[3132] Brutally hot and muggy much of the time, Konstance suffers from an overabundance of carbon dioxide
that casts a haze over the planet and traps heat from its weak, K-class sun. Once necessary to give life on this
world a fighting chance, this environmental taint, already present to a much lesser degree when colonists first set
foot here almost a thousand years ago, has been aggravated by centuries of human development. Despite efforts
to control the greenhouse-effect problem in its infancy, the presence of large underground pockets of
petrochemicals and natural gas inevitably led to a series of drilling and refining industries that helped develop
Konstance, but over time added to the atmospheric pollution. Konstance thus continued to grow hotter over the
centuries, to the point where the effects of this global warming have forced the local population to move into the
cooler polar reaches of the planet.

Unfortunately, despite the decreased presence of heavy industry in the middle and equatorial latitudes, save a few
automated pumping and refining facilities occasionally tended to by visiting laborers and technicians in special
environmental gear, the planet continues to grow warmer with each passing year. The abandoned cities and towns
of the planet's interior landmasses of Juranias and Tiburia, including the former capital city of Konstantinople,
have gradually been reclaimed by Mother Nature, with hardy but mutated rain forest trees, fed by acid rains,
growing through the crumbling remains of streets and buildings. Tropical storms, also the result of the planet's
shifting climate, have rendered travel into and through these regions a chancy proposition, so most
transcontinental travel is accomplished either through suborbital DropShip hops or by the use of submersible
passenger vehicles. While this complicates administrative and commercial business on Konstance somewhat,
especially in the formation of distinctive "northern" and "southern" subcultures, it has made raids against this world
over the last century or two an equally complex affair as hostile parties must often try to coordinate a two-
pronged assault to tie up local defenses, which have long since grown accustomed to the quirks of Konstanceâ
€™s heat and tempestuous weather.

The capital city of Konstance, Ishtalia, is located on the southern polar continent of Perragea, and also doubles as
the southern hemisphere's largest spaceport city. Its counterpart on the north polar continent of Epigaus, Lazarus
Bay, also boasts the planet's largest submarine seaport, which ferries over half the harsh-environment workforce
for local fuel producers like Axis PetroChem Unlimited.

[3132] Konstance was originally part of the Draconis Combine until the creation of The Republic. Konstance
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] Konstance was released from the control of The Republic.

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