A View on the Surface
Ivalo's population live on the twilight zone between the hot and the cold side. The sky is blue with white clouds. The red main star is always at the horizon.
Tall plants thrive on the sunny side of the twilight belt. A lot of the surface water is tied in the ice cap on the dark side.
The inhabitants live in a tall town of steel and brick. Transportation is by wheeled vehicles, with many small two-wheelers used by private citizens. Almost everyone carries a weapons of some sort, and this keeps relations polite.
All of the people of Ivalo are employees of the Ivalo Mining Company. They are cordial and tolerant of other cultures and most are originally from other worlds in the polity or even further. Most people are working on decades-long contracts and the operations of the company are planned for the next century and beyond.
