Banasdan is a poor, high-population world with a billion or more sophonts in population size.

Description (Planetology)[edit]

Living conditions on Banasdan are difficult, despite the planet’s thriving industrial economy and high technological base. The surface of the planet is only barely habitable, so the vast majority of the planet’s population huddles in sealed arcologies or underground cities.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Banasdan is a poor, high-population world located in Banasdan Subsector of the Solomani Rim. The system is a member of the Imperium and is the subsector capital.

The world was settled by Terrans following the Eighth Interstellar War. During the Long Night Banasdan was the capital of a small pocket empire known as the Arcturus Federation, the smallest of the original Rim States. Banasdan reluctantly joined the Imperium in 583.
