Knowhere is a high-population ring of many small worldlets (planetoids AKA an "asteroid belt"), not capable of retaining an atmosphere or water, and are both non-agricultural and industrial in nature with a billion or more sophonts in population size.

  • These worldlets warrant hazardous environment precautions.
  • Life in a vacuum requires great discipline. After all, it only takes one forgotten seal on a vacuum suit to spell death. Those who survive tend to be very methodically-minded and attentive to small detail.
  • As a group of industrial worldlets, well-developed manufacturing and processing sectors are major business here. Manufactured goods are a major export item.
  • The worldlets are, for the most part, unable to produce quality foodstuffs and must import them.
  • This world contains an archaeological site with suspected high-tech remnants of the now-vanished Ancients precursor race.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Soverign Subsector of Ruthless Veil Sector.

World Law (L)[edit]

Knowhere has no law in practice. It is an Anarchy. On many worlds, this by itself justifies an Amber Zone advisory. There are few laws, covering only important areas.

For interactions outside of the framework of the laws, cultural norms dominate.
