stood proud of its history, culture, industry, and science. Everything that had been desirable about living on
Ozawa made it a target for nuclear weapons from both the Draconis Combine and the Capellan Confederation.
It was settled in the first wave from Terra, mostly by Japanese colonists. Though they had some trouble adjusting
to the planet's extreme weather and extraordinary tides, they discovered important mineral deposits that made it
worth their while to battle the harsh conditions. The planet soon became the center for technology relating not
only to terraforming, but also protecting the planet's natural beauty. The colonists, who by this time had become
numerous, were careful to preserve the clean environment.
The world became an industrial, scientific, and economic gem. First came the electronics industry. This
technology base drew other companies' attention. The giant Ulsop robotics conglomerate located an experimental
facility on Ozawa. It was there that the scientists did much of the research and development that led to the Space
Defense Systems. Ozawa also was the headquarters for Diplan 'Mechyards, a major producer of BattleMechs.
After the industry and science came the financial institutions. The Star League built the city of Prosperity, a
financial hub that featured a regional stock exchange and the mint for the currency used in the Federated Suns.
The fall of the Star League ended Ozawa's Golden Age. Because of its importance, this world was seized by the
Federated Suns but was attacked repeatedly during the First Succession War by Houses Kurita and Liao. These
were compounded by a wave of antiAsian paranoia that spread through Ozawa's non-Japanese population.
Violence now characterized a place whose name had become synonymous with a reverence for life. The end
came when the Kuritans did not hesitate to make extensive use of nuclear devices during a major push to capture
the planet. The city of Prosperity was obliterated. Now the landscape of Ozawa is like that of a tortured, twisted
What few inhabitants remain stay well clear of the Hot Zones, where radiation levels are still lethal. Of Ozawa's
five major landmasses, Sendai, Niigata, Todoga, Muroran, and Kushiro, only Todoga and Kushiro support major
population and industrial centers. Kushiro is home to the planetary capital of Sapporo, located in the area known
as Lake Washington, and Todoga is home to Wunderland Industries, producer of electronics and
communications systems for civilian and military aerospace craft.
Despite the devastation, Ozawa is important today. Though its beauty is gone and its reduced population now
lives in domed cities, the planet is the capital of its administrative area in the Federated Suns bureaucracy. It is
also the headquarters of the Intelligence-Gathering Services division of the Ministry of Intelligence, Investigations,
 After the discovery of a large deposit of important industrial metals, this world became a major
manufacturing center during the Star League era. However, its people took great care to preserve the distinctive
natural beauty of their world, focusing a great deal of their scientific efforts into planetary reclamation and
After the collapse of the Star League, destructive attacks by both the Draconis Combine and the Capellan
Confederation—including a nuclear assault by departing Combine troops during the early Succession Wars—
have left the once-beautiful landscape of Ozawa like that of a tortured, twisted corpse. What few inhabitants
remain stay well clear of the Hot Zones, where radiation levels are still lethal.
Of Ozawa’s five major landmasses, Sendai, Niigata, Todoga, Muroran, and Kushiro, only Todoga and Kushiro
support major population and industrial centers. Kushiro is home to the planetary capital of Sapporo, located in
the area formerly known as Lake Washington (during they days of Federated Suns dominion), and Todoga is
home to Wunderland Industries, producer of electronics and communications systems for civilian and military
aerospace craft. Curiously, this least-populated world in the Prefecture has been designated the regional capital,
and the administrative capitol building for the Prefecture is located in the city of Sukade on the Todoga continent.
 Ozawa was originally part of the Federated Suns until the creation of The Republic. Ozawa became part
of Prefecture III 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.
 Ozawa was released from the control of The Republic.
After being released from The Republic, Ozawa fell under the influence of the Dieron territory.
