Veola is an agricultural, nonindustrial world still lacking adequate means to expand its economy.

  • As an agricultural world, this world is a near-ideal environment for producing quality foodstuffs of plant, animal, and other forms. Quality foodstuffs are a major export commodity for this world.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Sarudis Subsector of Far Home Sector.

System Data[edit]

Alcanta-Veola System[edit]

The primary is Alcanta, an ordinary orange main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.352 Sols, a mass of 0.774 Sols, and a diameter of 1.168 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a trace atmosphere inner world, and (II) an exotic atmosphere bigworld. (III) Veola orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (IV-I) a vacuum worldlet, (IV-II) a sparse stony planetoid belt, (V) a ringed large gas giant, (VI-I) a small gas giant, (VI-II) a small ice giant, and (IX) an exotic atmosphere bigworld form the outer system – orbital positions (VII) and (VIII) are empty. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(III) Veola[edit]

(III) Veola is designated the mainworld. It orbits Alcanta at a mean distance of 0.81 AU (121.2 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 250 days 19 hours and a rotation period of 22 hours. The axial tilt is 13 degrees. Veola has a diameter of 10,177 km, a density of 4.78 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.69 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Thin, with a mean surface pressure of 0.61 bar and a composition of 79% nitrogen (N2), 19% oxygen (O2), 1% argon, (Ar), and 1% water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 44% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.2m. Mean surface temperature: 6°C. The climate is rated as Cold and experiences minor seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is slow and moderate weather systems driven by the star and the seas drift across the globe.

Mainworld Geography & Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 325 million km², Land surface area: 182 million km², Water surface area: 143 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Alcanta-Veola System[edit]

Veola, the mainworld, has extensive, abundant native life, with complex organisms inhabiting every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

No other world in the system is known to have native life.

History & Background / Dossier[edit]

A narcotic drug called bataco is cultivated on Veola (1832 Far Home). The drug boosts the metabolism and gives feelings of euphoria and power. However, long-term use causes serious health problems. Bataco is popular among troops fighting in the Hell Worlds.

World Starport[edit]

Veola has a routine quality starport.

  • A Class-C Starport Facility has minimal if any shipyards and can only perform extremely limited repair work.
  • This facility has many very skilled personnel who can perform surprisingly sophisticated repair work despite the limited facilities.
  • This facility has refueling infrastructure and limited refining capabilities. One may purchase unrefined fuel here.
  • Starports of this class rarely have both a Lowport and a Highport.

World Technology Level[edit]

Veola possesses a Technology Level of TL–7.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Early video and early satellite communication networks.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Early fuel cells, solar energy, and geothermal power sources.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Improved automobiles, hovercraft, and bullet trains.
    • Water: Hydrofoils and early triphibians.
    • Air: Hang gliders and supersonic jets.
    • Space: Deep space probes and interplanetary spacecraft.

World Government[edit]

Veola has a Representative Democracy government.

  • It is a government by elected representatives.
  • The typical power source of this government is a Republic.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Unitary State .
