Cardinal worlds are one of the sub-types of the Civilised World classification, and share the same properties such as self-sufficiency and at minimum, a moderate technological level. They are Ecclesiarchy worlds, ruled directly by the Ministorum, with the planetary governor also being a Cardinal. Temples and other religious sanctuaries often cover vast areas of the planet.
