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

  • This world has yet to take off economically or otherwise and the population remains low for reasons largely unknown.
  • This is a tidally-locked world, which does not rotate as most planets do. It has one face locked to the gravity source, usually a star, and the other locked away from the gravity source, making for extremely warm weather on one side and cold extremes on the other.
  • It is a member of the Solomani Confederation in the Narmada Subsector of Aldebaran Sector.

World Starport[edit]

Cardinal has a Class C Starport, an average quality installation which includes amenities including unrefined fuel for starships, some brokerage services for passengers and cargo, and a variety of ship provisions. There is a shipyard capable of doing maintenance and other kinds of repair. Ports of this classification generally have only a downport, unless this is a trade port or system with an hostile environment mainworld.

The population agreed to become part of the Solomani Confederation in exchange for the usual Class-C downport, and an agreement of non-intervention.

World Government[edit]

Cardinal is governed by a Feudal Technocracy. Society divides itself based on the technical requirements of the society. Each of these functions are granted as a fief to an individual or group. Leadership of these fiefs determines the head of the government.

World Law Level[edit]

Cardinal has a low law level. There are few laws, covering only important areas. There may be few or no law enforcement officers, the expectation is citizens will bring law breakers to the attention of the Judicial system. Legal proceedings will be fast, with few people involved. For interactions outside of the framework of the laws, cultural norms dominate. Machine guns, other automatic weapons, portable energy weapons, and other military weapons, body pistols, explosives, and poison gas are typically regulated or prohibited.
