Sotâka Ruomâqi (World Station) is the base of operation for the Poku Saeruo Degonjo. It was completed in 126 CY YE -593.

About the Sotâka Ruomâqi

The World Station is the main habitat of the Poku Saeruo Degonjo. It is capable of supporting up to a billion members of the clan. At its heart are the twelve great Wunyaka Vonai (Ark)s that brought the clan to this region. Even though they are now surrounded by the shell of the World Station, the clan keeps the arks operational in case the need comes to move the clan again.

Over the centuries the World Station has grown and expanded, it features large indoor parks and forests which supplement the station's life support system. There are 12 Vonaieano'ka (City State) in the station, one for each Ark.
