Kepleria - Data Panel
Primary: Johannes (HD 152219)
Right ascension: 16h54m08.51s
Stellar Type: Originally A type, now F type after having undergone starlifting to obtain 0.68 solar masses of material for habitats and wormholes.
Region: Mutual Progress Association
Distance from Sol: 531 ly
Planets: Originally 10, all disassembled
Megastructure Type: 5 partial Dyson swarms
|Important Local Artificial Intelligences||AI overseer: Sacred Geometry, S4 |
AI's ethos: Gardener; social guidance; symmetry and order
Symbol: The 5 Platonic solids nested inside one another.
Affiliation: Mutual Progress Association
Founded/Colonized: Construction began 6996 and was completed in 9998. Colonization of habitats is ongoing; many are still completely wild and unpopulated by sophonts.
Tech Level: Varies depending on location and society.
|Territory and Population||Modosophonts: 13.82 quadrillion|
Territories: Johannes system
|Government and Administration||Government Type: Varies depending on location and society, but generally with transapient memetic guidance.|
Administrative Divisions: Varies depending on location, society, and overseeing transapient.
Constitution: Based on Beta Arae protocols.
Legal System: Based on Beta Arae protocols.
|Economics and Infrastructure||Major Industries: Tourism, environment design, gengineering, scientific study|
Local Travel: Space transports connect each vertex of each Prime Shape on the megastructure, with an array of routes to destinations both near and far. Internal transport systems run between and within the habitats making up each Prime Shape.
Angelnetting: Complete in most populated areas.
|Travel||Stargates: Kepleria is located at a relay node of the Wormhole Nexus, and so has 100 wormholes locally available for travel.|
Beamrider routes: 12 beamlines
Hazard Rating: 0 in heavily populated areas, up to 2 in sparsely populated places, up to 5.1 in wild areas.
Freedom of Movement: No restrictions in populated areas, but permits may be required to enter some wild regions under protection from outside contamination.

|The Prime habitats of Tetra are arranged into long strings, ten to each edge; when stacked, these tetrahedra form a spiral-like structure known as a tetrahelix.|
