Zebebelgenubi is a planet with meagre water resources and dominated by a mountainous landscape. Flat
lands are confined to the coastal areas, where 90% of the planet's people live. A few hardy people live in the
mountains, prospecting for rare jewels and certain woods sought after by artists.
The planet was once a center of the electronics industry in the Star League. Ulsop Robotics had its headquarters
in Gray Valley City, the capital of Zebebelgenubi. Ulsop was a major developer in the SDS projects. After the
coup, Republican soldiers forced the scientists of the company to train them to operate SDS systems. For a year,
the scientists trained the Amaris soldiers. Several scientists tried to sabotage classes by setting fire to the
classrooms. This enraged the local Republican commander, who executed all the scientists. By that time, enough
soldiers had been trained for the Republicans to operate the SDS installations.
Many of the planet's heavy industries were absorbed by the Lyran Commonwealth after the collapse of the Star
League. The planet maintained a high level of technology for a long time, but the Draconis Combine took a
special interest in Zebebelgenubi during the Third Succession War. As a result, most of its Star League
technology was lost. Archaeologists have recently uncovered several hidden military caches in the planet's rough
 Though it orbits farther out than any other body in its system, Zebebelgenubi is a warm planet dominated
by mountains that often completely surround several orphaned seas and lakes. The interior lands of all five major
continents are mostly rugged wastes of rock, broken only by the occasional river that has stubbornly cut its way
through over eons of history. Many of these mountain ranges are covered by petrified woodlands, fossilized
remains of a long-lost era when water flowed more freely across the planet’s surface. Only in the coastal areas is
there sufficient flatland on which to build, and it is in these regions that the bulk of the planetary population has
lived since the planet was first settled in the twenty-third century. But, despite its rugged frontier appearance,
Zebebelgenubi soon became home to a booming electronics and robotics industry, thanks to the discovery of
precious gems and industrial-grade silicon in the mountains. These industries only grew more lucrative when
Zebebelgenubi became part of the Terran Hegemony and Ulsop Robotics, headquartered in the planetary capital
of Gray Valley City, became the prime developer for artificially intelligent space defense system networks.
Ulsop’s SDS networks became the Star League standard, protecting every valuable system in the Hegemony
with a combination of fast, artificially intelligent drones, orbital defense satellites, and even surface-to-orbit
weapon batteries. Unfortunately, this crowning achievement of Zebebelgenubian engineering also led to the world’
s downfall when Stefan Amaris, the Usurper, staged his coup and his troops swept down all over the Hegemony.
After forcing the scientists to teach them the secrets of the SDS networks, Amaris’s troops executed all of them
and attempted to destroy all of Ulsop’s facilities, ravaging many of the planet’s major cities in the process.
Centuries of Succession Wars did the rest, demolishing the remnants of Zebebelgenubi’s once-mighty industrial
and technological base. Though rumors persisted of caches of lostech left behind in hidden mountain facilities,
none materialized that could save the planet from a long, slow decline. Fortunately, this decline spared the planet
from the horrors of the Jihad, though scattered legends tell of Blakist raiding forces visiting the almost unreachable
mountains in the planet’s interior reaches during the darkest years of the war.
Upon becoming a part of The Republic, Zebebelgenubi received a sudden influx of new blood in the form of
transplanted citizens from other Republic worlds. In the bargain, this world also gained the attention of ambitious
executives from the Federated Suns–based Joint Equipment Systems. Ten years after joining The Republic, JES
founded a satellite production facility just outside the sprawling suburbs of old Gray Valley City on Gastagne, the
largest of the planet’s three northern hemisphere continents. The facility, which produces state-of-the-art industrial
and military support vehicles—including the JES missile transport line—both for The Republic and in limited trade
with the Lyran, FedSuns, and Combine governments, has provided Zebebelgenubi with a long-overdue
Today, Gray Valley City remains the largest and most industrialized of Zebebelgenubi’s cities, but it is the city of
Nantucket, on the nearby Wurscht continent, that boasts the planet’s largest spaceport—half a kilometer longer
than Gray Valley’s, to accommodate more aerodyne DropShip traffic. All three of Zebebelgenubi’s other
continents—Hershaim in the north, Valius and Zeibleria in the south—are sparsely populated, with the majority of
towns and smaller settlements located on the shorelines.
 Zebebelgenubi was originally part of the Draconis Combine until the creation of The Republic.
Zebebelgenubi 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.
 Zebebelgenubi was released from the control of The Republic.
After being released from The Republic, Zebebelgenubi fell under the control of Clan Jade Falcon.
