[3025] Chertan, along with many other worlds situated along the Marik / Steiner border, has suffered much
during the Succession Wars. The planet's surface is scarred and battered, and as such Chertan simply cannot
grow enough food to support itself. One of the planet's primary imports is farm machinery.

[3132]Though water-poor and blasted by a hot, white star, Chertan has nevertheless managed to support a
thriving industrial colony since it was founded in mankind's early exodus from Terra. Abundant mineral and
metallurgical resources made possible the founding of several settlements based around mining, refining, and
manufacturing operations, despite the lack of arable land. Thanks to the growth of nearby agricultural worlds and
a brisk trade, Chertan prospered from its export of raw materials and heavy machinery, and continued to do so
until after the fall of the original Star League. As part of the Free Worlds League's Marik Principality, perilously
close to the Steiner border, Chertan became a magnet for Lyran invasions and raids, which left the planet's
surface scarred and battered, and decimated the few farms capable of supplementing the population's needs, as
well as many industrial centers. The results of these raids and invasions created generations of starving inhabitants
as off-world trade became disrupted during wartime, and led to several food riots, including one that led to the
dismissal of the planetary viscount in 2820. By the time of the Jihad, what remained of Chertan's industrial
capacity had been smashed, with many local industries moving off-world long before the Blakist fanatics even
launched their holy war. What remained, however, was enough to attract the attention of the zealots' mercenaries,
who savaged several mining towns and even obliterated the spaceport at New Pittsburgh (near the Eerie Sea, the
northernmost of Chertan's three large bodies of water). Despite the damage, however, the planetary infrastructure
and economy recovered, mostly due to the influx of new residents relocated to this world under Devlin Stone's
Relocation Act. The planetary capital and primary spaceport of Chertan is Theleopolis, located just south of the
Huron Sea, in the planet's southern hemisphere. Altonia, the third largest city after Theleopolis and New
Pittsburgh, is located near the eastern edge of the Ontario Sea, and is home to Artista Chemicals, Chertan's
largest mineral mining and refining operation.

Chertan was originally part of the Free Worlds League until the creation of The Republic.  Chertan 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] Chertan was released from the control of The Republic.

After being released from The Republic, Chertan joined the Lyons Skye Territory.
