[3132] Kaus Media is a pleasant, terrestrial world with wide, deep oceans, expansive forests and jungles, and
varied, yet normally mild, seasons. Yet, for all its natural splendor, the first colonists to explore and exploit this
world quickly realized that the lack of easily reached indigenous metals and minerals would doom all efforts to
develop their new home.

In the search for a source for raw materials to fuel their industry, traders from Kaus Media quickly discovered
that their nearest neighbor, Kaus Australis, suffered from the opposite plight, surrounded by abundant and
valuable raw materials, but lacking in food and water. A trade deal blossomed into a full-fledged alliance that
carried the two worlds through the Age of War and continued even with the ascendance of the Draconis

Efforts by the Lyran Commonwealth to turn this alliance against the Dragon proved disastrous for the so-called
"Kaus alliance worlds" during the First Succession War, when the enraged forces of the DCMS bombarded
DeGuilles, the planetary capital city, and with it, the governing buildings that serviced both worlds. Only after
surrendering the Lyran instigators and rebel leaders, and agreeing to stiff reparations and an oath of fealty, did the
Kaus alliance avoid further destruction, but the entire crisis underscored the strengths and weaknesses of the
symbiotic relationship now shared by these twin worlds. Trade between both resumed again decades after the
crisis, though government was less centralized, with each tending to its own affairs from its own respective

Still, in memory of the broken bond, the people of Kaus Media never built over the ruins of DeGuilles. Instead,
the new planetary capital, Vanguard City, located just forty kilometers to the north on the continent of Emparos,
governs the affairs of this world, and maintains a diplomatic office for the benefit of its neighbor. Several major
trading companies that do business under exclusive license with both Kaus planets also call Vanguard City their
home, thanks to the presence of the planet's largest spaceport. Aside from Emparos, Kaus Media's other four
major continents are Romana, Hyadamos, Gaul, and Normano. All but Gaul, the planet's frozen south polar
continent, are populated with various small and medium-sized commercial and rural towns scattered along the
shores of various rivers and lakes.

[3132] Kaus Media was originally part of the Draconis Combine until the creation of The Republic. Kaus Media
became part of Prefecture I 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] Kaus Media was released from the control of The Republic.

After being released from The Republic, Kaus Media fell under the influence of the Vega territory.
