System P1-5 "Area 52"

The P1-5 star system, named after its foremost important planet “Area 52”, contains four planets, none of them which are terrestrial or even close to habitable. While planets Pasco I, II and IV are fairly ripe with iron, silicone and, in Pasco IV's case, copper, Pasco III is a barren planet, with very little in the ways of obtainable resources. As a result, Nepleslian Arms and Munitions claimed the seemingly useless barren waste planet and has put it to more beneficial use; testing high-grade explosives and warheads in planetary conditions, which in turn gave rise to the name for Pasco III, Area 52. Because of the military presence around Area 52, the Tienshinhan-class Star Fortress over the planet is almost always occupied by both NAM personnel and military benefactors, as well as several construction yards and industrial craft commissioned by Nepleslian Arms and Munitions to assist in testing and production processes.

Population

While most of the population resides in the safety of the orbital facilities above Area 52, there are several “Safe Zones” present on the surface for operations that need to be grounded. The most prominent of these safe zones is Site 8, which is located almost directly under the planet's orbital defense platforms. Site 8 contains mostly living quarters and a few commercial areas for select organizations, and acts as a transport hub to the other safe-zone sites, as well as the orbital facilities via starport.
