Description / Astrography & Planetology[edit]

Pagliacci is a backwater agricultural planet, most of which is uninhabited and unexplored. It is occasionally used as a stopover by ships heading toward Solomani Confederation or Hiver territory, but it otherwise plays little role in the subsector economy.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Pagliacci is an Imperial world located on the Rim Main, just inside the Imperium border, within Harlequin Subsector of the Solomani Rim.

Imperial High / Landed Nobility[edit]

Pagliacci, 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.

World Starport[edit]

Pagliacci has a routine quality starport.

  • A Class-C Starport Facility has minimal if any shipyards and can only perform extremely limited repair work.
  • This facility has many very skilled personnel who can perform surprisingly sophisticated repair work despite the limited facilities.
  • This facility has refueling infrastructure and limited refining capabilities. One may purchase unrefined fuel here.
  • Starports of this class rarely have both a Lowport and a Highport.
  • The only reason for the existence of Dion starport on Pagliacci is the planet's location on one of the main trade routes from the Solomani Rim to the rimward worlds of the Hive Federation.

World Economy[edit]

Pagliacci has little in the way of mineral wealth or readily exploitable resources (at least none that have been discovered) and has never been the subject of any great colonization efforts, either by the Imperial government, by Megacorporations, or by private interests.

Most of the manufacturing and industry which takes place on the planet is clustered within a few hundred kilometers of Dion starport. The remainder is scattered in small farming settlements throughout the region. Agriculture is limited mostly to subsistence farming, with a moderate surplus, all of which is sold to the industrial towns around the starport. The planet is largely self-sufficient, and off planet trade is minimal.

Trade Data[edit]

No information yet available.

World Demographics[edit]

Pagliacci has a population of about 65 million, most of which is concentrated in farming settlements within a few hundred kilometers of Dion, the starport, largest city, and seat of government.

World Culture[edit]

A small portion of the population has found the confines of civilization too restrictive, and made off into the outback. Some of these are seeking their fortunes, hoping to be the discoverer of some valuable mineralogical treasure which was overlooked by the initial planetary survey. Others are part of that small portion of humanity that feel that a neighbor is too close if you can see the smoke of his cooking fire.
