Flammarion is a poor, nonindustrial world.

  • As a nonindustrial world, it requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. The need to import most manufactured and high technology goods drives the price of these goods up in the open market.
  • This world has few prospects for economic development.

Flammarion holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world.
