The variety of terrain offers highly distinctive native lifeforms; large lizard-like animals similar to the Terran Komodo dragon are abundant in the desert areas, while the forests teem with opossum-like creatures who are so agile either on the ground or in trees that only the most excellent marksman can bring one down. Along the seacoast, there are fat but graceful land/sea mammals that seem to disappear without a trace at the first scent of humans. In addition, there is a small mushroom-like plant that can uproot itself to move to more fertile ground or to avoid danger. All of these lifeforms are adept at avoiding traps, and all of them are delicious.
With the signing of the Star League Accords in 2569, the Terran Hegemony, and Terra in particular, became an important center of activity. Naturally, the Court of the Star League in Unity City was the prime focus.
To show the united nature of the League, the interior of the court was built with materials from every corner of human space. From Bharat, teakwood was carved by artisans and encrusted with gems.
Apart from its rare-wood exports, attempts to industrialize Bharat mostly failed. Bharat's only military manufacturer, Killosh Industries, declared bankruptcy when its Magi anti-infantry tank suffered poor sales. Killosh eventually retooled to produce logging equipment and vehicles for Bharat's lumber companies.
After the fall of the First Star League, the Capellan Confederation claimed Bharat. With no industrial resources, Bharat stayed untouched through most of the Succession Wars, and Capellans vacationed on Bharat to hunt the planet's unusual and delicious reptiles, sea mammals, and mobile fungi. The Federated Suns took Bharat from the Capellan Confederation with little bloodshed in the Fourth Succession War, and Bharat enjoyed continued prosperity during the Second Star League.
The southern continent of Vidya is home to the capital of Chakra. The two northern continents are Veerta and Vinamrata.
