History and background[edit]

Likhukam is a major transport and communications hub. The Imperial Navy has declared Khelphine, the gas giant, of strategic importance and has placed it under Imperial control. It is a Nexus World.

The Government is drawn from the upper management of the various corporations active on the world. Legislative decisions are based on economic factors, usually to the benefit of one or more corporations.

Point of interest: Likhukam Underground Arcologies[edit]

The planet has a population of five billion who live in enormous underground cities. All of the cities are interconnected, and there are an estimated more than thirty million kilometers of tunnels below the surface. Each city has its own starport and is usually connected with a single corporation.

Society on the world is deeply stratified, with the altitude a citizen inhabits (in relation to the surface) dictating their social status, the range of available jobs and the quality of their life support. The upper levels of cities are dominated by huge windows giving panoramic views of the central star and the night sky. They have regular fresh air, excellent food, the parks are filled with real plants, citizens fill managerial or executive roles.

The mid-levels are darker and harsher, with adequate life support and a limited range of corporate shops. Most of the citizens perform skilled laboring work or fill minor administrative positions. The lowest levels are hot, overcrowded, and only get sporadic life support. The citizens perform unskilled work (if they work at all). Crime is rife in these areas, with a thriving black market, and huge areas controlled by criminal organizations.
