Iur is a world suited to becoming an agricultural world, but with a population between 10,000 and 100,000 sophonts, but lacks the capability to produce or process sufficient resources to export its projected agricultural produce. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Zeda Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Amec Trade Protectorate and the Domain of Vland. Iur, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight and a baronet. Both are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. During the Long Night this world was named Miadnir. The Nahuatl name of the world is Tepanec.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

The planet has been eco-engineered to enable thousands of crops to be grown in its soil. The dense atmosphere creates a greenhouse effect which enhances the growth rate. The only side effect to the altered ecosystem has been the atmospheric taint cause by mutated spores. These spores cause migraine-like attacks in Aslan and euphoria in humans. Filter masks are worn at all times.
