THE CELESTIAL ENGINE ROOM
The planet Bahunt in the Balon System is a member of the Galapeon Commonwealth, colonised to provide labour and new living space for the expanding population in the Galactic Centre. The surface is densely populated with huge metropolises, home to billions of citizens from across the galaxy.
The world is heavily policed by the Syndicates who inherited Bahunt during the colonisation of the Inner-Rim, approximately 500 years ago. Many of them have since become culturally diversified, with other CD member states also establishing their own organisations and communities on the planet.
Bahunt is mostly populated by the working and middle classes, with many of the galaxy’s poorest civilians residing in commonwealth housing, giant estates with huge buildings hundreds of floors high. Certain areas are notorious cesspools of crime, with a thriving narcotics industry, despite the ruthless nature of the Bahunt Police.
Bahunt operates as the backbone of industry, with billions working in its factories, producing the majority of the Galaxy’s physical product. It is often referred to as the Celestial Engine Room, as it is responsible for the majority of labour that powers the Celestial Democracy machine.
