History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The planet had enormous natural mineral reserves, and during the 600s Louzy saw a huge boom in ore mining and processing that drew the attention of several megacorps, including Sternmetal Horizons.

During the 700s Louzy saw the end of the easily-accessible deposits and experienced a global economic depression that took centuries to shake off.

In 1115 the Louzy economy is strictly-regulated by the world government but stable. A modest mid-tech industrial base exports raw materials and an increasing amount of finished goods through the formerly extensive starport.

Louzy's government broke apart in 1148 after a dispute over mining claims led to a brief flare up of "tribal warfare" between the militias of two separate settlements. The world government's response to the crisis was slow and inept, and several other communities joined the two contending factions. A three way division currently prevails, though one of these factions is showing signs of further devolution.
