Peridot is a rich Imperial world located in the Gazulin Subsector of the Trojan Reach. The system contains a Naval Base.

Peridot is a large, rich world with a dense, breathable atmosphere and 91% hydrographics. The planet's land area consists entirely of several large archipelagos, most of which are located in the southern hemisphere.

The surface portion of Peridot's starport is located at Perimede, a large city and seat of the planetary government. The orbital portion of the starport is in a geosynchronous orbit directly above the city. Grav vehicles are still rather new, and so transport from city to city is usually by hydrofoil. Peridot's major industry is sea farming, including the export of fish and water plants.

The city of Perimede is built on three large islands and several small surrounding ones. The northern island is dominated by the starport facilities, with the city's fusion power-plant located 1 km off-shore. The western island is mainly residential, but the south end is taken up by sea-farming facilities. Two small islands to the west contain several private estates. The Eastern island contains startown, the government offices, and the downtown business district. More private estates are on the islands to the east, and between the three main islands is Perimede park.

Three underwater tunnels link the main islands, while transport between the other islands is by private boat or grav vehicle. In-city transport is usually by ground car.
