Meridian is the central system of the Thousand Suns, the hub around which all of civilized space revolves. A true world-city, most of its surface is covered with durasteel buildings and other structures, some of them kilometers tall, although none surpasses the Capitol, where both chambers of the Concordium deliberate when in session. Most travel on Meridian is done via air, whether grav car, aerodyne, or other more exotic forms of transportation. Far below the below the spires lies the Strato, the true surface of the planet — a vibrant, riotous place where species and cultures from across the Thousand Suns mingle, brawl, and wheel and deal. Meridian is a diverse, almost timeless place, strangely insulated from affairs in the wider galaxy. Even at the height of the Civil War, as rebel and loyalist fleets engaged one another throughout Center Sector, the Opera House continued to draw the rich and the powerful, while gravball teams contended in the Arena, and megacorporations plotted how best to sell their goods to emerging markets in the marches. Not much has changed in the generation since the end of the war and, barring some unforeseen turn of events, not much is likely to do so.
