Tree'chuakh has a short-sleeve breathable atmosphere. The system has a population between ten million and 100 million sophonts. This is a high technology world with available technology over the standards for Charted Space. This planet is tidally-locked to its primary star with a hot region facing the the primary, a cold region on the other side, and a habitable area in the twilight zone between. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Mimu Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Lancian Cultural Region and the Domain of Vland. Tree'chuakh, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight and the feifdom of a baron. Both are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. This world has a nearby Imperial Naval Base, capable of handling warships. During the Long Night this world was named Guugi Ir.

Point of Interest The Star Si’is A
The star Si'is A is a subject of continuing study, as it is at least fifty times more luminous than conventional astrophysical theories would predict. The best explanation is that a naturally-occurring miniature black hole has become lodged in the centre of the star, causing its core to contract. Probes are regularly launched into the star’s outer envelope.
History and background
Tree'chuakh (a broad translation would be 'Pitchdark'), a tidally-locked world circling a close pair of dim red stars, is a major S'mrii colony, and member of the original Alliance of Worlds. The world’s primary stars, Si'is A and B, emit primarily in the deep red and near infra-red, and the S'mrii are effectively blind in Tree'chuakh's environment.
The world's 'twilight zone' is home to a wide range of highly active native flora and fauna (described by human explorers as a ‘seething mass of teeth and tendrils’), and only the bravest (or most foolhardy) venture into the Tree’chuakh wilds ill prepared.
The S'mrii colonists treated Tree'chuakh's threats with characteristic disdain, meeting claws and fangs with fusion fire. Six 'arcology zones' have been cleared, equally spaced along the terminator, and drawing energy from the world's core, now glow so brightly with UV-rich light that this 'world-necklace' is a spectacle to rival the primary stars for starships arriving in system. The native fauna have been proved to be an important source of pharmaceuticals (a fact which certainly saved them from annihilation), and S'mrii corporations often hire Human collectors to obtain specimens in conditions where even their most advanced robots have failed.
