Little is known about Laoth which orbits an anemic red coloured sun called Tau-Ceti. The entire planet is sterile and all incoming goods and people are rigorously decontaminated as the entire economy is based on the manufacturing of complex electronics and one tiny virus in the wrong place could be fatal to a project. Only humans live on Laoth yet birds fly, horses run and the brooks are full of fish. Entire metal ecosystems have been built which include copper trees, electronic hummingbirds, zinc trout and many other metal plants and animals which has led it to be said that cultivation on Laoth is done with a screwdriver. Laoth also the only known producer of Class Five Robots.
