Leedos is an agricultural, nonindustrial world still lacking adequate means to expand its economy.

  • 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.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • It is a part of the Yimin Jiti in the Veesene Subsector of Halcyon Sector, which is part of the Distant Fringe.

System Data[edit]

Hulo-Leedos System[edit]

The primary is Hulo, an ordinary orange main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.064 Sols, a mass of 0.5376 Sols, and a diameter of 778,000 km. (I) Leedos orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (II) a thin atmosphere hospitable world, (III) an exotic atmosphere stormworld, (IV) a very thin atmosphere radworld, and (V) an exotic atmosphere bigworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(I) Leedos[edit]

(I) Leedos is designated the mainworld. It orbits Hulo at a mean distance of 0.18 AU (26.9 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 38 days 1 hour and a rotation period of 15 hours. The axial tilt is 84 degrees: the northern pole points towards the star. Leedos has a diameter of 6,670 km, a density of 5.31 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.50 G. The world is flexed by tidal forces and is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Thin, with a mean surface pressure of 0.69 bar and a composition of 80% nitrogen, 19% oxygen, and 1% argon, water vapour, carbon dioxide, neon and other trace gases. Approximately 39% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.4m. Mean surface temperature: 33°C. The atmosphere is dynamic and strong weather systems driven by the star and the seas sweep across the globe. The climate is seasonal.

Mainworld geography and topography[edit]

Total surface area: 140 million km², Land surface area: 85 million km², Water surface area: 55 million km².

Native lifeforms[edit]

Leedos has extensive native life. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

No information yet available.

World starport[edit]

Leedos has a routine quality starport.

  • A Class-C Starport Facility has minimal if any shipyards and can only perform extremely limited repair work.
  • This facility has many very skilled personnel who can perform surprisingly sophisticated repair work despite the limited facilities.
  • This facility has refueling infrastructure and limited refining capabilities. One may purchase unrefined fuel here.
  • Starports of this class rarely have both a Lowport and a Highport.

World technology level[edit]

Leedos possesses a Technology Level of TL–6.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Telephone, radio, and television.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Early fission power generation, advanced water and wind generation of electricity.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Improved automobiles, early ATV's, and dedicated AFV's.
    • Water: Amphibious vehicles, improved submersibles, and early SCUBA gear.
    • Air: Early jet aircraft and rotorcraft VTOL's.
    • Space: Early unmanned rocket delivery systems and early manned orbital rockets.

World government[edit]

Leedos has a Self-Perpetuating Oligarchy government.

  • It is a government by a restricted minority, with little or no input from the masses.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Oligarchy.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Hegemony.
