Baladak is a poor, low-population hellworld with a population less than 10,000 sophonts struggling to survive in an inhospitable environment.

  • Hellworlds often offer daily, and sometimes even hourly, life-threatening situations to their inhabitants. Survivors often form intense survival skills and tend to be grim realists.
  • This world is a "Twilight Zone World", a planet that is tidally-locked to its primary world, giving a hot pole, a cold pole and a twilight zone in-between.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Riftspin Subsector of Mavuzog Sector.
