Planetary Data

Geographic Data

O'Keeffe is a small world, 8,800 km in diameter, with a surface gravity of 0.5g. A thin, tainted atmosphere is present, and surface air pressure is 0.6atm. O'Keeffe is a somewhat cold world - average temperature ranges from -5˚ to 0˚. Ice and liquid water cover approximately 38% of the planet's surface.


950,000 people live here - the majority are of Core Systems heritage, but about 20% of the population are members of the Penitent Brotherhood. Less than 5% of the population are Mirandolans. As a border planet, O'Keeffe's people have more contact with the culture of Dragon Sector, which has altered their own - people here tend to practice some of the same customs as the Brotherhood, even if they do not share the Penitents' beliefs.


O'Keeffe's factories mostly produce ship parts - the planet's location between the Lavigne Route and Dragon Sector ensures that a good deal of craft in the area require replacements. A fair amount of black-market trade goes on as well, as pirates from Cyclone System run illegal cybernetics through O'Keeffe, both to ship into Dragon and to strip down for components.


The CSFR still designates O'Keeffe as a Federal Territory, and as such they have been ruled by a single family with an interest in keeping the planet firmly aligned with the Republic. In the last few decades, the population of Brotherhood members has risen dramatically - a situation that has led to the demand for equal representation in O'Keeffe's politics.
