By far the largest group of settlers colonizing Poznan were from Spain. They claimed the four largest continents, located mostly in the equatorial zone, naming them Barcelona, Palma, Seville, and Zaragoza. On Barcelona, the largest of the four, they set up the eventual planetary capital of New Madrid. Here they thrived and traded with their neighbors in the north and south. The refugees from Portugal settled on the island continent of Galicia. Galicia was rich in minerals, precious metals, and titanium ore.
During the next two centuries, Poznan flourished-but not without strife. A civil war was fought between the Poles and Spaniards over Palma. The war was ugly and brutal. The Spaniards won, and a planetary government was formed. Shortly after that war, they were offered membership into the Duchy of Liao in 2320. Over the next three hundred years, Poznan's population increased tenfold, with many of Chinese descent immigrating and pushing the Spaniards into the minority - and they were treated as such.
When Davion forces captured Poznan during the Fourth Succession War, they helped relieve the oppression caused by the Chinese population. When the Confederation regained control, the people were wary of their future. The Chancellor decreed that nothing would change, and left the current leadership in place. This act did more to win the hearts of the people than anything else.
