Leedos is an agricultural, nonindustrial world still lacking adequate means to expand its economy.

  • As an agricultural world, this world is a near-ideal environment for producing quality foodstuffs of plant, animal, and other forms. Quality foodstuffs are a major export commodity for this world.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • It is a part of the Yimin Jiti in the Veesene Subsector of Halcyon Sector, which is part of the Distant Fringe.

Leedos has a diameter of 6,670 km, a density of 5.31 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.50 G. The world is flexed by tidal forces and is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Thin, with a mean surface pressure of 0.69 bar and a composition of 80% nitrogen, 19% oxygen, and 1% argon, water vapour, carbon dioxide, neon and other trace gases. Approximately 39% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.4m. Mean surface temperature: 33°C. The atmosphere is dynamic and strong weather systems driven by the star and the seas sweep across the globe. The climate is seasonal.
