ArcCorp (Stanton III) is a terraformed Super-Earth in the Stanton System owned by the ArcCorp corporation. In just 20 years all all of the terrain of the planet has been sculpted, zoned and built upon, leaving very little left for nature.

A line of fusion engine plants ring the planet’s latitudes. The ArcCorp Corporation builds here fusion engines in bulk for hundreds of thousands of civilian spacecraft every year. Traders porting at ArcCorp are advised that in addition to deals on these engines, they can find just about anything else here. ArcCorp are absolutely indiscriminate about who they lease property to, and hundreds of other smaller companies have made their home near the world’s north polar region. Anthropologists familiar with the Xi’An have posited that ArcCorp is the closest human equivalent to a Xi’An factory world, and many predict that our civilization will someday evolve along the same lines.[1]

Description

ArcCorp is the single most industrialized world in Human space. It consists of layer after layer of factory; so many that today building additional structures is actually impossible. New facilities are built on top of existing ones. The ArcCorp’s official headquarters is located here, in the massive ArcCorp Tower that rises above all other parts of the factory world.

The bulk of ArcCorp’s facilities are located in Commercial District Circle C. In addition to the tower, ArCorp owns countless corporate towns. There is a cottage industry for tourists, who are invited to take pre-set factory tours. In fact, the actual fusion plants are so dangerous that a sanitized artificial factory complete with holograms and animatronics has been constructed for display to interested Citizens. While it was built for outsiders to make the trek to ArcCorp for the factory tour, it has also become a centerpiece of the local culture.

History

The world was occupied and claimed by the United Empire of Earth in 2903, along with the rest of the Stanton System from the existing inhabitants. In 2920 it was sold to the company. Unlike other corporate planets, ArcCorp decided to partition off the planet into smaller lots rather than reserve it for future development. Other companies, always non-competitors sprung up rapidly around the globe at a speed never before seen until the orb reached its current state. [2]

Locations

Area04

An ArcCorp designated industrial and commercial zone.

Area06

Area11

Area18

Aerial view of Area18

Area18 is one of the main commercial ports for interplanetary traffic for the surrounding region of ArcCorp and the site of ArcCorp Tower. Travellers can find a variety of goods from trusted names as well as local providers, if they're not overwhelmed by the sights and sounds of this landing zone.[3]

Area17

Located approximately 25km away from Area18, Area 17 is one of several other landing zones on the planet, and was visited during the Citizencon 2947 Demo.

Area20

Area39

Clor Vee used to operate Cubby Blast in a small stall nestled in a back alley of the fourth tier of Area39 until the Avasi Scandal of 2931 allowed him the opportunity to secure a storefront in Area18 with a favorable long-term lease.[4]

Natural Satellites

Lyria

This icy moon features active cryogeysers and cryovolcanoes.

Wala

The low density of Wala is particularly susceptible to tidal forces which result in the moon being noticeably prolate.
