Khimkaa is a moderate population world, too many sophonts to be an agricultural world but not enough to be an industrial world. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Bolivar Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Khimkaa, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a baronet, and the feifdoms of a marquis, and a viscount. All four are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. During the Long Night this world was named Kaen.
Astrography and planetology
Khimkaa orbits a cool, red star and the dense CO2 atmosphere of the planet ensures temperatures here regularly reach 45°C, thus the society has become mainly nocturnal. They are also evenly spread across the planet, with no more than 100,000 in the five largest cities.

Point of Interest: Advanced Weather-control System
An advanced weather-control system ensures that there is plenty of daylight for solar power generation and storage systems and that there is two hours of precipitation before sunset. This rainfall is timed to allow the air and ground to cool before the Khimkaans leave their air-condition homes.
History and background
So efficient is the Khimkaa weather control system that it has been patented and is marketed throughout the Third Imperium. Many view a Khimkaa control system as a mark of quality and reliability, though the Khimkaa insist on a 100-year annual maintenance contract with every prospective client prior to installation. The cost of a complete annual overhaul has almost doubled the cost of a Khimkaa system and made their competitors seem relatively cheap since they only insist on a ten-year overhaul. Despite this, Khimkaa systems are in high demand and they are currently running a 12-year waiting list for installation. Their real wealth does not come from the installation of weather systems but from the maintenance contracts which, although franchised out, is always overseen by a Khimkaa coordinator.
