The Planet Vega II
Truly stunning for an inhabited world, Aremis is orbited by a set of planetary rings that contain a number of small shepherd moons. The planet’s biosphere, while adapted for Human comfort in the terraformation process, evolved naturally and gave rise to a significant amount of flora and fauna which still survive.
Aremis was the second planet settled in the Vega system. For most of its ‘life,’ Vega II existed as home for a series of naval and other military bases, as well as a popular location for shore leave. The planet plays host to significant bases for all four services, including one of the oldest UEE Army facilities, Camp (General Chester C.) Manheim. That dynamic has changed in recent years. Aremis has benefited the most from the recent population boom, resulting in several small cities of note and the development of much farmland.
This influx of population has invigorated the system after being named a ‘planet to watch’ by the New United. The city of New Corvo is currently the largest on the world, and is where all off-world commerce occurs; it is becoming quite the center of culinary science within the UEE. Many economists speculate that Vega II will surpass its sister planet, Selene, within a few years, and soon exceed Selene’s stature even back in the height of its expansion. The local Governors Council has also aggressively been pursuing an application for recognition by the Senate. They have even taken steps to procure freelance mercenaries to support and reinforce local police and militia to diminish their crime stats.
