It contains two habitable worlds; the main one (Veles III) is home to a large population of humans from various factions. The planet itself is Earth-sized and features one, giant ocean and a huge landmass surrounding it from pole to pole. The inland area of Veles III is mostly inhospitable; a hot, arid desert. The coastal areas are more capable of sustaining life and feature various towns, cities and other settlements.
Veles III was a frequent stopover for colonists travelling to the Rim during the first spread of humanity. Most of the American civilians heading on their ill-fated final trip to Freya stopped off at Veles first and the planet features a sombre monument to their memories.
Otherwise, the world is host to a number of young megacorporations; SDI has its corporate HQ on the planet and conducts most of its business from Veles as opposed to the very expensive Core Worlds.
