"Mundane" might be a possibility, to reflect what I call "Tech".  But 
that means the Star Trek universe would be a Mundane World.  (okay, 
maybe Superhuman, but Tech seems to drive it.)

The world type is independent from the threat level.  What's a bigger 
threat:  the Strategic Air Command, Smaug, or Rippy Offy?  If an even 
bigger threat comes along later (to follow up on that Smaug example), 
should it really change the world type?

By the current rules of the Congress, the world type goes into the world 
name.  So it has to fit into *one character*.  That's how they come up 
with tags like "SW10".  Why yes, that's *their* tag.  But rest assured, 
they have codes for threat level as well.
