A non-industrial, agricultural world located in the Mora Subsector of the Spinward Marches. Mercury is a member of the Imperium and the system contains both a naval and a scout base.

The planet has a thin oxygen-nitrogen atmosphere and a cool climate. Cereal crops such as rice are grown in the swampy coastal areas while fruit is grown in the drier inland regions.

Large parts of the world are reserved as training ranges, and are off-limits to unauthorized personnel and civilians. Mercury handles training for both the Imperial Marines and Scout Service.
