Tupindur Subsector When first settled, the atmosphere of Tupindur (0317) was rated Standard/Tainted (7). Over the years, it has slowly lost pressure to the solar winds of Icarus, Tupindur's star. Tupindur was originally an Amazon Tupi enclave from Terra. Since then, immigration and intermarriage has reduced the original Tupi population to less than 10%. The Solomani prison planet for the sector is at Smithall (0419) and is classed an Amber Zone using TAS standards. The information on the planet reflects only the population, government and law level of the non-prison population. These inhabitants are mainly descended from former prisoner and guard population. Lambda Centauri, a Blue-White Giant star and seeming to be a paradox, is not as luminous as Spica (the star). The system (0717) is named Actinic Lambda as it is still quite a bright star. The star has a wide binary companion (G9 V) at 1500 A.U. which itself has no planetary system. Actinic does sport the ruins of an alien civilization which had existed up until the Confederation arrived. The Gerontocracy of Schemley (0113) was set aside as a sauna-like resort world for elderly Solomani Party elite when the Confederation expanded into this subsector. It has slowly evolved into a retirement world for the old cadres. The planet is conveniently a mere Jump-3 from the subsector Capital at Crown (0315). Schemley is the owner of the Utopia Mines (0112) where Confederation safety and worker regulations are barely enforced. Utopia is a reference to the wealth, not the work. The race called Ho's Sunflowers at Sunflower (0720) have no known links to the Xoar of the Spican Third Sphere (non-aligned) systems. They do however draw from solar energy, as the Xoar do. Their world is interdicted by the Solomani. In fact, information about the system can only be found through Party channels local to the subsector or through SolSec. Quadrille (0415), named for the patchwork appearance of its croplands from orbit, is an Agricultural world inhabited by minor aliens, and is a subjugated planet, forced to produce the foodstuffs for Montanna (0416), itself a harsh planet with a dangerously corrosive atmosphere. The Quadrillites are resigned to the servitude under their Solomani masters and long ago gave up the hope of even being called by their own race name, the Kantabri.

The Tupindur Subsector contains 22 systems with a known population of 21.763 billion sapients. The highest population known is 8.11 billion at Montanna. The highest Tech Level known is D at Schemley and Crown. The best Starports known are Type-A at Crown, Tupindur, and Jumpbuckle.
