Since no one else had named the star system outside Sakura's Gap yet, Taisa Sydney jokingly named it “Rufusland.” The name stuck, and is now the star system's official name.
Rufusland is a red giant star with a large number of sizable metallic worlds around it (21). In particular, the large amount of Gold present in the system is of interest. While some of the planets have atmospheres, only one is breathable by humans (but prolonged exposure would cause severe health effects). Planets in Rufusland, especially nearer to the star, tend to be highly volcanic and seismically active.
The Yamatai Star Empire placed global communications networks of Emrys Satellites into orbit of all of the system's terrestrial worlds in YE 36. Since YE 38, Trinary Star Shipping has maintained parcel shipping centers in all of Rufusland's major cities.
