Kaza has a tainted unbreathably thin atmosphere and very little surface water. The system has a population between 10,000 and 10 million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. 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. Kaza, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. During the Long Night this world was named Gunar.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Kaza is a member of the Vilani Main.

Kaza is a hot world that retains small brackish seas at both poles. There is no native life although a number of accidentally imported species have colonised the temperate polar regions and are thriving. This artificial ecosystem is reasonably stable and is beginning to expand out into the deserts.

Point of Interest: Terraforming Project[edit]

The world is the subject of an ongoing terraforming experiment and its environment is slowly being transformed. However, the process is extremely slow and even the best estimates that the process will take in excess of six hundred years... It is hoped that the ongoing research will lead to improved terraforming methods.

History and background[edit]

The world is ruled by a Management Committee appointed by KazaHoriSuns LIC, a mining corporation that owns the entire surface of the planet as well as the four gas giants in the system.

Government policy and local laws are decided at board meetings and are enforced by corporate security. In reality security ignore virtually all crime outside of company buildings, but when the law is enforced the force used is swift, overwhelming and brutal.
