A non-industrial world located in the Regina Subsector of the Spinward Marches, Boughene is a member of the Imperium and the system contains a Scout Base.
Boughene is the only rocky body in a very sparse system. The planet serves as a gravity well for the starport, which is a nexus for the Xboat network in the subsector. The population all works for the starport authority – no one actually lives on Boughene due to the expense involved in creating a colony to survive in the fluorine atmosphere, although a few work there extracting valuable chemical compounds from primitive exotic lifeforms.
General Products LIC has its corporate headquarters here, taking up a significant portion of the highport. The starport used to belong to General Products, but in 822 a cabal of local company executives engineered the sale of the station to themselves and applied to the Imperium for membership. GP eventually accepted the new situation.
