History and background[edit]

Laraa was initially colonized during the First Imperium. As its population grew it became became a trade center and communications hub, and then the regional capital. After the Interstellar Wars the population was decimated by the Plague of Duskir. The world's population continued to decline throughout the Rule of Man, and by the end of the Twilight period Laraa was totally depopulated. There are extensive (and largely unexplored) First Imperium ruins on the surface. Records from the First Imperium indicate this world was inhabited with Chirpers.

The company DagMet AG is based in Laraa (Dagudashaag 2534) and serves the fabrication industry (especially in starship construction) in and around the Dagudashaag Sector.

Over the past twenty years the LifeTech Corporation has been upgrading the facilities in the system. The class A orbital port entered service during 1108, and a surface facility capable of housing over a million colonists is close to completion. The corporation (in conjunction with the scout service) is using aliens as part of a colonization experiment.
