Nguma has a population between 10,000 and 10 million sophonts, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. This is a high technology world with available technology over the standards for Charted Space. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Ushra Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Nguma, 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 Mankhe.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Nguma is a large, inhospitable, and unusual world which exhibits a large orbital eccentricity due to the gravitational effect of the central star’s companion. The dense atmosphere is ellipsoid with a variation of two atmospheres between the less dense polar regions and the equator. There is free-standing water only in the higher latitudes during the winter or the high altitudes of the polar regions during the short but intense summers. Much of the equatorial regions remain unexplored.

History and background[edit]

This world has become an important juncture with ships passing into the heart of Ushra from Arnakhish Subsector only because of the medically hostile nature of Lemuria (Dagudashaag 1612). The class A starport is an orbital facility with a subsidiary class C port on the surface.
