[3132] A cloudy atmosphere, laced with too much sulfur and carbon dioxide to breathe safely, covers Laiaka in a
hazy gray shroud. Though this atmosphere all but blocks out the light from its dull red star, this atmosphere traps
enough solar radiation to produce higher than expected surface temperatures. Initial colonization efforts
overlooked Laiaka for this reason, but during the ascent of the Federation of Skye, an expedition to this world
discovered impressive deposits of industrial materials, including titanium and germanium, beneath the steamy
surface. Mining settlements soon arose, particularly on the northern island continent of Geir. Rather than erect
expensive domes, the settlers built their cities underground, making use of their expanding mining tunnels and
natural subterranean caverns, some even large enough to accommodate 'Mech traffic, formed by geologic
outgassing. Early terraforming efforts were underway by the dawn of the Star League era, with vast expanses of
genetically tailored algae employed across the global seas to convert some of the excess carbon dioxide to
oxygen. The effort was only partially complete, however, when the Succession Wars began. As a wealthy border
world, Laiaka suffered from numerous raids throughout the Succession Wars. Though determined defenders and
Laiaka's own unpredictable subterranean labyrinths often thwarted these invasions, the centuries of raiding set
back terraforming efforts. Laiaka's atmosphere returned quickly to its natural state, a steamy near-toxic hell
preferred only by the native flora. The planetary capital, Bunker City, is located on Geir's central plains, on the
shores of the Great Geir River, and features Laiaka's few surface structures, including the gantries of the Bunker
City Spaceport. The southern continent of Preiska, however, boasts its own local capital and spaceport city,

Laiaka was originally part of the Lyran Alliance until the creation of The Republic.  Laiaka 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] Laiaka was released from the control of The Republic.

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