Thanber is a poor, nonindustrial world.

  • 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 world has few prospects for economic development.

Era: New Era

Thanber is a poor, preindustrial world.

  • The world has poor grade living conditions: a scarcity of water and a relatively sparse atmosphere.
  • As a preindustrial world, this planet cannot yet manufacture enough high-technology resources to support 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 hopes to one day be one of the subsectors industrial powerhouses, but hasn't realized that dream yet. The leaders of this world are regularly embarking on trade missions to attract more investment capital, worker-immigrants, and other necessary stepping stones to achieve this goal.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

The world’s ruling technocrats are supported by Tukera Lines, who own the Starport, which is guarded by Tukera mercenaries rather than Imperial marines. The corporation’s costs are loaded onto visitors in the form of high tariffs on almost everything. The technocrats are opposed to any other power gaining a foothold in their system.
