Population The Population characteristic measures, obviously, the planet's population. The Population digit can be viewed as the number of zeroes following a one, so a population of 6 indicates a population in the millions (1,000,000). Population is generated as a 2d6-2 throw. Digit Population Range Description 0 Few 0+ A tiny farmstead or a single family

That said, do pass on what Gar answers; it's the sure way to get an absolute answer on this.
