Gaia, the sole planet of the Galilei system, is a small continental world that serves as the DMZ between the Sol Central Government and the Gilgamesh Colonial Confederation. It is primarily an agricultural world, however it supports a relatively small industrial sector in the north. Gaia was decimated by the Gaia Conflict, at the end of which it was split in two; having a pro-GCC government in the north, and a pro-SCG government in the south. The population of the planet is estimated to be 1.9 billion, with roughly two-thirds of it living in the pro-GCC north.

Geography

Gaia is slightly smaller than Earth, being about one tenth smaller, and its nitrogen-oxygen atmosphere is slightly thicker. This makes Gaia marginally warmer, and more favorable to farming during all seasons. Geographically, the planet comprises a single large and mostly flat super-continent. It is speculated that Gaia's tectonic activity is comparably less intense than on other worlds, and while this has resulted in easily cultivable land, the planet has less easily accessible mineral deposits present.

History

The planet was colonized by the Galilei System Development Corporation. The GSDC was a quasi-private venture funded by various western mediterranean, founded in 2121 following the UN's success at Mars. But it is not until 2129 when the first sleeper ships are launched towards the Galillei System, just one year prior to the foundation of the Terran Commonwealth. The TC has taken over the state shares of the GSDC, effectively nationalizing it. Despite Gaia being offiicialy a territory of the Terran Commonwealth, the colony was fully self-governing. This was mainly because there was no natural stable bluespace path from Sol to Galilei.
