Lusty Zeltrons were the first colonists of the diverse Bri`ahl landscape. It has been said that wherever Zeltrons land, others will follow. Such was the case on Bri`ahl, and its population soon swelled with pleasure-seekers from across the galaxy. Scruples are to be left in orbit of the planet, as well as organized government. The black market is the de facto economy and underworld elements transported from other systems control every level of government. Characteristically, the pink-skinned settlers were eager to relinquish the power and its burdensome responsibilities, however, by law the Marquis and Marchioness of Bri`ahl must be Zeltron. Elected for a single term, the regents hold court for only three weeks out of the year, during which time the ceaseless revelries are thought to rival even those of Zeltros in their debauchery.
The majority of hedonistic civilization on Bri`ahl stays in the northern hemisphere, with a healthy number of clandestine operations taking place below the equator. A stretch of cities known as the Vertex Way is the most popular destination. Tourists usually start at the beginning of the strip in Kata and eventually find themselves broke, sporting various stages of undress, and wandering the streets of Izbith sometime later.
Bri`ahl was not completely uninhabited when the Zeltrons arrived. A small group of colonists set out to find the elusive natives, whose species is still a matter of debate. The expedition never returned and was thought lost in the sweltering jungles. More recently, however, with the discovery of tattooed Zeltrons known as the Ta`vira Roh, it has been suggested that the early explorers instead found the natives and became infatuated with their mystical ways.
