The planet Chin-Chin is held in the Naruto star system, which is located on the Scutum-Centaurus arm in the Milky Way Galaxy’s delta quadrant. Chin-Chin is located approximately 21,000 light years away from the planet Earth, and, compared to Earth, a year is about 526 Earth days and a day is about 24 hours and 27 minutes. In terms of size, Chin-Chin’s radius is approximately 4,890 kilometers, which, relative to Earth, is somewhere between the radius of Earth and its neighbor, Mars. Despite these similarities, Chin-Chin, unlike Earth, possesses a distinct axial tilt of 103 degrees. Moreover, its mass is slightly greater than Earth’s as a result of its core being made of a silver-palladium alloy, amounting to about 6.179*10^24 kilograms. In turn, Chin-Chin’s gravity is about 11.356 m/s^2. All in all, Chin-Chin is one of the most Earth-like planets in the Milky Way Galaxy in terms of mass, radius, and other quantifiable attributes.
While there is more to be discovered about the enigmatic religion of the people of Chin-Chin, we do have a wealth of knowledge of it at the moment. The main religion of this planet is “Filthy,” and the followers of this religion are deemed “Filth.” An estimated 99.6% of the inhabitants of Chin-Chin are Filthy, while the remaining 0.4% is constituted of agnostic theist or atheist colonists (mainly from Earth). While this religion is polytheistic, the chief deity, as shown on the homepage of the website, is the humanoid “Dark Lord Chin-Chin.” While it may seem to us that something dubbed a “Dark Lord” would be worshipped from fear, most Filth praise and respect Chin-Chin for being a benevolent god. However, once every 526 days (a year on this planet), the annual “Chin-Chin Sacrifices” are held. During this event, all Filth come together and sacrifice whatever they can to appease the great Dark Lord and to maintain his favor. This momentous occasion is not exclusive to Filth; non-believers are completely welcome and are encouraged to participate in the sacrifices. In terms of the other gods, it is not clear whether some are deities or some variation of saint, though important figures in Filthy include a humanoid that greatly resembles Chin-Chin (yet in pink attire instead of black) named “Pink Guy” and a humanoid that greatly resembles Guy Fieri the 1st of planet Earth. There are other figures worshipped by a small denomination of Filth known as “Dizastamusicians” such as a muscular humanoid dressed solely in a loincloth known as “Prometheus,” though little is known about this denomination as a whole. Filthy is overall one of the most peaceful religions in the Milky Way Galaxy, and is greatly respected by federations across the multiverse.
Though their religious practices and customs may make them seem somewhat primitive, Chin-Chinites are no slouches when it comes to technology. In fact, the people of Chin-Chin have been one of the leading producers of advanced technology in the past century in the whole Milky Way Galaxy. Since the people of Chin-Chin have incredibly technologically-focused upbringings, it is rare to encounter a Chin-Chinite unable to make a simple program by the age of two. Some of the best and most important innovations in technology have originated from Chin-Chin, such as the development of EMP inhibitors and impeders (which are necessary in this planet’s society, as one major outage could reap catastrophic effects), robots with human brains as CPUs, self-assimilating nanobots, and much more. The only thing the people of Chin-Chin worry about in terms of machinery and electronics is the development of a technological singularity, which could prove perilous to the whole multiverse.
The current inhabitants of Chin-Chin are humanoids known as “Skitur” that evolved similarly to humans in that they began as primates that originated on the planet and eventually turned to favoring bipedal movement, though they possess some major anatomical differences that distinguish them from humans from Earth. The first major difference is that Skitur have very flexible spines that allow for swift movement on all fours. Thanks to this, Skitur on foot (or rather, on foot and arm) can reach speeds that humans could never fathom of reaching (the current record for the fastest speed is 44.3 miles per hour). Despite this, Skitur will almost always favor movement on two legs: it feels more natural for them to move as bipeds than quadrupeds by far. On top of this, Skitur have organs that are better developed to handle the somewhat common harsh weather on Chin-Chin. For example, their livers could even filter out the acid from acid rain, allowing for a clean drink in desolate conditions. Thanks to this and the numerous other biological strengths of the Skitur, their lives can last up to 200 Chin-Chin years.
As previously stated, life is native to Chin-Chin, and, therefore, colonists did not bring life to the planet.
BIOMES AND ECOSYSTEMS
Chin-Chin’s ideal position from the Naruto star allows for a diverse, Earth-like distribution of life, though its most extreme environments are at the poles. At the North pole of Chin-Chin is a desert drier than Earth’s Atacama and hotter than the Sahara. To make matters worse, this pole’s atmosphere contains a considerably smaller oxygen content than the rest of the planet, while having a higher sulfur content. Here, very few organisms make their homes, and the ones that do are sturdy extremophiles similar to the tardigrade.
At the South pole is an ice-covered landmass very similar to Earth’s Antarctica, except much colder. The average temperature is around -95 degrees Celsius, and fewer organisms live here than in any other place on Chin-Chin. However, this is a very important location on the planet, as it houses underground radon mines. Chin-Chin is one of the only known locations in the Milky Way Galaxy known to have such high concentrations of radon, and the fact that the temperature is so cold that it is solid makes it much easier to gather (though at the same time, such low temperatures are difficult for even some Skitur to withstand).
Besides the poles, Chin-Chin possesses a multitude of biomes and even has a single, large ocean. One of the most famous locations on Chin-Chin is the Klamme Crater. The Klamme Crater is the site of an impact from a large meteor on Chin-Chin, though it is now a diverse tropical ecosystem. Inside the crater lays the largest rainforest on Chin-Chin, the Kostea, which is slightly submerged in the pool of water formed by the crater. Chin-Chin possesses a very diverse set of biomes and ecosystems as a whole, ranging from uninhabitable to very suitable for life.
CREATURES AND PLANTS
ECONOMY & TRade
As previously stated, the dominant intelligent life forms on Chin-Chin are Skitur, though there are many other forms of life native to and present in this planet. In the most treacherous of environments, tardigrade-like extremophiles thrive, such as the swelteringly hot and arid desert in the North pole, the frigid tundra of the South pole, or the hydrothermal vents of Chin-Chin’s vast ocean.
In the Kostea rainforest, several unique organisms make their homes. One example of these are the giant, telepathic “Megarantulas.” In terms of appearance, they are essentially tarantulas, except scaled to 5-6 feet in length. They are intelligent beings with average I.Q.’s more or less identical to those of Skitur, although Megarantula are able to communicate telepathically. Though 6 foot-long psychic spiders may seem nightmarish, the Skitur and Megarantulas made peace many years ago and have coexisted ever since.
Plant life on Chin-Chin is not lacking, either. In the Kostea rainforest, there are several species of plants that grow several times larger than the Redwood of planet Earth. These trees produce some of the best tasting fruit in the Milky Way Galaxy – no chef’s pantry is complete without fruit from Chin-Chin’s Kostea Rainforest. Aside from trees taller than skyscrapers, this planet is home to beautiful flowering plants whose blossoms greatly resemble the Dark Lord Chin-Chin. On the day of the Chin-Chin Sacrifices, these flowers bloom. It is unknown whether the sacrifices were set on the day that the flowers bloomed or if the flowers bloom as a result of the sacrifices.
Chin-Chin’s economy relies greatly on its aforementioned technological prowess, though it possesses a decent array of natural resources. The majority of Chin-Chin’s exports constitute advanced technology. Chin-Chin preserves its technology market by heavily enforcing the use of patents in this field, and the government does what it can to encourage constant economic and general development in this area. Chin-Chin is known for being one of the most technologically advanced and innovative planets in the whole Milky Way Galaxy.
Chin-Chin also contains a considerable amount of natural resources, some of which are exclusive to the planet. The aforementioned radon mines serve as a great source of wealth for Chin-Chinites, especially since the radon is in a solid state, resulting in a greater density of the substance than if it were collected in its usual gaseous state. Another export of Chin-Chin’s is the fruit from the tall trees native to the Kostea rainforest. These fruits are famed for being one of the best-tasting foods in the galaxy, and chefs commonly incorporate them into their dishes for the flavor.
