Mianda has both an unbreathably thin atmosphere and a lack of surface water making habitation by sophonts difficult. The system has a population between 10,000 and 10 million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. This is a cold world with an overall climate is at the lower temperature range of human-congruous sophont endurance. This is a high technology world with available technology over the standards for Charted Space. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Laraa Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Mianda, 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 Miishusuug

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Mianda itself is cold and barren, with no native life and few exploitable resources. Mianda is a major communications hub and offers excellent starport and shipyard facilities. The naval base hosts elements of the 230th Fleet.
