Denhui-Eight, homeworld of the Baragwin race, is just about as wet as a world can be without being a water world. Almost sixty percent of the planet's surface comprises freshwater oceans and horizon-spanning swamps and marshes. Of the surface area that is not inundated with water, half of it is sawgrass and palmetto covered grasslands that sit atop layers of water-saturated peat, while the remaining half is composed of forest-covered or rocky outcroppings no more than two-hundred meters above sea-level. Indeed, the highest point on the planet, Mount Skyward, reaches a height of only four hundred fifty-seven meters.
With so much of the planet's surface at or below the waterline, the planet's wildlife is concentrated there as well. Denhui-Eight's freshwater animal and plant life is almost bewildering in its variety, comparable to any coral reef on Mon Cala or Giju. The wonderful variety of colorful freshwater fish and shrimp made Denhui-Eight a hub for the aquarium industry. Overfishing was rampant and almost resulted in the local extinction of some of the most beautiful species. Fortunately, since the year fifty-three BCGT, the local Baragwin government, together with concerned non-governmental organizations throughout the galaxy, was able to impose strict quotas and controls on the wild capture of these species. This, together with successful captive breeding programs, has seen the population of most of the endangered fish and crustacean species recover enough to be taken off the Endangered Species list. Aquaculture has replaced the wild capture of fish and crustaceans as the planet's main economic activity.
Today, Denhui-Eight is an idyllic and peaceful world. The only large urban center is the city of Barag, with its starport. The Baragwin lead lives of harmony with nature, traveling the surface in family groups aboard flat-bottomed barges and air cushion vehicles. Indeed, Barag has a reputation as one of the foremost centers of development for air cushion vehicles and fan boats in the entire galaxy.
