Lemkhi is a vacuum world, lacking any atmosphere or surface water. The system has a population in the millions of sophonts, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. This world is designated an Amber Zone with an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions make it dangerous to visitors. This is a high technology world with available technology over the standards for Charted Space. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Iiradu Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Lemkhi, 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. The system supports both an Imperial Naval Base and a Scout Base with the additional starship traffic. During the Long Night this world was named Guud.
Description (Astrography & Planetology)
Lemkhi is a member of the Iiradu Trace. The naval base hosts elements of the 187th Fleet.

History and background
The barren world of Lemkhi is more than just a research base, it houses Lemkhi Imperial university of space sciences, dedicated to the study of space sciences.
Lemkhi has a Class B Starport, a good 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 most kinds of repair, and construction of non-starships. Most ports of this classification have both a Highport and a Downport.
The university maintains a class B starport, mainly for the use of transporting researchers and supplies. All profits from the spaceport duties are fed back to the university for research grant funding.
World Law Level
Because of the wide variety of scientific devices in the surrounding space and the need to prevent disruption of observations and measurements, the space lanes around Lemkhi are very strict. Ships failing to follow instructions may suffer exceptionally heavy fines or be impounded. The Amber Zone for the system comes from the University's strict and aggressive enforcement policies.
The dominating effect of the university means most of the population is fairly casual and laid-back about life. University members are always ready to welcome outsiders.
There are five main campuses, each linked by a subrail system. The main starport is at Illusheke, the capital and largest university campus. It is located at the rotational north pole of the world. The other four campuses, Rupake, Ionaa, Surashil, and Vaaidhiri, are almost equidistant around the equator.
Most of the habitable areas on Lemkhi are dug into the surface of the planet, rather than domes on the surface. There are several buildings on the surface, mainly astronomical observatories and other sensor and communications equipment.
