[3132] Kuzuu is a quiet, mostly agricultural world known for long, reasonably mild seasons, particularly in its
middle-latitude continents of Oahana and Entiko. A large world, with modest deposits of industrial metals and
other valuable resources, Kuzuu developed heavy industry very slowly compared to most of its neighbors, as a
majority of the original settlers preferred the quieter farming and ranching life to the hustle of heavy industry and
commerce. Because of this, the planet was largely overlooked by raiders throughout the Age of War and the first
three Succession Wars, a factor that helped protect its natural beauty and even drew those seeking a return to the
simpler life. In the Fourth Succession War, Kuzuu went from being an interior world of the Draconis Combine to
being the front line against future FedCom aggression, perched just beyond the tip of the united Commonwealth's
new "Lyons Thumb". The increased military presence this new position warranted led to a boom in local industry
and the economy to support the planet's defense, and so, by the close of the thirty-first century, Kuzuu boasted a
population of more than two billion, almost equally divided among urban and rural population centers.

When the Word of Blake launched its Jihad against the Inner Sphere, Kuzuu became a staging area for allied
forces working to liberate nearby planets. Overlooked by the zealots, except for the sabotage of its local HPG,
Kuzuu did not suffer the wrath of nuclear or biochemical weapons during those dark times. After the Jihad, this
world was ceded to The Republic along with several other Combine planets, a transition that promised to go
smoothly until Devlin Stone announced his relocation directives, aimed at creating a more diverse cultural basis for
his new state. Many Kuzuu natives, mortified at the thought of leaving what they still considered their own sleepy
little planet, or having all manner of "undesirables" thrust upon them, took to the streets in open demonstrations,
some of which degenerated into riots.

Rather than use force to quell such discord, however, Stone offered to debate the matter in public with the
strongest advocates against the relocation directives, and to allow the people of Kuzuu to decide what would
become of their world. Several months of political campaigning for both sides of the issue preceded the debate,
culminating in the debate itself in the capital city of Arbeesi, on the industrialized northern continent of Shanaro.
Speaking personally at the city's packed indoor hockey stadium on behalf of his program, Stone won the debate
over his challenger, Steve Yzerman, by a margin of 23 percent according to on-the-spot polls.

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

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