This mineral-rich planet is known mostly for its massive mining operations. Over three quarters of the population work in one part of the mining industry or another. Most of the mines are run by the Corone Mining Consortium, although there are still a few local owners hanging on. Corone’s workers are underpaid and their working conditions are, more often than not, extremely dangerous. The miners of Regina take stoic pride in their work and the suffering they endure on a daily basis. As if things were not hard enough on them, the ore-processors and atmospheric conditions of Regina have created a disease called Bowden’s Malady. Those afflicted are dependent upon the government for treatment; though it is dropped to a central location and then sent by train to the towns of Regina, shipments do not arrive as often as they should.
