The topography of Corabie consists mostly of flat deserts broken by ranges of rocky hills and low mountains. Vegetation is sparse, small hardy shrubs and ground cover for the most part. Most of the planets water is in underground rivers and aquifers. A handful of oasis across the planet mark the few places where it reaches the surface. Because of the lack of surface water there is almost no native wildlife.
Corabie has a population of 2 Billion, the majority of which are concentrated into three cities which were present before its Compliance less than a decade ago.
The greatest of these is Castus Landing (previously designation erased from records) which has the largest spaceport on the planet, and thus the greatest wealth from interstellar trade. It is home to around 400 million people as well as all of the travelers and merchants passing through. In addition it is the seat of the Planetary Governor and, by default, the self proclaimed Sub-Sector Governor.
The second most influential city is Oraldis, the planets former capital, being built up around the planets only natural resource, a massive gold mine. About a Billion souls make their home there and while Castus Landing is a thriving, modern city with vibrant growth, Oraldis is an established regal city of old money. The mine has been the boon of the city but rumours have started spreading that its veins may be running dry, while denying such thing the brokers of Oraldis have recently began shifting their focus into large scale underground agri production using the thousands of mining shafts and tunnels riddled through the mountainous city.
The third largest population centre on Corabie is Tertius; its primary purpose is to maintain the geothermal plant that supply the other two cities with power. Although it is much less prestigious than the other two, it is also a growing industrial hub with vast infrastructure development underway to significantly increase its power generation capaiblities for the newly formed capital as well proposed manufacturum arrays.
The remainder of the population live in small settlements and private estates dotted all over the planet. A small number of nomads live in the wastes, far away from civilization.
Corabie is the first colony founded by Castus Tharr, a well connected Rogue Trader leading the Expeditionary Fleet whose exploration came upon the Nemesis Spiral. The City of Castus Landing was intended to serves as his primary base of operation in the Compliance of the Sub-Sector (the expansion of his personal holdings). Already an established trade hub for the various Xenos empires in the area as well as a few isolated human settlements, the arrival of the Imperium changed little except the toppling of the previous government and the injection of new resources which accompanied the Expeditionary Fleet.
With the Warp Storms isolating the entire Sub-Sector and severing communication Tharr has remained in tactical command of the Expeditionary forces and their targets, effectively allowing him to carve out his own Empire. How long this will last, though, with civil war on one side of the Warp lane and hostile Xenos on the other, is yet to be seen. Should communication of the Heresy filter through the Storms to the Legions working with him, the resulting war could be devastating for his fledgling empire.
STC Fragment unearthed
A number of sources are claiming that an STC Fragment has been unearthed deep in the South Eastern sands of the Dilari Wastes in one of the dormant mining tunnels. While currently an active warzone the value of such a find is sure to attract scavengers and archeotech hunters from afar, eager to retrieve the item and sell it to the highest bidder. Governor Tharr has reminded all citizens that all such technology is the property of the Imperium and looters will be executed without evidence or trial.
Sand Hydra nest disturbed by interlopers
Water Caravans have brought in stories of massive Sand Hydra activity in the South Western dunes of the Dilari Wastes at the base of the Obsidian Mountain. The proximity to the Dilari Oasis is concerning and a number of convoys have already gone missing. While it was known that there were a small number of hibernating males they were not expected to awaken for at least another 7 years. It is believed that military activity by the Imperial Insurrection may have disturbed them from their slumber along with a previously unknown cluster colony. Without a permanent military presence in the area travel through the Obsidian Mountains is now considered impossible.
