A desert planet with a very unforgiving climate - it is currently in the process of being terraformed. It features lush oases and nature preserves that support the farming of Silk, the precious substance needed for Cube and Resurrection technology.
Bourak is the home of Haqqislam, a unified power and a state comprising both those faithful to Allah and seekers of Knowledge that come from the entire Human Sphere. Mirroring this diversity, the planet is divided into different semi-autonomous democratic regions that have their own characteristic and distinct idiosyncrasies, but they are all fully committed to the Search for Knowledge - the philosophical journey of Haqqislam.
