The undersea environment has been extensively inhabited with TL:10-12 and TL:13-15 undersea hab domes. The population is capped by law and it may be challenging to buy property or acquire a residency permit. [3]

World Government (G)[edit]

Glea has no central government for the world, an Anarchy. The largest governmental structure would be a family, tribe, or single clan.

This governmental structure can be stable over long periods of time if the population remains small or geographically separated.

  • Glea has a Federation Embassy Center.
  • The Federation maintains its major governmental apparatus on Glea:
