Mining settlements soon arose, particularly on the northern island continent of Geir. Rather than erect expensive domes, the settlers built their cities underground, making use of their expanding mining tunnels and natural subterranean caverns - some even large enough to accommodate 'Mech traffic - formed by geologic outgassing. Early terraforming efforts were underway by the dawn of the Star League era, with vast expanses of genetically tailored algae employed across the global seas to convert some of the excess carbon dioxide to oxygen. The effort was only partially complete, however, when the Succession Wars began.
As a wealthy border world, Laiaka suffered from numerous raids throughout the Succession Wars. Though determined defenders and Laiaka's own unpredictable subterranean labyrinths often thwarted these invasions, the centuries of raiding set back terraforming efforts. Laiaka's atmosphere returned quickly to its natural state, a steamy near-toxic hell preferred only by the native flora. The planetary capital, Bunker City, is located on Geir's central plains, on the shores of the Great Geir River, and features Laika's few surface structures, including the gantries of the Bunker City Spaceport. The southern continent of Preiska, however, boasts its own local capital and spaceport city, Yaleston.
