Tarija is a nonindustrial vacuum world, which warrants 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.
  • 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.
  • This a "high technology" world with technology achievements at, near, or over technology standards for Charted Space.
  • It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Bolivar Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector in the Domain of Vland.
  • This world was colonized by and is controlled from Bolivar (Da 0240) (world).

World Data[edit]

Non-canon Tarija is a declining mining outpost on the outer edge of the Tarija system. Established around the time of the initial colonization of Bolivar in -2,125. Tarija was still a reasonably important source of raw materials, and profit. During the Long Night the base was effectively shut down. With the re-expansion in trade and travel that heralded the beginning of the Third Imperium the base was reopened. New mining techniques and the need for a base closer to the heart of the new Imperium saw Tarija's fortunes wax once again.

  • The last of the ores worth extracting were mined out by the turn of the millennium and the need for a transport depot has diminished. The population has dropped by half since 1010. The recent rumors that Camrii-La Paz Pan-American Industrial Consortium (CLiP) are to pull out from Tarija altogether will further undermine the shaky economy.
