Planet Details:

Kaumberg was settled for it's vast mountain ranges and forest lands. Though mining would seem to be a logical industry for the world, most of Kaumberg's economy is based on the timber trade. The original settlers arrived in the 24th century and were a mix of Germans and Austrians. These colonists were impressed by the terrain that reminded them of the Alps and other mountain ranges that were near their traditional homesteads.

Over time Kaumberg's families set up a semi-democratic process that elected one of the families to power. Since the initial colonization, most political power has been concentrated in the hands of two families: The Hasseldorfs and the LeSats. During the FedCom Civil War the tensions between these two families boiled over into armed conflict and the resulting battles razed much of the planet and decimated the planetary defense forces as well as both houses. Even after spending several years in recovery, the lumber exports had only reached 75% of their pre-Civil War levels.
