Shuruppak is a ring of many small worldlets (planetoids AKA an "asteroid belt"), not capable of retaining an atmosphere or water, and both non-agricultural and preindustrial in nature.

  • These worldlets warrant hazardous environment precautions.
  • Life in a vacuum requires great discipline. After all, it only takes one forgotten seal on a vacuum suit to spell death. Those who survive tend to be very methodically-minded and attentive to small detail.
  • The worldlets are, for the most part, unable to produce quality foodstuffs and must import them.
  • These worldlets are working towards being an industrial world but lack an adequate workforce to do so.
  • This world toils under the control of a military government with conditions reflecting that situation including curtailed civil rights and limited freedoms.
  • It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Dingir Subsector of Solomani Rim Sector in the Domain of Sol.

Historical Data

Shuruppak was an important system during the latter Interstellar Wars. During the Sixth Interstellar War the Terran Confederation fleet decisively defeated the Vilani fleet at Shuruppak in -2325, while the Seventh Interstellar War began with a Vilani assault on Shuruppak in -2316. During the Eighth Interstellar War, Shuruppak fell to the Vilani in -2293 as part of a slow, methodical advance by the main Sharurshid fleet.
