Thanber has both an unbreathably thin atmosphere and a lack of surface water making habitation by sophonts difficult. The system has a population between 10,000 and 10 million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. It is a client state of Third Imperium in the Querion Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector.

Astrography & Planetology[edit]

The world’s ruling technocrats are supported by Tukera Lines, who own the Starport, which is guarded by Tukera mercenaries rather than Imperial marines. The corporation’s costs are loaded onto visitors in the form of high tariffs on almost everything. The technocrats are opposed to any other power gaining a foothold in their system.
