  • This is a rich world with a prosperous and thriving world economy.
  • This world has high-grade living conditions with a good climate and a non-harmful environment. As such, this world is much sought after with large queues for immigration here.

The largest group will be between 50 and 100 individuals, and there may be dozens to hundreds of them. This governmental structure can be stable over long periods of time if the population remains small or geographically separated.

  • World Social Data: Guaran has no formal government; most governmental functions are carried out by Hiver nests. Effective law level on Guaran is zero; restraints on action exist at the nest level. Guaran has a technological level of F, which is the general maximum within the Hive Federation.

World Culture[edit]

Cultural Notes: Guaran holds no special position of importance in the Hive Federation; originally the world was the Federation capital, but cosmopolitan influences and a desire to have a non-Hiver world as the seat of government for the combined Hiver and non-Hiver populations of the Federation led to its transfer to Glea in 410. As the original Hiver homeworld, Guaran is a continuing tourist attraction, and millions of Hivers visit annually.
