History and Background[edit]

Irikrough is a rich garden world, home to eighty-two million sentient beings. The planet maintains a strong position in the interstellar economy as a primary source of biopharmaceutical products in the quadrant, including the limited processing of certain low-grade natural anagathics, and supports a lot of interstellar trade with other worlds with greater medical needs. In recent years, a large minority of the local population has become vocal against the ecological impact that the biopharmaceutical industry has had on areas near urban communities, though there are conflicting reports as to the actual extent of the damage to the biosphere.

Irikrough is the widely beloved garden world of the Rukadukaz Republic. A vast number of important medicines and valuable salves are grown and prepared on this world, for shipment across the Republic… and throughout the Vargr Extents. However, the local sophonts see themselves as guardians of the forests and the seas first - and they increasingly resent the damage done by the pharmaceutical companies. While not a Notable World, their voice is increasingly heard in the halls of power - and, as their opponents are generally Vilani-culture corporations, those Vargr who resent Vilani corporate power are willing to listen… and act.

World Starport[edit]

Irikrough has a Class A Starport, an excellent quality installation which includes all the expected amenities including refined fuel for starships, brokerage services for passengers and cargo, and a variety of ship provisions. There is a shipyard capable of doing annual maintenance, overhauls and other kinds of repair, and construction of both starships and non-starships. Most ports of this classification have both a Highport and a Downport.
