Planetary Data

Geographic Data

Agarwal is slightly larger that Mercury - 5,200 km in diameter, with a surface gravity of 0.3. The planet has a very thin atmosphere with a surface pressure of 0.4g and an average temperature of -35˚. About 20% of the surface is covered in ice.


9.8 million people reside in Agarwal's expansive cities, living in technological splendor under artificial gravity (0.9g). The people here embrace cybernetics more than almost any other Republic world - career-related augmentation is common, and the nobility routinely receive cosmetic or physical augmentation. Agarwal's starport also sees billions of travellers pass through every season.


Not surprisingly, cybernetic technology (both legal and illegal) forms a large part of Agarwal's economy. As the hub for spinward Dragon Sector, the planet derives much of its profit from traffic, and the major starport companies maintain orbital repair yards for the largest craft.


Agarwal's citizens are all required to submit to lengthy series of tests to determine career aptitude, and all government posts are filled by those recognized as the most qualified by a combination of computers and aptitude administrators.
