Population Codes (AC) Classifications -> Summary Synopsis Paragraphs
Pop Code Statement (Summary Synopsis Paragraph) Remarks
0 World has no population (...zero sophonts). It is devoid of a known sophont population. Barren World
1 World has a 1 to 99 numbered sophont population (ones to tens).
  • On most worlds, this population would be too low to sustain itself without significant outside assistance.
  • This may represent a transient population such as the crew of a few starships, the final survivors of a dying colony, an advance team setting up to receive colonists, or a small outpost where establishing a colony is not the primary objective.
2 World has population of 100 to 999 sophonts (hundreds).
  • On most worlds, this population would be too low to sustain itself without moderate outside assistance.
  • This may represent a large transient population such as the crew of a fleet of starships, the dwindling remnants of a dying colony, a construction team building a new colony, or an outpost that could evolve into a colony.
3 World has a population of 1,000 to 9,999 sophonts (thousands).
  • On most worlds, this population would be too low to sustain itself without a little outside assistance.
  • This may represent the home base of a sizable but mostly transient population such as the base of a major starship expedition, the last generation of a dying colony, the first generation of a new colony, or a large outpost that will probably evolve into a colony if not stopped.
4 World has a population of 10,000 to 99,999 sophonts (tens of thousands).
  • This is a Nonindustrial World, too small to support the complete chain of production of most goods from start to finish.
  • Most examples of this type are capable of resource extraction but lack an industrial base, in particular factories, to make use of the resources.
5 World has a population of 100,000 to 999,999 sophonts (hundreds of thousands).
  • This is a Nonindustrial World, too small to support the complete chain of production of most goods from start to finish.
  • Most examples of this type are capable of resource extraction but lack an industrial base, in particular factories, to make use of the resources.
6 World has a population of 1,000,000 to 9,999,999 sophonts (millions).
  • This is a Nonindustrial World, too small to support the complete chain of production of most goods from start to finish.
  • Most examples of this type are capable of resource extraction but lack an industrial base, in particular factories, to make use of the resources.
7 World has a population of 10,000,000 to 99,999,999 sophonts (tens of millions).
8 World has a population of 100,000,000 to 999,999,999 sophonts (hundreds of millions).
9 World has a population of 1,000,000,000 to 9,999,999,999 sophonts (billions).
A World has a population of 10,000,000,000 to 99,999,999,999 sophonts (tens of billions). This is the largest that most worlds in Charted Space get.
B World has a population of 100,000,000,000 to 999,999,999,999 sophonts (hundreds of billions). A few examples, mostly in Aslan Hierate space.
C World has a population of 1,000,000,000,000 to 9,999,999,999,999 sophonts (trillions). Yaskoyloyt (world), possibly a few others.
D World has a population of 10,000,000,000,000 to 99,999,999,999,999 sophonts (tens of trillions). Code from T5. TBD if any exist in Charted Space
E World has a population of 100,000,000,000,000 to 999,999,999,999,999 sophonts (hundreds of trillions). Code from T5. TBD if any exist in Charted Space
F World has a population of 1,000,000,000,000,000 to 9,999,999,999,999,999 sophonts (quadrillions). Code from T5. TBD if any exist in Charted Space
