For centuries since its founding, New Capetown has been one of House Steiner's ugliest worlds — not for its geography or climate, but for its backward cultural attitude. Founded by white South Afrikaaners of the New Calvinist sect, the world's people lived under blatantly racist rule where skin color defined social class before all other considerations.
Though the planet exported various commercial products and raw materials badly needed by many of its neighbors, many traders found it difficult to stomach doing business with the predominantly white-supremacist New Capetowners, a fact which stunted the planet's economic growth. Despite this, the world became host to a major military institution, the Royal New Capetown Military Academy.
In the mid-3030s, a concerted effort sponsored by Archon Katrina Steiner led to the toppling of the repressive government and the institution of a more egalitarian leadership to bring this world back to modern times. Though largely successful, pockets of racism still exist on New Capetown, and their effects are still felt in the halls of the RCNMA, though much of this hatred is now focused squarely on the Clans.
New Capetown's capital of New Hope (formerly New Johannesburg) is located on the southern Pretoria continent. The RCNMA, though based just outside the city, also maintains training fields on the planet's other large landmass, Eissia, in the north.
