Giinashkhid is an industrial world with a tainted atmosphere. The system has a population over one billion. The world lies substantially outside of the habitable zone of the system and environmental temperatures are well below the freezing point of many gases. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Old Suns Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Giinashkhid, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight and the fiefdom of a count. Both are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. This world contains an Imperial Scout Base, capable of handling Scout Service starships and personnel. During the Long Night this world was named Giinashkhid.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Giinashkhid is a member of the Shegimuud Trace.

The arctic temperatures on this world do make life hazardous. The surface is covered in sluggish oceans that are kept liquid by their high salinity and the atmospheric pressure. Most of the population live on two equatorial continents and the many archipelagos that surround them.

History and background[edit]

One of the first worlds to be settled by the Vilani within the sector; it has been constantly inhabited for over nine millennia. It was originally founded as an agricultural colony, but as the population expanded it steadily became industrialized. Today it is self-sufficient in basic foodstuffs although there is a growing market for luxury commodities. Giinashkhid has been described as "...being more Vilani than Vland itself, but without the humour and tolerance".
