Settled during the original Exodus of the 22nd century, Dieron was one of the most highly developed worlds, both
culturally and industrially, during the Star League. It was an administrative center for the BSLA and capital of the
Draconis Combine Military Region. In this function, it was also the headquarters for the Fourteenth Army and a
major electronics center for the Regular Army. Though the planet survived the coup by Stefan Amaris intact, it
was severely damaged by General Kerensky's campaign to liberate the Hegemony. The Regular Army stripped
away the few remaining buildings before leaving the Inner Sphere.

Since the collapse of the Star League, Dieron has been the capital of the Dieron Military District in the Draconis
Combine. Legend has it that Minoru Kurita chose Dieron to be a provincial capital out of arrogance; he liked the
idea of boasting of having one of the crowing glories of the Star League so prominent a part of his own realm.

Dieron is a cramped world because of its many large mountain ranges. What space is available exists in countless
small valleys, and earthquakes are a frequent problem. With so little to recommend the planet, it is amazing that
over five billion people live here.

The standard of living on Dieron is surprisingly low for a major industrial world, because Takashi Kurita's policy
of restricting travel within the Combine prevents the Dieronese from seeing how much of their productivity is
taken from them and how little is imported in return. The cramped cities stuck between towering mountains make
the planet a hotbed of resistance to Kurita rule, perhaps, the most discontented Kurita world outside the
Rasalhague Military District.

To squash budding rebellions, the ISF plays on the Dieron people's obsession with the Star League. An ISF
agent will spread rumors of a Star League cache, causing thousands to flood into the mountains prospecting for
artifacts, thus defusing any tensions that had existed before.

[3132] Once a major administrative center, electronics producer, and site of orbital shipyards for the Star
League, Dieron survived Amaris' coup intact, only to be ravaged by returning SLDF troops in the war to liberate
the Hegemony. The Castles Brian in the planet's numerous mountain ranges were obliterated by who clung to that
memory of their world's former glory.

Their cities, cramped in the valleys formed by the steep, crisscrossing mountain ranges, often became hotbeds for
resistance against the Combine's rule after House Kurita seized the planet following the fall of the League. The
Combine leadership often used rumors of a Star League cache found in the mountains to keep the locals
distracted, sending many of the population into the treacherous highlands, braving the elements and chronic
earthquakes, in the hope of uncovering a relic of their past.

When the Blakist Jihad was launched, Dieron, as a Combine district capital, was targeted by a massive attack
that included nuclear weapons and orbital bombardment. The major industrial city of Aldinga, nestled at the heart
of the northern Mataeo continent, ceased to exist when shelling from a Word of Blake WarShip actually struck a
nearby fault line that literally caved in the entire valley. The smaller southern continent of Voltenna remains a
scarred, radiation-scorched wasteland today, dotted with the ruins of several cities and towns. Only the north
polar continent of Wennisaka was spared any damage from the Jihad onslaught, despite the presence of Fort
Shiro, a former Combine military headquarters and site of a major spaceport.

The planetary capital city, Tahlwynn, is located on Mataeo, in the Loretta-Argus mountain basin, and also serves
as the planet's primary spaceport.

[3132] Dieron was originally part of the Federated Suns until the creation of The Republic. Dieron became part
of Prefecture X 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] Dieron was released from the control of The Republic.

After being released from The Republic, Dieron created its own territory, claiming worlds within its reach.
