Ruchbah's surface is dominated by a single landmass and dotted with inland seas. Most of this landmass consists
of rolling grasslands, hills, and tundra, ideal for grazing animals. Lit by a small subdwarf star, Ruchbah is a
relatively cool world and its higher latitudes suffer bitterly cold winters, forcing both domesticated and wild herds
to migrate annually. Because so much of its population follows the animal herds, the population of Ruchbah's
capital, Rook, and other towns varies widely depending on the season.
When first settled, Ruchbah's native military consisted of little more than horse-mounted cavalry, which allowed
the neighboring Tikonov Union to take control of Ruchbah in 2228. When the Tikonov Union joined the Capellan
Confederation 150 years later, Ruchbah was one of several worlds that requested the protection of, and was
eventually integrated into, the Terran Hegemony. After the fall of the First Star League, the Federated Suns
claimed Ruchbah. Although the Capellan Confederation briefly held Ruchbah during the Third Succession War,
Ruchbah remained a backwater world supplying animal products to the rest of the Federated Suns for most of
the Succession Wars. During and after the Clan invasion, investment in military production by the Great Houses
reached a high not seen since the First Star League.
 Ruchbah was originally part of the Federated Suns until the creation of The Republic. Ruchbah became
part of Prefecture IV 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.
 Ruchbah was released from the control of The Republic.
After being released from The Republic, Ruchbah fell under the influence of the Tikonov territory.
