Adoraction is ostensibly a Lyran planet, but it is on the far edge of the Inner Sphere. As such, it is considered a backwater, and receives little in terms of official support. It is a barren, desert planet, with little in the way of natural resources, save for a few deposits of rare minerals used in construction.
Adoracions population is divided into dozens of fiercely independent tribes, each of which claims territory for themselves. Sadly, there are many cases where two or more tribes has claimed ownership of a specific piece of land, usually a piece on which a mineral deposit sits. Mining it Adoracions chief industry, and as a result, land control skirmishes are frequent. None of the tribes are wealthy enough to afford much in the way of off-world mercenary forces, relying instead upon the indoctrination of young men and women of to raise new generations of soldiers to take and hold the various mining sites dotted across Adoracion’s surface.
Fighting on Adoracion is constant, and no one is safe. Terrorism and acts of genocide are common. Strict control of import and export by the planetary authority has prevented the deployment of Battlemechs to the planet, so most of the fighting is done guerrilla style, with firearms, explosives, and blade. Bloody feuds between the various factions result in a constant state of open war, with high civilian casualties. Terrorism, genocide, and adolescent warfare are just some examples of the atrocities committed here.
Several tribes have expressed (either openly or covertly) a desire to acquire nuclear weapons, in open defiance of the Ares Convention.
