Vega Uniwarsum

Post by ligtsfinks » 05 Apr 2019 23:58

Vega Uniwesum
This is the world from my novel. The main planet is Vega circling around Proxima centauri. The day lasts 28 hours and 365 days of these days.
The most important country is the Kingdom of Aralia and the head of state: JKM Olert IV Temoron, king, Arali, Ingustian prince, diocesan bishop of Myth. The media is 90% state-owned. The Aralian Radio and Press broadcasts from the studio in Myth, an aral of 5-5-25, and from the Pene, an English-language two-hour block of flats (evening, for the second change).
Capital city: Myth
The largest city: Pene
Legislative authorities are ministerial committees, whose members are elected in majority elections from the national list for the period to be dismissed, on demand, by the minister or referendally.
The dominant Church is the Torian Church. It is a polytheistic church with dioceses in the whole known universe. The center of this church is Pene

This doesn't make sense. Proxima Centauri is a red dwarf, so a habitable planet would have to be much closer to it than Earth, with the year being much shorter. Indeed, it would be so close that it is probably tidally locked, so no 28-hour day. This makes it quite unlikely that the planet is actually habitable; many scientists opine that such a planet would be airless and completely dry. (And actually, a planet orbiting at the "right" distance has been found; its orbital period is 11.186 days. We don't know yet whether it is habitable or not, though.) Perhaps you were thinking of Alpha Centauri A, which is slightly bigger than the Sun but otherwise very similar, so your orbital period makes sense there.
