Burroughs is a non-agricultural, pre-industrial vacuum world, which warrants hazardous environment precautions.

  • Life in a vacuum requires great discipline. After all, it only takes one forgotten seal on a vacuum suit to spell death. Those who survive tend to be very methodically-minded and attentive to small detail.
  • It is unable to produce quality foodstuffs and must import them.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. The need to import most manufactured and high technology goods drives the price of these goods up in the open market.
  • Its economy and population are slowly growing and living conditions are expected to improve in the near future barring outside forces.
  • This a "high technology" world with technology achievements at, near, or over technology standards for Charted Space.
  • It is a member of the Solomani Confederation in the Kostov Subsector of Neworld Sector.
  • Almost 100% of the population is composed of Selenites.
  • Less than 10% of the population is composed of baseline Solomani.
