Cetus Minor is at the heart of the Cetus Nebula and is the centre of the rimward cluster that makes up the furthest reach of the subsector. As a result, despite being a minor Industrial/Civilised world it has become an important administrative hub for the Rimward cluster and is considered second only to Cetus Major despite other worlds being richer or more suitable.
The Capital city and seat of power is Minoris, a large sprawling city mostly made of grey stone and rockcrete. It is dominated by the Governor's palace built upon a promontory, facing off across the city centre to the Cathedral, a tall structure of imported cream stone.
