Planetary Data

Geographic Data

Troyes is a small world, 8,200 km in diameter. Its surface gravity is 0.55. The planet has a very thin, cold atmosphere and about 8% surface water, though almost 40% of the surface is covered with ice.


Troyes' population numbers around 8.5 billion. Core Systems heritage is the dominant background here, but there are a fair number of Mirandolans and members of the Penitent Brotherhood. There are Naval installations on both of the planet's moons.


Aside from the wealth generated by virtue of being the sector capital, Troyes exports all manner of technical products, from basic electronics to illegal cybernetics. The draconian law enforcement, combined with the planet's high technical level, means that the black-market cybernetics trade from Troyes is a goldmine for those willing to flaunt sector authorities.


The Sectoral Congress has been overturned twice in the past decade, and both former ruling factions still control large swaths of the political arena planetside. The current crop of legislators was swept into office on promises to reverse a prolonged economic slump, strengthen the Mirandolan border, and expand the number of Scout-supported systems. So far, the only thing that has been accomplished is increased hostility between the Republic and the Mirandolan worlds.
