History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Pagliacci is an Imperial world located on the Rim Main, just inside the Imperium border, within Harlequin Subsector of the Solomani Rim.

Imperial Landed Nobility (N)[edit]

Pagliacci, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estates of two members of the Imperial Nobility, who are charged with overseeing the world.

World Starport (Sp)[edit]

Pagliacci has a Class C Starport, an average quality installation which includes amenities including unrefined fuel for starships, some brokerage services for passengers and cargo, and a variety of ship provisions. There is a shipyard capable of doing maintenance and other kinds of repair. Ports of this classification generally have only a downport, unless this is a trade port or system with an hostile environment mainworld.

  • The only reason for the existence of Dion starport on Pagliacci is the planet's location on one of the main trade routes from the Solomani Rim to the rimward worlds of the Hive Federation.

Humaniti, population 95%

  • Other, population 5%

Pagliacci has a population of about 65 million, most of which is concentrated in farming settlements within a few hundred kilometers of Dion, the starport, largest city, and seat of government.

World Government (G)[edit]

Pagliacci is governed by Self-Perpetuating Oligarchy. A single family or small group provides the leadership and important positions in the government. These positions are inherited by member of the group or their family members. The organization may be monarchy, with titles passed to family members. Or a plutocracy where inheritance of the family fortune includes government position. Or the organization may be more typical organization with positions of power inherited.

World Law Level (L)[edit]

Pagliacci has a low law level. There are few laws, covering only important areas. There may be few or no law enforcement officers, the expectation is citizens will bring law breakers to the attention of the Judicial system. Legal proceedings will be fast, with few people involved. For interactions outside of the framework of the laws, cultural norms dominate. Machine guns, other automatic weapons, portable energy weapons, and other military weapons, body pistols, explosives, and poison gas are typically regulated or prohibited.

World Economy (Ex)[edit]

Pagliacci has little in the way of mineral wealth or readily exploitable resources (at least none that have been discovered) and has never been the subject of any great colonization efforts, either by the Imperial government, by Megacorporations, or by private interests.

Most of the manufacturing and industry which takes place on the planet is clustered within a few hundred kilometers of Dion starport. The remainder is scattered in small farming settlements throughout the region. Agriculture is limited mostly to subsistence farming, with a moderate surplus, all of which is sold to the industrial towns around the starport. The planet is largely self-sufficient, and off planet trade is minimal.

World Culture (Cx)[edit]

A small portion of the population has found the confines of civilization too restrictive, and made off into the outback. Some of these are seeking their fortunes, hoping to be the discoverer of some valuable mineralogical treasure which was overlooked by the initial planetary survey. Others are part of that small portion of humanity that feel that a neighbor is too close if you can see the smoke of his cooking fire.
