Your space colony is still excessively big for TL11. A capacity of 900 million is.....let's be polite and call it extreme. I seriously doubt you'd have a extra-large nation's worth of people who wanted to leave Earth just to move into a really big apartment building. Even a major metropolis's worth is a maybe yes/maybe no.

.....but this takes up back to "It's your setting and you can put what you want into it.".
Ahh; I mistook your point. Yeah, from that perspective, the math doesn't work out, even with a lot of people already in space. 8 Flora already probably has some significant fraction of that populace; but even then, they wouldn't have moved in all at once.

Even as a "wonder project", that makes it too large. I'm going to edit it down by -2 SM...
In which I post about a TL9-10 solar system

If you don't know why I said something, please ask. Assumptions are the death of courtesy.

Disappointed in the behaviour I have too-often encountered here.
