Masada was a human-inhabited planet in the Endicott System and the home of the Masada theocratic State.
Masada was the only habitable planet in the system.
The planet had a forty-degree axial tilt. The weather was more severe than the weather on Grayson as a result, but its environment and even the flora and fauna were much more compatible with human life. In particular, the toxic heavy metal burden of the ecosphere was much lower than on Grayson. Masada's orbital radius was barely a quarter that of Grayson. (HH2)
