Description:

Blessed with huge tracts of untamed forests, extensive mineral resources, and mountainous reaches, Terra Firma, in many ways, was considered a twin to the nearby Capolla. Colonized jointly with Capolla by a collection of small corporations and independent homesteaders, trade between both worlds led to a prosperous and semi-symbiotic relationship even before the formation of the Terran Hegemony and the Star League.

This relationship worked so well that both worlds supported a strong and diverse economic and social base without the need for major military industries. In a deal brokered at the twin system's entry into the Hegemony, Terra agreed to a limited autonomy for both worlds - a policy that every successive power after the Hegemony assumed as well.

In the chaos that erupted following the collapse of the Federated Commonwealth, much of Terra Firma's landscape and many cities were damaged by heavy fighting. The formation of the Terracap Confederation with Capolla helped Terra Firma to recover, but aid from the Word of Blake, in exchange for the right to place military bases and "defensive forces" on the planet, truly brought the planet's ravaged infrastructure back from the brink. Pledging a continued hands - off policy in the tiny alliance's political and business affairs, and their troops to the defense of both worlds, the Blakists earned the support - and, in some cases, fear - of the Terra Firma population.

Terra Firma has two main continents - Rusalaia the primary continent, and Reniki, the smaller, equatorial continent to the east. The capital city, Aserlitz, home to the planet's single spaceport, is located on Rusalaia's northern coast. On Reniki, Ballard-Dukempic Foods of Keid maintains a branch office in the city of Nystoll. A recovering industry with a history dating back to the glory days of the Star League, the foodstuffs super-corporation now oversees most of the farming and ranching industries that are once more on the rise in Reniki's open plains.
