Nusuth is a poor, nonindustrial desert world with no free-standing water.

  • 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.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Orowan Subsector of Halcyon Sector.

System Data[edit]

Azoth-Nusuth System[edit]

The primary is Azoth, an ordinary red main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.0268 Sols, a mass of 0.4258 Sols, and a diameter of 658,000 km. (I) Nusuth orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (II) a thin atmosphere radworld, (IV) a large gas giant, (V) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, (VI) a trace atmosphere iceworld, and (VII) a ringed small gas giant form the outer system – orbital position (III) is empty. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(I) Nusuth[edit]

(I) Nusuth is designated the mainworld. It orbits Azoth at a mean distance of 0.16 AU (24 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 35 days 20 hours: it is tidally locked to Azoth. The axial tilt is 3 degrees. Nusuth has a diameter of 6,154 km, a density of 4.97 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.44 G. The world is flexed by tidal forces and is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Very Thin, with a mean surface pressure of 0.37 bar and a composition of 76% nitrogen (N2), 23% oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 5% of the surface is covered in lakes of liquid water: average tidal ranges are negligible. Mean surface temperature: 32°C. The atmosphere is sluggish and weak weather systems driven by the star drift across the globe. The climate is static.

Mainworld geography and topography[edit]

Total surface area: 119 million km², Land surface area: 113 million km², Water surface area: 6 million km².

Native lifeforms[edit]

Nusuth, the mainworld, has primitive native life, consisting entirely of microscopic cyanobacteria-parallels that exist in any location where they can find even a minimal trace of water. Their metabolic funtions maintain the process of atmospheric renewal.

  • This facility has refueling infrastructure and limited refining capabilities. One may purchase unrefined fuel here.
  • Starports of this class very rarely have both a Lowport and a Highport.

Nusuth possesses a Technology Level of TL–6.

World government[edit]

Nusuth has a Representative Democracy government.

  • It is a government by elected representatives.
  • The typical power source of this government is a Republic.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Unitary State .
