Ayomi (pronounced EYE-oh-mee) was a young deserted planet in the Ventemir Galaxy before becoming one of the first human colonies in the galaxy. The planet has since become the seat of the Lowan Ministry, a noble family that rules almost the entirety of the galaxy. They selected this planet due to the fact that it was naturally habitable to humans as well as its natural beauty.
Currently, the planet is mostly pristine. The majority of its residents live in archologies dotted across the surface to preserve the native life. These multi-kilometer tall structures double as space elevators and head-quarters for operations of the nobility.
The planet formed a mere 1.1 billion years ago, with life having only existing for the latter 575 million years of the planet's history. The planet lacks significant oceans, instead, the humid air condenses during the night, giving water to most of the planet besides its two large desserts.
When the planet was first claimed by the Sakagamis to use as their center for operations, several satellites from roughly one hundred thousand BCE were uncovered. They were likely used to monitor the planet for signs of sapient life, but have since fallen into a state of immense disrepair. They currently lie in a scrap-yard, as billions of satellites such as these exist throughout the galaxy.
After being colonized, the large archologies were built all over the planet. In addition to these archologies were thousands of symbolic structures honoring various Monarchs (heads of the family) or former leaders in many of the toppled civilizations that once existed in the SMC. One monument in particular generates the most tourism. This monument is a three thousand square kilometer park situated in one of the most fertile areas on the planet. It contains large statues representing each species in the Entente. This includes species not native to the galaxy such as Humanity and Molkor which have a somewhat significant presence in the galaxy.
The native life on the planet is almost entirely terrestrial with only a small number of aquatic bacteria exist in underground deposits under the surface. This life is mostly communal, evolving through cooperation rather than competition. Algae-like cells form groups analogous to plants and even life similar to bacteria cooperate. While not exactly a rare occurrence in the universe, this life is still intriguing for having developed multicellular behavior before even developing organelles.
Locomotion is not common. Only a handful of species exhibit it. This is mostly for the spores of these species and not the actual organisms themselves. These spores use large amounts of energy to spin a propeller-like organ affixed to the main body to quickly fly through the air. The spores usually fly for approximately three minutes before running out of energy where they then glide to their final resting place. They are usually several millimeters across at the largest.
The planet is home to not only most of the nobility within the Entente but also servers as the seat for a large number of bureaus which pertain to the Nobility. These include the Bureau of State Integrity and the Bureau of Affairs. These two bureaus are tasked with maintaining the power of the Family.
