Mirkan has a tainted unbreathably thin atmosphere and very little surface water. The system supports a population of fewer than 10,000 sophonts. This world is a satellite of a gas giant or another planet in the system. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Zeda Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Mirkan, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. During the Long Night this world was named Giiuush.

History and background[edit]

The government recognizes Imperial High Justice but few other rules apply. The startowns are noted for their wide variety of exotic entertainment. Mirkan has a reputation as a mercenary clearing-house.

The world has no local manufacturing and imports everything the population needs to survive. All visitors pay a weekly air tax.
