Pukh has a population between 10,000 and 10 million sophonts, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. The world has a colony on Shurkig (Dagudashaag 2928). It is a member of Third Imperium in the Gadde Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Pukh, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. The system supports both an Imperial Naval Base and a Scout Base with the additional starship traffic. During the Long Night this world was named Gili Ad.

Astrography and Planetology[edit]

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Pukh was abandoned during the Long Night and was colonised by Sternmetal Horizons in 122. This occupation came to an end in 755 after a particularly vicious trade war with Naasirka. The war came to a vicious end after Naasirka used a converted tanker to carry out a sneak attack during which the planet’s primary power plant was utterly destroyed. Within two years Sternmetal had abandoned the system and Naasirka had elected to leave the system fallow.

In 876 the world became the corporate headquarters of the giant chemical combine Zadush-DagChem LIC (ZDC). The city of Giliad is essentially the financial and administrate heart of the company, although there are extensive storage and research facilities.

The company produces a wide range of refined and unrefined chemicals for the petrochemical, engineering, medical, pharmaceutcal and food industries. ZDC chemicals are used in an extremely broad base of everyday consumer goods, and their success has elevated them in the last decade to the top chemical producer in the sector. The economic and strategic importance of Pukh has necessitated the continuance of the Imperial Naval and Scout base.
