New Deutschland is a planet approximately 400 lightyears from UNSC territory. It has always been in complete control of the Koch Republik.
Geography and Climate
New Deutschland's geography and climate makes it quite suitable for human occupation. There are five continents that make up the main landmasses of the planet. The largest continent, Burrae, is around twice the size of Eurasia and the primary location of the Koch Republik. Burrae makes up the entire northern arctic circle and reaches 45km past the equator. Third, the planet's size makes its gravity slightly stronger than Earth's, though this has no effect on inhabitants because the atmosphere contains twice as much Oxygen as Earth's, meaning the gravity barely affects them because their body takes in more oxygen to make up for it.
Since the planet is literally on its side in terms of axial tilt, the northern and southern arctic circles are ideal locations for farming for one fourth of the year. When the poles are in their prime agricultural season, they are in a constant daytime because they are always facing the star. However, the area in between the poles, known as the Central, is much more "normal." During opposite quarters of the year, this area features nearly equal amounts of day and night. When the poles are in their agricultural seasons, the Central is in either slightly dim or nearly dark, depending on location. The continents of the planet surprisingly required little terraforming when colonized. The land is fairly flat with only a few mountain ranges, rich in multiple metals, including ores needed to refine steel and aluminum. Almost all of the remaining landmass is covered in a massive grassland and is perfect for growing many types of crops. In the "tropical" areas of the planet, sugar-cane, cocoa trees, and rubber trees are very common sights. This a abundant food source allowed the Koch Republik to flourish.
