History and background
This vacuum, ice-capped world boasts a surprising population of over 60 million people who live in a number of large underground cities. Aska has to rely heavily on technology from other worlds, and regular shipments to keep the large scale life support system operational. There are daily shipments arriving from Daas, via a contract with Sharurshid.
Much of the population spend their time in sizable employment complexes that house, feed, entertain, and provide jobs for the populace. Space is at a premium in the cities, and as a result it is only the wealthy or criminals who live outside the employment communes. People who live outside the communes are forced to scratch a living as temporary laborers, take illegal work from local gang leaders, or work for the employment companies.
Life on Aska is complicated by the low level of self-control exercised by the population. Askans are very unstable, with severe mood swings and personality shifts begin commonplace.
The largest single employer is the law enforcement agency. The agency is constantly looking for the more stable individuals. Their duties are generally quite limited, involving policing residential areas to keep petty squabbles to a minimum.
