Ramaxicon and Ixco
Ramaxicon (ram-acks-ee-kon) formed over four billion years ago; she is the third planet from Suva and the largest of the Suvaxiyul’s four terrestrial planets. One orbit around Suva while rotating on its axis 286.2 times, creates 285.12 solar days, or one sidereal year. Ixco (iks-koh) is her only natural satellite, and its gravitational interaction causes ocean tides, stabilizes the orientation of Ramaxicon’s rotational axis, and maintains the 22.04 hours per day, rotational rate.
Ramaxicon’s last mass near extinction involved a population called the helovx. At their peak, there were over 7.3 billion helovx on Ramaxicon, all dependent on its biosphere and minerals for survival. Helovxi faced extinction after the Eros Impact Event of 2022, and the 2025 Valentine’s Day Eruption of a super volcano, in North America. Since the early 21st century, Ramaxicon has been dominated by the southern polar Femmar.
Ramaxicon has 22 hours and 4 minutes in a day.
The Ramaxi Calender is the planetary standard.

- Beginning and end of Surface Night: 21 Yuli – 19 Jixak
Ramaxicon’s lithosphere is divided into several migrating tectonic plates. These plates move across the surface over periods of many millions of years. Ramaxicon’s interior remains active with a solid iron inner core, a liquid outer core that generates the magnetic field, and a convecting mantle that drives plate tectonics. 85% of the planet’s surface is covered with water; her continents and islands hold many lakes and other sources of water that contribute to the hydrosphere. The southern polar region is mostly covered with ice. The prime ice-sheet over the southern polar continent experienced little melt during initial planetary warming that followed and impact event in the 21st century. The volcanic winter of the Dark Years allowed the polar ice to retain its thickness in the east, while western glaciers and ice-sheets melted over time.
