A prime candidate for full depopulation within the next decade, Waverly is a planet in desperate straits. ist is also known as Waxatha.

Those few ships which do visit Waverly do not get swamped by desperate emigres as in other Doomed communities. Instead, the arrival of a ship is handled in a somber fashion. The local leaders politely request to purchase as many low passages as the ship can offer. They then conduct a lottery among the entire population to see who gets those berths. Any persons who attempt to stow away or otherwise attempt illegally to obtain passage are cast into Waverly’s lethal atmosphere, and the rest of the community is forced to watch, in order to teach adherence to the lottery.

This grim approach is paying off. Those few captains who do pass through Waverly have come to respect its people and always try to come back for a few extra passengers, including a few whose tickets are "on the house."
