Red Deserts have only one virtue - The Faraday Academy (to build
shields). Beyond this, they are impractical. They can provide silicon, which
is sometimes in high demand, but mountains and sandlands offer other precious
metals for the same price of fifteen structures. Iron is another major export
of red deserts, but who needs iron? You cannot build a foundry on these
impractical worlds, and only a desperate fool exports iron...
