Astrography and planetology
The system's primary, an orange main sequence star called Urudu, has a family of three planets and one gas giant. Kinshasa, the innermost of the three planets has a temperate climate, native life, and an independent government. Kinshasa was designated the main world, but with continued growth within the Masiruu asteroid belt emphasis has shifted away from it.

Masiruu is two separate star systems approximately 5,000 AU apart. The extensive asteroid belt designated as the main world orbits the secondary star in the system. It contains a significant number of large nickel-iron bodies and is a major source of industrial quality metals and minerals.
One enormous rock has been hollowed out and serves as the starport. Known locally as Primus, it is run by a matriarch who controls an extensive bureaucracy. Various Megacorporations and mining consortiums work areas of the belt. All pay heavy duties and taxes to the Matriarch for the privilege of a mining license. The port includes an Imperial Navy reserve base which houses destroyer escorts from 2318th and 2319th patrol flotillas.
History and background
The community on Primus rely on Kinshasa for bulk food shipments, and Kinshasa makes sure that it receives fair payment.
