* The Crooloyan economy makes use of selected species, who are exploited as wage slaves. Most of them are simply thought to be "specialized" in hard, menial labor, that a crooloyan feels to be above. Others might be valued for an innate immunity to radiation, infrared vision or high strength, which is a necessity on a heavy gravity world.
Description: Crooloy is the home of Menotrop Heavy Industries, Menotrop Mining, Menotrop Arms, Menotrop Aerospace, Menotrop Communications, Menotrop Health, Menotrop Agriculture, Menotrop Consumer Technologies, Menotrop Finance and Insurance and other branches of the gargantuan, galactic gigacorp.
The two and a half billion crooloyans live in less than two dozen juggernaut cities. The rest is wilderness with a few archeological sites spread across the planet.
Crooloy's heavy gravity made sliding and slithering the mode of transportation, so most of its native inhabitants have long snake-like bodies instead of feet and a well developed musculature. The only exception are the N'emmadrall - a strange skeletal arachnoid, with 12 instead of eight legs and a confusing pattern of rips, spines and ridges. Crooloy Arms copied its design for a war droid.
Crooloy's cities have ramps instead of stairs and display a lavish use of transport platforms, elevator pods and conveyors.
A remarkable spot in the system is Fallod. A burned out star, turned into the outermost planet of the system. It feeds most of Crooloy's hyperspacefaring ambitions with the required heavy materials. It is still highly radioactive and emits heat. It is unknown, whether it used to be in a dual star system with Menot I or if it was caught by its gravity. The dense and extremely slow moving body is very far away from Menot I and it took crooloyan scientists a long time to realize, that it actually orbits their sun.
Please refer to the species description of the Crooloyans for more details.
