hospitable.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Fieral hhas extensive, abundant native life, with complex organisms inhabiting every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal. The temperate zones are dominated by wetlands and forests, gradually giving way to broad temperate grasslands and arid polar deserts. Almost all of the native flora produces spores that saturate the atmosphere - spore concentrations are highest around the equator. Many large animals have elongated or serpentine body forms.

World Starport[edit]

Fieral has a routine quality starport.

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

World Technology Level[edit]

Fieral possesses a Technology Level of TL–7.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Early video and early satellite communication networks.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Early fuel cells, solar energy, and geothermal power sources.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Improved automobiles, hovercraft, and bullet trains.
    • Water: Hydrofoils and early triphibians.
    • Air: Hang gliders and supersonic jets.
    • Space: Deep space probes and interplanetary spacecraft (System Craft).

World Government[edit]

Fieral has a Participatory Democracy government.

  • It is a government by advice and consent of the citizen.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Democracy.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Unitary State.

    • Esaran: 150,000 (0.21% of the population), widely dispersed across the world.
    • Temelik: approximately 10,000 (less than 0.01% of the population), widely dispersed across the world.
