Sarudis is a low-population vacuum world, with a population of less than 10,000 sophonts in population size, warranting hazardous environment precautions.

  • Life in a vacuum requires great discipline. After all, it only takes one forgotten seal on a vacuum suit to spell death. Those who survive tend to be very methodically-minded and attentive to small detail.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Sarudis Subsector of Far Home Sector.

System Data

Manjazar-Sarudis System

The primary is Manjazar, a swollen red bright giant star. It has a luminosity of 6180 Sols, a mass of 15.2 Sols, and a diameter of 726.3 million km – the corona of the star extends to 2.43 AU, within orbital position (V). The inner system consists of (VI) a dense stony planetoid belt, (VII) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, (VIII) an insidious atmosphere bigworld, (IX) a sparse stony planetoid belt, (X) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, and (XI) Sarudis, designated the mainworld. None of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data

(XI) Sarudis

  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Ultra high-speed trains and early grav vehicles.
    • Water: High efficiency sailcraft, multihulled seacraft, improved artificial gears.
    • Air: Tiltrotorcraft, exotic VTOL's, PARWIG, and rocket-assisted suborbitals.
    • Space: SSTO spacecraft, early military spacecraft (System Craft), and interstellar STL starships
    • FTL: Prototype Jump Drive-1.

World government

Sarudis has a Feudal Technocracy government.

  • It is a government by specific individuals for those who agree to be ruled. Relationships are based on the performance of technical activities which are mutually-beneficial.
