GaknAu Val is a rich, nonindustrial water world, which has 90% or more of its surface covered in an ocean of water.

  • The inhabitants of this world live on the roughly 10% of exposed land mass, in underwater colonies, on city ships, or similar arrangements.
  • It has high-grade living conditions and life on this world is much admired by off-worlders.
  • This is a rich world with a prosperous and thriving world economy.
  • As a nonindustrial world, 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.
  • It is a member of the Society of Equals in the Dzen Subsector of Gvurrdon Sector in the Vargr Extents.
  • This world-system hosts a Naval Base, usually associated with military starships, which may be located on or off-world.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Gaknau Val system is home to a Society of Equals naval base, reflecting its positional importance between the high population worlds of Aegadh (Gvurrdon 1317) and Lloursouth (Gvurrdon 1717). The prevention of illicit piracy is paramount to the government of the Society of Equals, and this base plays in important role in that mission.

Licit piracy, on the other hand, is carried on along the borders of the Society against worlds not aligned with it. The Society Navy takes no action whatsoever against such plundering, and in fact supplements its own revenues by occasionally engaging in it.

Gaknau Val itself is owned by a Vargr corporation active throughout the Gvurrdon sector. The corporation exports fish and minerals from this watery world. No fixed bases have been installed on the world, and all personnel and equipment are imported on a regular basis.
