Formed when whole sections of the planets crust had been thrust upward, the Hellfire mountains are aptly named.
Volcanoes leave Reddish-brown frozen lava flows and half-melted purple hillsides in their wake, and hot springs
create muddy pools which bubble like cauldrons of thick, brown soup, whilst pale yellow vapors twist from
sulphurous geysers.

[3132]Hunan has been described as the last place in the Inner Sphere you would want to go, let alone live. The
planet's atmosphere is tainted by tons of sulfur vapor produced by hundreds of volcanoes located on the main
continent in the equatorial zone of the planet. "Hell" as it has been named, is completely devoid of life. The
population of the planet lives in Kamala, the only continent that can support life. And that's not saying much. Even
here the landscape is a frozen lava flow, reddish-brown in color, with half-melted purple hillsides. Pale yellow
vapors twist from sulfurous, steam-belching geysers, rising through the thick brown soup. Outside the capital of
Hunan City are the Hellfire Mountains, which are made up of volcanoes and hot springs that make the use of
infrared scans nearly impossible. The sulfur vapors hamper radar and magscans, making most sensors useless.

The planet was colonized only for the massive deposits of ore and metals found on all five of the planet's
continents. Roc, Zeka, and Bandar are island continents. It was here that the planet's native life was found. "Fire
lizards", as they were called, could spit a caustic liquid with deadly accuracy up to 10 meters, causing intense
burns. Eventually the lizard population was brought under control and a few domed cities were built so that
humans could mine the land.

Hunan is one of the few worlds in the first few waves of human expansion that did not see any military action until
near the end of the Jihad. A retreating Blakist unit routed at the Battle of Sian grounded on Roc. With no
knowledge of the planet, they were unprepared for its natural defenses. After a week, the Blakists captured one
of the domed cities. A few days later, the Hunanites destroyed the dome, killing nearly all the invaders. The fire
lizards took care of the rest.

*[3136]April 15, The Capellan Confederation declares Hunan part of its Territory.  Due to the planet's nature the
Capellan's take only a mild interest in the planet and choose to send an emissary to request acknowledgement
that the planet is now under the control of the Capellans. With little concern over who actually controls the planet
the planetary legate and governmental council agrees with the caveat that the planetary government remains in
control of the laws and populace. The Capellans agree as long as products from the planet are given over in
exchange for money.  The planet agrees and joins the Capellan Confederation. **

Hunan was originally part of the Capellan Confederation until the creation of The Republic.  Hunan 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] Hunan was released from the control of The Republic.

After being released from The Republic, Hunan joined the Capellan Confederation.
