Whitman is a nonindustrial world, that requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society.

  • In a technological universe, societies without industrial capability generally suffer as nearly all manufactured and high tech goods must be brought in at significant cost.
  • As a nonindustrial world, it requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. The need to import most manufactured and high technology goods drives the price of these goods up in the open market.
  • It is a member of the Caliphate of Estalia in the Delhi Subsector of Holowon Sector.


Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

There is religious rule on this dry world. Low gravity and an atmospheric taint of tiny silica particulates make travel outside hazardous without proper air filtration systems.
