The Sol system (also known as Solar System) is the birthplace of Humanity and capital of the Empire. The Imperator, Senate and many other major UEE institutions are based on Earth (Sol III). Among the many historical milestones that the system can lay claim to is the first ever terraformed planet, Mars (Sol IV).
Mercury : Sol I
Due to an orbital eccentricity, this small planet experiences the greatest temperature variations of any planet in the system.
Venus : Sol II
Venus' atmosphere is almost entirely composed of carbon dioxide, which makes it the hottest planet in the Sol System.
Earth : Sol III
Humanity's homeworld and namesake of the United Empire of Earth. It is the center of the UEE political machine and a focal point in the Empire's commerce and culture. Centuries of habitation have stripped the planet of its natural resources resulting in a heavy dependence on imports for the billions that live here.
Mars : Sol IV
A prosperous and populous planet, Mars was the Empire's first successfully terraformed planet. The process was marred by what is today known as the Mars Tragedy when a terraforming disaster killed 4,876 people in 2125.
Jupiter : Sol V
This gas giant is the largest planet in the Sol System.
Saturn : Sol VI
A gas giant best known for its set of planetary rings.
Uranus : Sol VII
This ice giant has an unusual lopsided magnetic field due to a dramatic tilt of its axis that places its north and south poles where most other planets have their equator.
Neptune : Sol VIII
An ice giant whose differential rotation contributes to it having the strongest winds in the Sol System.
Pluto : Sol IX (Dwarf Planet)
This dwarf planet was the first major Kuiper Belt object to ever be discovered and is primarily made of ice and rock.

Orbiting outside the Kuiper Belt, next to the Sol - Croshaw jump point, TDD Kesner is a major shipping hub where most cargo moving to Earth is first processed - to help alleviate congestion on the Empire's capital world.
Though it is no longer in active service since the Marine forces stationed here were reassigned to Mars, the base remains strictly off limits.
