Leset is a rich, pre-agricultural world with a moderate population over a hundred million, but not yet at a billion sophonts in size.

  • The world's agricultural industry is growing and some economists forecast an explosion in this world's agribusiness in the near future as new agro-technology and a more capable labor force are imported.
  • This is a rich world with a prosperous and thriving world economy.
  • This world has high-grade living conditions with a good climate and a non-harmful environment. As such, this world is much sought after with large queues for immigration here.
  • It is a member of the Protectorate of Leset in the Nisor Subsector of Far Home Sector, which is part of the Distant Fringe.
  • This world-system hosts a Military Base, usually associated with military ground forces, which may be located on or off-world.

System Data[edit]

Marado-Leset System[edit]

The primary is Marado, an ordinary red main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.04 Sols, a mass of 0.489 Sols, and a diameter of 764,000 km. (I-I) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world, and (I-II) Leset, designated the mainworld, have a shared orbit within the habitable zone. (II-I) a very thin atmosphere hospitable world, (II-II) an exotic atmosphere radworld, (III) a sparse stony planetoid belt, (IV) a ringed large gas giant, (V) a large gas giant, (VI) a ringed small gas giant, and (VII) a trace atmosphere iceworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(I-II) Leset[edit]

(I-II) Leset is designated the mainworld. It orbits Marado at a mean distance of 0.34 AU (50.9 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 103 days 13 hours: it is tidally locked to Marado. The axial tilt is 2 degrees. Leset has a diameter of 6,703 km, a density of 5.62 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.53 G. Tidal stresses generated by the gravitational pull of Marado cause regular geological activity. Its atmosphere is rated as Standard, with a mean surface pressure of 0.93 bar and a composition of 80% nitrogen (N2), 19% oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 69% of the surface is covered in oceans of liquid water and sheets of water-ice: average tidal ranges exceed 1m. Mean surface temperature: 12°C. The climate is rated as Temperate-Cool and is static, with no seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is active and strong weather systems driven by the star and the oceans sweep across the globe.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 141 million km², Water surface area: 97 million km², Land surface area: 44 million km².

  • Leset is a Twilight Zone World. Much of the surface ice is concentrated on the dark face of the world.
  • The world experiences libration, which causes the star to move in the sky and periodically rise and fall above the horizon in the twilight region.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Marado-Leset System[edit]

Leset, the mainworld, has extensive, abundant native life, with complex organisms inhabiting every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

The cold marginally hospitable world lying in orbital position (II-I) (within the H+ region of the outer system) has primitive native life, consisting entirely of microscopic cyanobacteria-parallels that exist in any location where they can find even a minimal trace of shelter and warmth. Their metabolic functions maintain the process of atmospheric renewal.

No other world in the system is known to have native life.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Leset is the capital of the Protectorate of Leset.

World Starport[edit]

Leset has a Class A Starport, an excellent 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 other kinds of repair, and construction of both starships and non-starships. Most ports of this classification have both a Highport and a Downport.

  • War footing (government modifier x1.2). Port Capacity: 840,000 dTons

Facilities[edit]

Port facilities within the system include:

World Technology Level[edit]

Leset possesses a Technology Level of TL–9.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Fiber optics and satellite communication and data networks.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Early fusion power.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Ultra high-speed trains and early grav vehicles.
    • Water: High efficiency sailcraft, multihulled seacraft, improved artificial gears.
    • Air: Tiltrotorcraft, exotic VTOL's, PARWIG, and rocket-assisted suborbitals.
    • Space: SSTO spacecraft, early military spacecraft (System Craft), and interstellar STL starships
    • FTL: Prototype Jump Drive-1.

World Government[edit]

Leset is governed by a Civil Service Bureaucracy. The leadership of the government is another form (democracy, dictatorship, oligarchy), but the bureaucracy leadership influences policy. The government leadership may select the bureaucracy leadership, but not its membership. Usually the governmental leadership is divided, or incapable of setting policy and the bureaucracy provides a stabilizing influence. The bureaucracy may be the full government bureaucracy or a section with limited jurisdiction but considerable influence like the military.
