A generally bleak and forbidding arctic world, Halloran V is a relatively young planet that is still active
geologically. It is almost 20 percent solid copper, and its copper exports provided a mainstay for Tikonov
finances until Davion occupied the world. Halloran's only other major industry is water exportation; at the rate the
Hallorans are selling icebergs to water-poor worlds, they are likely to run out of water a century or more sooner
than copper, which could precipitate a major ecological crisis. Most of the inhabitants take a depressingly cavalier
attitude, however, reasoning that their descendants can always find another mining world later on.

Vanders is Halloran's largest city.

[3132] A generally bleak, barren, and forbidding arctic world, Halloran V is a relatively young planet that is
geologically active. Halloran V is in an ice age, with glacial sheets that cover 35 percent of both hemispheres.
Exportation of ice is one of Halloran V's two major industries . Halloran was selling icebergs at such a prodigious
rate that many felt the planet would be without them in a century, which could have precipitated a major
ecological crisis. Planetary officials finally listened to the advice and slowed the export rate.

Halloran V has three continents and two archipelagoes. Chimera, the largest continent, is located in the equatorial
zone, which is the most temperate of the landmasses. The largest city, Vanders, and the capital, Gethin, are
located on Chimera in the large Shobol River valley. Seventy percent of the population lives on Chimera.
Newfoundland and Sunderland are in the northern and southern hemispheres, respectively. Both are mostly
barren, frozen lands that produce the bulk of the planet’s copper, the world's other major export. Tonka Li
and Tonka Lu are large archipelagoes that have been left mostly undeveloped because of numerous active

When the Jihad finally came to Halloran V, it was not Blakist forces that landed, but Capellan. After nearly 60
years, the Chancellor decided to take advantage of the fluid situation and sent in one of his veteran Sixth Reserve
Cavalry Brigades. Several weeks later, the Federated Suns Armored Cavalry entered the Halloran system to
push the Capellans off the planet. They landed on Chimera and used their famous speed and cavalry tactics to
force the Capellans to fight the Cavalry's war. In a twist of fate, a Blakist WarShip entered the system, destroyed
all the JumpShips of both forces, and bombarded Chimera, leveling the major cities and all but destroying both
forces on the planet before departing.

Halloran V was originally part of the Federated Suns until the creation of The Republic. Halloran V became part
of Prefecture V 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] Halloran V was released from the control of The Republic.

After being released from The Republic, Halloran V was forcefully taken by Capellan Confederation.

*[3140] March 15, The Federated Suns have moved several forces into orbit above Halloran V.  DropShips
have landed on the surface and the retaking of the planet has begun.
