Balaerion is the furthest planet orbiting the star Caperion, at a distance of almost 10 million kilometers. At this distance it has an average surface temperature of -233 celsius. At only 2,974 km in diameter, Balaerion borders on dwarf status, which has caused some contention among Seraph’s astronomers. The gravitational force is 0.07 standard. It completes one orbit of Caperion every 42 standard years, and completes a full planetary rotation every 150 hours. Balaerion’s atmosphere is so thin that it is barely present due to the low gravitational force.
Balaerion is a freezing cold terrestrial world of barren frozen wastes. The surface is 96% nitrogen ice with traces of methane and carbon monoxide. Beneath the surface of frozen nitrogen is a thick layer of water ice. The crust is comprised of two tectonic plates, bordered on a great circle perpendicular to the equator. Frequent earthquakes along this line have been known to shatter the surface down to the crust. Within the crust lie valuable resources essential for artificial gravity generators and electronics.
Life on Balerion dates back a mere thirty standard years, when the Meraxis Empire established the Balaerian Detention Centre, a maximum security prison facility. Largely used as a place to send political prisoners who have spoken out against the oppressive totalitarian regime, the facility is used for mining the valuable resources beneath the ice layer, its prisoners sent there on a life sentence of hard labour. The total planetary population is 100,000, of which 90,000 are miners and the remaining 10,000 are security personnel.
