Terra Nova is a colony world, settled by Earth about twelve hundred years ago. Since then, an economic crash on Earth left the colonies on their own. Terra Nova grew and flourished. Several city-states grew to prominance. There was even a war between the two polar alliances. That changed somewhere around ten years go. Earth, out of its economic slump, came back with military power. And a big chip on its shoulder. The polar forces signed an uneasy treaty and repelled the invasion.
