Powaza is an agricultural garden world with a near-ideal, utopian environment conducive to most sophonts.

  • As an agricultural world, this world is a near-ideal environment for producing quality foodstuffs of plant, animal, and other forms. Quality foodstuffs are a major export commodity for this world.
  • Its economy and population are rapidly growing and living conditions are expected to incrementally rise barring outside forces.
  • It is a nonindustrial, pre-rich world still lacking adequate population to expand its economy to a rich status.
  • As a nonindustrial world, 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. The governance of this world is from Mora (Spinward Marches 3124). It is a member of Third Imperium in the Rhylanor Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb. Powaza, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a baronet, and the fiefdom of a baron. All three are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world.
