Kalifornia is a hospitable, relatively Earthlike but slightly dry world. Its atmosphere is nitrogen-oxygen tainted with industrial pollutants. Natives are used to the pollutants but offworlders need to wear a filter mask or they will have asthmatic type responses. The government is a morass of bureaucracy that only occasionally responds to the will of the people.
Kalifornia was one of the first worlds in Hope sub-sector that was settled from Washington. There was never any attempt to remain connected to the homeworld and the colony quickly went its own way. For the last century and a half, Kalifornia and Texas have been engaging in on-and–off warfare as each has attempted to establish or maintain control over Hope sub-sector.
