Uorangeng is a water world with 90% or more of its surface covered in an ocean of water. The system has a population between 10,000 and 10 million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. The world has a colony on Thaeirrgkues (Knoellighz 1620). It is a Vargr dominated Non-Aligned world in the Oguegh Subsector of Knoellighz Sector.

  • This system hosts a Naval Base for support of military starships.

System Data[edit]

Uorangeng (Knoellighz 1820) A85A6AF-B Ni Wa / O: 1620 is called King’s Ring in Galanglic, named so for its single planetoid ring formerly a satellite moon. In similar egotism, the two Gas Giants nearly identical are named the King’s Jewels also in Galanglic. Uorangeng is the home world of its Colony world, Thaeirrgkues (Knoellighz 1620), and is only one of two non-aligned, interstellar technology worlds of the cluster in that region.

  • Its cooling, F9 main-sequence star causes this Water world to shine like a heavy sapphire according to first-time visitors.
  • Though Uorangeng has a ring of planetoids that was once a satellite moon, the system does feature one planetoid belt proper separating the inner planets from the twin Gas Giants.

World Data[edit]

Lacking of a satellite moon, the oceans of Uorangeng have no tides.

  • Instead they are granted occasional swells in addition to their Coriolis Effect north and south of the equator.

World Starport[edit]

An orbital spindle Highport, named in Galanglic as King’s Spear is also rated A, and thus services both local system defense spaceships and visiting naval vessels of the Democracy of Greats to Trailing. Under a trade treaty without annexation, (thanks in part to Dhakakna’s Plea), Uorangeng has a gargantuan Naval Base topping the Starport spindle making the entire facility look much like a spear.

World Government[edit]

True to its name, the Charismatic Dictator is a king and his symbol of office is an ornate heirloom signet, iridium ring worn on the thumbclaw. Set into each side of the signet face and symbol are two bright sapphires.

  • Uorangeng’s king is suborned by surface capital vessels admirals and their captains. The entire society of the mainworld is partitioned by the Water world’s surface and submersible ships. Underwater domes are administered by local commodores that can at times anchor fleets when needed. Many world fleets are autonomous in their course and harvesting of resources but all eventually answer to the king, especially when their yields pass through the Downport and points orbital.

World Military[edit]

The local Naval Base was erected and mounted to the Highport in accord with the same treaty and doubles as the local embassy for the massive polity.

  • The king of Uorangeng rules with a tight fist and a mighty navy of super-carriers on one of which is located the A-rated Downport serviced by a fleet of escorts, fast patrol craft, battle-cruisers and ranging fusion submarines. COACC fighter wings defend the skies and sub-orbital altitudes over the floating Downport constantly on the go in the world’s tropical lattitudes. Many incoming starships must encircle the mainworld once to locate the mobile Downport before seeking a landing window and berth. Surface-to-space nuclear missiles are kept in reserve to the defense of Uorangeng from its submarine fleets spread about the entire globe.

World Economy[edit]

A natural bottleneck of trade, Uorangeng is the go-between for the Democracy and the other eleven non-aligned worlds of the stellar cluster.

  • Uorangeng exports water, fishing yields, oils and crustal minerals from shallow, underwater mines to the larger stellar cluster. Afterwards any overages are traded with the Democracy of Greats per a trade treaty.

World Culture[edit]

Due to the mainworld’s Thin atmosphere, sports undertaken by the Vargr of this world are limited to sailing regattas and less strenuous activities. Locals trim their body fur and manes to a very short down to control their body temperatures in light of being forced to pant off excess heat or water from exertions made more difficult by shortness of breath. Thankfully, Uorangeng has the technology to develop respirators or condensers to aid in heavy tasks. Underwater domed homes also leech thickened oxygen from the water via gill machinery. Atmospheric pressures are lighter though the planetary gravity is stronger. This is made easier by contra-gravity systems in place or by waterborne transit in surface craft or shallow submersibles.
