Planet Details:

Wildwood was a member of the Magistracy of Canopus when a Star League Defense Force task force under the command of Captain-General Marion Marik was assigned to conquer the Magistracy in 2577. Wildwood was targeted by the SLDF in the closing stages of the war after the capture of Canopus IV in 2584.

Wildwood was defended by the 2nd Canopian Light Horse and Buquoy's Bandits; the SLDF landed the VII Corps' 59th Brigade and 401st Independent Regiment on Wildwood in 2587 with the 2nd Oriente Hussars in support. Despite being outnumbered almost three to one the MAF regiments contested the invasion, but were forced to retreat to the world of Kossandra's Memory; with the capture of Cate's Hold and the defeat of the garrison there in April 2587, the 2nd Light Horse and Buquoy's Bandits were the only major units from the Magistracy Armed Forces still active within the remains of the Magistracy.

In the 31st century Wildwood is a lush and very sparsely populated planet nearing the outer edge of the Magistracy of Canopus. In spite of a small population Wildwood is the largest producer of wine and other agricultural products in the Magistracy. The planet is essentially demilitarized with the only defenses being a series of automated orbital platforms. Wildwood also fosters a huge tourism industry, especially popular for its tremendous avian population. The demilitarization along with the lack of heavy industry has led to Wildwood being largely spared the strife most of humanity has suffered in the post Star League era.

As of 3068 the economy on the planet was booming though a slowing in Taurian visitors was encountered due to the upheaval in the Concordat at the time. The lush western continent with its unspoiled ancient forests and abundant game has become a very well known adventure and vacation destination. The early 3060's brought Bio-Edge to Wildwood. This ultra high tech pharmaceutical manufacturer managed to become the number two pharmaceutical developer and distributor for the entire inner sphere within six years of establishment on Wildwood. Bio Edge is also purported to be very close to several different profitable ventures in the bio-sciences.

Wildwood's Dolphin Island has become the home of the Whatever Commune, founded by freethinker Connor Henry in 3053. This colony is inhabited by a group of relaxed folk who consider loafing to literally be a sacrament. For this they receive a small stipend from the Canopian government for what has been wryly described as "amusement value". In the agricultural heartland of the planet representations of the Greek goddess of abundance, Demeter, is a common sight.

Interesting to note is the a question of how a planet with only some thousands of permanent population in 3025 has done so much. This tiny permanent population is able to be the "major" agricultural producer for billions of Canopians, home to the second largest producer of pharmaceuticals for several trillion people across the inner sphere, boast a significant tourism industry and yet still have significant portion of the population to be a devoted set of idlers.
