Overpopulation occurs when a species population exceeds the carrying capacity of its ecological niche. Planets with a 13k km diameter have around a 500 million individual carrying capacity, assuming they wish to retain all existing species that evolved there before them for posterity and aim to successfully manage their existence. It can result from an increase in births (fertility rate), a decline in the mortality rate, an increase in immigration, an unsustainable biome, depletion of resources or several other reasons. Moreover, it means that if there are too many folk in the same habitat, those folk are limiting the availability of resources available for other folk to survive. Thriving, prospering and growing; flourishing, slows, even ceases without anyone knowing about it nor what it was like before; in societies where overpopulation is a subject that too few dare address and where there is an absence of public dialogue about the progression of time and/or commentary is silenced for whatever reason. There are many reasons why so few dare speak about it and that its never been addressed publicly in most countries; one of those reasons is the inevitable conversation of having to exist with less and the uncomfortable manoeuvres folk will have to make in silence to palliate the effects of more for less.
