Ikiir is a fluid world with an oceanic geography of a liquid other than water such as ammonia, methane, hydrocarbons, or other exotic liquids. The system supports a population of fewer than 10,000 sophonts. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Old Suns Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Ikiir, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. This world has a nearby Imperial Naval Base, capable of handling warships. During the Long Night this world was named Mishsha Ka.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

The atmosphere is primarily composed of methane and carbon dioxide and great care must be taken to prevent the methane from mixing with the atmosphere within the habitats as a single spark could cause It to ignite. As a result, the long term inhabitants of Ikiir have evolved a culture where open flame is considered a unique symbol of life and is worshiped in deep temples far beneath the surface.

Point of Interest: Superconductor Research Center[edit]

A large research facility has been built on Ikiir with the prime objective of working on low temperature superconductors.

History and background[edit]

Ikiir was once a major chemical extraction site but was abandoned during the collapse of the Rule of Man.

The S'mrii ConSentiency annexed the planet in –4 and established a major research facility with the prime objective of working on low temperature superconductors. Over the centuries the research base expanded into a major manufacturing site; then in 677 new technologies rendered the entire manufactory complex obsolete.
