Kiel I

Kiel I is a small planet that is tidally locked to the sun of the Kiel system, United Empire of Earth (UEE). Extreme heat and stellar radiation have made the side facing the star dangerously hot and dry, while the far side of the planet is coated in nitrogen and methane ice. Due to the influence of the star's gravity, the planet is slightly deformed, with a bulge at its equator. The perpetual twilight of the solar terminator is a popular subject for artists and a hotspot for off-road driving enthusiasts.
