[3067] Founded by Antonin Marik in 2139 under the auspices of the Terran Alliance, the world of Marik quickly
became an industrial and financial powerhouse, its strength coming from substantial and diverse mineral deposits
that fuelled the eventual expansion of the Marik Commonwealth. Despite its arid climate, the population has
boomed, the inhabitants residing in cities designed to weather the storms and tectonic incidents typical of this
planet. The Captain-General’s Winter Palace at Dormuth on the northern continent of Mondaria, the Marik
family’s ancestral seat, is stark and functional, as much a fortress as a royal residence. The LCCC headquarters,
situated at Malket some 500 kilometers south of the capital, are designed to resist any conventional military
assault. The bulk of the facility lies underground and is well able to survive even orbital bombardment and nuclear
attack (though it has yet to face such a test).

The mining industry that once dominated Marik, in particular the southern Chavalet continent and the western
regions of Mondaria, has declined markedly over the last century and redevelopment is transforming the scars
that dot the planet. Many open-cast excavations have been flooded and transformed into water sports venues,
while others remain in use as tourist attractions, “mining camp” holidays having long been a popular vacation. The
orange-red precious firestones excavated in such holiday centers are a big draw and continue to be mined
commercially, along with precious metals used in numerous industries planetwide. Manufacturing—civilian and
military—plays a major role in Marik’s economy, though over the last half-century service industries have
overtaken them as the principal on-world employers. Despite the limits of the local climate, agriculture and
aquaculture (principally in the shallow Azman Sea between Mondaria and Chavalet) remain key industries as
well, employing roughly five percent of the population. Lacking the conspicuous consumption of the League
capital, and with a practical culture that stresses self-reliance, Marik is almost entirely self-sufficient.

[3132] Marik was originally part of the Free Worlds League until the creation of The Republic.  Marik never
became part 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] Marik witnessed the release of many planets from the control of The Republic.

[3135] Marik remains the seat of the Free Worlds League, House Marik.
