Saurus is an agricultural, nonindustrial, pre-rich world with a growing agro-economy, but still lacks an adequate population to expand its economy to a rich status.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • This world has promising economic future although it needs to recruit a labor force in order to achieve the desired prosperity. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Vilis Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb. Saurus , 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. This is the homeworld to Saurian, a Minor race.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Saurus is yet another agricultural planet with a garden world environment. With a relatively small population of approximately 800,000, the world has not been deeply penetrated by humanity, and much of its surface and native species remain a mystery. The lower technology and population limits the local manufacture of vehicles and exploitation of fossil fuels.

Saurus (SM 1320) , 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.
