Planetary Data

Geographic Data

Crake is a large world, 15,000 km in diameter, with a surface gravity of 1.3g. The planet has a pleasant Earth-like atmosphere (at 1.2atm) that was present prior to terraforming. Liquid water covers approximately 50% of the planet's surface.


For a sector capital world, Crake is sparsely populated. Barely 8 million people reside on the planet, though its mild atmosphere and vast spaces have led countless tourists to make pilgrimages. Core Systems heritage prevails, though there is a small population of Mirandolans living within the starport grounds.


In addition to serving as the sector capital, Crake supplies almost 10% of the food consumed in Tengu Sector. The planet was colonized and seeded early, and unlike many neighboring worlds Crake's soil nurtured Terran flora with only minimal modification. Aside from its agricultural output the planet hosts a burgeoning tourism industry, as residents from Thunderbird and Tengu flock to its open skies and the chance to walk on an Earth-like world.


Crake's government is more or less an exemplary form of Republic democracy. The Sectoral Congress is significantly smaller than other sectors', and thus more responsive to the demands of the public and more prone to turnovers in election seasons. Tengu Sector has survived on the thinnest of supply lines for the entirety of the CS-Spartan War, and its government is concerned only with the survival and prosperity of its people.
