Avalon is a barren terrestrial planet with no atmosphere and a heavily cratered terrain with massive lava flows. The planet's almost non-existent rotation causes world to have daytime that lasts about half its year.


Economy

This planet has become very important to the New Republic in being one of its major suppliers of irons, platinum, titanium, and various common and precious minerals used for all genres of New Republic technologies. Many important construction guilds have set up operations on the planet despite its harsh lava conditions in hopes of winning contracts for exporting the ores to the New Republic. The planet's own almost non-existent rotation causes half the world to be in a day stage for half the year, while the other half the planet experiences night for half the year.

Defense

The Republic Shield maintains a presence on a platform base that orbits the planet to guard this mineral jewel from frequent pirate raids and Imperial aggression.
