Point of Interest: Karbi Polymers[edit]

Unique chemicals which exist openly on the surface formed an extremely flexible but hard wearing natural polymer. In order to have sole rights to the material ReClaim-Tec, a Solomani plastic manufacturer entered into a partnership with the sector Duke to establish an underground colony. The polymer is manufactured into a vast number of everyday products, but best known for its production of self-heating food packs, and use in filter masks, aqua equipment, and space suits.

History and background[edit]

It was colonized late in the Rule of Man.

Karbi has remained little more than a worker's dormitory and factory site. Only a small percentage of its population are permanent residents. Under the planet's charter this group is the only segment can vote in company elections or stand for office.
