Nestol is an agricultural, nonindustrial, and very rich garden world with a near-ideal, utopian environment conducive to most sophonts.

  • 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. However, a rich world like this one can afford the cost of importation.
  • This is a rich world with a prosperous and thriving world economy.
  • Its economy and population are growing and living conditions are expected to incrementally rise barring outside forces. The world will grow even quicker when its industrial sector begins to develop.
  • It is a member of the Enlightened in the Utt Subsector of Halcyon Sector, which is part of the Distant Fringe.

System Data[edit]

Afrini-Nestol System[edit]

The primary is Afrini, an ordinary yellow main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 1.102 Sols, a mass of 1.02 Sols, and a diameter of 1.399 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a vacuum worldlet, (II) an exotic atmosphere inferno world, and (III) a thin atmosphere hospitable world. (IV) Nestol orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (V) a thin atmosphere hospitable world, (VI) an exotic atmosphere radworld, (VII) a vacuum worldlet, and (VIII) a sparse icy planetoid belt form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(IV) Nestol[edit]

(IV) Nestol is designated the mainworld. It orbits Afrini at a mean distance of 0.98 AU (146.6 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 337 days 13 hours and a rotation period of 24.5 hours. The axial tilt is 18 degrees. Nestol has a diameter of 12,912 km, a density of 4.96 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.91 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Dense, with a mean surface pressure of 1.73 bar and a composition of 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, and 1% argon, water vapour, carbon dioxide, neon and other trace gases. Approximately 73% of the surface is covered in oceans of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.3m. Mean surface temperature: 20°C. The atmosphere is dynamic and strong weather systems driven by the star and the oceans sweep across the globe. The climate is seasonal.

Satellite[edit]

Nestol retains a single natural satellite, a cratered vacuum worldlet named Plet:

(IVa) Plet (UWP Y200000-0, orbiting at 25 Diameters/323,000 km)

Mainworld geography and topography[edit]

Total surface area: 524 million km², Water surface area: 383 million km², Land surface area: 141 million km².

Native lifeforms[edit]

Nestol has extensive, abundant native life, with organisms inhabiting every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

World starport[edit]

Nestol has a good quality starport.

  • A Class-B Starport Facility has not very well developed shipyards and is only capable of producing spaceships.
  • This facility has many very skilled personnel who can perform not only major repair work, but overhaul work as well.
  • This facility has advanced refueling and refining infrastructure. One may purchase practically any kind of refined fuel here.
  • Almost every starport of this class possesses both a Lowport and a Highport. Such ports rarely have more than one of each kind of port.

World technology level[edit]

Nestol 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]

Nestol has a Feudal Technocracy government.

  • It is a government by specific individuals for those who agree to be ruled. Relationships are based on the performance of technical activities which are mutually-beneficial.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Oligarchy.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Hegemony.
