Settled by the Elysians in AD MMMCMLXXXIX (AD 3989) following their defeat by the Army of Uesureya in the Third Elysian War, the third planet of the Elysia Novus star system - known as Elysia Novus in Seraphim and New Elysia in Trade - is the capital and (new) homeworld of the Elysian Celestial Empire.

The Yamatai Star Empire placed a global communications network of Emrys Industries EM-O3 "Hirakeru" Communication Satellites into orbit in AD MMMMVII (AD 4007). Trinary Star Shipping, which has storefronts in all of the planet's major cities, is the primary provider of shipping services; lastly, Iemochi Applied Technologies - a subsidiary of Iemochi Innovations & Sales - has its headquarters located in Empyrean.

Since AD MMMMVII (AD 4007), Elysia Novus has been part of the PAINT transit system. A Star Army of Yamatai-operated terminal with flights to Amatsu-Yamatai, Elysia Veteris every two hours can be found at the Diplomatic Institute in Empyrean.

More about Elysia Novus

The following section contains specific information about various aspects of Elysia Novus.

Star

Elysia Novus

Elysia Novus orbits around the similarly-named star of Elysia Novus once every 252 days at a distance of one astronomical unit - equivalent to 149,600,000 kilometers or 92,957,130.3587 miles - and has a day that lasts 30 hours.

Environment

Elysia Novus

Elysia Novus is a pleasant planet, with most regions having a warm temperate climate. The most common terrain type is that of mountains, with forests coming a close second. Strangely enough, the planet only has two 'continents,' a single ocean, numerous seas of great size, and a vast number of variously-sized islands.

The temperature of Elysia Novus varies greatly in places such as at the planetary equator and the north and south poles; for the majority of the planet, however, the average temperature is between 14 degrees Celsius (57.2 degrees Fahrenheit) and 19 degrees Celsius (66.2 degrees Fahrenheit), getting colder as one goes higher up in elevation.

Elysia Novus once had indigenous fauna, however the Elysians have largely disposed of any that didn't fit in with the new ecosystem they brought with them from Elysia Veteris - hence the land is now occupied entirely by flora and fauna either introduced by or designed by the Elysians.

Cities

The capital of Elysia Novus is Empyrean and is by far the largest city on the planet, with the majority of the population scattered in smaller settlements that are typically based around a Patrician's estate.

Points of Interest

Population

Given its status as the capital and homeworld of the Elysian Celestial Empire, the population of Elysia Novus is unsurprisingly comprised almost entirely of Elysians, with the only exception being the roughly twenty thousand Yamataians stationed at the Diplomatic Institute.
