The planet enjoys an active tourist trade and goes to great lengths to promote itself as a modern "Garden of Eden". Much of its economy depends on either the tourist trade or the vast farmlands which cover many portions of the world's surface.
Caladbolg, with a current population of roughly 70 million, was first colonized in -321. Over the centuries, the people of Caladbolg have developed an agricultural economy and supply important agricultural resources to many worlds in the Sword Worlds Subsector.
The citizens of Caladbolg are divided into 17 independent regions known as Colonies. Although there is a degree of competition between the Colonies, they have strong economic ties with each other and friction is minimal. There has never been a major war between them.
Planetary policy is established by the Colonial Congress which meets in an ongoing session in the jointly operated Camelot City, the planet's only major population center. This body regulates any disputes between the Colonies that cannot be independently resolved. The System Defense Fleet, composed of citizens from each of the Colonies, answers directly to the Congress.
In addition to providing a meeting place for the Congress, Camelot City is home to the world's only starport. Although this facility is small, it is a sophisticated, high-tech operation.
The System Defense Fleet's primary job is to defend Caladbolg from the asteroids in the Broken Stone belt. The Broken Stone belt is an unusually diffuse belt, with asteroids regularly crossing the orbit of Caladbolg and Caliburn (a world on an orbit inward of the belt).
Headquarters of the Order of the White Star.
Caladbolg is the sword of Fergus mac Róich from the Ulster Cycle of Irish mythology. It was said to be a two-handed sword that made a circle like an arc of rainbow when swung, and to have the power to slice the tops off hills and slaughter an entire army.
