Sting's thin atmosphere is tainted only in low-lying areas, where concentrations of heavy gases -- chlorine among others -- can be lethal to unprotected breathers. 
- Sting is tidally locked to its primary, Bilbo, and orbits at a distance of 0.14 AU. Sting's continents have ground to a halt and erosion is gradually smoothing the planet flat and filling its seas with sediment.

History & Background (Dossier)
The majority of the planet's population lives in underground cities near the north and south poles. Sting's capital and starport, Vinduri, is located on the northwest corner of the Lyseside (light side) continent, near the north pole.
Prior to the Fifth Frontier War, Sting was a member of the Sword Worlds Confederation, but in the aftermath of the war Sting became part of the Imperial Client state known as the Border Worlds Confederation, and was the original capital. In 1116 the capital was moved from Sting to Beater (Spinward Marches 1424).
