System Data[edit]

Horell-Politro System[edit]

The primary is Horell, an ordinary yellow-white main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 1.668 Sols, a mass of 1.092 Sols, and a diameter of 1.536 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a vacuum inner world, (II) an exotic atmosphere radworld, (III) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world. (IV) Politro orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (V) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, (VI-I) a large gas giant, and (VI-II) a ringed small gas giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Jowit Subsystem[edit]

The companion is Jowit a red subdwarf star that orbits Horell at a mean distance of 68.2 AU (orbital position (XI), 10.2 billion km) and has an orbital period of 539 years. It has a luminosity of 0.0092 Sols, a mass of 0.144 Sols, and a diameter of 234,000 km. (I) a trace atmosphere worldlet, and (II) a vacuum iceworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(IV) Politro[edit]

(IV) Politro is designated the mainworld. It orbits Horell at a mean distance of 1.03 AU (154.1 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 365 days 9 hours and a rotation period of 27 hours. The axial tilt is 21 degrees. Politro has a diameter of 13,166 km, a density of 5.62 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 1.04 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Dense, with a mean surface pressure of 1.68 bar and a composition of 77% nitrogen (N2), 21% oxygen (O2), 1% argon (Ar), and 1% water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 63% of the surface is covered in oceans of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.3m. Mean surface temperature: 18°C. The climate is rated as Temperate-Prime and experiences minor seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is active and strong weather systems driven by the star and the oceans drive across the globe.

Satellite[edit]

Politro retains a single natural satellite, a thin atmosphere hospitable world named Murda:

(IVa) Murda (UWP H454578-3, orbiting at 35 Diameters/460,000 km)

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 545 million km², Water surface area: 343 million km², Land surface area: 202 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

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

  • Murda, Politro's temperate hospitable moon has extensive, abundant native life, with complex organisms inhabiting every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

No other world in the subsystem is known to have native life.

World starport[edit]

Politro has a poor quality starport.

  • A Class D Starport Facility has minimal if any shipyards and can only perform extremely limited repair work.
  • This facility has many skilled personnel who can perform minor repair work.
  • 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.

World technology level[edit]

Politro possesses a Technology Level of TL–4.

World government[edit]

Politro has a Balkanized Government.

  • No central ruling authority exists. Rival governments compete for control.
  • The typical power source of this government is a Balkanization.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Confederation (Anarchy).
