Osara is by almost any standard a lovely world with a largely temperate climate and stable geology. It was a valuable piece of colony real estate when the war against the Ylir began but when the conflict broke out those who had settled here had mostly been devoured. It took considerable carpet bombing to wip out the Ylir presence and even then it took another decade of ground based intense search and destroy missions to eliminate any and all nests. By the time the fighting was done no trace of the settlements remained and the corporations that had bankrolled the colonies had gone bankrupt. The newly formed Confederacy government opted to seize the planet and make it the seat of power for the government.
Over the centuries Osara has been settled by millions, both those who fuel the bureaucracy that run this part of the galaxy as well as those that support its various infrastructures. The planet is protected by a ring of manned orbital defense satellites as well as two fleets of vessels that patrol the inner and outer system. The capital, Sturgeo (named after the first Chairman of the Confederacy, Duchess Lir Sturgeo), is a pristine metropolis containing numerous statues and landmarks celebrating the history of the Confederacy and its heroes, both military and political.
