- It is a garden world with a near-ideal, utopian environment conducive to most forms of sophontic life.
- Both the population and economy of this world are expected to grow in the near future barring outside forces.
- This a "high technology" world with technology achievements at, near, or over technology standards for Charted Space.
- This is a temperate world, with a climate of pleasant, average temperatures, considered to be an ideal or near-ideal environment by many different sophont species.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)
The Dalsgaard system is centered on the binary stars Haafein, a white main sequence, and Udorikh, a tiny red dwarf. The pair orbit a common center of gravity at a mean separation of 103 million km. Each star retains a sparse planetoid belt orbiting starting at approximately 30 million km; both belts are believed to be the remains of worlds shattered by tidal stresses. The system contains four planets and a total of three large satellites. Dalsgaard is the second world out from the two stars orbiting at a mean distance of 413.8 million km.
- It retains two moons, Fidora and Shemmani.
- Dalsgaard is geologically active, has a higher than average density, and has a surface gravity of 0.765G. It retains a dense nitrogen-oxygen atmosphere with a sea-level pressure of 2.36 bar. Over seventy percent of it surface is covered in oceans of liquid water: a single large continent covers the north pole. Surface temperatures average around 29°C. There is native life.
