Discovered shortly after the collapse of the Terran Alliance, Kikuyu was slowly colonized by refugees from New Zealand, Tasmania and the Australian continent. A desert world, the planet only has one continent named Queensland, with two large archipelagos named New Tasmania and Auckland. Queensland had similar qualities to the Terran continent of Australia, satisfying most of the colonists.

The center of the continent is a vast desert wasteland named the “Great Victorian Desert.” Beneath the reddish-tan soil lies the reason Kikuyu was colonized – radioactive ores and rare metals. The southern coast of Queensland is the fertile basin of Jelto Ran Delta, where the planetary capital of New Sydney was established.

The archipelago islands were set up s nation states, thanks to the nationalism of the New Zealander and Tasmanian refugees. Auckland Archipelago was named in honor of a city located on the North Cape. Willington is the capital, located on the northern coast. New Tasmania, with its capital of New Hobart, is the smallest of the landmasses. It has also proven to be the toughest to settle, in part due to the appearance of Kikuyu’s own version of the Tasmanian Devil. This sixty-kilogram carnivore proved to be even nastier than its Terran counterpart.
