The present document aims to compile all information about my constructed world, Suenu [see Names of Suenu]. One of the things I want it to be is detailed, so I decided, as many extraordinary conworlders have in the past, to keep it small. I've decided to circunscribe my poietic efforts to a small region, not very bigger than, say, India, Argentina or Iran. It is on the web mainly because statelessness allows me to work on it from wherever I might be, which is convenient. Of course people are welcome to check it out, should they want to. This site is constantly undergoing revisions and stuff, and its not yet structured coherently, so... yeah. 

The Planet.
TIEGU, the star

K0 class main sequencer 
0.7816 solar masses 
gives off 0.403 as much light as Sol 
gives off 0.327 as much visible light as Sol, and quite a bit more infrarred. 
0.85 solar diameters wide 

TIEGUMI SYSTEM
.03AU - Tiny rocky planet 
.65AU - Suenu terrestrial 
1 AU - Green-coloured warm neptune, Amphitrite. 
1.5AU - large super-earth [~4 earth masses] covered in water ice, with carbon dioxide weather. 
~6AU - warm nepture-style planet with six or seven moons, it's blue and possibly 
~10AU - Ice chunks floating around. 
~18AU - huge jovian, around 0.007 solar masses, which is nearly 7 times jupiter. It's brown and lacks rings. 
34AU - The end of the Tiegumi system, and the onset of the glowing planetary nebula in which the system is embedded, and the one which gives the wonderfully coloured night skies that inhabitants of Suenu enjoy each night. 

SUENU, the planet itself.

Suenu is an unremarkable terrestrial planet with a nitrogen-oxygen atmosphere, geological activity, and vegetation covering two of its three continents. Differences to earth include the fact that the day lasts 1296 earth hours, giving you something like a month-long day and a month-long night, the year lasts 5171 hours, making it so that each astronomical year lasts just under 4 day-night cycles.  Every year, the first day comes a bit over 13 hours later, which means that for the equinox to occur at the same time of the day it takes around 397 days [the 27 earth days planetary revolution that is the day of Suenu, not the 24 hour earth day]. Seasons are also unheard of in the planet because it's eccentricity is really low and because the planet's equator has no discernable tilt. 

One of the biggest challenges for the inhabitants of Suenu, therefore, is to measure small units of time. Since the only season-like phenomenon is the day-night cycle, that comes with extreme reliability, there's no great need to keep track of seasons and planetary revolutions, although it's still of great interests to astronomers, navigators, traders, etcetera.

Cultures

Languages

The Yaslø language was the lingua franca of the Northern Coast region around the time of the beggining of the First Empire, spanning untill the year 281 of the post-imperial age, cronology which shall be used trouhgout this site. With time, just like Latin gave way to various Romance Languages in roman and post-roman times, Yaslø gave way to a number of languages, Ieseleu being the most prominent amongst them. The Ieseleu are iron age agriculturalists with a tech level akin to that of fifth century BC Mediterraneans (Greeks, Latins, Carthaginians and Etruscans) centered around the Selisu region, one fertile valley near the equator of a planet that's generally cooler, younger, smaller, and with more atmospheric density than earth. They developed iron with more ease than earth cultures because the atmosphere in their planet is both denser and richer in oxygen, but masonry and the chariot are not still invented, the axis and wheel being a rather recent innovation as of 622, the "present". A tolerant approach to religion is practiced in general, since the religious allegiance of a person is not nearly as important to others as his family, clan or guild affiliations, and the economy is rather centralized around the figures of rural estate-holders, small hamlets and urban mob-guilds. Slavery happens but is far from commonplace, except in times of war, of course. On the areas to the south the dominant languages are Yi-Tsoma, spoken by many of the groups of nomadic shepherds, small farmers and hunter-gatherers that inhabit the cold steppes and which was once the mayority language of many clans, but is now only found to a significant degree in the southern regions. Various dialects of Láxgarzasc, not all of them mutually intelligible, are spoken throughout the western peninsula, and Kor is the majority language to the East. Some parts of the region north of Honu speak a linguistic isolate, Blackwater, and Ren Kawñas is the hegemonic language west of the White River, south of Kor.
