Gitosy is a ring of many small planetoids not capable of retaining an atmosphere or water. 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 Rhylanor Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb. Gitosy, 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.

Astrography & Planetology[edit]

Gitosy is a member of the Spinward Main.

Unlike all other known asteroid belts, the orbits of Gitosy's asteroids do not fall into the rough plane of the star's rotation; Gitosy Belt is spherical, with orbits distributed evenly at all angles. Scientists theorize that Gitosy Belt was formed by the same processes which produced Oort clouds around most most stars. In support of this theory, it is noted that the belt's composition is very light, with a high proportion of ices. Normal Oort clouds, however, are much farther from their primaries and much less dense than Gitosy Belt.[2]

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The few large, dense asteroids in the system are widely scattered, and each of the 14 inhabited rocks is home to an independent government; most belt residents (but not all) are citizens of one of these governments. Competition is generally limited to the economic sphere, although there have been occasional incidents of violence over disputed asteroids.
