Sundown is a nonindustrial, rich, agricultural world with improving living conditions due to a bustling agro-economy.

  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • This is a rich world with a prosperous and thriving world economy.
  • Its economy is bustling and an increase in living conditions is expected in the near future.
  • It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Edge Subsector of Daibei Sector in the Domain of Ilelish.
