Of all the Central “Core” Planets , Londinum is the most resembling Earth-That-Was. Because of this, it required less work to become hospitable, and was one of the first two planets to be settled. Most of the original colonists from Europe and the Americas came here, where they combined many old traditions and customs with new technology.
Buildings are made of the most modern material, but appear to be made of stone and other archaic architecture; the general look is “imperial gothic”.
The Parliament building and the government complexes surrounding it are the most impressive sights of this planet. This complex includes “the House” (the great debating chamber) as well as a large clock tower.
It seems that all of Londinum’s citizens works for the government or for businesses dealing with the government.
The planet is also home to some of the greatest collections of Western Art in the system.
The center of Alliance control, Londinum has a strong military presence. The Alliance flagship, Victoria, patrols it’s space. It is also home to the SAS (Special Alliance Support) Troops, as well as the Ministry of Intelligence.
Londinum is heavily restricted with “No Fly” zones above and around government buildings. Any ships venturing in these areas are shot down, no questions asked.
