Andula has a tainted unbreathably thin atmosphere and very little surface water. The system has a population between 10,000 and 10 million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. The governance of this world is from Shardi (Dagudashaag 3236). The world has a centralized collection library for information and data. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Laraa Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Andula, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. During the Long Night this world was named Kirgii.

History and background[edit]

The moderately-sized world has never been much more than an over-spill colony for Kakar (Dagudashaag 2937), Proytheyath (Dagudashaag 3238), and Saven (Dagudashaag 3240). It is a minor trading port for many independent merchants that ply the Laraa Main.

Point of Interest: Sarsirka Library[edit]

Andula's primary note of importance is for the presence of the Sarsirka Library, a vast multi-story complex housing a huge collection of books, newspapers, magazines, other publications, and records from across the Imperium but with emphasis on the history and development of Dagudashaag.

Although not as large as the long-established libraries of Terra (Solomani Rim 1827), Capital (Core 2118), and Vland (Vland 1717), it offers the user a great wealth of written and electronic information, specializing in interactive learning methods. The library is funded primarily by the major universities of the sector as well as receiving grants from the subsector administration. Indeed the world's population is often swollen by the presence of large numbers of students sent by the educational centers to help maintain the library and use its rich facilities.
