Kaurga is a garden world with an environment conductive to most sophonts. The system has a population between 10,000 and 100,000, lacking the population to be an agricultural supplier. This a low technology world with technology competency below the standard for Charted Space. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Ushra Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Kaurga, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estates of an Imperial knight and a baronet. 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 Enka Inuurk.

History and background[edit]

Kaurga is wholly-owned by the Kaurga Agroproduce Combine (usually known as “KaurCorp”). The company was established in the last years of the Ziru Sirka, with the purpose of producing furs and high-quality agroproducts for off-world markets. With the onset of the Long Night, the population became introverted, and lost much of its technology. With the pleasant conditions on Kaurga, the inhabitants found that they were content with a lower level of technology. Although the planetary government retains its corporate nature, off-world trading has only just resumed, and is still at a low level. Because of their exclusive nature, Kaurgan products can command an extremely high price.

This world had Scout base from the Second Imperium.

The Ushran government has expressed an interest in building class-B orbital starport facilities around Kaurga, as the system forms a “gap” in the Dagudashaag Main. The pressure for migration of population from Ushra (Dagudashaag 1016) to Earth-like Kaurga has been growing, but KaurCorp has successfully resisted, so far.
