Nosew Rotamas is a Mars-sized Arean moon of HD 69830 d

One of the three Capitals of the Sophic League; the other two being Ararat and Sacred Heart.

Though the least populated of the three capital systems, New Taylor is by far the oldest, being where the Mutual Aggression Deterrence Accord was signed to form the Sophic League in 2314. In the system, there are no terraformed worlds, and the main population cluster is located in the biodomes and underground cities of Nosew Rotamas, a large desert moon of Gliese 302 d. Other centres of population are the numerous asteroid settlements in the local belt, and the large habitats in orbit around each world.

The system has a stagnant, if not officially declining, population (500 million at last count), but the population of Nosew Ratamas is slowly climbing. The biodomes on Nosew Ratamas are about 15-20 kilometers across, and many feature nano recreations of Tycho City, New York City, Tokyo, Paris, and others. The main revenue of both Nosew Ratamas and New Taylor is tourism and pilgrimage of devout Reformulationists seeking enlightenment.
