The Grudovo Pendant is a j-1 cluster of 13 worlds that connects Tobia/Trojan Reach with neighboring Usher/Reft. Originally a cluster of little economic presence or importance, its economic value has risen in proportion with the rising volume of trade that passes between Lintl and Tobia.

Grudovo is another important link world on the Rim Highway. Its port is unusually large, as it services the large bulk freighters and container carriers of the major shipping lines. In antebellum times, the world produced electrical components for export to industrial worlds like Tobia. The world was originally owned by Sagashimur Technical, a Naasirka subsidiary that produced generation equipment and infrastructure. Production was halted by the Civil War, but resumed in response to massive demand for Virus resistant power systems. All of the world's water comes from harvesting of Oort cloud material insystem, years of poor environmental controls having polluted local ground water with large concentrations of chemical solvents and heavy metals.
