The North Pole is also home to a geographical phenomenon that makes Vinsoth something of a focal point with geographers. It contains a desert climate sandwiched between icy wastes and extensive oceans. No one is quite sure how this was achieved, though some cite it as a man-made feature by early settlers to provide a climate to raise desert creatures, despite affirmations by the local populace that it is entirely natural, and offering their own reasons for its appearance. Regardless, the desert of Vinsoth is an incredibly popular tourist attraction, and the beach resort is usually always full (due to climate controlling to heat the area around the desert).
The Planet Vinsoth also is home to the species of Chevin, and a race of humans known as the Chev. Both species, though having fought vast and bloody wars in the past for control of areas of the planet, now live in harmony, and are carefully sectioned to prevent any further unrest. It was thought the Chevin evolved naturally on the planet, whilst the Chev are the descendants of the first settlers on the planet, most probably redberry farmers.
