Trowo /tɹo.wo , tro.wo/ is the 4th planet from Sýfāx. It is home to over 94 billion people and is the seat of the United Trowo government. It is the birthplace of humanity (well at least in this conworld) and the single, most influential world in United Trowo. Many who live on other worlds see travelling to Trowo as a spiritual journey to discover their own roots, as well as the go to place for vacations. 

Trowo is orbited by a single natural satellite Yewhuan , which has been terraformed and is home to over 400 million. There are over 400 space stations orbiting Trowo. The orbital ring Guldian also circles above Trowo. 

Name and Etymology

It is still unknown where the word "Trowo" orignated from. Most linguists believe that unlike most objects that have been named by what they are or what they represent, Trowo was an alternative word for "world" (guld in Modern Unitican, *tudho in Old Unitican) and likely implied that the first humans had a concept that this world was also a planet, which is one of many.

Properties

Trowo is a habitable planet, very slightly larger and more massive than Earth (in the real world). Orbiting the star Sýfāx, a G-type main-sequence star about 1.05 times the mass of the Sun. Trowo orbits Sýfāx at 1.2AU, and has an average temperature slightly lower than Earth.

The mass of the planet is 6.0996 x 1024; composed mainly from Iron, Oxygen, Silicon, Magnesium, Sulfur, Nickel, Calcium and Aluminum. The structure of Trowo resembles Earth, with a crust, upper mantle, lower mantle, outer core and inner core. Trowo has active plate tectonics, and a magnetic field very slightly stronger than Earth's. Trowo however, possesses more geothermal heat than Earth, having formed earlier and retaining more of its heat of formation. This leads to more tectonic movements and frequent volcanic eruptions.
