Mind Tour of Mongo
It is too hot in Kever Benjamin so let's escape to Mongo. It is a rogue planet that travels through our solar system under the control of its dictator, Emperor Ming. Travelers to Mongo must pass through a "Death Zone" on the way, described by scientist Dr. Hans Zarkov as being "a zone devoid of any force".
The area around the Emperor's palace is desolate and devoid of vegetation. Giant dragons live in the nearby caves. Other vicious animals of Mongo include monkey men, orangopoids and white-striped, bear-like animals. The oceans of Mongo are home to giant sea life, including eels, sharks, water dragons and octosaks.
The people of Mongo have progressed scientifically beyond Earth. According to Ming, "the reason for our success is that we possess none of the human traits of kindness, mercy or pity! We are coldly scientific and ruthless!"
The capital of Mongo is Nascent City. The currency is the gold mingol (see pic) worth 2000 tugrigs. (from Wiki)
