The world Zarauztar (originally 'Zara's Star') has been largely hollowed out by mining companies, and the bulk of the population live in the resulting caverns. The Depository of Zarauztar, which retains an important collection of artifacts and other valuable items belonging to interstellar corporations and contractors, is present in this system. Several Museum Ships maintain permanent collections here.

The twin stars have a significant population of Sunminers.
