System: Sol

Historic Federal capital. Administration and Tourism.

Historic system famous as both the birthplace of Humanity and as the political capital of the Federation. A very expensive and prestigious system to live in, and a popular tourist venue. Most rich humans will visit Earth once in their lives. All the major corporations have their headquarters on Mars, terraformed in 2286, which is the main centre for administration.

Sol's lack of existence in the Elite/Oolite games is addressed in Lore.
