Planetary Data

Geographic Data

Yuma is a planet 8200km in diameter with a dense, oxygen-rich atmosphere found odd because of its relative dearth of plant life or surface water. Surface gravity is 0.5g, while atmospheric pressure is 1.61 atm and surface water coverage is barely 16%.


The planet is home to 390 million inhabitants, a remarkable feat given the state of the planet's relative water shortage.


Water is typically a high-demand import, but the unusually high wealth of the planet and its inhabitants mean that there's a market for nearly anything on planet. The low tech base typically means that such purchases are rarely reparable, but such is life.


The planet's government is dominated by the Church of the Savior Risen, an offshoot of an Earth belief group that made a later jump to space than most of its contemporaries, and as such has had a lesser impact except getting a world essentially to itself - even a planet not many colonists wanted to try for. All planetary and subplanetary decisions are made by church elders.

Travellers' Information


The Core Systems Scout Service has issued a code Amber travel advisory for planet Yuma. The religious dictatorship in place on-planet has established a strict set of laws regarding conduct and belongings, and restrictions are just as strict on travellers as they are on citizens.
