System Data[edit]

The Gladstone primary is a M3 spectral class star; a smaller, older star than most in this region. It has a habitable zone of 0.1 AU and 0.17 AU.

This system has no gas giants, limiting its usefulness as a refueling point.

There are 8 rocky worlds, with Gladstone being the largest and closest body.

  • 0.13 AU Gladstone

Mainworld Data[edit]

Gladstone is a larger than average rocky planet, with a large metallic core, and a planetary day of 12.2 standard hours. This configuration provides a stronger than normal magnetic field, allowing for life to survive in such close propinquity to its primary. The high spinrate and increased radius of Gladstone also reduces the effective gravity at the surface.

Mainworld Geography & Topography[edit]

The mainworld Gladstone is the result of several large planetoid collisions early in its history. It is slightly irregular in its geometry, and has an noticable "crease" between its largely spherical halves; this crease is the deepest points of its world ocean, going down over 100km There are both high and low altitude mountain ranges.

World Economy[edit]

Large scale agriculture and aquaculture is the primary export for Gladstone. Small operations do exist for more specialized crops, run by families or clans. There are some small manufacturing concerns here, which focus on local demand, though agricultural equipment producers such as Gladhand Robotic picking bots are exported to other systems in the Third Reformed French Confederate Republic and the Boötean Federation.

World Culture[edit]

"The world spins fast, but we take it slow."

This world is prosperous, producing valued crops efficiently using the latest technologies. Its people work hard, but have a continuous lifestyle that deliberately ignores the position of the Sun. There is much local travel, vacation spots, and sports that everyone is involved with to some extent.

Public Education, including advanced degrees, are free. As a result, a significant portion of the population is always continuing its education. Engineering and Science research is always ongoing.


Cities are more or less evenly spread over the surface, following the crop distributions.
