A survey mission discovered the world that would become the capital of the Clans in 2792. Aleksandr Kerensky's wife Katyusha named it Strana Mechty, Land of Dreams. Slightly colder than Terra, Strana Mechty was nonetheless ideally suited to colonization and by 2800 was thriving. Most native species proved benign, through the crana - a rodent-sized insect known as a vector for disease - proved problematic until the star adder was introduced to control their numbers. Other introduced species flourished, adapting well to the environmental conditions. Many of the Clan totem animals are descended from Terran stock introduced to Strana Mechty.

The planet consists of four major landmasses: icy and mineral-poor Cameron in the southern hemisphere, warm and wet McKenna straddling the equator, and Novy Terra and Kerensky Prime in the temperate northern latitudes. Numerous archipelagos and island groups dot the freshwater oceans, all named after Star League and Terran Hegemony heroes. Care is taken to maintain an equal division of land (though not resources) between all the Clans on Strana Mechty. The enclave of any Clan Absorbed, ejected or destroyed is divided between those who remain. Thus, while each Clan maintains the original block of land granted to it by Nicholas Kerensky, each also controls several enclaves scattered across the planet. Control of the southern continent of Cameron, formerly dominated by Widowmaker and Mongoose holdings, has fragmented under this policy. When the SLDF staged the Great Refusal, Cameron was the logical venue, having the lowest population and being divided among all the Clans.

The capital city of all the Clans, Katyusha, is located on Novy Terra and is renowned as a marketplace, legitimate and otherwise. Distinct from any Clan enclave, a special police force drawn from all Clans - associated with but not part of the Ebon Keshik - maintains order in the city. Their area of responsibility includes the Clans' master genetic repository that dominates the city and ends at the boundaries of the Svoboda Zemyla, the great park that surrounds the Hall of Khans complex. The park and the complex fall under the authority of the highly respected Ebon Keshik.

The McKenna's Pride, flagship to both Kerensky's, remains in geo-stationary orbit above Katyusha, maintained and operated by a crew from all the Clans. The vessel remains a trust of the Grand Council until the day one Clan is designated the ilClan by capturing Terra.

Located in the outer reaches of the Strana Mechty system is the darkest and most foreboding prison in Clan space, the infamous Prinz Eugen. The vessel is synonymous with rebellion, and so no clan would take it into their Touman. Instead, it serves as a veritable Alcatraz or Europa for the Clans. Its inmates are predominantly members of the civilian castes too influential to execute or exile. Only a handful of warriors are currently serving on the vessel; convicted warriors normally fight a trial of refusal and are either vindicated or die in the process. Those who do not fight a trial, or who lose one and survive may find themselves on the Prinz Eugen, the ultimate degradation.
