Bain is a rich water world with a moderate population over a hundred million, but not yet at a billion sophonts in population size.

  • Its surface is 90% or more covered in an ocean of water.
  • The inhabitants of this world live on the roughly 10% of exposed land mass, in underwater colonies, on city ships, or similar arrangements.
  • This is a rich world with a prosperous and thriving world economy.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

Part of the Solomani Confederation, and is under the control of the Boötean Federation. It is the subsector capital with the highest population and technology level. The surface gravity is 0.91 G's, and the atmospheric pressure is 1.21 atmospheres. The core of molten iron yields a planetary density of 5.67 g/ml. The climate is cool and the planet orbits 0.71 AU from its primary.
