Diraan supports a population of fewer than 10,000 sophonts. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Shallows Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Diraan, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. During the Long Night this world was named Irklishis.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Diraan is a member of the Dagudashaag Main.

Diraan itself is only a marginally habitable cool world, but with high levels of ammonia in the atmosphere a filter mask is a necessity at sea level (...the seas are markedly alkaline).

History and background[edit]

Diraan is another minor stopping-off point for the independent trader moving coreward and spinward. Its semi-automatic starport offers basic ship necessities with little in the way of extras. There is a single local 'general' store and cafe bar. The starport has only recently been upgraded, ahead of Ufesk (Dagudashaag 0816).
