Plaisante is a non-agricultural, pre-industrial vacuum world, which warrants hazardous environment precautions.

  • Life in a vacuum requires great discipline. After all, it only takes one forgotten seal on a vacuum suit to spell death. Those who survive tend to be very methodically-minded and attentive to small detail.
  • It is unable to produce quality foodstuffs and must import them.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. The need to import most manufactured and high technology goods drives the price of these goods up in the open market.
  • Its economy and population are slowly growing and living conditions are expected to improve in the near future barring outside forces.
  • It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Satyressia Subsector of Ley Sector in the Domain of Gateway.

Description / Astrography & Planetology[edit]

This planet is a small vacuum planet in the forth orbit just beyond a trio of large gas giants in the habitable zone around its primary.

History & Background / Dossier[edit]

Plaisante is a vacuum world located in Satyressia Subsector, of the Ley Sector.

Imperial High / Landed Nobility[edit]

Plaisante, 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[edit]

Plaisante 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.

  • Plaisante Spaceport: The orbital maintenance facilities are crude but spacious and can handle about 68,000 tons of annual overhaul and repair work. Fuel is recovered from the gas giant they orbit near, which is relatively close for the primitive TL–7 fuel shuttles, who must be careful due to the 2G limits on their rockets' acceleration. Most parts for advanced starships have to be imported at great expense. The labor rates, however are very competitive.

World Technology Level[edit]

Plaisante possesses a Technology Level of TL–7.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Early video and early satellite communication networks.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Early fuel cells, solar energy, and geothermal power sources.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Improved automobiles, hovercraft, and bullet trains.
    • Water: Hydrofoils and early triphibians.
    • Air: Hang gliders and supersonic jets.
    • Space: Deep space probes and interplanetary spacecraft (System Craft).
  • This world was originally colonized with more advanced technology. High technology imports have fallen off sharply over time and local production was limited in its sophistication. Many resent the current routing of the X-boat lines, and see that as a factor contributing to their decline.

World Government[edit]

Plaisante 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.

  • There is a representative democracy for the 80 million citizens.
  • Peaceful with a high law level, the army is comprised of 20 security battalions.
  • Weapons are rare because of the dangers of ruptures and breaches in the life support domes.

World Military[edit]

  • A local martial art is common among citizens who are dangerous hand-to-hand (HTH) combatants. Masters of this art wear metal bracers as a warning to others.
  • The military forces are trained in protected forces (hostile environment) operations and use sealed ATVs and AFVs for surface operations.
