Iguna is a pre-agricultural and nonindustrial world lacking adequate development for its economy to become prosperous.

  • 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.
  • It is a member of the High Senate in the Loran Subsector of Halcyon Sector, which is part of the Distant Fringe.

System Data[edit]

Salvator-Iguna System[edit]

The primary is Salvator, an ordinary orange main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.352 Sols, a mass of 0.774 Sols, and a diameter of 1.168 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a trace atmosphere inner world, and (II) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world. (III) Iguna orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (IV) a very thin atmosphere hospitable world, (V) an exotic atmosphere stormworld, and (VI) a vacuum worldlet form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(III) Iguna[edit]

(III) Iguna is designated the mainworld. It orbits Salvator at a mean distance of 0.7 AU (104.5 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 243 days 4 hours and a rotation period of 15.5 hours. The axial tilt is 43 degrees. Iguna has a diameter of 8,353 km, a density of 5.69 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.68 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Standard, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 0.97 bar and a composition of 78% nitrogen (N2), 21% oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. The taint is caused by concentrations of airborne toxins of organic origin. Approximately 62% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.5m. Mean surface temperature: 9°C. The atmosphere is dynamic and strong weather systems driven by the star and the seas sweep across the globe. The climate is seasonal.

Satellites[edit]

Iguna retains two natural satellites, a corrosive atmosphere inferno world named Polad and an ice-capped trace atmosphere worldlet named Weiss:

(IIIa) Polad (UWP Y3B0000-0, orbiting at 45 Diameters/375,000 km)
(IIIb) Weiss (UWP Y101000-0, orbiting at 50 Diameters/420,000 km)

Mainworld geography and topography[edit]

Total surface area: 219 million km², Water surface area: 136 million km², Land surface area: 83 million km².

Native lifeforms[edit]

Iguna has extensive native life, consisting of multicellular organisms and stromatolite-parallels that can be found in almost every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal. The largest forms of fauna are armored seabed walkers weighing a few kilos that prey on soft-bodied swimmers: some species crawl onto beaches, to above the high tide point, in order to reproduce.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

World starport[edit]

Iguna 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]

Iguna 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.

World government[edit]

Iguna has a Representative Democracy government.

  • It is a government by elected representatives.
  • The typical power source of this government is a Republic.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Unitary State .
