History and Background (Dossier)[edit]

The nine million inhabitants of Kharo work diligently to provide foodstuffs and other agricultural exports for the other worlds of the Kharo Cluster, as well as other nearby worlds.

World Starport[edit]

Kharo has a good quality starport.

  • A Class-B Starport Facility has not very well developed shipyards and is only capable of producing spaceships.
  • This facility has many very skilled personnel who can perform not only major repair work, but overhaul work as well.
  • This facility has advanced refueling and refining infrastructure. One may purchase practically any kind of refined fuel here.
  • Almost every starport of this class possesses both a Lowport and a Highport. Such ports rarely have more than one of each kind of port.

World Technology Level[edit]

Kharo possesses a Technology Level of TL–10 or TL-A in Hexadecimal Notation.

World Government[edit]

Kharo has a Civil Service Bureaucracy government.

  • It is a government by agencies employing individuals selected for their expertise.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Oligarchy.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Unitary State.

World Military[edit]

In a small star system without gas giants or planetoid belts, and the most technologically advanced world in the cluster, Kharo maintains a strong military presence in order to protect the local population from offworld raiders.

  • As Kharo also is home to a Star Legion base, she also benefits from ties with the Julian Protectorate, which weakens the fear of Hegemonio cruelty.
