Monocerotis is another minor world, but one which can be considered “up and coming” in the local interstellar scene. The world has plentiful resources, though its technological base has remained somewhat stagnant for several generations. The new leader has  vowed to change this.
Having been a wide ranging merchant, adventurer, and mercenary commander, this new Leader has wowed the citizens of Monocerotis with tales of high technology and accomplishments of other civilizations. To achieve his stated goals for the world (technology improvement, wealth for all, and, most importantly, Importance in the interstellar scene), the society must first improve its infrastructure. He states this alone will improve conditions on the world, leading to growth, and he backed his claims up with believable data, well researched in his travels. In particular, his speeches have sparked life and excitement into the lower classes of the society, who in the past had few options, and little enthusiasm.
Wide sections of Monocerotis remain undeveloped to this day (though they have, of course, been explored, surveyed, and mapped), and common place infrastructure for most worlds is rare here. Under his new banner, the society has begun to slowly expand into these undeveloped regions, while also undertaking significant (though achievable) improvements which will help all citizens: roads, railroads, and so forth. A number of education programs have begun, and it is hoped that this, combined with other programs of improvement, will spur steady growth and development. Plans for improving Monocerotis’ uninspiring starport are in discussion, and it is hoped that construction can be started within a few years.
Meanwhile, negotiations have begun with several of Monocerotis’ interstellar neighbors. Several worlds in the system are being systematically strip mined by various corporations, all without sanction or support of Monocerotis’ citizens. It is believed that these actions will hurt the world’s long term growth opportunities, so negotiations have begun to attempt to get them back under local control. What transpires from these negotiations remains to be determined.
NOTE: These systems, as generated, are generic. Referees will need to modify the system and descriptions to fit their campaign needs.

This is my 304th 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 system was generated by hand, using 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.
