Description:

A quiet, terrestrial world of varied landscapes, lush temperate zones, and adequate resources to support a low-level industrial society, Lipton is a curious planet. Prosperous, yet not overly so, Lipton achieved self-sufficiency in short order, and its early settlers, a mix of western European and North American peoples, came to enjoy their frontier life and trade with neighboring worlds.

When the Outer Reaches Rebellion broke out, Lipton's populace rebelled through passive resistance, refusing to offer up its people to serve as troops for the decaying Terran Alliance. Self-sufficiency lent the Liptoners a sense of independence that remained with them throughout the Star League era, and during the centuries afterward as part of the Lyran Commonwealth's rebellious Skye region. During the FedCom Civil War, in fact, many of the locals sided with the cause of Free Skye. The defeat of that secessionist movement, however, took the wind out of their own spirit of rebellion.

Today, Lipton is once more the quiet, industrious world it once was, though still regarded as something of a backwater. The greatest planetary export, in fact, is textiles, with Redstorm Fashions, Incorporated (a local clothier owned by the planetary governor) among the largest single corporations invested here. Unlike most worlds, the capital of Lipton City is not home to the primary spaceport on planet. Instead, most visitors arrive and depart through the interplanetary/suborbital traffic hub of Brannigan Field, located on Suresta, Lipton's equatorial island-continent, which offers connecting flights to points on the Noresta, Western and Eastern World continents.
