PLANETARY DETAILS:
[3031] The arrival of Carson’s Renegades on Hustaing on 9 May was cause for celebration among some of the local inhabitants who thought they were the vanguard of an invasion by Candace Liao to seize the Celestial Throne. When the mercenaries’ true allegiance became known – as part of the Andurien-Canopian invasion of the Capellan Confederation - Hustaing’s welcome cooled markedly but the Renegades, satisfied they’d drawn the attention of the local CCAF Home Guards, boosted off-world for their next target before the situation turned nasty.

[3060] In September of 3060, the St. Ives Compact's Blackwind Lancers staged an abortive raid against Hustaing. In response, acting as First Lord of the Star League, Capellan Chancellor Sun-Tzu Liao ordered SLDF units to occupy several Compact worlds, ostensibly as peacekeepers.

In January of 3061, the so-called peace-keeping mission turned into a war of aggression when St. Ives units and the SLDF clashed over First Lord Liao's orders to place Compact worlds under martial law. Spurred on by the fervor of the Xin-Sheng movement, Liao forces marched inexorably against the St. Ives Compact worlds, eventually forcing the rogue commonality back into the Confederation fold by June of 3063.

Qingliu is the capital of Hustaing.

[3067]
Hustaing shot to prominence at
the start of the St. Ives conflict as
the world where it was thought the
Chancellor had been captured by the
rogue Blackwind Lancers. When it
came out that the Chancellor had escaped
and his then-fiancée, Duchess
Isis Marik of the Free Worlds League,
had been taken instead, the tension
level scarcely lowered. Not until
House Hiritsu overcame the Blackwind Lancers and forced them to
surrender did the Confederation as a whole draw breath and relax.
The creation of the Hustaing Warriors from surviving soldiers of
the Hustaing Home Guard battalions gave the planet a chance to
claim great honor for the Confederation, and the unit gave sterling
service during the conflict with St. Ives.
Since then, Hustaing’s rise to prominence has earned this formerly
quiet world an economic boom. Tourism has increased
exponentially as Capellan citizens flock to see the famous landmark
battle sites: the intersection where Isis Marik escaped, the
memorial to Warrior House Hiritsu’s dead near the spaceport, even
a re-creation of the small office where House Master Ty Wu Non accepted
the surrender of the disgraced Blackwind Lancers.
Lord Kevin Dittimore has leveraged every angle he can from his
world’s prominence. The planet’s tax base was adjusted following
the Hustaing Warriors’ designation of Hustaing as their official
homeworld, bringing welcome military and industrial contracts to
the planet. A crash program of industrial expansion was completed
in 3066 to jumpstart the military-manufacturing industry. Many of
the personal weapons and small arms used by the Hustaing Warriors
and the rebuilt Hustaing Home Guard are manufactured locally.
The increase in tourism has also brought about a staggering increase
in the arts on Hustaing, as many artists have come to take
advantage of the planet’s large potential customer base. Painters,
in particular, have been selling canvases in truly breathtaking numbers.
Most of the pieces touch on the famous battles in some way,
but not all of them are violent. Several scathing editorials written
by artists in the rest of the Confederation have circulated recently,
deriding the work as too commercial, but several pieces have been
prominently displayed nonetheless in some of the Confederation’s
most respected galleries.

Socio-Industrial Levels:
Technological Development
World of moderate advancement; average educational systems and medical care; microelectronics can not be manufactured.
Industrialization Level
Basic heavy industry at level of 22nd century; fusion engines possible but no complex products (including BattleMechs).
Raw Material Dependence
World/system produces some of the raw materials needed and imports the rest.
Industrial Output
World has an extremely limited industrial base and imports much of its needs.
Agricultural Dependence
World has and environment producing most foods, but relies on some imports for food not capable of being grown.
