Zukchurukh has a short-sleeve breathable atmosphere. The system has a population between 100 million and a billion sophonts. The governance of this world is from Mimu (Dagudashaag 0208). 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. Zukchurukh, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight and the feifdoms of a baron and a viscount. All three are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world.  

  • This is a tidally-locked world, which does not rotate as most planets do. It has one face locked to the gravity source, usually a star, and the other locked away from the gravity source, making for extremely warm weather on one side and cold extremes on the other.

History & Background / Dossier[edit]

Zukchurukh has a majority S'mrii population, first settled around -11,300 with sublight Ramships.

  • The name is S’mrii for ‘navigational error’ as the initial scoutship believed initially that they had in some way come full circle and arrived back at Mimu, so alike did Zukchurukh initially appear to the home world.
  • The illusion was shattered when it was realised that Zukchurukh was a tidally-locked world. It was still a prime S’mrii site. The Twilight band is much cooler at 185° Kelvin and the S’mrii have to live more towards the centre of the brightside.

Imperial High / Landed Nobility[edit]

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

  • 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 Economy[edit]

The main world derives its wealth from production and research into medicine, genetics and cybertech, particularly in regard to climatic adaptation. There are drugs to overcome low oxygen atmospheres (aka altitude sickness), gene therapy for modifying sweat glands to become more effective (in high temperature environments) and cybertech implants/ hardening of body parts.

A thriving community of belters mines the system's belts.

World Demographics[edit]

Most of the inhabitants are S'mrii sophonts.

  • There are also human settlements in the system, mainly in the mining bases of the Ckur-ka belt and the Khu Trade Centre in orbit round the Vivka gas giant.

World Culture[edit]

Half the human population and nearly a third of the S'mrii are followers of the Lancian culture.
