Out Of The Silent Planet
Kinorb (SM 2202) is a rich, nonindustrial world. As a nonindustrial world, it requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. The need to import most manufactured and high technology goods drives the price of these goods up in the open market. It has high-grade living conditions and life on this world is much admired by off-worlders. It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Regina Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector in the Domain of Deneb.
A rich, non-industrial Imperial world located within the Kinorb Cluster in the Regina Subsector of the Spinward Marches. KINORB has a warm climate and a standard oxygen-nitrogen atmosphere that has made the world very attractive to affluent retirees. The world government uses very strict planning controls to maintain its bucolic image, with policies that promote large farms and deter industry (with the obvious exception of it’s film industry which is considered an anomaly). Kinorb’s Riesling Down Starport is large and has extensive facilities. In addition to the startown around the port, the other major settlement on Kinorb is Gangburg. During the Fifth Frontier War, Kinorb was subject to attacks from Zhodani-allied Vargr forces. On 014-1108 the Imperial Admiralty declared the system a combat zone.
