    NOVO TERRA:



    [​IMG]



    Novo Terra is one of the first planets colonized by Man.

    Seeing as it is filled with dangerous Alien Wildlife, it is now mainly only used as a refueling station, as it is abundant with Natural Gas from the Xenofungiimajora[1] which produces large quantities of Methane and Hydrogen hidden in large caves that the earth-eating Humuscomedenta Megalaspinax, better known as Novan Cave Worms, create.

    Trips to Novo Terra on the IGTN cost about T$2,000,000.

    The Governate of Novo Terra is a Military Outpost, currently controlled by Commander Ajax Whitkins.​

    Exotica- more officially known as GCSN192381ad- is a popular tourist destination, due to the striking colours and vicinity to GCSN192381be (more often called Gaiscon).

    It costs T$1,000,000 to travel to Exotica from Terra.

    Not much has happened here- except for the "GSCN192381ad 2329 Incident." Documents have recently been declassified- revealing the tragedy to be caused by an intentional Air Lock Failure by a Marxo. When interrogated by Terran Officials, the unnamed Marxo stated that the reason was to "enact xer revenge on humanity."​

    The Marxon was wearing a protective suit, xe was in control of the airlock systems.

    If white is permanent ice, and the brown colours are desert/arid zones, this planet honestly looks much like Kakalea by Chris Wayan...

    The Brownish-Purple colours are not arid zones; they are high elevations with NTXenopurpurasilva Pseudo-plants on them. The pseudo-plants on Novo Terra are actually 3 separate kingdoms- NTXenopupurasilva, NTPrasinaluca, and NTPhytoergostasa. NTXenopupurasilva are usually purple in colour, and have "advanced" biological systems such as 'eyes', light-detecting spots on their 'leaves', which look more like webbed fingers. NTXenopupurasilva have Phytomysa- muscle-like organs on photosynthetic organisms. NTPrasinaluca are similar to Terran plants but have convergently evolved Phytomysa. Some NTPrasinaluca have gill-like structures instead of leaves, and natural reflective surfaces, allowing them to take in light and redirect it to these Phytobranchia. NTPhytoergostasa are the most similar to Terran plants- but also much rarer.

    Luna, which used to be simply called The Moon, is a vacation and mining moon. Around the Terran Capital Terra, it orbits around every 28 TDays, the same side always facing its parent body.
    Luna is home to its own flora and fauna, originally coming from Terra but diverging over the years. Large Lunar Crows fly through the blue skies, taking advantage of the lower gravity. Trees, especially the Giant Lunar Redwoods, are some of the biggest ever recorded. Due to the low gravity, about 1/6 of Terra's, have reached about 7x taller, reaching up to 586.74 meters.
    Luna has become a wildlife sanctuary; If Xenimals are from a similar gravity, they are put in massive sanctuaries.

    Luna has a population of 1,283,939,297. The governate is a Province of the Terran Republic- meaning that Lunars have a direct say in the government, and have a seat on the Senatorial Council.
    Luna has 1,250 DGSOs, located all around the surface. Trips to Luna from Terra are free, due to the Terran System Hyperway.

    DGSOs, or Direct to Geostationary Orbit Elevators, are large 'Space Elevators' that go up into Geostationary Orbit. They are not the only kind of 'Space Elevator'- there are UATEs, Upper Atmosphere Elevators, which as the name implies go up into space, just out of reach of the atmosphere. There are MDEs, Midway Elevators, which go up to 1/6 the height between UATEs and DGSOs. At the top of these elevators are usually large Space Stations and Docking ports.

    THE TERRAN SYSTEM- INNER PLANETS:

    Sol:
    [​IMG]

    Sol is a Yellow Dwarf Star, exactly 1 Solar Masses. It is the main and only Star in the Terran system.








    Mercury:
    [​IMG]

    Mercury is a small selenic planet, closest to Sol. It is mainly only used as a Mining Colony, with only 2,392,000 inhabitants on the surface at any time.









    Venus:
    [​IMG]

    Venus is a planet similar to Terra, with 0.815 Terran Masses. The upper atmosphere has been made breathable, and approximately 3,202,837,829 live on Venus, despite it being one of the first planets to be colonized by Terra. Venus is known for it's beautiful cloud cities. The largest city on Venus is Aphrodite.









    Terra:
    [​IMG]

    Terra is the capital planet of Terra. With a population of 87,923,879,520, It is the largest planet in terms of population. It also houses the largest city, which also happens to be the capital, Superior (which was archaically called 'New York'.)









    Luna:
    [​IMG]

    Luna is a small planetoid which orbits around Terra. Luna is a preserve for wildlife and has a population of 1,283,939,297. The Largest city on Luna is Armstrong.









    Mars:
    [​IMG]

    Mars is a small planet home to 19,920,921,827 people. It is a large tourist spot, and is a bastion for agriculture, the low gravity and humid atmosphere allowing produce to grow larger and richer. The largest city on Mars is Ares City.









    Ceres:
    [​IMG]

    Ceres is a small planetoid in the asteroid belt, which in of itself is rich in minerals. Ceres operates as the capital of the Asteroid Belt Mining Company, a government-sanctioned company for mining the thousands of asteroids in the Asteroid Belt. The largest city on Ceres is Ironia, with a tiny population of only 2,100,824.

    GCSN-12495801297AB is a small Planet known for its abundance in Gold. Once GCSN-12495801297AB was discovered, the price of Gold on the Galactic Market dropped to only a small amount higher than iron. Temperatures on GCSN-12495801297AB reach up to 397C in the day, and -213C at night. Wearing a GalactiSuitâ„¢ Advanced Model is highly advised.

    One Gold Mining company, known as AuTerra, tried to cover up the existence of GCSN-12495801297AB. They were caught trying to raid the Galactic Catalogue in Superior, and subsequently sued and had T$1,000,000,000,000 paid to ExploreHawking (the exploration company responsible for discovering GCSN-12495801297AB), bankrupting AuTerra and essentially making Gold Worthless.

    I'll be curious to see how Earth achieved post-scarcity and manages to support such a population.

    What about climate change and all the political and social discord?

    CO2 levels were controlled by Fabrilisaphotosynthesis- artificial photosynthesis, converting CO2 and H2O into Glucose (used for agricultural supplements and Food) and O2. Since 2130, the CO2 levels have been severely monitored, and Fabrilisaphotosynthesis plants (pun intended) are put outside of every major CO2 producing source.

    GSCN128983729AF is a life-bearing planet with a thick atmosphere rich in Chlorine Dioxide, making sunsets bright pink and the sky usually a bright Yellow-Green. GSCN128983729AF's life is classified as Exotic- although it is carbon-based. The Exophotosynthesis that the life is based on runs off of a complex and large chemical algorithm; scientists are still not sure how it arose naturally. The EXPS Formula is: ​
    2CLO2 + NO3 + 2CO2 + 8H2 + CH4 => N2C2O4H6 + CL2CO3H3 + H3

    GSCN3923B-GLI15B-GRO34B-HIP1475BE is a small planet rich in iron. It is not noteworthy.
