Description:

The first colonists to Fomalhaut saw a world blessed with an unlimited water supply and lush semitropical forestlands. Only a pair of small landmasses - Oanhu in the southern hemisphere, and Lyria in the equatorial zone - and a few dozen islands rise from the Endless Seas, Fomalhaut's planetwide ocean.

Settlers, most descended from the Hawaiian and Filipino cultures of Terra, readily took to this planet, and established themselves on every landmass that could support life before too long. Exploiting the natural beauty, unique three-moon nightscape, and infinite emerald seas, these settlers made Fomalhaut into a resort world. Larger industries failed to take root on the planet, though an orbital ore-refining station was established to take advantage of the metals found on the volcanic inner moon of Scarlet.

By the time of the Star League, very little had changed on Fomalhaut, and the planet was a favorite getaway for the Terran Hegemony's idle rich. The lack of heavy industry spared the world much of the damage inflicted by Amaris forces during the final days of the Star League, save for the destruction of the Scarlet refining station and the planetary spaceport of Otaku. Thus, when the Draconis Combine claimed the world after the League's fall, they too benefited from the tranquil beauty of this ocean world, though the centuries of near-constant warfare led to the planet being raided by hostile troops on more than one occasion.

The capital city of Lollanda, is situated on Oanhu.

[3025] Drearson City is home to the headquarters of O'Keefre Importers-Exporters. This massive import-export firm was once one of the Star League's largest firms, almost single-handedly controlling the flow of public goods in and out of the League. The company's many freighters were a common sight in all parts of the Inner Sphere and Periphery. When the League collapsed, most of the firm's JumpShips and transports were seized by whatever member-state they happened to be traveling through.

This left O'Keefre stripped of its ability to make money. The wars, especially the many battles for Fomalhaut, destroyed most of the company's remaining assets, but O'Keefre survived and now has reason to be optimistic. The recent alliance between the Federated Suns and the Lyran Commonwealth puts O'Keefre in an advantageous position to play a key role in the coming wave of trade between the two realms.
