One of the great triumphs of terraforming, this planet is picture-perfect, with clear blue seas, azure skies and ideal weather. Though it has a thriving agriculture, Santo was once known mainly for it’s tourists, who thought the world a paradise. The rich flocked here as an exclusive vacation spot,and resort communities commanded every good view to be had.
The Unification War ended Santo’s glorious days as a destination for the rich and beautiful. Though it has escaped destruction, no one from the Central “Core” Planets dared travel here while the fighting was going on. Hotels and casinos were abandoned. Those that stayed open did so by finding other ways to attract customers. Brothels, strip clubs and other ventures catering to less savory appetites opened up. Santo became known as a “fun” place, no matter what pleasures you’re into. After the war, casino owners found that they could avoid The Alliance restrictions by operating in this out of the way place. The world became a Mecca for high rollers (and those who were not so high).
Santo’s resorts are now beginning to recover. No longer a playground exclusively for the rich, Santos attracts a more middle-class crowd. Its resorts are still beautiful, its small towns picturesque, its casinos open twenty-four seven.
You’ll have a good time here, but you might not want to bring the kiddies.
