[3132] Denebola V, known to its inhabitants as either Everwood or Lyracropis, is a cool world with untouched
woodlands covering almost eighty percent of its equatorial and tropical zones. The three giant landmasses
population, which established its cities along the winding rivers that cut through the forested lands. The northern
and southern regions, by comparison, are virtually devoid of life, as polar caps extend well into the temperate
zones, retreating ever so slowly at what experts believe is the receding edge of a planetary ice age. When this
world was first settled, Denebola's ice caps reached as far as the northern tropical latitudes, and the early
colonists considered various means of terra-forming the world to open more land up for farming. Time and
economics, however, were not conducive to such a venture, as the faltering Terran Alliance attempted to assert
its authority over the independent-minded settlers. Denebola V was the first of the early Terran colonies to
declare its independence from the Alliance, and successfully repelled that ill-fated government's efforts to bring its
population in line. This independence would be short-lived, however. Virtually isolated after securing their
freedom, the inhabitants of Denebola soon found themselves forced to rely on loose trading alliances with various
local systems for badly needed equipment to survive on their cold world, an ironic result of Terra's sudden shift
toward isolationism. Disease and poorly executed agricultural programs added to the planet's woes, and several
early settlements died out completely, resulting in a fractured population as local communications broke down.
Two separate colonial groups survived, one on the frosty northern reaches of Zadipos, the eastern continent, and
the other on the hilly, river-crossed land of Neurasia in the central equatorial zones. Both colonial settlements
presumed the others were lost as central government collapsed on Denebola, until years later, when the
ascendance of the Terran Hegemony brought Denebola back into touch with the rest of the galactic community.
The arrival of the Hegemony, and the Star League after that, saved the Denebolans from the brink of oblivion, but
those who remained were some of the hardiest and most stubborn of the planet's population, adapted to years of
living and forging a living in relative isolation. The trouble came when the Hegemony attempted to help the locals
establish a central authority for the planet, as the Zadipos and Neurasian peoples each claimed the right to
self-rule. A series of compromises averted what looked like the onset of a brushfire war on Denebola, as the
Hegemony brokered the formation of a confederation-style government. Allowing each of the two populations to
see to its own affairs, while representatives from each made planetary-level decisions using an as-needed
planetary council forum. This loose confederation and dual-government state evolved into a more homogeneous
combination and centralized government after the fall of the Star League, as Denebola, lying right on the border of
the Lyran Commonwealth and the Free Worlds League, changed ownership a number of times through the
centuries. The resulting influx of off-world immigrants with each change of hands, mixed with the planet's past as a
dual-society world, has resulted in a cosmopolitan melting pot that made Denebola an ideal choice for a
Prefecture capital when it became part of The Republic of the Sphere. Today, Denebola still maintains capital
cities for each of its continents. Zadipos' capital, Fallen Star, is nestled on the western cost and is home to a
thriving fishing community and regional defense post, while New Bonn covers the entire northern edge of the large
inland Lake Diamond on Neurasia, and maintains several prime logging and farming industries. The official
planetary capital, St. Cameron, is located on the eastern Rhyde Peninsula of Slovakia, and is home not only to
Denebola's largest spaceport, but also the Prefecture capital building and headquarters of the planetary militia.

became part of Prefecture VIII 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] Denebola V remained part of The Republic and is now under its protection, inside the Fortress Republic.
