History and background[edit]

A poor, non-agricultural, lightly industrial hell world located in the Remnants Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector.

Imperial High Nobility[edit]

Zukalis, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of two members of the Imperial Nobility, who are charged with overseeing the world.

World Starport[edit]

Zukalis 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.
  • Naasirka maintains a private class A port for use by its own fleet of courier ships, a larger, but still private class B port for use by other companies. There is a small public class C port, with an isolated, and fully enclosed star town on the surface to house visitors and relatives.
  • Medurma Main StarLines maintains its own class A port.

World Technology Level[edit]

Zukalis possesses a Technology Level of TL-10 or TL-A in Hexadecimal Notation.

World Government[edit]

Zukalis has an Impersonal Bureaucracy government.

  • It is a government by agencies which are insulated from the governed.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Oligarchy.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Hegemony.

World Military[edit]

This world has no significant offworld military presence although local nobility has talked about locating an Imperial base here.

World Economy[edit]

Zukalis, a moon of the gas giant Khalis, was originally a mining colony established by Interstellar Petrochemical Processing. After fifty years of exploitation, the mines were closed down.

Vilani megacorporation Zirunkariish holds a substantial, but minority, stake in the Naasirka-Mehdaat Insurance Consortium. In addition, Zirunkariish has substantial offices of its own, including a major trading clearinghouse, on Zukalis.

World Demographics[edit]

Most of the population are employed either by Naasirka or its many competitors, and the employee settlements are considered completely off limits. This is a security measure.

World Culture[edit]

No information yet available.


The world is increasingly being urbanized with a number of movements protesting this trend, and pushing for a return to the small town and increased environmentalism.

Historical Data[edit]

In 866, IPP transferred ownership of the moon to Naasirka on the understanding the new owner would build a public Class C starport, as required by under IPP original charter. Instead Naasirka immediately began work converting the deep mines into a substantial settlement. Naasirka then transferred the head offices of its entire sector wide financial and insurance services to Zukalis. The worlds primary function is to house the administration center for the Naasirka-Mehdaat Insurance Consortium, the largest insurance underwriters in the sector and the sector registry of shipping, and the central clearing house for Banque de Dagudashaag. Due to the sector wide importance of the two companies, every other major insurance and banking institution in the sector has found it necessary to also set up offices.
