The continent’s capital city, Hakkonen is beautiful despite it’s tenuous existence at the edge of the Blood Desert. A maze of graceful, sand-blasted terracite structures from the Second Republic form it’s center, and gold towers and smoked glass thrust out from the desert. Air conditioning comforts the Muster executives, the nearby spaceport, and the nobles in the Duchess’s Crimson Palace. Even those of lesser stature have access to clean water and shelter from the sun’s intense heat. “Every serf a king,” was a popular expression in Hakkonen as little as 50 years ago, though the planet’s increasing prominence has forced many serfs into poorer dwellings as League, Church, and Imperial off-worlders have swarmed to the planets. The great eight-sided Morali Cathedral in Hakkonen houses one of the largest libraries in the Empire.
