Sturja III



Parent Star: Sturja

Sturja III (or Cywrath for Cyris Wrath), officially the Commonwealth Territories of Sturja Prime is a desert world 1.62 AU from Sturja just barely inside the Habitable Zone. It is the system’s second largest astronomical body by population. From the surface, Cryis Hope is the largest object in the sky of Cywrath for a few months about three times per Cywrathian decade. During this time Cryis Hope experiences a powerful Neap Tide.

Life isn’t easy on the desert planet. It relies on a subteranean ocean for potable water and it’s average temperature is 309 K (97 Fahrenheit)


For at least 40,000 years before the first imperial settlement Cywrath was inhabited by an ancient indigenous people who spoke languages grouped into roughly 250 language groups.

After the Imperial discovery of the planet it was initially settled through penal transportation to the colony of Neo-León . The population grew steadily in subsequent decades; the surface was explored and an additional five self-governing imperial colonies were established.

Eventually, the six colonies federated, forming the Commonwealth Territories of Sturja Prime. Since Federation, the planet has maintained a stable liberal democratic political system that functions as a federal parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy comprising six states and several territories. The constitutional Monarch, whose official title is Viscount of the Commonwealth, is elected for life into the Imperial Peerage and is both the head of government and head of state. The population of 732 million is highly urbanized and heavily concentrated along the few the coastal areas.
