Banjul is a low-population world with a population of less than 10,000 sophonts in size.


Non-canon: The Banjul-Isfahan system is a busy system in terms of used space. 8 rocky planetoids, 4 gas giants, 2 asteroid belts and at least 127 moons make this system a nightmare to chart.

Making the job easier however is the fact that there are no habitable worlds in the entire system. Most of the planetoids are just bare rock with the largest one, and the one in the habitable zone, having been hit by a sizable asteroid at some point in it's recent (by cosmic standards) life which appears to have blown away any atmosphere it once had.

Of the moons in the system they vary widely from small balls only 500 miles across to gigantic spheres of violent volcanic activity and sulphurous atmospheres. At least 10 are large enough to maintain an atmosphere, of which none are breathable by any sentient life that we know of. Ice balls, rocks and volcanoes are what this system does best.
