"The Heart of the United Alliance and the Jord Nebula, it is among the most diverse worlds in the entire Galaxy and even the Universe. Here species from all over, live in harmony and peace as equals and friends. A model for all that stability and prosperity can endure in this universe. A possible Utopia for all. Kreon is a rich dense world, where everything can be found if it exists" - Scientist and Explorer, Lisa Martinez
This world is the Capital Planet of The United Alliance, located in the Nanda System, in the Lewis Galaxy. Today it's an ecumenopolis that evolved from an arid planet, colony of the back then, Lewis Federation. It's famous for its diversity, with several alien species living on the planet.
The planet was originally an arid mining colony of The Lewis Federation, that lied in the Jord Nebulae. It was isolated from the central worlds of the Galaxy, on the fringes of the Federal space. Nearby colonies had also been established as well as some being settled by other alien races.
Originally, it was an arid planet, right before its surface was overshadowed by skyscrapers and mayor titanium buildings. In spite of being arid and with very few vegetation in its surface (lichens and barely anything else), it had huge deposits of drinkable water underground and a huge amount of mining resources on its surface. The water deposits were actually vast and deep oceans, kilometers below the surface. This could hold without problem a colony of the Lewis Federation, even if apparently, it lacked drinkable water.
The mining resources made the planet economically attractive. The surface was rich in iron, copper, and many other less common minerals. There were also some gas deposits. All these resources were exploited by mining and extracting companies, attracting many settlers from all over the Federation to this new "El Dorado". Even today, those vast mineral resources are still exploited.
The climate was arid, but temperatures were somehow low and the climate wasn't too dry either, what made life possible and bearable at ease for the settlers of Kreon, although livable was still somehow harsh. Some areas even were tundric, with snow in the northern and southernmost latitudes. With the Urbanization process, the climate changed a bit, raising temperature and making it more comfortable for live. Due to this, summer is hotter and winter less cold than in the pre-urbanization days. The planet lacks big precipitations, being those pretty rare and concentrated in two separate months of the year. However, the Atmosphere is solid and clouds are common, with many cloudy days covering the skies in many areas. Fog is common in the Poles and the nearby latitudes but quite rare in other areas of the Planet.
In the few areas where the native oceans keep coming up to the surface, green oasis formed, but there were just few locations where this happened. Nowadays some of this areas have been preserves as Domes, usually called "Gardens" by the locals, being the only lungs of Kreon where mass urbanization hasn't really happened and are the only beacon of natural native live remaining in the planet.
This areas are still urbanized around and are the most expensive neighborhoods of the Planet and the entire Nation, where only the richest citizens of the United Alliance can afford to live.
The Planet was first discovered by imperial scientists, but due to its far distance, the planet wasn't really mapped or deeply explored. Federal scientists were the first to actively execute exploration missions to explore. Kreon was found to be rich in resources, so a big Federal program was established to settled and exploit the planet. At first, it was thought to be unsuitable for life or any lack of prosper, due to its absence of water, until further exploration was carried out and vast amounts of water where discovered underground.
The Colony was founded by the Lewis Federation in 50 366 CE. Some mining companies where granted rights to operate in the planet, and thus, they were charged with the task of recruiting and bringing settlers.
With time, the Colony prospered and kept growing in population and importance. The economy kept relying heavily in mining and extraction.Export of drinkable water was also a source of income, as well as Chemical and Industrial conversion of some mined or extracted resources.
The Colony was a place of refuge, almost lawless since it was far from the Lewis Federation nucleus, and was located in a growing area of colonization on the fringes of the nation. Kreon was a new opportunity haven for the poor and the most disfavoured people, looking for jobs in the mining industries that allowed them to prosper. It was a chance for many to start all over again. Many cities and settlements began to flourish all over.
The planet wasn't pleasant, due to its aridity, and is sparse vegetation, being its living conditions quite harsh in the early days. That made the Kreonians be famous as hardworking and strong people, as well as entrepreneurs. Several mining companies, like "Ypsilon", were born and developed here. This multinational operates still internationally in many planets, and its still one of the biggest mining companies in the Lewis Galaxy (and other Galaxies) and one of the biggest multinationals in the United Alliances.
Government and History
The Planet was ruled by a series of Big Guilds that operated in each town and city. All together formed a planetary council known as The Guild Council. Every member of the Guild was elected by citizens vote to represent the interest of each field of work, such as mining, Trade, chemistry, gas extraction, food production, distribution, hospitality, defense medical care, etc.
One of the members of the Council was then elected by its peers in the council to represent the interest of Kreon in the Parliament of the Lewis Federation. Different tensions and conflicts between the Guilds and the interest of the Lewis Federation kept growing, and independence theories and ideas kept growing among the inhabitants of the planet as well as other Federal colonies in the Jord Nebula.
This led to the War of Independence between the Jord Nebula Colonies and the Federation. Other non-human planets in the Nebula had the same issues and resentment against their respective nations and had also common interest with its Human neighbors in the Jord Nebula. So this Alien Planets also join the War of Independence. Other independent colonies also joined.
This Alliance between the planets defended the interest of the inhabitants of the Jord Nebula against the power and might of the Galactic powers.
The Federation was the most active nation suppressing this rebellion. The area was remote, less known by them than by the locals, and several attacks and guerrilla tactics ended up with great defeats. All planets in the Nebula joined military and economic forces to defeat their attackers, doing it so with success. All planets united in Kreon to sign the Independence agreement with a pact of mutual perpetual alliance against their enemies, joining forces and strength to gain their independence.
This event marks officially the birth of the Alliance and made Kreon the unofficial Capital. War proved to be difficult and devastating for Alien and Federal forces. The inhabitants fighted fiercely, and when attackers disembarked in allied planets, they had to face strong opposition of the locals, with guerrillas and revolts, that proved unsustainable for the attackers.
The Federation and other Powers reunite in Kreon to sign peace with the United Alliance and finally recognise them as a nation.The members later on, also signed the common United Alliance Constitution, making them an official separate and multispecies Country.
The Alliance was first known as the Jord Union or the Alliance of the Mining Planets, but when independence was finally signed, the name finally changed to The United Alliance, since not all planets belonged to the Nebula, nor all where anymore only mining planets. Every planet still holds much independence in many aspects, with several joined policies and actions, that have worked as a federation.
Kreon quickly became a center por the Companies and Businesses that did not wanted to pay tax on the other big nations on the Lewis Galaxy, since by that time, it was a rather small new nation. Also many companies were born from the new needs of the nation. The policy of open borders for migrants, was a magnet for refugees and migrants from all over the Galaxy and from other distant Galaxies as well.
This made Kreon a very diverse world, with many intelligent species from all over the Galaxy and the known world living together. In Kreon, this led to a population explosion and economic boom, that made the density of population increase so much that the surface started to be urbanized more and more, and by 112 966 CE, it had already become an Ecumenopolis.
Today, Kreon is the most important planet of the United Alliance and in it is to be found the Huge Parliament of the Nation, the government Body of the Country and the Chancellery. Kreon hold many multinationals and other main public organisms as well as many state building and key departments. One of them is the National Bank.
The Planet holds 5 Quadrillion inhabitants, making it the most populated and dense world in the entire Lewis Galaxy by far. It makes up to 2,5% of the total population of the United Alliance, and has a huge amount of Alien species living in it. This massive concentration of population is among the most diverse in the known Universe.
In the Alliance, Slavery is completely forbidden, however it still exists undercover, and Kreon is not an exception for this, with many slaves smuggled into the Planet illegally.
The use of narcotics and other drugs have been in use since the times of the colony, but are also consider quite illegal, with only some permitted. This has put the use of them under a strict scrutinium by the authorities. Still thousands of illegal substances flow into Kreon by local bands.
The Planet is home to more than 3000 Alien species. No other place in the known universe is more diverse and multicultural. Kreon is considered to be a land of refuge for many.

The immigration to the planet was massive and thousands of people coming from other nations looking for liberty, a scape way or a place to start again settled in the Alliance and Kreon. The U.A was sparsely populated and thus had little migrant controls to attract new settlers. Kreon due to its wealth and quality of live presented many attractive opportunities. Not only migrants from other human nations, like the Lewis Nations came, also from nations all over the Universe.
They make up to 33% of the population. They are the most common species in the planet, as they are the founders and first inhabitants of Kreon, coming as settlers from the Lewis Federation. Later on, other human settlers from other nations came to live in the planet. Also humans from other worlds of the United Alliance came seeking opportunities to the planet. Humans from other nations exist in the planet. Out of the total 33% of humans in Kreon, around 22% are native to the U.A while around 11% come from other nations; like the other Lewis Nations, the nations in the CoB (the UFSS, the Nexus of Humanity, etc...), the Neo-Terran Intergalactic Hegemony, the Ambrosia Alliance of United Systems, the nations in Verpletter, etc...
Sub-humans or humanoid derived species of Verpletter
They make up to 1,2% of the Entire population of Kreon, they arrived to the planet as either freed slaves, or as immigrants who came seeking fortune or new opportunities outside their home galaxy. Some came for adventure, others for job opportunities or seeking a new home for some other reason. Species like the Elaven, the Dwanvo, the Qar-Qar, the Orork, the Skyborne, the Aquasi, the Sürunen, the Frugis, the Yettar, the Empatehr, the Magi and the Pyros.
They are the second most common species in Kreon, and one of the most common in the United Alliance. They make up 11% of the population. The first Aldorians came in the time of the colony, as refugees or ex-slaves escaping from the Aldorian High Kingdom and other Aldorian Nations. In fact, much of modern Aldorians are descent from ex-slaves who run away.
Some other Aldorians came looking for trade, such as some Inosh from the Aldorian League, settling in Kreon and making commercial districts that endure to this day. Since the colony times, when Kreon was a lawless place of the Federation, many Uhara Aldorians settled here as mercenaries, smugglers or criminals. Some still take care of underground illegal business such as gambling, gun dealing and drug commerce.
Some other Aldorian migrants from the Confederacy, the Dominum and other aldorian nations have migrate here in search of new opportunities. Some are internal migrants from other Aldorian member planets of the United Alliance. They are known as snobby and arrogant, since they are founding members of the United Alliance and believe themselves superior to the other migrant or immigrant-descendent aldorians, even if they make the majority nowadays.
They make up 9% of the Population. Some came from the Arati colonies in the Jord Nebula, with some migrating directly from the Arati nation, seeking opportunities and prosperity in Kreon. They have manage to make one of the most numerous species in Kreon, due to the Arati being native to the Lewis Galaxy and their planets being nearby Kreon and the United Alliance core worlds, while other species have to come from other Galaxies.
They are 8% of the entire Population of Kreon. They move to the planet for economical reasons, with some coming from member planets of Murban origin in the United Alliance, and some directly from the Murban nation. They have manage to settled in Kreon as scientists and high skill workers, famous for their efficiency they have manage to climb the social scale, with many being among the richest families in the Planet.
They make up 7% of the total population of Kreon. Up to 30% are migrants or migrant descent people from the Krizik Dominium, 23% can trace back to the Krizik Regime and 22% to the Krizik Stratocracy. 25% came from inner Krizik planets, founding members of the United Alliance. Most Krizik came here looking to make fortune in Kreon, specially from the Regime and the Stratocracy. Nevertheless, the Krizik from the Dominium came as mercenaries or running away from the oppressive rule of that nation, searching a better live.
They were mostly attracted by economic opportunities, due to its high degree of urbanization and population. Many migrated from the Commonwealth and the Confederacy, while some were brought directly by authorities to help on the urbanization process of the planet in the early days.
They make up 4% of the Population. Due to their advance technologies, some of them have made Kreon their home. Some come from member Noraki planets of the United Alliance, while others, specially the less favour ones in Noraki society have tried to start again in this country and specially in the capital, Kreon.
Are a species from Koor, that they call K'stoor, and make up 3% of the entire planet population. Most of them are escaped slaves from the Aldorian Nations. When Neikoor was created most of the Koor from Kreon left and its percentage drastically dropped. Still, some Koor remained in Kreon and are a dynamic species within the society of the Planet. Most speak aldorian tongues even to this day, but most have abandoned their Aldorian languages in favour of Kreonese.
The Koor species has 90% of its population in slavery with 10% of them living in freedom. Out of this 10%, most live within the United Alliance, with some others living in the Aldorian Confederacy. Very very few live in the Lewis Federation. Most of the Koors on Kreon and in the United Alliance are the descendants of ex-slaves, escaped from the Aldorian Nations.
Made out of 3% this species came to Kreon seeking opportunities to prosper. Some came as builders and designers for expansionist projects in the Planet and for the construction of the future Ecumenopolis that Kreon is today. As a result, most stayed and made Kreon their home.
They are 1% of the population, came as traders, immigrants looking for new opportunities and as refugees seeking a new home.
They make up 1% of the population. Almost all came as ex-slaves or escaped slaves from other nations (Mostly the Aldorian Nations), with some being brought directly to Kreon as slaves and sold in the black market. Most ended up being freed sooner or later by authorities, with some still living undercover in slavery, most notably in the underworlds of the Planet.
First generation Khlakhun slaves are very rare in Kreon, because as soon as they escape, they go back to their home nation. However, Khlakhun who have been born slaves and live their entire live in their masters nations, end up in Kreon after escaping, as the Khlakhun Nation is as foreign to them as any other nation. They mostly have Aldorian and mixed Klakhun cultures.
They are 0,2% of the Population and came to Kreon after contact from the U.A with the Ambrosia Galaxy. This led to many species flocking into the Planet either to trade, or to look for a better live here.
This species makes 0,8% of the planets population
Made out 0,3% of the entire population, they came through Kreon, thanks to commercial contact with the Ambrosia Galaxy. Some came to live in the Planet as traders and diplomats, while others simply looked for better opportunities here.
This species makes 0,2% of the planets population, and came here after contact with the Ambrosia Galaxy. Most came as traders, but other came to start a new live in Kreon.
These are an artificial species that were created by the Samians, in order to assure the survival of the Samian Hivemind. But when they were discovered by the Di'Vaornians and Nar'Gorrians, most of them were taken into the Silver League, while only a small group of them fled to Kreon to live in a more democratic society. Their population here on Kreon numbers at 30, making them one of the most endangered life on the planet.
They make a 0,1% of the entire population of Kreon. Most of them arrived as dissidents, runaways, outcasts or deserters from their nation, seeking a new home with a different approach to other Aliens or either cybernetics. Those that did not convey with the traditional Verd'nim'tosh xenophobia or with cybernetics, migrated to Kreon.
- Races from the Verpletter Galaxy
They make in all about 2,9% of the population. The species that make this compendium of races are the Oswaihr, the Elmaren, the Asren-Asheir, the Casorian, the Ther'Hakan, the Ik'Ik'Vikira, the Zek'eke'zka, the Esads, the Famom-Patar, the Zrelgerian, the Yarshen, the Krietok, the Paradeni, the Kessenski, the Borshann, the Zetruiter, the Ghoz'ek, the Uuqaik, the Agreb-Nakir-Lazen, the Kustreok, the Xugzar, the Os'ai, the Ver, the Ancek, the Yehrer, the Ens'Starre, the Fokkats, the Ayxi and the Sarshak.
Those coming from Verpletter can arrive on Kreon for any variety of reasons. Many came as refugees, seeking opportunity or adventure, or as escaped slaves. Others arrived on the world with the goal of recruiting others into their Factions, and bringing them back to Verpletter, or to otherwise spread their ideology within the wider universe.
Important Buildings and Organizations
Due to the planet's diversity, Kreon holds some important buildings of the Intergalactic Council. On the other hand is also the seat of the Cooperation & Aid Organization for Peace (the CAOP), made to improve relations, helps nations in need due to war or catastrophes as well as increase peace and promote coexistence among Alien races in the Universe.
It also holds the center of the Organization for Protection of Primitive Aliens (the OPPA), made to protect cultures and species that have not yet made it into space colonization and are unaware of other alien species or technologies. This organization protects any interaction between advanced and primitive species so not to intervene in its natural development.
- Underground Sectors
These are the most dense and crowded areas in the entire planet. Most of them lied within the planetary floor, in the lower and older layers of the massive ecumenopolis. Most new arrived inhabitants chose this places as their new homes, as their are cheap accomodation and are the best place to be invisible if that is what you seek. This sectors however, have a strong presence of criminal activity.
Most notably the Farshlag Syndicate operates in the area. Slaves and drugs, that are outlawed and severely persecuted can be pretty much seen in this places. Some areas, are famous however for its nightlife and ambiance, and are popular destinations for Kreonese inhabitants to entertain themselves. Although some areas are dangerous not all of them are.
- Luxury Districts
Those are the most expensive and luxurious regions of Kreon. Most notably they are located within the only natural spot in the entire world, the lagoons and vegetation domes. Some of the large buildings on its higher floors contain many expensive housing, or shops for the affluent.
- Middle Districts
This are common people's areas, they are set in between the Luxury above regions and the Underground Sectors. They live in the somehow confortable areas, with most of the shops targeted to them being located in the floor.
- Government, High-Tech, Research and Service Sectors
This areas are most notably dedicated to design and create high-tech, being the seat of offices, research laboratories, engineering studios, educational centers such as universities and others. This sectors are also the seat of banks, companies, insurances and many others. They are usually very crowded in working hours, usually daytime.
This sectors also held Government centers and oficial building etc... They are usually beautiful areas, and are for the most part, not densely populated. In fact luxury districts intermingle with this sectors. Some like the Chancellery, the Herschel Council institutions, the seat of the National Library etc.. are located in this districts sparsely located throughout the Planet to avoid concentrating all the institution on one area of Kreon.
- Industrial Sectors
Are scattered here and there, they are mostly based on industrial production, manufacturing, chemicals and processing of minerals. Most are not inhabitable, but some underground people do live in this areas, most notably criminals and illegal immigrants. This sectors are meant to be the producing centers of industrial activity in the Planet.
- Dome Districts
Those are domes located all over the planet, here and there, imitating all sort of biomes and atmosphere parameters, to accommodate comfortably all the different alien species who can live or aren't comfortable in Kreon's atmosphere and parameters. Although most alien races who can't breath Kreon's air but can stand its atmosphere use breathing masks, they have some domes for them to relax from time to time or even as their primary home, just wearing the mask when they venture out.
- Agricultural Sectors
This are areas, dedicated to farming. They are located in the least populated areas, and are domes dedicated to basically produces goods that are expensive to import. Most of the rest is literally imported from outside. The nearby world of Teleos, was terraformed with the only purpose of being an Agricultural world to feed the numerous mouths of Kreon.
- Mining Sectors
These sectors are on the decline, and being replaced by accomodation districts, but they still exist. They are based on extracting minerals, with some dedicated to extracting the vital water of the underneath ocean. Other mining sectors are used for Gas extraction as well. They are a maze of pulps and others tubes, transporting their resources to industrial sectors to be processed and used.
It can be said that religion is very much present all over the planet. All known religions are said to be in Kreon, and numerous temples to those religions can be seen here and there in the ecumenopolis lay out. The most famous religions are notably the Lewis Religions: Like the Cult of the Eternal Flame and the Cult of the Emperors, the Unionist Religion, among others. Also other famous religions among humans are the Cult of the Black Sun, the Cult of the Silverstar, imported from the CoB. There are also religions imported from even far away lands, like Fuukanism.
The Alien religions are very much present as well, most notably the Aldorian religions, who make the second largest species in Kreon, like the Aldorian Gods Religion, the Aldorian Ancestors Religion and the Aldorian Five but also other religions are present, with temples here and there as frequent as any other building can be.
