It is a member of Third Imperium in the Regina Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb.

Astrography & Planetology[edit]

It is located within the Kinorb Cluster.

Heya's only continent is roughly hand-shaped (with six fingers) and 10,000 km across at its widest point. The fingers are extremely fertile lowlands. The palm of the hand is highland and the source of many rivers which irrigate the lowlands. The Hamantt is the central jungle from which the rivers flow. Heya's starport (Atarishii Down) is adjacent to Hilung, the world's capital and major city. Hilung is a seaport at the mouth of a great river flowing out of the Hamantt. Most other cities on the world are small, and farming-oriented.
