Ennolla is an important world. Overpopulated (47 billion people) and possessing a good level of technology, the world’s economy is a force to be reckoned with. Although Ennolla has a sub-standard starport, it’s facilities are much more expansive than those of equivalent quality, owing to the high level of traffic the world’s economy generates. There are also four orbital stations, though these are not much more than cargo and personnel transfer stations. Most visiting ships must park in orbit, or at one of these stations, then transfer to the main dirt-side terminal to conduct business.
There is serious talk about upgrading the facilities. However, the numerous proposals are all running into similar issues, the main issue being: where to place the new facilities. The region around the main ground port is completely built up. Indeed, most of the planet is built up; new construction usually consists of replacing older facilities, sometimes attempting to relocate the local population, but usually just trying to build around them as they go. This makes for a chaotic mess. It is envisioned that attempting to expand the existing port would be a bigger mess, and there is no room anywhere to construct the port in a new location. Using existing farmland is NOT an option.
One factor not discussed much about this starport situation: if a smuggler can avoid a detailed orbital customs inspection, he can generally “easily” get past the ground customs with ease. The starport inspection team is understaffed and very overworked. A coordinated smuggling effort can usually bypass inspections with ease. This has become such a common issue there are numerous popular entertainment shows documenting the situation.
The two most common (and desired) items to be smuggled are food items, and narcotics.
