The Sol System is the birthplace of the Human race, and the heart of the Sol Central Government. With a population nearing 20 Billion, it is one of the most populous systems in known space, second only to the Skrell Homeworld.
It is home to numerous habitats and facilities, both Government, Corporate, and Civilian owned.
Mercury is the closest planet to Sol and is completely inhospitable. Humanity has placed several automated mining facilities on the surface however.
Venus is the second planet from Sol. It is a terrestrial planet with an inhospitable atmosphere. Much of Venus' infrastructure is in the form of orbital habitation modules.
Early terraforming attempts succeeded in creating a habitable, if thin breathable layer of oxygen in the upper atmosphere, allowing for the construction of vast cloud cities remaining in stable orbit.
Venus has become a prominent tourist location in the system.
Venus is known for its disproportionate wealth distribution, with
Luna, the moon of the planet Earth, had long been a goal for humanity and symbol of space exploration. Today Luna sits as one of the oldest homes of Humanity. It is the home of the rich, the powerful, the corporate. Divided into a series of interconnected domes which are scattered across the surface each containing its own unique city known as a "prefecture" Luna is home to a diverse and rich culture that varies from prefecture to prefecture. Its capital, Selene, is a centre of culture, the arts, trade and politics and it is from here that the Lunaites take the name of their language 'Selenian'. Despite its status, Luna is not without its own issues, though much of the population is upper class and upper middle class, these problems typically manifest themselves in political machinations and elaborate plots. The people of Luna continue to exert influence across human space, and corporations flock to Luna to build their own prefecture and headquarters.
Harvester-Cities in upper atmosphere. Grav adapted. Lower atmosphere research stations. How low can we go?
As expected, underwater cities and colonies.
