Two moons orbit the planet, one being a barren world and the other being a mere asteroid. Several storage areas have been built on the major moon whereas the asteroid has been converted into a space station. The cities on Ijiuptos are enclosed in giant domes due to the harsh temperatures and are not as grand as the ones on Eydafrei, looking more like blocky skyscrapers. Most cities are located near the day-night terminator.
Ijiuptos was colonized shortly after its initial discovery when the Shevins started to expand beyond the Aya system. It soon became their first extrasolar colony, gaining more tourists and residents after space travel advanced more.
After the formation of the Shev'ra, some communities on Ijiuptos started to riot as they believed that their first world amongst the stars should have it own government, rather than one from Eydafrei. As time went on, the protests died down, and peace continued. The next step was to terraform Ijiuptos to be more suitable for Shevin life. While most of the atmosphere was changed, attempts to cool down the planet failed due to how hot the temperature is.
Despite the failed terraforming, large naturalist domes have been built containing all sorts of plants from Eydafrei. It has garnered a lot of tourism and has warranted Ijuptos its economic status in the end.
