Due to the lower mass of Koneth's moon, its tides are slightly lower than Earth's tides. Koneth's axial tilt is smaller than Earth's resulting in milder seasons.

However, not all is milder on Koneth than Earth. Koneth is more geologically active than Earth, possibly due to its larger mass and concomittant slower internal cooling. About 50 million years ago, a former supercontinent, Pankonethea, began to break up. At present, most of the planet's continents are still close to each other. However, not all the landmass of Koneth was involved in this supercontinent. A north-polar continent also existed at that time, and is currently migrating towards the equator, resulting in a unique ecology, as it was formerly nearly lifeless and has since been colonized by life from other parts of the globe.
