Planetary Classification

Post by KraytKing » 2018-09-22 10:53am

In Star Wars, there is a pattern of classifying planets based on a single feature; "agriworld," "mining planet," "city planet," et cetera. Here on Earth we do the same thing, classifying Australia mostly as a mining country and South Korea as primarily industrial.

a) What would Earth be classified as? Looking at The Essential Atlas, seven billion is pretty high on planetary populations. Sure, Coruscant has a trillion, but that seems to be an outlier. Fondor, Corellia, and Kuat are all major industrial worlds, but have fewer inhabitants than Earth.


b) Given that we currently suck up our own wealth, what would integration into a larger economy entail? What changes to output and usage?

As Earth is now it would a "generalist or "primitive" as our tech level isn't up to par with GFFA but at same time we're not really focusing on single thing.

As for b) we're currently "sucking up our own wealth" because we have no choice.
