In the latter half of the twenty-fifth century, however, miners digging deep into the Tupik Chasm for a new vanadium vein instead stumbled upon a remarkable find in the form of a vast underground reservoir of fresh water. Other such subterranean lakes and seas were discovered deep below Dyev's surface over the following decades, mostly near the northern hemispheric canyons, and elaborate irrigation systems were devised to bring this water to the people for farming and general use.
During the Amaris Crisis, the Usurper's troops attempted to poison these reserves to bring the people of Dyev to heel, and succeeded in irrevocably tainting a third of the underground seas before Kerensky's forces rolled over them during the liberation. When the Draconis Combine claimed Dyev after the League's fall, the Kuritan leadership directed more energies toward restoring the planet's many damaged mining operations than addressing the water shortage, and thus Dyev has relied more and more on ice imports over the centuries that followed.
Despite this handicap, however, this world has prospered through the years of war, exporting valuable metal ores such as vanadium, chromium, and even a limited quantity of germanium - all valuable to the production of heavy industrial and military equipment. The capital city of Dyev, Novaya Mensk, is located in the northern hemisphere, on the eastern shore of the Morye Syevir ocean, and serves as the commercial and administrative heart of the planet.
Meanwhile, Trogport, a sprawling spaceport city just south of the larger Aleutican Ocean in the southern hemisphere, is the planet's primary connection to interstellar commerce. Trogport also serves as the home for a majority of the local aerospace defense forces, and as home to the headquarters offices of several local mining concerns.
