Boasting a population of over 500,000, Gainko is one of the most industrious planets in the system. With precious gemstones and other minerals being it’s main source of revenue, Gainko’s government has a strong hold on the working class that resides in Gainko’s barren wastelands between the towering mountains that overlook the planet.
The planet overall is mountainous; exempt from this is the mining towns that speckle the base of the mountains. Frozen bodies of water are seemingly endless when viewed from the ground level; however, from the mountain peaks they look like small shards of glass. Winding roads weave through the treacherous mountain passes that lead to the main city of New Voligrad. This mecca is built within a mountain when the planet was first settled years and years ago.
Most, if not, all, of the planet’s business happens in New Voligrad. The business also has to go through the governing body there simply named the Grand Council. All requests of any type have to go through the Grand Council as well. The iron grip held by the Grand Council also keeps all of the thieves and miscreants at bay, having guards posted on nearly every corner. A huge ship port is also housed within this mountain and sees the most traffic of any planet within the system.
