I'm kind of just making this as I go, but whatever Executive Summary:
Humanoid Species without a desire or funding to expand beyond their home.
++Industrious, down to earth
- Little research
Biology: Standing Erect at around 2.5 Meters of height [8 feet for those of you (like me) who can't think in meters very well], they are humanoid species approximately at a level 3 on the development scale. They understand compassion, they do not engage in too much violence (although they are not a peaceful race). The time from childhood to adulthood is approximately 25 [human] years.
Technologies: They have mastered electronics, especially the computer, although their computers are rarely connected to networks. They have harnessed the power of nuclear technologies, but have never used it. They have never traveled beyond their home planet's orbit.
Personality: They are a very business oriented, and they are intelligent.
Homeworld: Terran, Medium G world. Mostly Carbon dioxide (900,000 parts per million) with a small amount of Methane (80,000 parts per million) and an even smaller amount of oxygen (18,00 Parts per Million). Two moons.
Reason for Staying: They don't invest in research, and no one is willing to fund them to expand.
