Yazon is an agricultural, nonindustrial, pre-rich garden world with a near-ideal, utopian environment conducive to most sophonts, but still lacks an adequate population to expand its economy to a rich status.

  • 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.
  • Its economy and population are rapidly growing and living conditions are expected to quickly rise barring outside forces.
  • This a "low technology" world with technology competency well below technology standards for Charted Space.
  • This is a temperate world, with a climate of pleasant, average temperatures, considered to be an ideal or near-ideal environment by many different sophont species.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Nabile Subsector of Bourne Sector.

System Data[edit]

Habbat-Yazon System[edit]

The primary is Habbat, an ordinary white main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 6.26 Sols, a mass of 1.54 Sols, and a diameter of 2.198 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a vacuum inner world, (II) a vacuum inner world, (III) a trace atmosphere inner world, (IV) an exotic atmosphere stormworld, and (V) a thin atmosphere hospitable world. (VI) Yazon orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (VII) a sparse icy planetoid belt, and (VIII) a large gas giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Fruth Subsystem[edit]

The companion is Fruth, an ordinary red main sequence star that lies approximately 1600 AU from Habbat. It has a luminosity of 0.0136 Sols, a mass of 0.3626 Sols, and a diameter of 551,000 km. (I) a trace atmosphere iceworld, (II) a dense rocky planetoid belt, (III) a ringed small gas giant, and (IV) a small ice giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(VI) Yazon[edit]

(VI) Yazon is designated the mainworld. It orbits Habbat at a mean distance of 2.65 AU (396.5 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 3 years 174 days and a rotation period of 15.5 hours. The axial tilt is 12 degrees. Yazon has a diameter of 10,961 km, a density of 5.22 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.82 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Dense, with a mean surface pressure of 2.03 bar and a composition of 78% nitrogen (N2), 21% oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), carbon dioxide (CO2), water vapor (H2O), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 64% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.25m. Mean surface temperature: 26°C. The climate is rated as Temperate-Warm and experiences minor seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is dynamic and strong weather systems driven by the star and the oceans surge across the globe.

Satellite[edit]

Yazon retains a single natural satellite, a standard atmosphere hospitable world named Senk:

(VIa) Senk (UWP Y364000-0, orbiting at 40 Diameters/440,000 km)

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 377 million km², Water surface area: 241 million km², Land surface area: 136 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Habbat-Yazon System[edit]

The hot marginally hospitable world lying in orbital position (IV) has primitive native life, consisting entirely of microscopic cyanobacteria-parallels that exist in any location where they can find even a minimal trace of shelter and moisture. Their metabolic functions maintain the process of atmospheric renewal.

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

  • Senk, Yazon's hospitable moon, 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.

Fruth Subsystem[edit]

No world in the subsystem is known to have native life.

World starport[edit]

Yazon has a poor quality starport.

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

World technology level[edit]

Yazon possesses a Technology Level of TL–5.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Telephone, radio, and television.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Electricity, hydrocarbon internal combustion, and the most fundamental atomic energy.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Ground cars or automobiles and tracked vehicles.
    • Water: Large ships and submersibles with steel hulls.
    • Air: Early aircraft including seaplanes and very early unmanned rockets.
