The Taldain system is the planetary system that contains Taldain, where White Sand takes place. It is a binary system consisting of one large star and a secondary smaller star. The smaller, a relatively dim white dwarf, is surrounded by a dense cloud of particles known as the Particulate Ring. The larger, a blue-white supergiant, plays an important role in the means by which Taldain is Invested by Autonomy.[1] The positioning of the system was intentionally designed by someone[2], presumably Autonomy.


Taldain is the sole planet inhabiting the Taldain system. It is tidally locked and located at a Lagrange point[3] such that Dayside always faces the larger star while Darkside always faces the smaller, weak star, which is obscured by the Particulate Ring. A single moon, Nizh Da, is in a polar orbit around the planet.[1]
