 Once a beautiful, temperate trading world for the Draconis Combine and Free Worlds League, and Asta
was mutilated by the guns of Blakist WarShips during the Jihad. Lacking much in the way of heavy industry, Asta
had been primarily an agricultural world, with prime exports limited to foodstuffs, textiles, and civilian commercial
vehicles. During the Jihad, however, the planet's position, just a single jump from Terra, and the presence of a
small Combine unit, mandated that it be attacked by the Word of Blake in destroyed the planetary capital of
Excaliba, and the Blakists placed a number of their "reeducation camps" on the planet along with their occupation
forces. The fight to eject the fanatics devastated more of the planetary surface and economy, but Devlin Stone's
efforts to revitalize Asta have gradually begun to bear fruit.
Today, Asta is once more a trading world, with vessels regularly entering and departing the new capital and port
city of Logan, on the northwestern super-continent, Balerdo. Charbyllis, the largest population center on the
smaller southern continent of Moolai, still remains home to the majority of Asta's textile industries, with farmlands
dominating the open plains north and east of the city proper. The Desert Ice Fields of Balerdo Grande, still a
popular tourist site on Asta, now also include the planet's memorial to those killed in the Jihad, a solemn reminder
of the dark days before The Republic.
 Asta was originally part of the Draconis Combine until the creation of The Republic. Asta 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.
 Asta remained part of The Republic and is now under its protection, inside the Fortress Republic.
