Hadian city is the capital of Bendali, a sprawling metropolis holding most of Bendali's goverment buildings. Like the majority of the cities on Bendali Hadian City has large slums where the average people live, while the upper class either lives on the edge of the downtown area, or in the subarbs circling the city. The President's House, a large mansion that houses whoever the current president is, sits at the center of the city.
The highest point on Bendali, Mount Rannat was originally a massive mountain with jungle covering it's base, and a pointed peak. However, the Bendalian humans have since strip mined the mountain's interior for valuable ores, leaving it extremely unstable and a danger for avalanches, cave-ins, and landslides.
Bendali's paradise is the largest and most expensive resort on the planet, boasting it's own private lagoon, a shopping mall, eight restaurants, a casino, a massive hotel, swimming pools, a water park, and various other attractions. Bendali's Paradise is considered a fantastic vacation spot for the rich sentients of the galaxy, and generates a huge amount of income.
The smallest continent of Bendali, Rasal is entirely devoted to farming. It's dotted with slummy cities and poor villages, surrounded by massive farms of grains, vegtables, fruits, Bantha, Nerf, as well as some of the medical (and some illegal) herbs of the planet. This is where the Spice Cartels of the planet have their biggest influence, though most of it's leaders live in the cities.
Culture: Bendali could easily be devided into four groups: The upper class, the lower class, the spice cartels, and the tourists. Tourists typically are restrricted to the massive resorts scattered accross the panet- most of which contain shopping centers, restaurants, and anything the tourists could possibly need. Those tourists that do want to leave the resorts usually do so in scheduled tour groups, as to both keep them out of the slums and away from the gang wars and illegal activities of the planet.
The lower class are what keep the planet running. They are typically paid next to nothing, and the slums they live in are usually in extremely poor condition. This leads members of the lower class to often turn to working for the spice cartels of the planet, farming or smuggling spice. Those that stay in legal professions are typically farmers, lumberjacks, factory workers, or do menial labor such as housecleaning at the many resorts of the planet.
The upper class are obviously much better off then the average inhabitants of Bendali. They consist of the rich, owners of companies and goverment officials; those that feed off the wealth generated by Bendali's many exports. It's not rare, either, for a goverment official to have connections in less legal activities.
The spice cartels of the planet arguably have more control then the acutal goverment. Between bribing or blackmailing the goverment and having members within the hundreds of millions (mostly as farmers and smugglers, obviously) even those of the goverment and Bendali's police forces that aren't corrupt are afraid to try anything against them. Of course, this aspect of Bendali's society is kept as hushed as possible. No one wants to hurt tourism.
Technology: Galactic standard, though the slums are often, well... slummy.
History: Bendali was originally beuatiful planet of tropical jungles and white beaches until the Humans came. The Native Bedui lived in the treetops in their simple lifestyle, allowing the world to stay healthy. However, eventually, Humans did come; settlers coming to the world to escape from the Gulag plague Their colonization of the world started small: they set up small colonies and outposts, exploring the bautiful planet. Soon it was found to be a paradise. People were practically trampling over eachother for the chance to start a new life on the beuaitful planet, away from the plague.
The humans diid not bother the native life of Bendali, and vica versa. They started by exploring: their colonies duplicating across the planet. They named the other planets of the system, the two molten ones closest to it's sun given the namesake of the two explorers that first found Bendali. But, eventually, they needed farms. Forest was cleared around their colonies, allowing for farms to be made. The native animals of Bendali were hunted for food, and their habitat was destroyed as the colonies grew. In the coming years the colonies were again too large to survive only on export: they needed factories. So more forest was cleared. Factories dotted the landscape around the planet's colonies and towns, polluting the air while the humans continued to clear jungle and fill rivers to expand.
As the decades went on the humans took advantage of the white beaches and beuatiful lagoons of the planet; building huge resorts for offworld sentients to travel to the planet. All the while more jungle was cleared, more wilderness destroyed. Cities grew larger, more factories pumped smog into the sky. Eventually some of the less savory senteints of the cities began to realize the medicinal purposes of some of the unique plants of the planet... which led both medical researchers and spice dealers to the planet.
After a few hundred years, a great percentage of the jungle had been destroyed, skies had been polluted, much of teh larger wildlife of the planet had been hunted into extinction while much of the smaller wildlife had had their populations reduced or driven into nonexsistence by the small predators brought from the human ships; namely Tookas. With their world being destroyed before their eyes, the native Bedui of the planet had left, believing their spirits to have fled for a cleaner world, and leaving the humans to their evergrowing cities.
Notable PCs: None
Intent: To submit the homeworld of the Bedui
Note: I'll be submitting several species, probably all plant life, from this planet in the near future.
