Niirka is a non-agricultural, pre-industrial vacuum world, which warrants hazardous environment precautions.

  • Life in a vacuum requires great discipline. After all, it only takes one forgotten seal on a vacuum suit to spell death. Those who survive tend to be very methodically-minded and attentive to small detail.
  • It is unable to produce quality foodstuffs and must import them.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. The need to import most manufactured and high technology goods drives the price of these goods up in the open market.
  • Its economy and population are slowly growing and living conditions are expected to improve in the near future barring outside forces.
  • This a "high technology" world with technology achievements at, near, or over technology standards for Charted Space.
  • It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Dusa Subsector of Vland Sector in the Domain of Vland.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Its Class A starport serves tens of millions of residents of the small planetoid. Niirka itself is not the most hospitable world, having no atmosphere of any sort, but the benefits of a very high technology make it possible for its residents to live in relative comfort.

Rich mineral resources on the world attracted a large number of settlers which has made this inhospitable world a surprising hub of activity within the subsector.

It is the terminus of a major trade route that travels through Lalaki (Vland 0619) and then on to a major trading hub at Kagamira (Vland 1519). The proceeds from this trade-route have financed a life of luxury in this small feudal technocracy that surpasses many more "important" worlds of the Imperium.

Local Nobility[edit]

Niirka, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of two members of the Imperial Nobility, who are charged with overseeing the world.
