Shuruppak is a ring of many small worldlets (planetoids AKA an "asteroid belt"), not capable of retaining an atmosphere or water, and both non-agricultural and preindustrial in nature.

  • These worldlets warrant hazardous environment precautions.
  • Life in a vacuum requires great discipline. After all, it only takes one forgotten seal on a vacuum suit to spell death. Those who survive tend to be very methodically-minded and attentive to small detail.
  • The worldlets are, for the most part, unable to produce quality foodstuffs and must import them.
  • These worldlets are working towards being an industrial world but lack an adequate workforce to do so.
  • This world toils under the control of a military government with conditions reflecting that situation including curtailed civil rights and limited freedoms.
  • It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Dingir Subsector of Solomani Rim Sector in the Domain of Sol.

Historical Data[edit]

Shuruppak was an important system during the latter Interstellar Wars. During the Sixth Interstellar War the Terran Confederation fleet decisively defeated the Vilani fleet at Shuruppak in -2325, while the Seventh Interstellar War began with a Vilani assault on Shuruppak in -2316. During the Eighth Interstellar War, Shuruppak fell to the Vilani in -2293 as part of a slow, methodical advance by the main Sharurshid fleet.

Additional Notes[edit]
