[3132] Kimball II is the more heavily populated of two inhabited worlds in the Kimball system. Both the system
and the worlds take their name from Lorenzo Kimball, a wealthy twenty-first-century industrial magnate from
Terra’s North American continent, whose family settled the system for the abundance of rich metallic resources
on the planets and in the local asteroid belt. Though the Kimballs largely resided on Terra, members of that
distinguished family financed and led the expeditions to establish colonies on Kimball II and IV. Kimball II, by far
the more hospitable world—if a bit warm—boasted ample water and agricultural resources on two of its four
main continents, compared to water-poor Kimball IV’s murky atmosphere of nitrogen and carbon dioxide. Thus,
on the rocky desert landmasses of Vanassay and Warsaw—both of which straddle the equator—made them an
ideal haven for mining and refining operations. Meanwhile, the fertile northern and southern continents—Hestelle
and Triasha, respectively—became the basis for sufficient farming and ranching to sustain the population of both
worlds. Kimball II’s exports, which mostly consisted of various industrial- and military-grade metals and metal
parts for heavy agricultural, industrial, and military machinery, complemented the bauxite mining exports of
Kimball IV, quickly establishing the Kimball family’s dominance of the industrial metal trade in the region. This
prosperity carried the Kimballs into their alliance with the Igota family of Thorin, an alliance that ultimately
spawned the star-spanning corporate empire known today as Ceres Metals.

After the fall of the Star League, of course, the wealth of the Kimball system led to a series of battles for this
world. By 2932, Kimball II had changed hands over a dozen times between the Lyran Commonwealth and the
Draconis Combine. Fighting for the less hospitable world of Kimball IV was only slightly less intense, even though
the planet’s meager population and a defense force consisting of specialized helicopters presented minimal
challenge to any invaders. The fighting ravaged much of the planet’s industry, but thankfully spared most of the
civilian population centers because of the distance between most of these communities and the planet’s major
industrial centers. Fighting over Kimball II continued all the way up to the Jihad, with the last administrators of the
planet, the Draconis Combine, battling mercenaries employed by the Word of Blake for control of the planet
during that war.

The Combine agreed to cede Kimball II to Devlin Stone’s Republic of the Sphere only after first securing favored
trading rights over the planet’s output, an issue that raised the ire of the Lyran Alliance, which claimed that its
prior dominion of the world through much of its history made it a Lyran territory. A compromise was eventually
reached that granted both Successor States access to this industrial planet’s exports, and allowed The Republic
to plant its flag in the capital and spaceport city of Lorenzopolis, on the southern continent, Triasha. Lorenzopolis
is also home to a branch office of the still-active Ceres Metals corporation.

[3132] Kimball II was originally part of the Draconis Combine until the creation of The Republic.  Kimball II
became part of Prefecture IX under the control of The Republic.  After the fall of the HPG Network Fortress
Republic was created and many of the worlds under its control were set free.
[3135] Kimball II was released from the control of The Republic.

After being released from The Republic, Kimball II fell under the control of Clan Jade Falcon.
