Gerissia is a warm world with an average temperature of 29 celsius. The life on the rocky planet is similar to Earth's, however, with a gravitational pull of 0.58 g, plants and animals are taller than anything else on Earth. The tallest plant, also known as Niera, stands at 500 meters tall and a 7-meter wide trunk.
All plants photosynthesise, giving them an Earth-like green colour. They all have a mechanism to defend themselves from herbivores, either turning their leaves into stinging netals or throwing off small parasites that would kill the animal.
Aerial creatures make their nests in the trees at the canopy layer where most of the sunlight is. Some of the trees produce an electrical charge, frying or even killing anything that lands on them. Plants at the bottom of the trees, where less than 1% of all the sunlight doesn't reach, produce bioluminescent lights, creating something most civilizations call Enchanted Forests.
The most dominant and intelligent species on Gerissia are the Gerixys, an interstellar civilization measuring a mid-Type II civilization on the Kardashev Scale. First appearing on the planet almost 3.5 million years ago, the Gerixy's have colonized every landmass on their planet with cities, supporting populations of 5 million to 10 million. The most populated city has a population of 13 million and is located on a beach.
Among the top 5 most populated cities on the planet, all five of those cities have space ports and space elevators for tourists.
The population of the entire planet is 15 billion. About 50% of the population is female, roughly 49% are male and 1% are unclassified due to disorders or diseases.
Orbiting Gerissia is a ring station that orbits at geosynchronous orbit. This ring station supplies interplanetary spaceships with fuel. It is connected to the surface of Gerissia with space elevators that can take almost up to a day to reach the station. Beyond the ring station is a system of satellites that form the Gerissian Network, or rather the central hub of the network.
The Gerissian Network (also known as the Gersa Network) is a network of satellites located within the Andromeda galaxy with the hub being the planet Gerissia. On the network is a hive of accounts and fact files of every Gerixy that ever lived. This is the only technological way for Gerixy's to become immortal, by uploading their memories to the network. Once a new Gerixy is born, their account on the network is automatically created with basic information such as their name and birth.
The network, however, does not store information on the Gerixy's or any civilization in the galaxy. The Gerissian Archives is located on the fifth planet out from the two suns, called Neia.
