Zyra is a world suited to becoming an agricultural world, but with a population between 10,000 and 100,000 sophonts, but lacks the capability to produce or process sufficient resources to export its projected agricultural produce. This world is a satellite of a gas giant or another planet in the system. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Trin's Veil Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb. Zyra, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estates of an Imperial knight and a baronet. Both are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world.

Astrography & Planetology[edit]

It is located within the Katarulu Cluster.

The original survey report showed only low levels of potentially exploitable minerals. Lacking the equipment and know-how to mine these deposits economically, the Zyrans sought outside help. The interstellar firm of Telneskian Mines & Refining agreed to provide training for the locals in return for a significant share of any profits.

Recent information indicates that the original report was inaccurate, and the lesser continents hold many rich and readily exploitable metallic lodes. The Zyran Confederacy believes that the company will soon move to take over control of the government of Zyra to drain the world of its resources.

Located on a small world orbiting the largest gas giant of that system (Bellus), Zyra's 60,000 inhabitants concentrate around two harbor cities on the eastern coast of the largest continent.
