+[May 21, 3134] News reaches Liao that Palos, Shipka, Wei and Foot Fall were hit by Capellan forces.

Colonized early in the 23rd century, Palos would soon be a major source of important ores and minerals. Palos is
a large world, measuring nearly 15,000 kilometers at the equator. Yet its three continents, Cartagena, Murcia,
and Valencia, cover just over 40 percent of the planet. The largest of the three is Valencia, where the capital of
Xer is located on the northeastern coast, on the Iberian Peninsula. Valencia is covered with vast woodlands and
mountains, offering the inhabitants the necessary resources to live and prosper. Two hundred kilometers south of
Xer is the barren Docarshon Valley. It was here that early colonists discovered rich gold deposits that played out
after three centuries of mining. Now it’s just an ugly scar of uncontrolled exploitation. Cartagena is the smallest of
the three continents, yet it supplies most of the planet’s food supplies, including indigenous mammals
domesticated for food as an alternative to beef products. Murcia is mostly mountains and valleys covered in
sparse vegetation and timber. Its arid landscape is the backdrop of the planet’s massive mining operations.
Careful land management has allowed Murcia to continue to produce a steady supply of ore and minerals.

Palos has always been a planet of independent-minded people. They believe in individual freedom and are always
opposed to heavy taxes. In early 2305, Palos and Wei both rebelled against the Sarna Supremacy after years of
heavy-handed taxation and economic exploitation. They declared their independence. Their move caused the
Capellan-Supremacy War when the Capella Hegemony intervened to help both worlds.

During the Fourth Succession War, Davion forces landed and were immediately met by the planet’s inhabitants,
who showed no fear in protesting their presence on the planet. After the planet fell, the people quietly chafed
under Davion rule. When the war of 3057 came, shattering the Sarna March, Palos happily returned to the
Confederation.

The people of Palos nearly revolted when Devlin Stone demanded the planet be included in The Republic.

[3132] Palos was originally part of the Capellan Confederation until the creation of The Republic. Palos was
forced to become 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] Palos was released from the control of The Republic and retaken by House Liao.
