Iiu has an oceanic geography of a liquid other than water such as ammonia, methane, hydrocarbons, or other exotic liquids. The system supports a population in the hundreds of millions. This world designated as an Amber Zone. Caution is advised since the world has an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions that are not well understood and might be a danger to a visitor. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Mimu Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Lancian Cultural Region and the Domain of Vland. Iiu, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight and the fiefdom of a viscount. Both are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. This world contains an Imperial Scout Base, capable of handling Scout Service starships and personnel.   During the Long Night this world was named Agam.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Iiu is a member of the Vilani Main.

The primary of the Iiu system is a tiny red main sequence star barely luminous enough to light or heat the world. Although Iiu's atmosphere is rated as Exotic it resembles Terra's: the main constituents are nitrogen and oxygen but it retains high levels of carbon dioxide, creating an extreme greenhouse effect. This raises the temperatures on the surface to levels that Humans can endure and S'mrii find comfortable. The presence of gases such as carbon monoxide and sulphur compounds serve to make the air un-breathable without artificial aid.

History and background[edit]

Iiu was settled by S'mrii using sublight ships long before the First Imperium and even today the bulk of the population are S'mrii. The small colony survived the Long Night and was even able to maintain some contact with other worlds. The remains of the original S'mrii cities make Iiu a popular spot for those who enjoy amateur archaeology, although all digs are closely monitored by the rather repressive government.
