Bolivar is a garden world with an environment conductive to most sophonts. The system has a population over one billion. This system serves as the capital for the subsector. This world designated as an Amber Zone. Caution is advised since the world has an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions that are not well understood and might be a danger to a visitor. This is a high technology world with available technology over the standards for Charted Space.  This is a temperate world, with a climate of average temperatures.  The world has a colony on Tarija (Dagudashaag 0539). It is a member of Third Imperium in the Bolivar Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Bolivar, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estates of an Imperial knight and a baronet, and the fiefdoms of a count and the Subsector duke. All four are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. The system supports both an Imperial Naval Base and a Scout Base with the additional starship traffic. Less than 10% of the world's population is the Major Race Aslan. During the Long Night this world was named Bolivar.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Bolivar is a member of the Gushemege Main. The naval base hosts elements of the 83th Fleet.

Bolivar has a very attractive and comfortable biosphere, almost ideal for human habitation. Much of the natural beauty of the world is unspoilt, the majority of the population are concentrated in large metropolitan and urban areas. Much of the countryside has restricted access, being owned by private companies, individuals, and the planetary government. Ocean refueling is strictly forbidden.

History and background[edit]

As the subsector capital, Bolivar is the center of attention and has all the features of a high-technology high population world. What makes Bolivar unique is the near total Solomani-originated population in what is a traditionally a Vilani dominated region.

Most of the Solomani are immigrants from Iberian influenced South American continent of Terra (Solomani Rim 1827). The world has a very dynamic socio-political structure, subject to many upheavals during its history — massive immigration, popular discord, commercial exploration, terrorism, military interventions, government incompetence, and assassinations. Much of that is just history thanks to the Bolivar family which used equality and justice to bond the disparate social groups. For the most part Bolivar is a stable, thriving, and exciting world.

Bolivar is the headquarters for the Camrii-La Paz Pan-American Industrial Consortium and the subsector offices for Zirunkariish.
