Kennewes is a former capital of the Uesureyan Star Empire. The USE would eventually become the Nepleslian and Yamataian Empire. It is a flat, humid planet where much of the surface is covered in swamp.

Like Democratic Imperium of Nepleslia, it is somewhat prone to violence, but on a larger scale. Rather than gangs, combatants once included large military factions. The most notable were the Nepleslian Army (Green-shirts), the Reds, and the Yellows. Traveling to Kennewes to search for old military souvenirs is a popular pastime for Yamataians and especially Nepleslians, as there are plenty to go around.
Kennewes is home to Kennewes University.
