Ghandi has a trace atmosphere and water available in the form of ice. The system has a population between 10,000 and 10 million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Lanth Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb. Ghandi, 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. This world has a nearby Imperial Naval Base, capable of handling warships.

Astrography & Planetology[edit]

Ghandi is a gas giant's moon, situated in a system where there are no significant rocky worlds, just three gas giants orbited by various small satellites. Ghandi itself is a frozen wasteland of ice and bare rock, with the occasional dust storm stirred up by the trace oxygen-nitrogen atmosphere. Even the gas giant Oinikii filling the sky is nothing much to look at – it is at best a brownish-red ball with darker red swirls.[2]

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The naval base hosts elements of the 18th Fleet.

In addition to the City of Ghandi, the other major settlement is Ambigaze.

The original government of Ghandi was replaced by a new naval administration after the relocation of the 88th Fleet. The local populace revolted against this loss of autonomy in 1134, and the navy ever since has been content with leaving the civilian populace unmolested. The startown is heavily patrolled by naval shore police, but they are only empowered with arresting off-duty service personnel.

All legal enforcement ultimately ends up with the local (and overworked) Ministry of Justice office.
