Omiote is a rich water world with its surface 90% or more covered in an ocean of water.

  • The inhabitants of this world live on the roughly 10% of exposed land mass, in underwater colonies, on city ships, or similar arrangements.
  • 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.
  • Most observers think that the planet's economy and population will prosper in the near future barring outside forces.
  • This a "low technology" world with technology competency well below technology standards for Charted Space.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Velous Subsector of Far Home Sector.

System Data[edit]

Zurac-Omiote System[edit]

The primary is Zurac, an ordinary white main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 4.42 Sols, a mass of 1.38 Sols, and a diameter of 2.031 million km. The inner system consists of (II) a vacuum inner world, (III) an exotic atmosphere stormworld, (IV) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world, and (V) Omiote, designated the mainworld – orbital position (I) is empty. (VI) an exotic atmosphere bigworld orbits within the habitable zone. (VI) a trace atmosphere worldlet, (VIII) a ringed large gas giant, and (IX) a large gas giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(V) Omiote[edit]

(V) Omiote is designated the mainworld. It orbits Zurac at a mean distance of 1.53 AU (228.9 million km), within the H– region of the inner system. It has an orbital period of 1 year 223 days and a rotation period of 73 hours. The axial tilt is 18 degrees. Omiote has a diameter of 14,992 km, a density of 5.68 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 1.21 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Standard, with a mean surface pressure of 1.09 bar and a composition of 78% nitrogen (N2), 21% oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 98.3% of the surface is covered in an ocean of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.7m. Mean surface temperature: 18°C. The climate is rated as Temperate-Prime and experiences moderate seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is active and strong weather systems driven by the star and the ocean sweep across the globe.

Satellite[edit]

Omiote retains a single natural satellite, a trace atmosphere worldlet named Carsell:

(Va) Carsell (UWP Y310000-0, orbiting at 20 Diameters/300,000 km)

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 706 million km², Water surface area: 694 million km², Land surface area: 12 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Zurac-Omiote System[edit]

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

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

World starport[edit]

Omiote has a Class E Starport, a frontier quality installation with few expected amenities. There is unrefined fuel for starships and a limited variety of ship provisions. There is no shipyard of any kind, but there may be parts and technical support for doing minor services and repair. Ports of this classification generally consist of a downport.

World technology level[edit]

Omiote possesses a Technology Level of TL–5.

World government[edit]

Omiote is governed by a Representative Democracy where government leadership is representatives elected by eligible voters. What determines an eligible voter varies. The representatives determine policy, including selecting members of the bureaucracy. There can be referendum, votes by eligible voters on specific subjects.
