Aerstou is an agricultural world with a tainted atmosphere but still a near-ideal environment for producing foodstuffs. The system supports a population of tens of millions of sophonts. It is a member of Julian Protectorate in the Tsosoe Subsector of Empty Quarter Sector and in the Hegemony of Lorean. 100% of the world's population is the Major Race Vargr.
