The Land of Wind and Shade (LOWAS) is a planet that exists in S* recurrence 37-24-55:44 380 339, in Hypertonic Patch A44180. What will you do in a world of oil and hyperdense rock?

1. The Planet, Astronomically:
Pre-generated planet, by definition.
Skaia 37-24-55:44 380 339, equally by definition. This so-called sun is completely useless as a light-giver. Without the Hidden Lamps of LOLAR, LOWAS, like the other two, are in eternal night.
0.04 AU, completely circular. Note that LOWAS is in 1:1:1:1 orbital resonance with the other three planets of Skaia.
Irrelevant. See "day", below.
37.48 years. Really irrelevant due to how long each of these universes last.
It's that same, muggy temperature all year round anywhere in the world. Like Venus, only cold.
What day? The planet is spinless. That's right, the planets are born without a spin!
Also none. Also what?
2. The Planet, Physically:
8,793,378,327,000,000,000 kg. If you want, that's 8 × 10^18 kg, or one-millionth of Earth's.
55 000 t/m^3! Superdense rock is the only way that the planet can be that small!
7244 km. Much smaller than Earth, but still enough to hold on to an atmosphere. Well, more of an atmosphere than ambient anyway.
164 900 000 sq km in total.
1.14 G, or 11·184 m/s^2.
about 6 hours.
Air loss over time
Minimal. If the atmosphere is defined as any place where there's air and its pressure is more than 1.01 atm, then the air loss will be about 5 GL/century-1.
3. The Planet, Geologically:
0.004 351 J m-2s-1
No water, but oil is everywhere. If all that of oil is water, it'd amount to 12.6% of the Earth.
61% of the world, chopping the planet into two roughly equal continents. It runs down a meridian, grows fatter and thinner at times, but it's basically a divider. It's pretty wide though, but fairly shallow: only 1500 m deep on average.
The remaining 39% of the world. Two major continents. They're made out of slightly less dense rock at 484 t/m^3, but it's still immensely heavy. (This ties in well with the flashes; ever wondered why John can't kick the little stones? They weigh half a ton!
None. This planet has no hot core anymore. In fact, it was never born with a hot core.
World-wide average: 18°C
Very little below sea level, with the lowest point being only 2.4 km below the sea. The land is crazy rugged though, and the highest point is of course the spire that John's house sits upon, at almost 30 km up. It's well approaching 1 atm there. (1 atm is the ambient in the Incipisphere.)
One. No spin.
4. The Planet, Atmospherically:
Shared with all else in the Incipisphere, a sample of Earth air. Piles to 1.9 atm at the bottom of the planet; thins to 1 atm at the top.
Air pressure at sea level
1.9 atm. Theoretically, it's dense enough that given leather wings a human can fly without expending too much energy, but wings were not generated at the time of the birth of the planet.
0.34 mU, like Earth's.
grey, due to the clouds. Indigo without them.
100% due to the stupid creature under the megatonne rocks.
With Earth as 100, 4. This thing sucks in as much radiation as it can.
5. The Planet, Biologically:
6% of Earth's. Average density: 8% of Earth's. Average sea density: 0% of Earth's.
There are only like ten species!
One, although their intelligence is questioned.
One again, although again it's really stretching the definition of civilization. There is some kind of religion bounding them all but that's it.
