Description:

Though the primary sun in this system is a white-hot A-class subdwarf, all planets in the Cor Caroli system orbit the cooler, more stable F0-class star, like moons around their own distant planet. Even with a mean distance of 680 astronomical units between them, the effects of the unstable subdwarf can be felt on the planets themselves, with bursts of electromagnetic radiation frequently disrupting local communications and spaceborne navigational systems.

Mineral-rich, both on the planetary surface and in its expansive asteroid ring, and blessed by a breathable atmosphere and a biosphere suitable to human habitation, Cor Caroli itself quickly attracted entrepreneurial colonists, eager to strike it rich in precious metals and manufacturing. Unfortunately, a failed effort to transport some of the smaller iron- and nickel-rich asteroids to the surface, using specially modified mass drivers, led to the disastrous loss of several early settlements on the northeastern Carboniri continent and several decades of what locals called a "mild nuclear winter".

Despite this early tragedy, expansion and further industrialization of Cor Caroli proceeded apace, attracting the attention of the growing Federation of Skye and the Terran Hegemony, both of which eventually established businesses on planet. By the time of the Star League, Cor Caroli was another Lyran/Terran border world mutually administered by the Commonwealth and the Hegemony, a fact that made it easy for the Lyrans to absorb the world after the Star League's collapse.

During the Succession Wars, Cor Caroli was raided several times by Houses Marik and Kurita, damaging many of the local industries and mining operations. Though efforts to repair these were nearly continuous throughout this era, roughly twenty percent of the planet's industry had been irrevocably lost by the mid-thirty-first century. Cor Caroli's capital and largest city, Corriolas, is located on the northwestern continent of Ferrini. Caroli Mining Consortium, the largest of the planet's industrial mining corporations, is based in Maureen, the largest city on the southern continent of Nikallini. Cor Caroli's fourth landmass, the southern polar continent of Pluribi, is virtually uninhabited.
