Ispeth is a poor, non-agricultural and industrial high-population hellworld with a billion or more sophonts in size who still struggle to survive in an inhospitable environment.

  • This world is a "Twilight Zone World", a planet that is tidally-locked to its primary world, giving a hot pole, a cold pole and a twilight zone in-between.
  • It is a member world of the Korsumug Empire located in the Shimmerskip Subsector of Mavuzog Sector.
  • About 30% of the population is composed of baseline humans.
  • About 70% of the population is composed of Jaibok.
