Joyeuse is a preindustrial, agricultural world.

  • As an agricultural world, this world is a near-ideal environment for producing quality foodstuffs of plant, animal, and other forms. Quality foodstuffs are a major export commodity for this world.
  • As a preindustrial world, this planet cannot yet manufacture enough high-technology resources to support a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world. Government control of this world is by an external military force. This world designated as an Amber Zone. Caution is advised since the world has an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions that are not well understood and might be a danger to a visitor. It is a member of Regency of Deneb in the Sword Worlds Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector.
  • This world is an Interface world, with a quarantine inspection facility for all ships.
  • This world hosts a Regency Military Base, Supporting military ground forces. 

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

Joyeuse contains temperate plains and rolling hills. The lifestyle of the majority of the inhabitants has changed little for centuries. Dry conditions and the Broedsaed Mange (a wide variety of fungal plagues) make it very difficult for Joyeuse to grow enough food to support even a small population. This has prevented Joyeuse from becoming more than a frontier world.

Binary Solar System[edit]

"Gallas" Secondary Red M9 V


System Data[edit]

Joyeuse has two stars, the primary Karl and its companion, Gallas. Joyeuse has a 3:2 resonance orbit with its close primary at a distance of 0.06 AU. Joyeuse's year is a scant 12 days long, which in combination with the planet's slow rotation means that it goes through a very hot "daysummer" of constant sun and a freezing "nightwinter" of constant darkness.

  • Thoslinn, the next planet out from Joyeuse, is the site for the largest and most heavily fortified military base and training facility in the Confederation.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The capital city of Virodby is located on the southern edge of the small continent of Arvildsvaten. Joyeuse's starport, Svelund, is located on an island northwest of Virodby.
