Koukotsu means “Ecstacy” in Yamataigo (邪馬台語).
The second planet in the Koukotsu System is the world most refer to with this system in mind. It is a lush tropical paradise world with extensive resort developments, casinos, and luxury accommodations and services. Development continued during the short reign of the United Outer Colonies and continued after the system was reintegrated into the Yamatai Star Empire. It is a common shore leave stop for the Star Army of Yamatai, especially the First Expeditionary Fleet. It is one of the most heavily populated systems in the Yugumo Cluster and with continued development and cultivation, it is expected to continue to blossom.

Koukotsu I is a rocky, desolate, near-star world and an inhospitable atmosphere of helium, hydrogen and potassium that is driven by solar winds of the primary star. There are old helium-3 extraction sites and automated mining equipment on the surface which was placed by Motoyoshi Fleet Yards. These sites are not active as of YE 43, but they fall under the ownership of the Yugumo Corporation.
Koukotsu II4) is a beautiful paradise world with nine planetary rings. Of the five worlds in this system, this one is the most densely populated and is considered the system capital. Vast rainforests cover the landmasses, and the planet is famous for its white-sand beaches and sparkling crystal seas. The planet is prone to a rather eventful hurricane season which is being controlled through atmospheric manipulation through a series of close-orbiting satellites placed by the Star Army of Yamatai in YE 29.
The planet has several colonies including; Paradise City, Koukotsu Resort Complex, Mazu Beach, and Kiyoko Beach. 5) As of YE 43, the planet reported a population of 256,000,000 which is currently rising at a rate of 3% per YE.
Koukotsu III6) is a planet of primarily dense coniferous forestation in areas not covered by the heavy glaciation that covers nearly 77% of the surface. It has a breathable atmosphere, moderately available resources, and for the most part, is locked in an ice age likely caused by a lengthy period of vulcanization which projected heavy amounts of ash into the atmosphere.
In YE 34, Origin Industries established a large testing and training complex on Koukotsu III for the training of test pilots and OriSec personnel, as well as the testing of new prototypes and other equipment.
There are several colonies on the surface of Koukotsu III; Point Hoshi, Point Horizon, Point Crystal, and as of YE 43, the planet reported a population of 45,000,320 citizens, with an expected growth rate of 1.5% per YE.
Koukotsu IV7) is a rather unremarkable gas giant with fifty-five small moons and four large moons.
Koukotsu V8) is a rather unremarkable gas giant with planetary rings. It has eleven large moons.
Aquarius Star Fortress is a unique First Expeditionary Fleet Zodiac-Class Star Fortress positioned in the Koukotsu System. It features amazing aquatic designs and internal aquarium environments. It is referred to as the “Guardian of Paradise”.
The Kouktsu System exports and trades a lot of goods.
The population of the Koukotsu System is primarily Minkan; there are some Lorath and Nepleslian that have remained after the transition from the United Outer Colonies back to the Yamatai Star Empire. The people of Koukotsu are known for their hospitality, as a tourism-driven economy, they rely heavily on the economy driven by visitors to their world. They have been very supportive of the establishment of Aquarius Star Fortress in YE 43 as that it has increased the presence of the Star Army of Yamatai.
Great roleplay opportunities.
Maybe true, maybe not.
