Shadruck was a Class I Subclass NI verging on Class X planet renowned for it's intense urbanisation and dense population. Initially a mining operation with huge potential, contemporary Shadruck is a hub of business, trade, entertainment and general living. The number of different species registered in offical citizen tracking is currently at 137, meanwhile the population count races towards 200,000,000,000,000 in the next decade. The natural environment (however basic it may have been) of the planet is all but a figment of the past, as the surface has entirely been consumed by architecture. Living space is so desired that not only has subterranean construction been common, but construction in local space outside of the atmosphere has also been going on for the past century. This has lead to the idea that Shadruck is no longer a conventional planet anymore, the concept of which is still undergoing debate.
