Tolen is a fairly important world. The system hosts not only Tolen, but several other fairly sizeable (and independent) interstellar communities , including two on moons in orbit around the system’s gas giants. One of these other communities was settled around the same time period as Tolen, while the others came later. Of these, one (on the radworld in the system’s 14th orbit) was settled by religious refugees from Tolen itself. They settled this world with the blessing of Tolen’s controlling religious council, who decided it was easier to let them go their own way than attempt to force-convert them. These two communities have surprisingly maintained good relations.
While Tolen is run by a state religion, it is surprisingly rather tolerant, all things considered. Prison sentences tend to be light, there are few violations which earn a death sentence, and there are (usually) no outright attempts to force-convert prisoners to the state religion. This is due to several overlying precepts of the religion, which essentially state that each individual must find God in their own manner, even if the path to Him involves personal sacrifice, pain, or even death. While there is some disagreement over these precepts, the society is surprisingly unified and calm.
Tolen’s government allows for all citizens (even those with criminal histories) to carry small knives. Indeed, they are almost a requirement, and only the youngest of children do not carry one. This is due to a variety of small pests native to the world, which pose a small hazard to individuals. These pests easily work their way into dwellings and beneath clothing,  attaching themselves to humans (whom they find are a great source of added nutrition). They are difficult to remove in almost any other manner than being cut off the skin. Fortunately, removing them is comparatively easy and painless, though the procedure does produce a fair amount of blood (which tends to attract more of the pests, unfortunately.) A vast majority of the populace of Tolen sports a number of scars from frequent removal of these pests. Several attempts over the years to eliminate these pests have failed, which is a good thing; they are an important part of the world’s unique ecosystem. Once this was determined, subsequent attempts at mass genocide for the pests were discontinued, and further attempts outlawed.
NOTE: These systems, as generated, are generic. Referees will need to modify the system and descriptions to fit their campaign needs.

This is my 279th hand-generated “System of the Day” entry, using the Traveller5 rules, from Far Future Enterprises. My goal is to publish one random system per day in 2020.
This world’s name was taken from that great scifi book series, The Dumarest Saga, written by E.C. Tubb, and published from 1967 to 2008. I make no claim to this world name; I use it only as an homage to a series which heavily influenced me (and, according to legend, Traveller itself).
This system was generated by hand, using my new Traveller dice and the Traveller5 rules set.
Feel free to use this system in your own campaigns. Permission is granted to publish these results, as long as the copyrights of Far Future Enterprises are not violated, and no money is charged for them.
As always, comments and input are appreciated.
