Planetary Data

Geographic Data

Shelton is an Earth-sized world, approximately 12,600 km in diameter, with a surface gravity of 1.1g. The planet's surface is 80% liquid water and 20% polar ice. Air pressure is a dense 2.1atm.


Most of Shelton's 3.8 million people are housed in small orbital complexes or floating cities. Core Systems heritage prevails, though several hundred thousand Kanbei citizens are also living in the system.


Most of the system's economic focus is involved in the extraction and purification of water from Shelton's enormous ocean.


Shelton's stock of water was once the province of weak-Republic Kanbei lackeys, but in recent months Interstellar Resources has begun forcible extraction, going so far as to seize control of surface salt-processing plants and touching off a running series of small-scale ship-to-ship combats in the skies above the planet.
