Kormin is the fourth planet in the unimaginatively named Kormin System, and is the capital planet of the totalitarian Kormin Empire. Kormin is one of the most prosperous planets in the empire, at the expense of everywhere else, as it is far away from the war front and home of the most powerful Royal House, House Karekas. Currently, Kormin is the most poweful member of the Imperial Core Worlds, being the home of the emperor, Tarkon II Karekas, and is the most important planet in the entire empire.
Kormin is of extreme importance to the empire, because of its extreme historical importance and heavy industry on and around it. A myriad of opulent noble palaces exist across the planet, which are safeguarded by paid mercenary forces as well as small segments of the military.
Kormin is renowned for its endless economic potential within the empire, with many imports and exports to the other major worlds of the empire. Almost everything sent through the Kormin Empire trade lines goes through the planet Kormin at some point, which is taxed to generate revenue for the government. As a result of this, life on Kormin is more untouched than any other planet in the entire nation.
Kormin has many artificial structures in orbit, most of which are heavily devoted to defense of the planet. Due to the Kormin Empire's current state of war, huge amounts of resources have been devoted to making Kormin as protected as possible.
Drahk-Verr Defense Network
The Drahk-Verr Defense Network is the largest defensive network of its kind in the Lareas Galaxy. It contains output wormholes from Nicoll-Dyson Beams around high-mass stars near it, which can fire a very powerful beam at an approaching ship, as well as literal billions of tons of weaponry. The Drahk-Verr Defense Network is not one single structure, it is in fact a huge series of stations surrounding the outer edge of the hill sphere, beyond the moon Cerra, which has itself been turned into a massive war fortress.
Because of this massive structure, it is widely believed that a direct assault on Kormin is not possible, and the war must be won by other means.
Orbiting a relatively large red dwarf, Kormin has a large enough Hill Sphere to contain one medium-sized major moon and one asteroid moon, which are in a 2/3 orbital resonance with each other. These moons are heavily populated, and the larger moon, Jekra, is partially paraterraformed.
