Tzirpacallarion is an enormous world with about four times the surface area as the Planet Earth or roughly 800,000,000 square miles (2071990488.27km). The diameter is about 16,000 miles (ca 25749.504 km) and the circumference is about 50,000 miles (80467.2km). The world was artificially created eons ago by an ancient race now lost to human contact. Some think this race was the titans, but it remains uncertain. The core of Tzirpacallarion is thought to be hollow, but nobody really seems to know for certain as none have truly visited it. The world is sometimes called 'Callarion' for short.

Water Barrier

A layer of water envelops the world, suspended in the atmosphere and divides the lower atmosphere from the outer atmosphere. This water protects the world from harmful radiation and insulates it from the cold of space. As a result of this and probably other factors, the climate of the world of Tzirpacallarion is virtually uniform throughout—a wet, humid tropical world. The water barrier scatters the light of the sun, Sh'ray, and the sky appears a soft yellow during the day and deep cobalt blue at night, never turning truly black. The water barrier makes it impossible to see any stars, except perhaps one or two truly brilliant stars, and of course, the sun Sh'ray.

This water barrier is actually the habitat of strange creatures and plant life. At night patches of glowing lights can be seen in the water barrier from the surface. These are massive schools of strange aquatic creatures swimming in its atmospheric waters.

Geography

The surface of Tzirpacallarion is over 50% land. There is no single great sea, but rather dozens of pocket seas and a plenitude of rivers. Countless hills cover the surface with very few mountains and few plains. The commonest feature of the hilly lands are tropical rain forests. The polar regions are temperate rain forests, but nowhere is dry like a desert or cold like the boreal and polar regions of Earth.

Satellites

Tzirpacallarion has five small moons and thirteen moonlets.
