History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Most of the population lives on large mining platforms constructed in shallow parts of the world-ocean. These platforms average about 25,000 to 40,000 people in population, and are constructed with landing platforms so that ships can land directly to ship the extracted ore for processing and export. The main downport is located in a sheltered cove set in a coral reef. The world is ruled by a bureaucracy made up of senior rig personnel, and is divided accordingly.
