Argo has both an unbreathably thin atmosphere and a lack of surface water making habitation by sophonts difficult. The system has a population between 10,000 and 10 million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. This world is designated an Amber Zone with an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions make it dangerous to visitors. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Bolivar Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Argo, 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.

History and background[edit]

Considering Argo's government and law level it has a very content populace. Every adult is expected to leave the world at least once in their lifetime, to "see how the other half live."

Although not all return the vast majority do. Those that return are considered to be enlightened civilians, a position that brings certain benefits such as tax breaks and preferential treatment. This system usually assures that any troublesome elements are given every chance to get out of the government's way. It is not unknown for people to emigrate to Argo from the nearby lawless worlds, attracted by the idea of being taken care of and not having to think on one's feet.
