Prinx has a population between 10,000 and 10 million sophonts, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. It is a Human dominated Non-Aligned world in the Querion Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector.
Astrography & Planetology
Zhodani merchant ships and occasional military patrols out of Sansibar (Spinward Marches 0412) come through the port from time to time. Imperial ships are less common, though they are not unknown, and Darrian vessels are increasingly frequent.
Much of Prinx’ surface is entirely uninhabitable. With such a thin atmosphere, mountains tend not to be eroded and remain sharp-toothed barriers to exploration. There is less soil than on worlds with thicker atmospheres and while this does not greatly affect life in the valleys, highlands tend to be stark and rugged, with little or no vegetation. The surface temperature is also low on average, so that in many areas seas freeze to a considerable depth and ice caps cover the land.

History & Background (Dossier)
Prinx was originally settled by the Imperium and, much later, became nominally part of the Zhodani Consulate. In 1070 the civil government ruined the world economy by building a Class C Starport with Zhodani help. A military junta stepped in with popular support, banned psionics, expelled the Zhodani, and nationalized the starport. Prinx has been independent ever since.
