Yres, once a proud monarchy ruled directly by the Marquis von
Talbot, was reduced to anarchy after the 4th Frontier War.
Although, the war was won, the Marquis was killed, and the planet
broke out into rebellion against the ruling family. After two
decades of police action on Yres, the Imperium has broken the
revolutionary movement and established two rival governments on
the world: The Wonderful Community, a religious dictatorship with
strict moral codes, and the YLU (Yresian Liberty Union), a
charismatic dictatorship ruled by popular conservative, Arthur

The starport, nested in the small neutral zone between the two
nations, displays the Imperium's indifference between the two
rival governments. Since the revolution, the household of von
Talbot relocated to Menorb and has been elevated in status to the
seat of the 8th County of Regina.

The world's 34 million inhabitants, as divided as they are, can
no longer instill rebellion for fear of being crushed by each
other. However, neither can they choose a productive course for
the world. This social conflict, as deadly as the corrosive
atmosphere of the world, has created a climate of fear and
desperation, where large-scale sabotage in the vast underground
cities is commonplace. It is even rumored by high-level sources
that TAS is currently in deliberation with the rival governments
over whether or not to classify the planet as an amber zone.

Nugget, essentially a large ball of ice with a small but dense
rocky core, has been leased to Naugrim Enterprises, a sector-wide
corporation with 7000 employees positioned locally. According to
company spokespeople, Naugrim is conducting a speculative mining
operation in order to determine the world's mineral assets, if

The research station on Lark's World was originally set-up to
investigate an abnormality in an otherwise common world. The
planet's molten core is roughly a tenth of a percent of what
should be expected given its size, age, and orbital radius.
Fifty-four Imperial scientists (including a sixteen member team
specializing in xeno-archeology) are currently stationed on the
world researching the phenomenon.
